    My teeth hurt just reading the description! It makes me HOPE she had access to pain medication, even if it was something like heroin.

    Some people's teeth just get really bad, crowns break off, roots get abscesses, and they can't afford to have them fixed. Teeth in condition like the UID are not usually a result of beatings, because after a beating you can go to the ER and they'll pull the rest out for you.
    (Also, beatings that would ruin that many teeth should have left a broken nose. And reports generally say if teeth are knocked out peri and/or post mortem.)
    But when teeth decay "naturally," you leave them as is, you can't go to an emergency dentist in the United States.
    (I hope I made sense here)

    Based off the sketch, I think Michelle Easton (https://www.findthemissing.org/en/cases/10277/) looks similar in the nose and eyebrows. But she's slightly shorter and has a birthmark on her shoulder.

    Kathleen Dennis (https://www.findthemissing.org/en/cases/14696/) could also be a possible match.

    There's also Anna Zirkle (https://www.findthemissing.org/en/cases/9574/)

    Good possibilities! Remember that UID had been dead about a week, left outside, during June. Presumably her skin was nowhere near pristine, so I would not rule out a missing person for something superficial like a birthmark.

    Doe Network says that UID had
    "No visible scars, marks or tattoos" [bolding mine]. Just because they weren't visible on a body which was left outside for a week in warm weather, does not mean that the person did not have them.

    EDIT: Eason is the best match of the three (in my opinion), specifically her history as a sex worker, and her proximity to the dump site.
    The physical specifics are okay. Eason's two inches shorter than the UID, but then, many missing people's stats are based off their drivers licenses (or other IDs), and we all know how often those are changed! (When I got my learners permit changed to a real license, I asked to update my weight, and the woman wouldn't LET me! Like she thought she was INSULTING me if she added on the 20 pounds I had gained! I sure wish people weren't so fond of pretending to be their 16 year old height and weight.)

    One year off of the upper age limit and way off on the weight -
    https://www.findthemissing.org/en/cases/18948/8


    Two years older than the upper age limit and two inches shorter, but closer to the weight (not that weight matters too much when we're talking about people on the run or that have been abducted) -

    It says your MP has a tattoo on her hand though, the UD doesn't have one. I also don't think they look alike. Recons can definitely be inaccurate, however. Stranger things have happened where IDs are concerned.
