    I keep going back to the two different styles of handwriting on the page of notes. Maybe the majority of the writing was done by someone else that was significant in her life before changing her identity and she held onto it for sentimental reasons (or otherwise). Because the "these eyes" is in the same writing as the signature on the Becky Sue driver's license I believe that may be the only the SHE actually wrote on the paper.

    Another possibility is that someone else wrote all of the notes (except "these eyes") and she was doing some sleuthing of her own trying to find something significant.

    I have been trying to put some of the information together. Here is what I have for addresses and locations. (See my posts from yesterday for a timeline and random facts.)

    Hi AK-

    In 1986, the Immigration Reform and Control Act was passed. Among other provisions, it required that all employers fill out an I-9 form for each employee. The I-9 form requires the employee to attest and show proof that they are authorized to work in the USA.

    Long story short, IF the club where LEK[1] worked actually followed the law and filled out an I-9 for her, all she needed to provide was either 1 document proving both identity and employment authorization (most commonly people present a US Passport) or 2 documents proving such (most commonly people present a driver's license and a Social Security card).



    [1]: I'm not going to refer to her as FLEK anymore. Once she changed her name in TX, she legally was LEK. If anything, she was FBST (Fake Becky Sue Turner).

    I agree. As I mentioned before, the handwriting for "these eyes" matches her signature on the Becky Sue Turner driver's license. Her signature on the more recent license seems completely different which can happen naturally over time or she could have been purposefully disguising her handwriting.

    I wonder if the significant reason for holding on to that paper was what she wrote, what the other person wrote, the last remaining piece of something she was leaving behind (her mother's handwriting, etc.) Blahhhh.... I don't know.

    I am thrilled that so much attention is being focused on this case. There are so many great minds on here!

    Just curious if she lived there alone, with someone, pre name change, or even at all!
    I totally missed this until I re-read the thread... did you have a paid membership to Spokeo or are you thinking B*** T*** in her 40's is Becky Sue as the last resident?? I was going to pay to join Spokeo, just to see what is out there, unless you have a membership?

    Photos in a timeline

    *I edited out information I felt might not be wanted.
    i hope to god I didn't blow the margins. Normally I don't. These images are large though. I tried my best to put them in order. I know I'm missing a few.

    Notice her height.
    Notice her wrists and also the slant in posture to one side
    Notice her hand size and possible wing span (also large feet)
    I'm thinking she had scoliosis and usually marfan goes hand in hand with that. But of course that's just my opinion and I'm not a Dr.
    I left her signature because I think it's important. Her handstyles changed often. Her B in becky is totally different than in the other id that uses a B

    her nose has a deviated septum it appears.

    Restrictions A on a license in Texas means:
    "Texas restriction codes are as follows:

    A With corrective lenses

    Our "doe" LEK had vision issues - she would have at one point worn glasses. Marfan also is connected with vision issues.

    This is so amazing! I think it's great that the Seattle Times published this too, since it really has boosted the visibility of the story and on WS as well.

    I am only on page 40 here, so I don't know if anyone has mentioned it...but there is a huge fair called the Puyallup Fair that happens every year in (of course) Puyallup. Currently, they have 2 a year....one in the spring (April) and another in the late summer/early fall (September). I don't know whether it's always happened twice a year.

    I just wanted to mention that it's something that could have brought her to the Puyallup area - where Becky Sue's gravesite is located - for even a brief period of time. That is of course assuming that she is the one who pulled all of the info together to get her fake id and didn't have someone else helping her.

    Yep. The Puyallup fair is a HUGE deal here in this portion of the state (I live out on the coast) and brings in a lot of big names too. If she was scouring cemeteries, looking for an identity or something she might have found Becky's this way.

If she used a broker, then none of the names/identities/fake references would have had any connection to the LEK- they would have been supplied by the broker. If so, then I imagine the names Lori Erica would have had no connection to her old life. Her "new" date of birth coincides with the death of a Kennedy- maybe a broker with a weird sense of humour? I think if there is any clue in LEK's new life, it maybe in the name of her child. I wonder what her little girls name is? Or what name they would have given her if the baby had been a boy? Pregnancy may well have made her sentimental, remember the past. If any of my speculation is correct, she must have had money. So many possibilities. I am wondering whether she was involved in some sort of criminal conspiracy, and had the backing of a group to reinvent after some crime was committed? If to be found out would mean her going to prison, that would be pretty good insentive to stay hidden.
    I think that is possible too. It really was a very well organized id change, actually 2 id changes between the Becky one and Lori, at least that we know of. The other thing, to me, is that the name Lori Erica seems so random. It is just not a naturally flowing first and middle name, but maybe that is just my perception. Just saying it seems kind of like a random pulling together of a name and, of course, the last name Kennedy is fairly common.

    Regarding her daughter, I'm sure we can't post it since she's minor....but I just wanted to point out that her daughter's first and middle names are listed in LEK's obituary.

    Another important thing I was once told.....if you're going to change your name & identity, keep your new first name the same as your old one because when you go to write it, you may automatically recall your real first name and begin to write the first letter (or say the first syllable).

    Keeping the "L" in the new name is a clever move.

    moo
    Yep, I see it too and it's definitely an interesting theory. Lisa has a thread here on WS: CA CA - Lisa Dickinson, 9, Walnut Creek, 5 Sept 1976 - Websleuths Crime Sleuthing Community
    I thought it was very interesting that the suspect in that disappearance was incarcerated in 1987, since isn't that when LEK became more visible starting with the Becky id, etc?

    I just signed up, and am likely not responding in the correct way, but I wanted to make a couple of comments:

    The number associated with "These Eyes" googles to Visages production company, as some one earlier pointed out. This link shows 9 productions in 1994. http://notc.com/Content/Spotlights/1...Prod-10-94.pdf

    imdb.com lists the show "Avant-Age" produced by Visages, released in 1988. Here's the imdv bio of the "host" of the show, also listed elsewhere as CEO of Visages.

    Link: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0291589/

    I was struck by this: "After high school, she attended DeVry University in Dallas, Texas. Worked as a Freelance Model at the Dallas Apparel Mart while obtaining Bachelors in Electronics Engineering."

    DeVry, Dallas, model, engineering.

    Probably co-incidental, but wondered if Becky/Lori might have known, auditioned for, worked on a video produced by that company in the 80's?

    Do we know WHEN she assumed the Becky Sue name? Was it roughly right out of high school? That seems strange to me. I can't imagine at 17-18 having the need for an assumed identity, never mind the means and know how to execute it. Someone must have helped her?

    Or did she use that name for part of her childhood as well? In which case, I would think it not HER that initiated it.

    In either case, why the name change later? Seems pretty nervy to go in front of a judge and risk being uncovered unless there's a pretty compelling reason to do so. Unless she didn't know it was an assumed identity in the first place, which seems highly unlikely. In that case, why change? I don't know of many people who just randomly decide to have their name legally changed. It's a bit of a hassle.
    I can't complain but sometimes I still do. Life's been good to me so far. - Joe Walsh

    I think she changed her name later to avoid ever being tracked down because of the Becky Sue name. And most name change petitions are pretty routine, unlikely to be questioned unless she had a criminal record, which Becky Sue clearly couldn't have.
