    One of the women who administered the Grateful Doe FB page messaged me today and showed me this woman for whom she just created a NamUs MP casefile. (As of today, the casefile is still unpublished)



    She was asking me if I had any UID suggestions for her. This City of Industry Jane Doe seems to me to be a plausible possible.

    It is very difficult to tell, but if you look near her left ear, there appears to be an earring that *might* be similar to the Jane Doe's earrings. On the other hand, it might just be an anomaly in the photo.

    Three ruleouts (https://identifyus.org/en/cases/4123). She has dentals, DNA, and fingerprints.

    The following people have been ruled out as being this decedent:

    First Name Last Name Year of Birth State LKA

    Elaine Allenbach 1965 Washington
    Judith ODonnell 1961 New York
    Patricia Schmidt 1964 Virginia

    What was the post-mortem interval? I'm guessing she wasn't severely decomposed because they discussed her puncture marks. But I'm still curious, was she dumped during the nighttime and found in morning?

    I don't think she was there for more than a day.

    I spent a while poking at vintage jewelry sites last night looking for the earring. Didn't find much so far, but I did find a few of different design but made of similar materials that were all from Hong Kong. The plastic leaves are apparently supposed to look like jade. Wish we had a color photo...

    doesn't hurt to submit... did Allbritton have a drug history? if she was using heroin (as needle marks suggest) she would easily lose 30 pounds in that time. also, on someone that tall 30 pounds wouldn't be a HUGE difference (I am 5"8 and big boned, sure you notice a 30 pound weight gain but not the same as you would on a petite woman)
