    TX - Austin, WhtFem Skel UP10988, 24-38, Found by Survey Crew, Dec'12, Kellie Hall

    http://www.statesman.com/news/news/c...nd-in-s/nTbQ8/

    A crew of construction workers came across what was later confirmed to be a human bone while they surveyed a private property about 2:30 p.m. Tuesday in the 7100 block of East Riverside Drive near Ben White Boulevard.
    Search-and-rescue teams combed through the 9-acre tract Wednesday and found more remains within the brush, said Austin police Sgt. Scott Ehlert of the homicide unit.

    Police believe the bones could have been there for anywhere between three months to several years.

    Kellie Hall went missing and her car was found at the Waffle House.

    TX - Kellie "Wednesday" Hall, 29, Beaumont/Austin, 25 April 2009 - Websleuths Crime Sleuthing Community

    The location the remains were found is just a mile away walking. Farther if you have to drive it with the divided highway get around and her car was left in the Waffle House parking lot.

    you'd think Kellie would be potential match #1 given all the details.

    I'd submit her name right away. they don't have identifiers for Kellie but with this body being found, it might light a fire under someone's feet to get someone from her family to submit a DNA sample.

    I wonder if this could be one of the many homeless, transient, or panhandlers that are in the Austin area. I've been in this area a few times and its not in the most safest part of Austin.

    I wouldn't be able to give it the proper attention or followup so please feel free to submit it. I hope it is so obvious to the investigators that getting the family's DNA is already in progress but nothing surprises me these days.

    Roxanne Paltauf is another missing Austin woman. She was only 19 and went missing in 2006 in the summertime wearing flipflops. The UID appears to be slightly older, and one sock was found with the remains, which usually aren't worn with flip-flops. So I wouldn't think this is Roxanne but based on the location, did want to mention her here.

    Kellie Hall has been removed from NamUs and the UID is still listed so apparantly it was not her.

    Are people only removed from namus when they are found or are there other reasons?

    I don't know, but I am watching another case where a UID has been removed from NamUs, most likely identified but is still listed on Doe & the Texas MP/UID site. On that one it may be a timing issue between the agencies as it was very recent.

    Thanks for the info. I have been following Kellie's case closely and am interested to hear any news!

    TX TX - Julie Ann Gonzalez, 21, Austin, 26 March 2010


    Julie Ann Gonzalez's husband was recently charged with her murder but her body has never been found. She was last seen & her vehicle was recovered at the Walgreens at Stassney & 1st in Austin. More information is available in her thread.

    (7 miles from where the UID was found) http://goo.gl/maps/k6BkT

    She is 60-61" and the UID is listed as 65" so maybe not her, but in light of the recent arrest of George De La Cruz, she came to mind on this UID.

    Julie Ann Gonzalez: DNA Sample submitted - Tests complete
    https://www.findthemissing.org/cases/5745/1/

    Estimated postmortem interval on the UID is: Years

    Both the UID & Julie Ann have DNA samples entered so she should probably be an automatic ruleout.

    I'm not certain it ever was there, do you know? I sometimes forget to check the state site. I know they were very slow with updates with Hailey Dunn.
