    This no photo NamUs MP casefile has been in the system since 2009.

    There's not alot of info on her, but I found three photos of her (including her senior portrait) in the 1967 Omaha Central High School yearbook (when she was about 18 years old). She went missing in 1981 at the age of 30, so she was much older at the time that she went missing. But nevertheless, she has a distinctive facial shape.

    don't you find it stunning that someone can take the time to fill out a MP report and not care to provide a single photograph of the person?

    I realize there could be cases where a family is dirt poor and photography is a luxury, but come on now. you took the time to find a HS graduation picture of Anne. surely her family could have done better than that unless there is some sinister reason for not doing so.

    The family might have produced photos to go with the missing person report even if they haven't been uploaded in Namus. If she was reported missing sometime in the 1980's that's plenty of time for lost case files etc.

    Broken nose and tooth makes you think of domestic or child abuse but it could also be from some "innocent" cause like a fall or traffic accident.

    This is an area where some thought a serial killer might have been operating in the 1980s and 90s. Tammy Zywicki being the most famous possible victim.
    This my opinion and to the best of my knowledge, that is, if I'm not joking.

    What about Paula Lynch? 5'8" is in the ballpark, weight about 15 pounds off, but that could fluctuate in a year or two (or have been a rough estimate to begin with.)

    Paula would have been 23-24 by then...at the young end of the age range.

    She was blonde, like the UID and the tattoos probably would not have been recognizeable given the postmortem interval.

    She was from Sandusky, Ohio, and last heard from in Marathon, FL in 1978, but she left home to "see the country" so winding up in IL is not unreasonable.

    She sure does look like the recon.

    Sure. I'd say she's possible.

    There are a whopping 130 rule-outs listed in NamUs. Paula is not one of them.

    https://identifyus.org/en/cases/3153

    Note: NamUs doesn't say anything about the few blonde or light brown hairs either. FYI.

    The similarities of the bone structure around the eyes is spooky. I would be surprised if shes not.

    Paula's DNA sample is submitted but the tests are not complete. I plan on trying to call it in tomorrow. If we did nothing, NamUs would probably rule in/out anyway (assuming we're dealing with apples to apples in terms of nucDNA/mtDNA), but maybe if the detective on the case thinks it's a good possible they can have it expedited.

    Paula's DNA is now listed as Sample Submitted - Tests Complete. There are now 148 rule outs in NamUs, but Paula is still not one of them. Never did hear back from LE about Paula. That was on the MP side though. Perhaps I need to make a call to the UID side...seems like they're pretty invested in solving this.

    Talked to Will County today...they are going to check with UNT re Paula. Very impressed with their cold case detective too.
