    It sounds like she could be Mary Rodermund, a victim of serial killer Robert Hohenberger. She was added to Charley today. There isn't much information about the UID, but Mary fits in okay with what's available.

    Age (16) is within 2 years
    Race (Caucasian) matches
    Disappeared in March 1978 (postmortem interval is 1978 - 1979)
    Morgan City is only 97 miles from Jefferson Parish

    She's not in NamUs, so no comparisons could be made.

    Did you call Mary Rodermund in as a possible to the Jefferson Parish coroner?

    Sure wish we knew where in Jefferson Parish the remains were found. Jefferson Parish is vast.

    Jefferson Parish is huge-it is divided by the Mississippi River into what locals call 'East Bank" (Metairie, Kenner side if you are looking at a map) and "West Bank" ( Harvey, Terrytown, Westwego side ). Algiers is West Bank, but is Orleans Parish. For whatever reason, I could not find this UID listed on the Louisiana "Faces" site run by LSU for UIDs, although they list 120 UIDs found in the state.

    Link: http://identifyla.lsu.edu/la_unidentified.php?p=12

    There are about 15 cases that look like they might be in progress as far as information goes-but those are mainly from Bossier Parish. I clicked on one and the only information listed for the UID was "over 16".

    Exactly! The parish spans from the Gulf of Mexico north to Lake Pontchartrain. In addition to the east/west bank division, areas of the parish are referred to as Upper and Lower Jefferson. I live in New Orleans, so this is somewhat local to me. Also, I knew a woman who went missing in the spring or summer of 1979 in Jefferson Parish. Her body was recovered on the West Bank, just across the river from New Orleans, but her murder never solved. So that makes me a little more curious about this Jane Doe.

    Weird that this woman isn't on the LSU FACES website - LSU FACES is the contact listed, AND NamUS lists an LSU number - 08-29-11. But this number doesn't correspond with anything.
