    Bookman explains in post 1297 what the number means. And C.N.A. means Customer Name and Address. It is what was used before we nebby people had reverse lookup.

    Good Bookman, you found an actual previously unknown fact while others go Mustard.

    I think you're right. She DOES look like that girl. One thing I've been pointing out on another board (and the investigators apparently know this) is that she is most likely MUCH older than her stated age, which is probably why she had so much trouble conceiving. When she died, she was supposedly only 41 years old. But did you see her 'cookbook' photo? Her most recent driver license photo? I think the person in those photos is at least 50 years old. That means she was more likely born around 1963. I was born in 1966 and I had an Easy Bake Oven. I was the right age for that.


    You can see all the documents and photos here:

    Kim Mallon - possible match?

    ....ooh that Kim Mallon looks very close too. Note that there was Psychiatric problems listed there. And that corroborates.

    My first post here!! What a lot of good sleuthing everyone is doing! I tend to agree with the poster a few posts above that asked why her computer couldn't be restored to see if any vital information that could link her real identity is still in the data on the drive.

    I am not sure what the margins of error are here, but I was reading a post yesterday that commented on the initials of her name, and how there was speculation that her name gave a clue to who she is.

    I for one think the Mallon girl, Kim Mallon and Lori Kennedy look a lot alike...She looks like an aged Kim. Getting back to my point, Kim's name is Kim Louise Mallon, according to several sites across the net. Also on the websleuths forum here, on her thread, someone mentions Kim had a sister named Lori. Could this be tied together somehow?

    Perhaps when she escaped the hospital, she had a family friend who helped her stay out of the public eye until she was older and the identity switch plan hatched out?

    As for her age, and looking "older" I feel she just had a mature face even in the younger photos...The weight gain, the stress of living a life that wasn't exactly true, and possible health issues put a lot of strain into her face. It happens with the best of us.

    I am glad to be a part of this community now, and am very impressed by the processing of information!!

    Welcome KLO! Good points on Kim Mallon. There is also a potential tie to the name Mallon in one of the telephone numbers that written on the notes page found in her strong box. We have Kim on the list of names to be submitted. Just waiting for somebody to step up and say they will submit the names.

    Two interesting tidbits... "ours" referenced on the sheet goes back to Miles Gersh law and Mallon Resources (as previously stated).

    I looked into archived news articles regarding both and two cases involving Gersh as a representative caught my eye. #1) Stetson Hills Public Building Authority, and #2) Kemper Securities (M. Munson awarded $1.3M).

    Both are very intriguing possibilities.

    IMHO, K* Mallon really looks like the closest resemblance. And there is the psych connection too.

    11. She escaped from a mental institution and never wanted to go back there (aka K. Mallon/California).....perhaps?

    New here!

    Hi everyone - I'm yet another person inspired to join by the Seattle Times story. I was sucked in and wound up reading the whole thread.

    My own observations:

    - Whoever LEK was before the BST/LEK reinvention, she knew what she was doing when she took on her new identity. I actually owned the Loompanics catalog, which I bought at a bookstore on Haight Street in San Francisco. It could also be found at the Anarchist's Book Fair. Zines, BBS's - they all had "How to disappear" instructions. If LEK didn't hire a broker, she had some way to get hold of this kind of information (which, again, could be as easy as going to the Anarchist Book Fair or walking into a leftie bookstore) and the sophistication to use it effectively. Which leads me to:

    - Her age. Others in the thread have mentioned it, the detective on the case mentioned it, and I agree, that LEK was older than she claimed. She may have just aged poorly and rapidly towards the end of her life, but I have a surmise (I think you call it "mustarding," but forgive me) that she was born around 1963. A very famous Kennedy event - the JFK assassination - occurred then. Also, the name "Lori" with that spelling reached its peak of popularity in 1963 (it was #8). It had lost considerable ground by 1968/9. The website behindthename.com allows you to search names by popularity.

    - Regardless of whether "Lori" was close to her real name, she would have wanted a name that wasn't too unique, I would think. It might have been chosen for its generic-ness, shortness and ease of spelling. For all I know, "Lori Kennedy" might have been made up out of popular first name in peer group + notable event in birth year (and thus easy to remember?)

