    I asked if we were confident with the age range and got this response:

    I believe that she must be at least 14 and she is not over 24. But 15-17 is a pretty good bet.

    Just talked to Dr.Derrick:

    "I was just in the act of emailing you. Our office did not release the approximation – it was released by the Harris County Sheriff’s Office. When viewing the approximation, please concentrate on the mid-face. The teeth are not as perfect as they appear and the hair is too light and not curly enough. The approximation also makes her look older than she is."

    I was looking at the generic looking NCMEC CT-scan recon of Smurfette, and decided to liven her up a little bit.



    (Note that this facial reconstruction is based on the NCMEC reconstruction (above left) that was created from a CT-Scan image of her skull. This is only an estimations of how she might have looked in life. Details such as her overall look, and the shape of her eyes, lips, etc. are not intended to be exact depictions)

    Today marks the third-year anniversary of Smurfette's body being found. I haven't been able to stop thinking about her all day. I swear this girl haunts me.

    I made a FB page here: https://www.facebook.com/Identify-Sm...2089777593140/
    I'm still in the process of setting it up, but I think it's looking pretty good so far. Does anyone have any suggestions? I very rarely use FaceBook, so there might be some features and stuff that I'm missing.

    Since the name was never confirmed I can go ahead and share. Sounds like they got a call from someone who believed they may have been an accquiantence of Smurfette, they gave the name "Briana" since it was never confirmed one can only assume it was an alias Smurfette used, or this accquiantence was wrong and didn't actually know Smurfette..or the name could sound similar to "Briana" but is not exact. There was only one Briana in namus to compare, and she was ruled out as she had been found safe.

    Still think about Smurfette constantly❤️

    Maybe "Briana" was never reported missing? Or she could have been wrong. I'm curious to hear about more elaborate details.

    There arent really too many details, other than what is all over the first hundred-or so pages of the original thread. I know I've always stuck by Dr. D concerning the age of smurfette, but I'm beginning to think she could be a bit older than 17, which could be why there isn't a missing persons report that corresponds with this case

    OK--really off topic. That summer '12, I went to the Belgian Comic Strip Center in Brussels (which is such a nice city BTW) and went to see the Smurfs section, that's where Smurfs were invented. It really shocked me to think that right about two months before this girl wearing a Smurfette shirt died, I was in the Smurfs museum, and she didn't know she was going to die so soon. It is so horrible!

    I agree, Lyssav, that it seems she could be over 17. Since the days of Marilee Bruszer's death, technology has gotten better but it is not without its flaws.
