    FL - Brooksville, WhtFem UP6043, 30-45, in woods west of I-75, Jul'72

    Hope I am doing this correctly, first one I started.

    This one is from 1972. She was found in Brooksville FL on the side of the road near Hwy 50 and I-75 . This is all that is written about her on the HCSO site; An unidentified white female was found murdered in the eastern area of Hernando County, Florida. She has yet to be identified.

    Mary Margaret Cook-

    https://www.findthemissing.org/en/cases/1670/0/

    http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/c/cook_mary.html

    On the charley site it reads as if she ran away, but the NamUs site it sounds as if she was murdered. But they mention her maybe wrapped in a red blanket. I know there is a long time between a murder and the body being found, but just wanted to compare these two.

    Everything looks so close except the timeframe. If Mary went missing in 1970, her body wouldn't still be decomposing by 1972, would it? All the othe stats match up really nicely, though. I think I'd call it in.

    Katherine Elizabeth Folk-Hine missing from Manatee/Hillsborough line area http://www.doenetwork.org/cases/1131dffl.html

    Edit-
    More info on Katherine's disappearance.

    The quilt makes me think she could have been killed and dumped by a spouse/boyfriend. Because it probably came from her home. Also possibly if it is Katherine it could have come from the fair.

    I looked at Katherine, but the height threw me off, could they be off by 3 inches? IDK

    I can't think of a good reason for the body to be dumped 1 1/2 years later and it just be decomposing, unless it was in a freezer all that time. Would that show up if the body was frozen?

    I looked at the quilt and it is a machine made, store bought quilt. No piecing, just back and front fabric, quilted together.

    Agree on it likely being a spousal murder. Kathaleen wore wigs and a partial dental plate. There are dentals on this Doe, so the plate should make it an easy ruleout (or in, if the Doe had a plate, although that's not mentioned).

    Hard to say, back in the day. It could be an estimate of Katherine's height give or take a couple inches. I say I'm 5'8 but I've been measured at 5'6 and 5'7 sometimes. It's that dang scoliosis.

    The quilt is what really draws me to her and how they think she either was abducted from the fair where the abductor could have killed her in the woods near the fair, bought the quilt to cover her up in the car, and then dumped her up 1-75. Or the husband killed her and took the quilt from the bed because it had blood evidence from the crime.

    The other thing I thought about is Fourth of July. People attend the fair or fireworks at fair grounds and take a BLANKET OR QUILT to sit on. I don't think she is from Out-of-State, only because July is hot and most people visit FL in the winter. So she could be a transplant from somewhere else that moved here, but she probably was local to the area. Any thoughts?

    I have it too, but bad I lost about 7 inches as a kid, but got some back when straighten, but now I am shrinking, LOL again

    So both have potential, I will see if I hear back from Hernando, maybe I can get some additional info on her.

    I definitely believe she was local because of the quilt. I don't feel that a stranger abduction would result in the victim being wrapped in a quilt and driven south to Hernando County to be dumped.
