    Case History

    On May 18, 2006, a homeowner in a residential area of the City of Port Jervis observed from his rear window a human cranium on the roof of an adjacent tire business. The skull, according to the witness, was not there the evening before. The cranium was located on a metal roof of a garage building for a local tire company. The skull appeared to have been set on the sloped roof. It was sitting up right and a single hoop earring was located near the skull on the roof. Broken sea shells were also observed near by but it is unknown if they are related.
    Anthropological studies on the skull indicate it belonged to a white female possible of Hispanic descent aged 25-50 years. There does not appear to be any indications of burial or submersion in water, nor is there any apparent trauma. The teeth appear to have been removed post-mortem and after the skull was skeletonized.
    Port Jervis is located at the intersection of New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania and is readily accessed from New York City and other metropolitan areas. Interstate 84, NY 17, US 6, US 209 and the NYS Thruway are all within close proximity or pass thru or by the city.

    It seems most likely that she was murdered; no one would have any reason to hang onto a skull so long after if the person died of natural causes. Poor girl

    What an odd place to leave a skull. But it sounds like it's too large to have been carried there by a bird.
    Opinions expressed are strictly my own (who else would they belong to???)

    Bumping because I had never heard of this case before. Can't find her NamUs... Shouldn't all the NY does be in the system now, since that new legislation happened?

    There is one woman on doe network with a nose like this. I've seen her. I know nothing about her circumstance, but if you find her there, you will know, because he nose is very very large (not to say anything negative about her).

    Checking now, will get back to you as soon as I find her.

    If it helps at all, I am 99% sure that she had blonde hair, shoulder length and an 80's teased hairstyle. Either on nampn or doe.

    I assume it will take some time to get everything uploaded.

    Ok, this isn't the person I was searching for, but here is another MP from NY.

    Kristine Kupta

    http://www.doenetwork.org/cases/2297dfny.html

    Although she went missing in 1998, not 1995, I'm wondering if it's still a possibility.

    There is a lot of information out there about her, like this blog: http://kristinekupka.com/pregnant-ho...g-family-says/

    Her family basically names the killer, although I wont post that here, you can follow the link to find out more. The POI in this case has family and friends in NY/ NJ and his home is about 2 hours from the Jane Doe discovery.

    I'm sorry, I can't find the other woman i'm looking for! What an annoyance. I hope this case is solved quickly!

    Just my 2 cents but the placement/other aspects of the discovery of the remains sound as if the person who placed the remains on the roof considered it a sick joke. This Jane Doe might have had some sort of connection to the area & the person who knows more about what happened to her expected someone to make the connection. (Mentally ill people think like this, often when they aim to offend or hurt.)
    L'chaim!