    - Cuban food. I was reading that and thought that would be an unusual food preference for someone not from New York or Miami. But then I remembered the Versailles chain of Cuban restaurants that opened up in the LA area in the 1980's:

    Versailles Cuban restaurants in California - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Could this be a connection with Los Angeles? LEK liked Cuban food because she ate at the Versailles restaurants? If the "Cuban food" isn't a red herring, then this might be a place she developed a taste for it; Cuban food isn't that popular on the West coast compared to Mexican food or food from Central or South American countries.

    - Her hands and feet. Someone noted way back in the thread that her hands might be the most likely way to track her. You can get plastic surgery on your face and body, you can cut/dye/perm your hair but you can't really do anything about your hands and feet. To judge from the Texas Women in Business pics, LEK had notably large hands and feet. She'd be the kind of person who would have a lot of trouble finding shoes to fit her in the pre-online-shopping era. She'd be complaining to her friends about finding shoes, and probably wouldn't be able to borrow or share shoes with her friends or fellow dancers. In her case, I would want to know if there was a long-missing woman who might have had unusual difficulty finding shoes to fit!
    Hello everyone, I'm new here but I've been stalking this site for about the last 50 pages. Like many of you, this story has fascinated me and she also looks so familiar to me like many of you have said. I was born in 69 and have been a bit of a sleuth myself. I was adopted at birth and was able to find my birth mother when I was about 20.

    My name is also Laurie and I can tell you that growing up there were always other "Laurie/Lori's" in my classes, when I was in Elementary there were 4 of us 3 Lori's and myself, then in high school there were 3 of us, all Laurie's and at my church two other Lori's. All to say, I'm pretty sure the name was still pretty popular during 69 but I do think she looks older than me or maybe I just like to think I look younger :-).

    My personal feeling is she is from this area, I live in the same area she was in and its called the San Fernando Valley. There are many Cubans in this area and lots of Cuban restaurants including Versailles which I remember being very popular in the 80's. I'm pretty sure most of the things she wrote on that paper were written while she was here. The "Library' number 688 was a common prefix for that area, North Hollywood or I believe Burbank. I couldn't find it since the number has most likely since been changed. There are a few things on that page that I believe relate either strongly to this area or to her planning her move/change or both. Also because she kept it in her lockbox it may be important to her in a way that it was all she had left from her past which is another reason I think she's from here, everything else was related to her changed self.

    For a moment I thought she could be Kim Mallon (sp?) buy the lips just don't match.

    The Easy Bake Oven... well I never got one as a kid and it seemed like everyone had one but me. I can't say I consciously wanted one as an adult but I can say we are able to relive some of the things we missed as children through our own children and my daughter had an Easy Bake Oven before she was 2 :-)

    One last thing. I personally think she was very smart and not so mental till the very end when evey thing was out of her control. One thing that came to my mind is she may have had undiagnosed postpartum which made the marriage fall apart. That can go on for a couple of years and can cause great depression in it self not to mention having to go through the divorce and losing her child on Christmas Eve may have been too much for her to handle.

    Thanks for the clarification on the number! So I wonder when Mallon Oil was issued that number. Mallon Oil was formed in 1978 and then merged with Mallon Resouces in 1989. I realize that number probably is not as important as other things on the note but for some reason I keep going back to it.

    ETA: In a further search it seems that Mallon Resources filed Articles of Incorporation on 7/18/1988. So the 303-293-2333 was probably a valid C.N.A sometime between the publishing date of 1984 (or just before that) for the book that Bookman has quoted and July of 1988.

    Kim Mallon - possible match?

    Maybe a weird coincidence but poster Mrskeev posted in previous thread about Mallon Oil and a phone number.

    I keep thinking that our lady looks like the missing Kim Mallon....


    Weird, eh?

    Can someone put up side-by-sides of our lady and Kim Mallon?

    TIA

    Kim Mallon is listed as a missing person that needs to be submitted as a potential match. The connection to the phone number and her name/ and the timing/situation of her disappearance are a very "interesting" coincidence. We really just need somebody to step up and say they will submit the info to the appropriate authorities.

    Edited to add that she has been submitted.

    I have never submitted to "namus" or "charley project" but I would like Kim Mallon submitted.

    Can the Mods help or someone here?

    TIA

    Here is the side by side:


    And I just submitted it as a possible match.
    Eternally optimistic!

    Hoping to find:

    Above is Kim Mallon. She went missing from a California Psychiatric Center decades ago.
    MrsKeev posted a reference found of "Mallon's Oil"...


    I hope this gets submitted to Charley'sProject (I've never done it before so I hope someone here can assist).
