    I've been working through all of the 1989 UID cases, and I came across this one.

    Melody Wolf appears to be a pretty strong possible.

    The description also indicates that the Jane Doe is missing several teeth (although it is unclear which teeth are missing). The photo of Melody appears to reveal that she might be missing some upper teeth on her left side, and there is some asymmetry to her face that might be suggestive of facial injuries consistent with those of the Jane Doe.

    There would not have been an automated comparison or rule-out by default.
    * Melody has a DNA profile; however, the Jane Doe does not.
    * The Jane Doe has dentals available; however, Melody does not.
    * There are no fingerprints for either Melody or the Jane Doe.
