    Does anyone see a resemblance to Fonda Lockridge? I'm not particularly good with post-mortem photographs and it is hard to compare as Ms. Lockridge's photograph is a side shot of the right side of her face while the UID's two photographs are lying down on the exam table, although one is a side shot from the left side. Also, the UID's face seems a bit swollen as if she were battered?

    Also, DNA, dentals, and fingerprints are available for both the UID and Ms. Lockridge so wouldn't she likely have been ruled out by now? Dentals and fingerprint charting are apparently available in NamUs for both so I am wondering if comparisons would have been done automatically given basic parameters are met (example: gender, race, height, weight, date found is after date last seen)? Sorry, still have newbie questions!

    NamUs MP # 14802



    Case Information
    Full Name: Fonda Lockridge
    Date last seen: June 15, 1995

    Vital Statistics:
    Age last seen: 26 years old
    Age now: 44 years old
    Race: Black/African American
    Sex: Female
    Height (inches): 64.0
    Weight (pounds): 110.0
    Hair: Brown
    Eyes: Brown
    "No known distinctive body features"

    Clothing:
    "Clothing and accessories are unknown"

    Circumstances:
    Missing since 1995 with Grand Rapids, Michigan listed as a location with no other details.

    Identifiers:
    Fingerprints: Fingerprint information is available and entered
    Dentals: Dental information / charting is available and entered
    DNA: Sample submitted - Tests complete

    Comments:
    A Fonda Lockridge is listed as deceased on an "In Memory" page on the Ottawa Hills High School Class of 1986 site (link here). Unsure if this is the same person since Ms. Lockridge is still listed as missing, but in 1986, she would have been 17 which fits her being in high school. Ottawa Hills High School is in Grand Rapids, MI per the class site emblem and Ms. Lockridge is listed as missing from there.

    What would make her profile interesting is if there is a resemblance to the UID, helped by:

    • Her age in 1998 fits into the UID's range (28-29 vs. 19-39 years old).
    • She is listed as 110 lbs. while the UID is measured at 104 lbs. She is listed as 5 ft. 4 in. while the UID is 5 ft. 3 in.

    However, opinions might be that she does not resemble the UID plus:

    • Disappearance date of almost exactly three years prior to the UID being located (June 15, 1995 vs. May 17, 1998).
    • Ohio borders Michigan, but it is still over 300 miles away. Google Maps: http://goo.gl/maps/tsm6p

    She does look quite similar. I'm not sure I'd say that this is the same person, but I can't see anything that looks conclusively different.

    I wish there was a more direct view of her right ear. The ears look somewhat different, but the difference might just be based on the difference in viewing angle.

    How about this woman? She sure looks like the Jane Doe.

    And the vital stats (except weight) are all pretty much in line.

    Jacqueline's casefile is now restricted. I wonder if I should read anything into that.

    Jacqueline Rowe has ben matched to an old UID case, but not this one.

    http://www.wkbn.com/news/local/remai...after-17-years

    The Mahoning County Coroner's office has finally been able to identify the remains of Jacqueline Rowe of Youngstown, who was last seen in July of 1996. Her badly decomposed body was found the day after Christmas that year in a garage beside a vacant house on the city's North Side.
    I was sure she was going to be a match to this UID (UP 4747), but she was matched to NamUs UP 4755.

    I think that Michelle C. Eason looks like this Jane Doe. She disappeared in September 1997. She was 26, 5 feet 2 inches tall and 115 pounds. This Jane Doe had drugs in her system and the doe network says that Eason used drugs at the time of her disappearance.

    Here is her Doe Network Page:

    Side by side. This looks like a very good possibility. The resemblance is pretty close; the skin color difference could be the lighting. Poughkeepsie is about 10 hours from Columbus, but it's a straight shot via I-84 to any of several major interstates.

    How sad this case is. Here are some possible matches, I tried to take the height, weight, complexion (her skin looks lighter but I'm not sure if that's due to the photos being post-mortem) and distinguishing marks such as scars into account.
