    I wonder if this photo was circulated among dentists in Mississippi and Louisiana? Maybe one of them would recognize her if they did her work. Also, if a copy of everything she had done accompanied the photo, that would be a big help in getting her recognized by dentists.

    Is there anyone that does work like this? Would the ADA be willing, do you think, to help out in instances like this, where there is extensive work and a reconstruction?

    Still open...

    It has been five years since I first posted this case. Unfortunately, she is still unidentified and the case is still open and unsolved.

    I see her image but can they describe the hair color? I can't tell if that is dirty blond, brown or what.

    I was looking at NAMUS and unfortunately under dental information most say on file or not available without describing any dental work done.

    I have several questions regarding this case. First off, do they know for sure she was a transient? Did they report any drugs found in her system? Just because she was found in an area frequented by addicts and transients doesn't necessarily mean she IS/WAS a transient/addict. Unless they have some proof that she was....which I only have read about the assumption that she was.

    Any reason she is called "Rosa Doe"? Is she of Hispanic decent...or am I missing something. (an assumption I make when I hear the name Rosa)

    Rule-outs from Namus

    Brenda Snouffer 1962 Florida
    Gwendolyn Suchy 1954 Texas

    Some resemblances from the UID drawing...

    the Doe Network page says she had been seen at truck stops in Louisiana so we can all draw our own conclusions from that.

    Thanks! Always a good idea to re-read the info

    I guess it depends on what she was "seen" doing while at the truck stops then. Fair enough...

    That, sadly, makes me worry that maybe they didn't try all that hard to find out who she is. Middle-aged prostitute with a drug problem, happens all the time, too bad but here comes the next case...
    Opinions expressed are strictly my own (who else would they belong to???)

    I found the whole report to be shockingly cruel honestly; which is why I suppose how I missed the part about her being seen at truckstops. I was shocked by the numerous mentions to transients and addicts...not necessarily in regards to where she was found, but regarding who she was.

    If she had been seen at more than one truck stop in the area, she could have been a local, too. I know of quite a number of women in my area who go to the truck stops to pick up some cash when the rent is due, or to trade sex for drugs.

    This is local to me, so I can answer this one. I've worked at the NASA site for years now, and when Rosa was found, I worked at the local newspaper (though I was not the reporter on this story).

    When NASA Stennis Space Center was constructed in the early 1960s, several small towns were located within the area that would become known as the "buffer zone" (the area around the site where no habitation is allowed). The towns are all gone now, but they still use the names of them to refer to some areas.

    Rosa Doe was found in an area that was once the town of Santa Rosa, hence her name. No hispanic heritage that I'm aware of.
