    While researching a Florida Jane Doe, I was looking at the Charley Project page for Carol Lynn Roberts

    http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/...rts_carol.html

    Since (1) her circumstances point to a strong likelihood that she is somewhere in the Southwestern U.S., rather than Florida, and (2) she is not listed in NamUs, I figured that she might have slipped under the radar for people researching Jane Doe cases in the Southwest.

    While looking at Arizona and New Mexico Jane Does, I came across this one, and was amazed by the resemblance.



    As for the other particulars, her height (5'4") is within the Jane Doe's height estimate. The timeframe (about 15 years) might fit the description of the estimated date of death ("Years Prior").

    And although the Jane Doe is listed as Native American, and Carol probably would be described as Caucasian, her facial characteristics are similar enough to those of a Native American.

    The one negative is that her age (18) is a bit younger than the age range given for the Jane Doe (20-40)

    Teeth don't lie. Shovel Shaped “Indian” Teeth, I think would be a dead give away. It’s easy to determine if you have it or not, and is a good indicator of Native heritage.

    Unless I provide a link, every one of my posts are to be considered rumor, Speculation, or simply MY OWN OPINION.

    We are the watchers. We are witnesses. We see what has gone before. We see what happens now, at this dangerous moment in human history. We see what's going to happen - what will surely happen - unless we come together: we - the Peoples of all Nations - to restore peace and harmony and balance to the Earth, our Mother.
