    The NamUs page for this case has been restricted/pulled. Excuse my ignorance, but is there a way to confirm if this UID has been identified?

    Tips help identify dead woman found in Anchorage homeless camp

    Anchorage police found her dead in a tent at a homeless camp near Valley of the Moon Park on Nov. 6. Somebody had called to say she wasn’t breathing, the police report said. There were no obvious signs of foul play.

    (...)

    It turned out that lots of people recognized the woman. After the bulletin was publicized, more than 50 calls came in about her, Department of Health and Social Services spokeswoman Dawnell Smith said.

    (...)

    Anchorage police released her name and age: Christy Williams, age 27. Little else is publicly known about her life and what led her to the homeless camp near Valley of the Moon Park.

    That's hard to say. Once someone is identified, their page will give you a "Permission Error..." message. I wish they'd state if someone was actually identified, rather than giving you an "error" message.

    There are also UID's whose info is in the process of being updated that give you the same message. And sometimes they're withdrawn by LE for reasons unknown (though they haven't actually been identified). That's the case with a UID somewhat local to me. She was found in northern KY and her case-file has been pulled though she hasn't been identified.

    Though there are many cases where an ID isn't publicly announced, I'd check the local (to the area of discovery) news media to see if anything is said about an ID. That can be tricky too, in the case of someone being missing from somewhere that's far from the place they're discovered.

    But since the story acts like this ID is "official," we should move this to the Identified forum.
