    This Jane Doe's description fits perfectly to Ashley Fuller Reed. Even the clothing description is consistent.

    Has anyone ever done any stats on the I-45 clusters? I can't seem to remember. Hope you've ID'd her and she can rest in peace and go home to her loved ones.

    I will be shocked if this isn't a match. Thank you, Carl. Hopefully Ashley can rest in peace soon.

    Last week, Ashley's cousin contacted me to ask me the same question. I had not, so I contacted Michael Nance (NamUs Regional Admin for Texas) by telephone. He looked at the casefiles and said that both say DNA is available, but the profiles might not be held at the same lab. He told me that he will double-check to see if a manual comparison will be necessary.

    3 hours down I-45. Around 11 months before JD was found. Height and weight are close to the estimates.

    Bit of a long shot as both height and weight are over the estimates. Wearing blue denim skirt when last seen. 4 hour drive from found location. Fits in to 2 year timeline.
