Case History
The victim was found in an abandoned car in Maricopa County, Arizona, on February 4, 1997.
She was a known transient who was sleeping in the car when it caught fire.
The car was not hers and was not registered in the state of Arizona.

She also had some distinctive accessories.

* A brown vinyl purse with one handle and a zipper for closure. The purse was empty but had numerous words written on the outside of it in blue ink "Moniqued hates allende spiriteds from out of hell moniqued hates all satan god malesd childrens and shall soon be alal end evil".

* Broken yellow metal necklace with large links, broken yellow metal necklace, watch (worn on right wrist)

She was a known transient; I'm wondering if she suffered from mental illness that left her living on the streets. Rambling writings specifically religious writings seem to associate with schizophrenia--that fits in with the purse writing. Sounds like her necklaces were pretty old, and probably broken before the fire.
