Maybe we should just start submitting potential matches at random.I can't complain but sometimes I still do. Life's been good to me so far. - Joe Walsh

Oh yes. I am trying to be patient, but it seems clear that there was a set of fingerprints taken from Jane Doe which should have triggered a match in AFIS.
And there is that pesky "white" classification.....
It is a good lesson. Never, ever assume that the race classification is completely reliable.

To be honest, looking at Ms. Toni's picture, I wouldn't be able to guess what race she was. BUT according to her family she had hair that was very distinctly of an African American texture. That should have been a HUGE clue.Unless I've provided a link, most of what I say is my own opinion. Sometimes, I'm thinking out loud and may explore avenues I don't necessarily think are true, but I'm always aware I could be wrong, so I check other stuff out.

This is bad. There are a lot of UID's in MD. I am not sure how to approach the rest of them. I could be wrong, but it seems like it was a rush job.

Looking at that reconstruction you could not tell me that she was white. That reconstruction looks 100% African American.

We have some folks on the Toni Barrett thread beating themselves up about missing her as a possible match. Myself included. Passed her right by because of the white designation. Absolutely everything else matched up including the clothing description.
Curious thing about the motel-if you take a look at Google Maps, it isnt clear at all that she was associated with the location of the El Rich. jmo.

I'm not familiar with Toni's case; does someone know if she was biracial (African and Caucasian)? If she was, the racial misclassification seems understandable.

Ms. Toni deserved more respect than this.Unless I've provided a link, most of what I say is my own opinion. Sometimes, I'm thinking out loud and may explore avenues I don't necessarily think are true, but I'm always aware I could be wrong, so I check other stuff out.

I think you are right necco-but Toni's case was hampered out of the gate by all of the push back between jurisdictions. And the story is a common one for people on the fringe who go missing. It is easy to get resources for the beauty queens-not so much women like Toni and Jane Doe.
