    OR - Columbia Co., Female UP9006, 17-25, Afro-style wig, Feb'70

    Female found out in Columbia county.

    17-25 years old and estimated at 5'5

    Partially skeletonized remains located in Columbia County, Oregon. Because the case is so old, a proper file has not been located at this time.


    According to the Namus profile she was out there for about a year.





    LUCKILY AND THANK GOODNESS, apparently even though they can't find her proper file, her full DNA is in CODIS, unfortunately, many missing women from back then don't have their DNA on file.

    Timing isn't right unless one report or the other is inaccurate.

    Roxanne would have been 11 when this Jane Doe was found.


    I don't know how I feel about the black wig, for all we know she could have never seen that before in her life and it just so happened to be near where her body was found. Or she could have been wearing it because she had a false identify and was hiding from someone, or something as simple as she met her fate after a Halloween party where she was wearing the wig as part of some costume.

    Great minds think alike! When I saw Roxanne Sims' Charley Project profile I ran over here to see if she could be a match for this UID and saw that you had already suggested her. I wonder if something could be wrong on one of the reports? The wig, height of victim, and the state of Oregon all match. Or maybe this UID and Roxanne were both taken by the same person at different times? The wig could have not been related to this UID. For instance, someone takes Roxanne and dumps her remains in the general area where this UID was found, then later abducts this UID and places her in the same area. I wonder if the wig looked like it had been out in the weather longer than the remains. I also wonder how large of an area might have been searched by LE. If this was done by someone who killed more than once he may have used the area multiple times.

    I was wondering if the year of disappearance was a guess. Because of this " Sims has been missing from the Portland area since approximately 1977." If the date last seen alive was actually the date she was reported missing. It does seem very odd to have an afro wig involved in two cases that are really quite close in proximity.

    ETA - Roxanne's birthday does seem to be November 1958. So the only way this could be her is if the date of finding the UID is wrong. If it was faded hand written records a 6 could be mistaken for a 0. But that's quite a stretch. This is most likely a strange coincidence.

    Well the proper file for her is missing, so all we have is the word of NamUs.

    Interesting factoid, the file was probably in St. Helens (The county seat of Columbia county), St. Helens is somewhat famous for being extremely flammable (The city has been burnt to the ground at least twice since it's been formed). If they have her DNA in CODIS but not their case file I'm willing to bet they know where her body is. The unfortunate thing is that I'd highly doubt they'd preform a second (Or third) autopsy to confirm the approximate date of death or maybe even where she was from.

    She was just added to DoeNetwork: http://www.doenetwork.org/cases/1270ufor.html

    Some PMs:

    http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/f/flink_laura.html
    Age (21) is within range, height (5'2) is within an inch of the height range, timing fits very well (1-year PM range, Flink disappeared two years to the day the UID was found), distance is just 122 miles, circumstances fit

    http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/w/winter_verla.html
    Age (28) is three years from range, height (5'4 - 5'5) is within range, timing (1 year + 4 months) works, distance is only 166 miles, circumstances fit
