    GA - Harris Co., BlkFem Skeletal UP5818, 35-59, off I-185, May 2009

    I don't have any MP suggestions yet for this UID -- hope someone will -- but I wanted to post her here and ask a few questions this UID brought up for me at the same time.

    There actually seem to be two listings on the Georgia Bureau of Investigation web site for her -- I think it's probably just a glitch -- but linking them both. There are some small differences in the info, such as a few days difference in the date the remains were found. The reconstruction pictured is the same and the main info matches pretty well. The first link is the more complete info:

    https://gbi.georgia.gov/case/unidentified-remains-325

    https://gbi.georgia.gov/case/unidentified-remains-326

    I don't see the UID in NAMUS. * In the info at the link (the longer one), it is mentioned that DNA was used to rule out a missing woman from Talbot County (GA) for this UID. My questions: Because of the mention of DNA being used, should I assume the UID's DNA is in CODIS? Or do some states maintain their own "banks" and not input to CODIS? Also, is it common for a state agency like the GBI not to put UIDs on NAMUS?

    *ETA: I found her in NAMUS. See my third post. Sorry...

    Also -- not to make this thread too confusing, but because this really jumped out at me -- the subject of this thread was found in 2009 in Harris County, very near the Troup County line. There is ANOTHER black female UID -- who IS in NAMUS -- found IN Troup County (GA) two years earlier, in 2007. (That UID was dismembered and partial remains were found in trash bags along a road; someone had tried to burn them.) The NAMUS link for that UID (NOT the subject of this thread, remember) is: https://identifyus.org/en/cases/11123 and DOE Network is http://www.doenetwork.org/cases/841ufga.html

    Sheesh, folks -- I'm so sorry! The subject of the thread IS in NAMUS. I tried a different search method and found her:

    https://identifyus.org/en/cases/5818

    Don't know what went wrong the first five times I tried, LOL.

    Anyhow -- here she is. Let's find who she is.
