    Not sure how likely this is as she disappeared in Sept. of 1979 from Texas, but she does seem to fit a majority of the description for the UID.

    Pinkie Mae Davis-Herron
    was 23 at the time she went missing, has a gap between her front two teeth and seems to have curly/kinky black hair that is medium length. She was 5' 3" feet tall

    I found this Doe on Doe Network and it looks like she has a reconstruction but I don't see any post mortem photos...

    Nose definitely looks different to me. Pinkies nose turns downward while the reconstruction looks like she has an upturned nose. I wish there was a post mortem photo to actually compare...

    I never base anything on the nose bc its usually just whatever the person doing the reconstruction thinks is right, esp if the remains found are skeletal.

    Yep, that's kind of what I thought too, Kymistry.

    Unless the blunt force trauma includes damage to the face. In that case the features could be significantly distorted. My first reaction was that Pinkie looked nothing like her, especially through the forehead, but her face is turned to 3/4 view while the reconstructions are face-on so it's hard to tell whether the unidentified woman's forehead slopes back. Also, Pinkie has her hair puffed up at the point of her head, which exaggerates the apparent slope of her forehead.

    They didn't specify whether the bruises on this girl's body were recent or older. If some were newer and some were older, that could suggest a history of abuse in this woman's life.
