    Skeletonized remains of a Caucasian female were found in Brooklyn, New York on March 29, 1993.

    I wonder if the label on the shoes was damaged and it may have been the european size? 40 would be a US size 8.5 which would make much more sense. I'm 5'2" and a size 6.5. Even for my height my feet are tiny. I think I'd fall over if I was a size 5.5 and this girl was much taller than me.

    Haha, I'm 5'2" and wear a size 5.5 shoe. But the size 4 stood out to me, too. That is TINY, especially for someone approximately 5'6".

    I'm 5'7 and a UK size 5. Sometimes a 4, or even a 3, depending on the brand. My male cousin is 5'10 and a size 5! Small feet run in the family, but it's not noticeable at all visually. It's not that unusual

    Here is a sculpted facial reconstruction of this Jane Doe, created by an art student at the New York Academy of Art.

    I know that Dawn Miller has DNA in the system, as does this Jane Doe. But she sure looks like a pretty solid possible. Her unusual facial shape is very similar.

    And the comparisons are pretty solid too.

    I submitted Dawn Miller as a possible for this Jane Doe. Sent by email to Lori Bruski, Amy Dobbs, Ben Figura, and Kenneth Mains (Lycoming County DAOffice).

    Just a quick note that this LIRR stop is surrounded by auto body shops and halal meat markets. It is not particularly residential and was a predominantly black neighborhood in 1993. It seems unlikely that she was a nearby resident - she could have been passing through from Long Island (and got off the train for some reason), or was dumped there. Its certainly possible she was a local from elsewhere in Brooklyn, but I have a strong feeling she wasn't a resident of that immediate area.

    How many missing people of that age were reported from New York in 1992
