    Glad to see this lady on here. I searched a while ago on Namus and didn't see many viable matches. Here's one suggestion. I can't explain how she got from OK to WA, but I do see similarities in the nose.

    Sure! I have never called in matches (only emailed--not a phone person). Same protocol, right?

    Just heard back from the ME's office on Molly Waddington. Will keep you guys posted.

    I have submitted your inquiry to NamUs for an dental comparison. Thank you for your help and I will keep your up-dated with the findings. Thanks again, Elizabeth

    Heard back from Elizabeth Nelson late last night after she checked the dental records. Back to the drawing board.

    It was confirmed the Unidentified Woman is not Ms. Waddington vis dental records. Thank you for your help. Elizabeth

    Dangit!

    Oh well, a rule out is better than nothing.

    Agreed. Looks like Spokane Jane has some other rule outs in Namus now, too.

    What does everyone think in terms of a scenario? Was she homeless? What was the weather like around the time she went into the water? (She's not wearing layers or a coat.) Did she jump in? Fall?

    My two cents: If she was in the water two weeks and was found January 10, that puts her in right around Christmas. Suicide?

    I've made a little map: https://mapsengine.google.com/map/ed...w.ki0SdhhQmQ_A

    The items marked are Argonne Road in Spokane on one end of the river, and Post Falls,ID on the other end. These are, according to the article, the "ends" at which she could have entered the river. I've also marked the approximate area where the body was located in a different colour.

    Also a thought, the I-90 runs through Post Falls and very close to the Spokane River, could explain why no one recognised her if she's not local and was hitching from somewhere else.
