    VT - Danby, AsianFem Skull UP10004, 15-40, along roadside, Feb'12

    Detectives, troopers and canines were combing the [Danby] area to find human remains -- more of them.

    'Like four, five cops drove by," said Devon White, who lives at the bottom of Danby Hill Road. That's where police said someone found a human skull.
    The medical examiner determined the skull belongs to a young adult woman and said that it showed signs of trauma. State police said that could be a sign of foul play ...
    Troopers said they are also considering the proximity and multitude of graveyards on Danby Hill Road because they said it's possible someone or something dug up a skull from one of the graves.

    The woman's identity has yet to be determined. State police confirmed that the skull had been on the side of the road for quite some time.

    I immediately thought of two names:

    Brianna Maitland and Maura Murray


    http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/...d_brianna.html
    http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/m/murray_maura.html

    ... but neither of them were missing from that immediate vicinity. Brianna was last seen about 150 miles from Danby, and Maura was last seen about 100 miles from Danby.


    Heide Wilbur is another possibility. Middletown Springs is only about 15 miles from Danby.

    The discovery of a human skull in Danby has police re-examining missing persons cases-- and two cases in particular have caught the attention of investigators.
    While awaiting DNA analysis that could identify the victim, detectives are checking missing persons cases. Two that appear to fit the criteria are Brianna Maitland who disappeared from Montgomery in 2004, and Heide Wilbur who went missing from Middletown Springs in 1991.

    Do we have any clue on the approximate age of this skull yet? I read about it on a Maura Murray blog and immediately had several possibilities jump to mind in addition to the ones already suggested, but most of them were from the 1970s or '80s. My bets would be on Heidi Wilbur from the location but again depending on the age there are many other possibilities if you cast a larger radius including Selinda Winegar, Lynn Burdick (from MA but only about 60 miles from Danby), Iris Brown, Lynn Katheryn Shultz, etc.

    Nothing yet. This article mentions Brianna Maitland and Heidi Wilbur, but say only that they fit the general description.

    The discovery of a human skull in Danby has police re-examining two missing persons cases in particular. While awaiting DNA analysis that could identify the victim, detectives are checking missing persons cases. Two that appear to fit the criteria are Brianna Maitland who disappeared from Montgomery in 2004, and Heide Wilbur who went missing from Middletown Springs in 1991. Police caution that those are only two possibilities and that the victim could be another missing person, someone who was never reported missing or someone from out of state.

    I do wonder about Maura Murray. It is a case that has somehow grabbed me like no other ever has. It just doesn't add up to me. At all.

    Did police say when the results would be back?

    No way to know. Could be days. Could be longer, especially if it is not one of the three girls mentioned (Maura, Brianna, or Heide). Or for that matter, could be never.

    Never!? Do they sometimes withhold the results!?

    I am thinking more like they might never be able to match it up to anyone.

    There would be DNA for the more recent missing girls. My first thought was Maura and I still have not heard anything on it either.

    There is now a NamUs UP casefile for this UID.

    https://identifyus.org/en/cases/10004

    They are now saying that she could have been as old as 40.
