    Canada - Eramosa Twp, Ont, WhtFem 550UFON, 25-45, off Hwy 7, Aug'05

    Coroners have yet to identify a woman whose body was found near Rockwood outside of Guelph, Ont. on Sunday.

    A decomposed body was found in a wooded picnic area near Rockwood along Highway 7 by someone taking a walk.

    The body is that of a white woman between 25 and 45, about five-foot-six and about 130 pounds.

    The woman had a partial upper dental plate and she suffered a fractured left cheekbone sometime before her death

    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    Unless I'm reading this wrong, the unidentified woman was found in 2005 and had been dead about 2-6 weeks before being discovered.

    The woman from Vancouver was last seen in 1989 and reported missing in 1998.

    The missing Vancouver woman had laceration scars on her wrists (suicide attempt?), but there is no mention of such scars on the unidentified woman.

    While it's always possible this is a match, I'd have to say in my opinion it's doubtful. Does anyone else have an opinion??

    I doubt this is a match because the dates don't match. The victim was found 8/28/05 and the time of death was estimated to be 2 to 6 weeks prior to her discovery. The missing, Elaine, was last seen in 1989 and finally reported missing in 1998. The dates just don't work. It is too bad; though, I so want to match these missing souls to their families and bodies that have been found.

    i too doubt this is a match -- there have been many, many women (most involved in the sex industry) that have disappeared from British Columbia in recent history. while i'm not too familiar with the cases, i have heard that its suspected there's a serial killer involved. so it seems doubtful that this one woman's body would turn up 15 years later on the other side of the country.

    This case has always bothered me. I have searched high and low for a possible match. The closest that i could come was this one.

    The JD was located about 10 monthes later and Darlene Ann Wallace was from the USA, however the height and weight were pretty much the same. She did have a previously broken nose and ribs, but no mention of a partial dental plate. I do think there is a bit of resemblance. I submitted it to the "OPP Resolve Iniative" a few months ago, but never heard back, so I assume it wasn't a match.

    PLEASE, PLEASE do not give up. You are very much like the rest of us - we all hope to match up at least one "unidentified" with one "missing"!. The fact that you have tried to match these two up tells me you feel like I do - I wish I could match them all up!!

    Yes, I know what you mean. I spend way more time doing this than I probably should, its very addictive. It blows my mind that there are so many unidentified individuals out there and countless families wondering where their loved ones are.

    I actually did help match a JD with a missing person last summer when the "OPP Resolve Intiative" was first launched. The young man had been unidentified since 2003. When I look back on it, I wonder how it could go that long without being solved by law enforcement. That was just before my websleuths days.

    For anyone who is interested there are so many unidentified people in Ontario. I am sure many of you have visited it before but here is a link to the "OPP Resolve Initiative" website.

    I saw a resemblence between the two women's brows, lips, overall face shape, especially the jaw line. Although the missing woman was not seen since '89, not reported missing until '98, she may have been alive in 2005. If she was not even reported as missing until 9 years after she was last seen, implies she was not close to her family, or had none or that she lived a very transient life. Working in the sex trade it is quite possible she could end up on another side of the country. Elaine's age fit's in the UID's age range and also for height. The UID's body was found in August after being exposed for up to 6 weeks, maybe small scars were not visible from decomposition. There is facial bone damage, that sounds similar to Elaine. Eye socket damage could also be written as cheek if the injury is at the bottom of socket. Were Elaine alive after 1998, the missing teeth could have happened later. I think a match could easily be determined by comparing xrays of the bone injuries if any are available. I think this might be a posssible match worth alerting the authorities to check out.

    I agree that there are some superficial similarities, but I wouldn't say it was a close enough match to notify LE. However, if others disagree, then maybe you should bring it to someone's attention. If even one other person sees a similarity, then you might really have something.

    Good luck, and keep us posted with what you find out!

    Canada - Rockwood ON - Female 550UFON, 25-45, Aug 2005

    Rockwood Unidentified FemaleSeeking the Publicís Help to Identify a Young Female Victim On Sunday August 28, 2005, the body of an unidentified person was found at the end of a footpath in a wooded area at a rest stop on Highway 7, west of the Town of Rockwood, Ontario. It is believed the body had been there for approximately one month.The victim is described as an adult white female between the ages of 25-45 years with medium brown hair. She was approximately 5 foot 4 inches to 5 foot 6 inches tall, weighing approximately 130 pounds, with an average build. She had a partial upper dental plate consisting of two teeth, the left incisor and the canine. She had some old facial trauma including a broken nose and left eye socket. As a result of the facial trauma, it is probable that this female had facial deformities. The dental plate may have been associated to the facial trauma. She also had a fracture of the 7th rib of the front rib cage. http://www.opp.ca/Investigative/Unid...pp_002058.html

    The partial upper dental plate should be a great clue as to her identity. I'm not sure how common it is; coupled with the old facial trauma. Maybe she had been in a car accident..?

    Maybe this case will get more attention with the police activity in the area. I do hope this young woman gets identified.

    Hi Distracted,

    I actually emailed the OPP with this one a few years back along with another case, but I never did hear back on that one. Like you said it is far off, but I thought the broken nose and rib was interesting.
