    Devore / Cajon Pass is the first unpopulated area that you get to when leaving the Inland Empire (E. LA County/W. San Bernadino County) toward Las Vegas.

    Although the body was found adjacent to the Southbound side of I-15, I suspect that this was a location of convenience for someone who got there heading Northbound from the Inland Empire.

    Donna Loraine Croce fits quite well to the limited info available on this Jane Doe.


    http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/c/croce_donna.html

    She doesn't have a NamUs MP Casefile, so she might not be on their radar.

    She came from Whittier, which is about a 45-minute drive from Devore. (The normal flow of traffic is about 75 mph in those parts.) If I was in Whittier and looking for the closest dumping ground, Devore would be high on my list.

    The timeline is right-on, and her height (4'10") is pretty close to the 5'0" estimate of the skeletal remains.


    When I think of Devore, I think of the 1983 Us Festival, (i.e., a three-day music festival organized by Apple Computer pioneer Steve Wozniak, as a means of showcasing his line of Apple Computers). I was there. What a chaotic mass of humanity that was (LOL)

    This UID has a cap on her #10 (upper left lateral incisor).

    According to Charley Project, Cynthia Lynn Maine has a cap on one of her upper front teeth.


    http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/...e_cynthia.html

    And her height, age, and timeframe all fit too.

    ETA: I submitted this one via e-mail to David Van Norman

    Van Norman replied indicating that there were numerous irreconcilable differences in their dentals, so this Jane Doe is not Cynthia Lynn Maine.

    But if Cynthia Maine comes up as a possible elsewhere, we now know that she had "numerous" fillings.

    I just spoke with Det. Fisher of the Whittier PD. I had created a NamUs MP casefile for Donna Croce over a year ago, but it wasn't published.

    I suggested that she contact Donna Southerland to have the casefile published, and to ask that she arrange for a comparison of Donna Croce to UP2583.

    Seems like a possibility based on height (shorter than average) and location, did anyone submit?
