    The article on this is subscription only, and the available info provides nothing as to vital stats. But there is a very clear postmortem of the victim.

    I called this in, but the detective in charge won't be in the office until Monday.

    While the UID and Elizabeth look remarkable similar I think poor Elizabeth was likely killed by her ex husband/half brother

    I have never heard about this (but when it happened I was only 11 years old) I live about 15 miles from where this accident happened. I hope she will be identified soon.

    I agree that they look similar, but like you I think she was dead long before this accident happened. Her husband/brother seems to have disappeared another woman from Mississippi. Thankfully hes is in jail now and will never see the outside world again.

    Was she a passenger or a pedestrian?

    I think they were saying she was a passenger. But the fact that she was under the truck, as opposed to inside the truck, would suggest that she was a bystander.

    Well, if she was found under the trailer it sounds like she was a very very unlucky pedestrian. However, as she was not local then circumstances favor her being a passenger in the truck, however she ended up under there.

    This is my home turf, never heard of the case before as I was out of town for a number of years, including that time.

    If her possessions were inside of the truck, that would indicate that she was a passenger.

    I don't know that to be the case, though.

    Didn't seem to be possessions outside either, except what was on her body! This is a weird one, could be either way. Maybe they will share more info on this case, as it was clearly an accident and there is no criminal case to compromise.

    That's strange. How did she go from inside to the outside? Could she have jumped out? She looks remarkable for a car accident victim.

    Unbelted people can be ejected from a vehicle and it can end up on top of them. Not to be graphic but it is usually a closed coffin in that case. She does look pretty good for that to have happened.

    Here is an interesting possibility;

    Faith Ann Willis. Missing from Fairmont , WV, August 1985 (not far from Uniontown). Check out the hairline and the eyebrows, and consider that this UID was found under a semi trailer. Faith Ann Willis was only 4'9", but we have no vitals for the UID for comparison and she is not on NamUS.

    Another possibility - pure speculation - is that there might have been cigarette butts inside the truck of the same brand as those found on her body.

    There are a lot of things LE could look at to determine whether she had been inside of the truck.

    No indication of where the truck had come from of where it was going?
    Or does this trucking company just deliver in the local area - not long distance deliveries?
