No rule out list on NAMUS
"Missing persons cases were compared with the unidentified case without success.
It isn't clear what happened to the remains. There is no indication in the Sheriff's Office records and the Coroner's records on the case are missing. The remains and clothing were destroyed on May 10, 1985."'Nothing clears up a case so much as stating it to another person.'

It's sad that these just get ignored. I think these could be a possible identity.

WHAT?!?!? How on EARTH could they just destroy the remains AND the clothing?
"Yes, yes. This is an unsolved case, let's just destroy all evidence that it ever happened and move along."
That woman existed; she lived. She had family and friends and people who are wondering what the Hell happened to her. She was either in high school, just dropped out, or had recently graduated. She died, we don't know how she died but I'm willing to bet good money she didn't just fall over and die of natural causes. I have a good feeling someone knows what happened to her. She had a name and a face and now due to severe police misconduct (And yes, destroying evidence in an OPEN INVESTIGATION is what I would call police misconduct) the people who cared about her will never know what happened. If she was murdered, the person who killed her will never be tried for her death.
Whoever decided to destroy her remains and her clothing; I hope they realize that they basically doomed a human being into being forever unidentified. They doomed someone's family into never knowing what happened to their daughter/sister/niece/possibly mother.

Did they actually save any DNA whatsoever? I really think there would be an inquest into why it was destroyed, as well as any possible parts that could be identified. (I think DNA can be taken from cremation ash, but I don't know how they were destroyed).

Finally had time to go through this list.
Bonita Bickwit was 15 when she went missing in July 1973 with her boyfriend in New York, so if they decided to hit the road together, she could have wound up in Washington. The UID is estimated to have died between 1976 and 1978, when Bonita would have been 18 to 20, in range. Hair style and general style of dress are close.
The big drawback is that she was a tiny person, only 4'11", and is unlikely to have grown to 5'7" like the UID.
A lot more information here: http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/...it_bonita.html
Patricia Chesser. She would have had to grow a lot, but she's young enough it's possible.
Cynthia Gooding http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/...g_cynthia.html
Janet Kramer http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/k/kramer_janet.html
Deborah Meyer had a full set of dentures, so she is a ruleout.
Barbara Monaco. Except that she's believed to have been murdered in Virginia Beach...
Lynne Kathryn Schulze
Angela Rader, probably too small.
Sheryl Tillinghast looks more possible than most.
Wendy Stephenson, almost certainly killed the day she disappeared by a serial killer.
Sarah Tokier. http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/t/tokier_sarah.html. Possible.
Kathy Wilcox. http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/w/wilcox_kathy.html. She was 15 in 1972, which would make her at the high end or above the estimated age range.
Deborah Tomlinson looks promising. http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/...n_deborah.html
http://www.doenetwork.org/cases/58dftx.htmlOpinions expressed are strictly my own (who else would they belong to???)
