    * Estimated age: Adult - 25-35
    * Approximate Height: Cannot Estimate
    * Distinguishing Characteristics: Skeletal findings:
    Presence of anomalous morphology in the sacrum could be helpful to identify individual if antemortem radiographs are available;fairly recent trauma to the anterior pelvis with some healing/remodeling might be in medical record; presence of fractures in sacrum and left innominate suggests a traumatic death.Some osteophytic lipping on the anterior articular surface of the sacrum.Trauma may have been caused around 6 months before death. Spina bifida occulta is present in the first sacral element.The inferior processes of the fifth sacral element are asymmetrical, with the right process being longer than the left.

    * Dentals: Dental information / charting is not available

    .

    Case History:
    2731-94 was recovered in the Narragansett Bay, by the Newport Bridge, Newport, RI by the fishing vessel 'Norma Jean'. 2867-94 was recovered in Fall River, Massachusetts. There is very little possibility that these bones came from separate people therefore they are identified by forensic anthropologist as being from the same individual.

    I was noticing that the skeletal findings on this Jane Doe indicated "recent trauma to the anterior pelvis".

    Debra Cressotti was from the neighboring state of Massachusetts, and she also had a prior trauma to her pelvis from a horse riding accident.

    There is a 9-year difference between her disappearance and the Jane Doe's discovery. However, this little detail should warrant a look, IMO.

    I was also noticing that there is a second UP casefile UP12682, also involving bones found in two separate occasions in Narragansett Bay. The bones from this find were thought to be from the same individual:

    https://identifyus.org/en/cases/12682

    I am guessing that they have already determined that the bones from UP12682 aren't from the same individual as the bones from UP12662, though we can't presume that.

    But whether or not the two UP cases are from the same individual, Katrina McVeigh would also be an obvious possible for one or the other (if not both).

    Katrina's clothing was found on the banks of the Blackstone River, which leads directly into Narragansett Bay. She also fits the description in terms of age, gender, race (for UP12682, but not necessarily for UP12662), and timeframe.

    Spina bifida occulta is present in the first sacral element, Debra Cressotti profile not cite this important detail.

    Spina Bifida occulta often exists undetected.
