    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    "When from a long distant past nothing persists, after the people are dead, after things are broken and scattered, still alone, more persistent, more faithful, the smell and taste of things remain poised a long, long time like souls, ready to remind us, waiting, hoping for their moment amid the ruins of all the rest, and bear unfaltering in the tiny and almost impalpable drop of their essence the vast structure of recollection."

    Thought I'd put this up before it's gone. These are some of the details from her Charley page.

    Last seen in Phoenix AZ 11/2/1986
    She lived with ex-husband in wrecking yard on 51st Ave.
    Worked at J's Coffee Shop on Central Ave.
    Ex-husband claims to have dropped her off at [U]Greyhound station on Washington St.

    Here is a more detailed story:

    Her remains were found a 1-yrs later in a "wilderness" (desert) area in Pinal County (AZ).

    Here is Doe link while it is still available:

    "skeletal remains were found in the desert in the vicinity of South Lamb Road and West Hauser Road in Arizona City, Arizona, on April 18, 1988"

    I wish I knew how to save this stuff before it is taken away (i.e. deleted from MP/UID sites after resolution).

    Could anyone that knows how to do that add it to this thread?
    After they've been "resolved," no one knows any characteristics of their fate (as far as missing/UID cases).

    Whether a real resolution or not.... Someone should be privy to old info, whether accurate or not.

    May Julie Rest in Peace and may the person responsible be brought to justice.

    Julie is said to have long hair at the time of her disappearance but the UID only had four-inches of hair. I'm not sure how significant this is, but some possible explanations:

    She cut her hair after moving to Arizona and her family was unaware of this when they described her for the MP report.
    She cut her hair after her disappearance.
    The person responsible for her disappearance cut her hair for some reason.
