    That's about an hour's drive away from where Bob went missing.
    We 'embraced' the missing Bob Harrod case as requested but 6 years on, are still waiting for further guidance

    ETA: No, sorry, this refers to the remains found on Jan 20th. What's going on up there though?

    So, according to this report, there's been three homicides in Sunland since 2007. Now they've uncovered two bodies in the space of a couple of months.

    I can't find any info on results for the Jan discovery yet, but it looks a little ominous to me if both these sets of remains are likely homicides.

    Just so I have got things clear, are we looking at one or two Sunland/La Tuna Canyon discoveries?

    June 21st, 2012. Burning body found, La Tuna Canyon Road. Identified as Cesar Verdugo, age 35.
    http://projects.latimes.com/homicide...cesar-verdugo/
    (Family still appealing for info in Feb this year, in comments).
    Also Discussed here
    http://www.thefoothillsforum.com/for...hp?f=1&t=10526

    Which is completely separate from:

    February 24th, 2013. Remains found, La Tuna Canyon Rd, Sunland.
    http://abclocal.go.com/kabc/story?se...les&id=9005652

    Which is completely separate again from:

    January 20th, 2013. Remains found, Angeles Nat Forest, north of Sunland.
    http://www.insidesocal.com/sgvcrime/...th-of-sunland/

    For the latter two, I haven't found updates. Interestingly though, in the foohills Forum linked under the identified man, someone is saying a transient veteran they know is missing under suspicious circumstances, and asking what to do. I hope they did manage to contact the coroner about the vet, as he could be one of the above. There might be problems tracking down exactly who he is though, as the poster sounds as though they had a passing acquaintance only.

    Didn't AH formerly reside in Glendora?

    Here's the NamUs UP casefile for this case:

    https://identifyus.org/en/cases/11280

    It indicates that it was a White or Hispanic Female, 26-40 years old. The indicated height and weight measurements are probably postmortem, and are obviously too low for a living adult female.

    It also indicates that a single breast implant was found with the remains.

    When I first read about her, I thought that she might be Jeanette Gomez Espeleta because of the implants, but everything else is off. I guess there are a lot of women who have them/it is not as unusual as I originally assumed.

    Interesting. Re: Jeanette Gomez Espeleta, her profile states that her implants have serial numbers. That should make it an easy rule in/rule out.

    Similarly, I wonder if the police have checked the implant with THIS decedent to see if it has a serial number.

    Also about Jeanette, she was 8 months pregnant at the time of her death, so unless fetal bones were also found, it seems unlikely (but not impossible) that this is a match. Also, it sounds like investigators think she was killed and then put onto a boat. I assume they mean that then she was dumped in the ocean?

    A sketch has now been released...



    http://montrose.patch.com/groups/pol...tuna-canyon-rd

    Officials Trying to ID Remains of Woman Found near La Tuna Canyon Rd.

    Coroner's investigators determine that she was white or Hispanic and between 25-40 years old.

    County officials sought the public's help Tuesday in identifying a woman whose bones were found near La Tuna Canyon Road in Sunland just off the 210 Freeway.....

    I think this is Megan DiPiazza missing since Nov 11, 2012. The description matches and the sketch bears a strong resemblance to her.

    IMHO Megan has a wider mouth and her nose looks off, but I see what you mean. Very similar.

    I agree, Megan's nose seems more narrow. Her mouth width I was contributing the fact that most (all?) of the pictures I have seen are of her smiling. When I do an overlay of a photo of Megan over the sketch it's pretty darn close.

    I know the area very well and the location where the unidentified woman was found (La Tuna Cyn) is very close to Sunland where Megan was last seen. The proper authorities are working on this, seeing if this is a match. Either way, I hope this woman's identity is returned and she can be laid to rest.
