    A surveyor was walking by the creek in 2002 when he stumbled on the skull. As investigators searched, they recovered a whole box of bones, clothes, even parts of the woman's weave.
    ...
    They also found some clothing with a tag that could be linked to clothes like scrubs, worn by medical personnel.

    I don't think it could possibly be Gillum. Her "circumstances" section says, "**Partial remains belonging to Niani were found northeast of Fountain Hills, AZ in 2005**".
    Opinions expressed are strictly my own (who else would they belong to???)

    Someone to look into:
    Ashley Tyronda Norah https://www.findthemissing.org/en/cases/9345/20/

    Persuasive factors:
    1) She went missing at 17, falling in the age range on NamUs.
    2) She was 61 inches tall as compared to our Doe, but that number may have been on school records, a learner's permit, and she had grown since then.
    3) She matches all of the basic identifiers, having black/brown hair, having a weave in her photos, and being African-American.

    If Ashley had died immediately, it would be too long of a time frame, but considering there are no details on the finer points of her disappearance, it might be worth a look. She had to get to Tennessee if nothing else, and we've all heard stories of runaways, with friends, lovers, or alone, who then meet foul play.

    Does anyone think it's compelling? I'm just getting started and trying to go off of data as I'm really just terrible at visually comparing people.

    Ashley's CP page indicates she had braces when she went missing.


    Fairlyn Jordan? missing since May 2001 from NOLA

    She fits physical parameters. Her circumstances don't really jump out at me. I wish there was a better picture of her, not sure about her mouth, jaw.

    watergirl62, thanks for pointing that out. I have heard of people removing them without medical help, but it seems there wouldn't be any sign of that on the skull

    Fairlyn looks visually similar.

    I had to google... wow, there are many youtube videos about how to take your own braces off. I learn so much here.

    Could this be Cleashindra Denise Hall


    http://www.doenetwork.org/cases/1056dfar.html



    Things that make me think she might be a match

    They look alike

    The age and time frame match

    They both have a chipped front tooth



    Things that makes her not a match


    Cleashindra Is four inches shorter than the UID

    She has a scar on her right knee

    She has pierced ears

    Scars and pierced ears are irrelevant with skeletal remains; there's no way to tell what the unidentified woman had.

    Should I go ahead and submit her??

    This is where I get hung up: I think Cleashindra has some pretty nice teeth. Our UID has extremely protruding front teeth (almost horizontal). That is pretty distinctive, IMO.

    Is there anyway that this description is not a reflection of her natural adult teeth? If I had teeth like our UID, I might be self-conscious and not smile as readily as other people? I don't know... I have stared at many teeth looking for her, and excluded several missing persons on this criteria.

    I am pretty new to the unidentified forum. Please correct me if I am misreading this.
