    What kind of cyst, I wonder? Ovarian?

    Seriously, why mention the surgery for the cyst if you're not even going to say where the cyst was removed? I mean, isn't that kind of important information?

    Yeah, or an oral cyst (Mr. Carbuff had one of those), or a sebaceous cyst, or a lung or liver cyst, or a ganglion cyst (in the wrist).

    Ginger Hudson has a scar inside her lower lip which could be from removal of an oral cyst: http://doenetwork.org/cases/1161dfks.html She's got a pretty fair facial resemblance and would have been 38 at the UID's time of death, but nothing else is particularly close.

    Rock City t-shirt makes me think of the old "see rock city" which was located near Chattanooga TN I believe. It is also the nickname for Detroit. She may be from one of those 2 areas.

    Mary Kushto missing May 29, 1998 from Osceola County. Right height, weight, hair, eyes, and she has a nonspecific scar on her shoulder. Could have been a ganglion cyst. She's not on the rule out either. Not sure where she would have been for months though. http://www.doenetwork.org/cases/3214dffl.html

    I'm trying to make out the design on the shirt and not having much luck. I have a general impression there's a motorcycle facing us head on, and possibly a wing design? And it looks like it says LA in the ribbon underneath.

    There's an LA Rock City news "L.A.'s local rock newspaper since 1983" Does it look like a globe in the background on the shirt?

    If you blow it up, it looks to say "News" underneath "Rock City." Good find!
