    Excellent find! Wonder what they mean about mouth structures....and now they can't find the maxilla/mandible? Wonder if the UID had braces and that's what they meant.

    You are going to turn this in, right?

    ETA: Sometimes I wonder if some departments only upload the UID case to NamUs when they think they have a possible match already, so maybe they already are looking at her.

    The email on the doe page for Pamela (5710@co.merced.ca.us) bounced back.
    There are either no case managers in namus, or they only have phone contacts. (Phoning is no good for me).

    Can someone call this one in?

    I talked to an official about her once about a year ago, which prompted me to put her on the featured cold case list. Back then I thought she looked like a UID in Arizona. They seem to think she is closer to home. I'm sorry but I didn't keep the contact information.

    Pamela has a cousin who is looking for answers whose name here is RAP66. Feel free to contact him. I'm sure he'll be happy to know we haven't forgotten about Pamela.

    Thumbs up Thanks for the info

    Hello


    thanks for the heads up. I passed the link to my mother, she keeps in contact with my aunt. To me the details look very close however only one person has the exact info for her. So I just find myself being the messenger.

    Thanks Kimster for letting me know.


    FYI - this is from a newpaper article I posed last year:

    Anyone with questions about the vigil can call the Merced County Sheriff's Department at (209) 385-7608. Anyone with information about Pedro's case should call the Major Crimes Unit at (209) 385-7472.

    They mean they took and preserved the upper and lower jaws -- but not the complete skull -- and now they can't find them.

    Sometimes they make x-rays and just keep the teeth, but they don't usually refer to that as "mouth structures."
    Opinions expressed are strictly my own (who else would they belong to???)

    Question

    Can someone verify the location... I'm checking maps and McKenzie Rd, Coos Bay, and Elk river seem too far apart?

    Thanks

    Yes, the Elk River does empty into the Pacific Ocean near Cape Blanco. This is quite a bit South of Coos Bay, and even south of Coos County, in the neighboring Curry County.

    Looking at the locations from the report it's still confusing.

    Anyways, I'll be talking with my mother tomorrow to see what her thoughts are. The family (immediate aunts & uncles) were asked to submit DNA, but that was in reference to the other investigations with the speedfreak killers. So hopefully questions will be answered soon; 30yrs is a long time of wondering.

    Pamela's Namus file is still visible so I assume nothing ever came of this possible match? https://www.findthemissing.org/cases/6505

    The UID's Namus file has several portions hidden -- no ruleouts list, and the comments about mouth structures are no longer visible either.https://identifyus.org/en/cases/10886
