I think the circumstances rule out Toni Bachman. Her Charley page has more details: http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/b/bachman_toni.htmlOpinions expressed are strictly my own (who else would they belong to???)

Jane Bui seems possible because of her spleen scar, but I would think the dentals would mention a gold tooth. http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/b/bui_jane.html
I also found Vickie Baliel, who disappeared from California in August 1997. At 5'5" and 170 lbs, she's probably a bit small. http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/...el_vickie.html
Crist has tattoos that aren't mentioned for the deceased, which makes her very unlikely. Dunn likewise, though she does have an abdominal scar and might be worth checking further to see if tats might have been destroyed by decomposition.
Found a couple of others who also had tats, nobody that looked very promising.

Anyway, she's been ID'ed. Actually, I think she was ID'ed a couple years ago and word just now got to DoeNet.
Angela Rae Pilkerton, missing from Louisville (1997?) has apparently just been ID'ed. I'm from near Louisville, but haven't seen much of anything about her.
And I'm really confused as to the details. On DoeNetwork's "Closed Cases 2016" page, there is a link (or a copy of a story) from 2014 (Coroner releases identity of body found near
Churchill Downs). I think it's from WAVE-3 (Louisville, KY) as it has a link to another story from them.
Mother finds body in backyard
WAVE-3 (NBC, Louisville KY)
"I found a body that was laying down face down on the ground."
A mother of two young girls was shaken up after finding a woman's dead body while throwing out the trash Saturday morning. The body was behind her fence at her home in the 1200 block of Phyllis Avenue, just blocks from Churchill Downs.Police have not said who the woman might be or how she was killed. She was in her early fifties.
Terry is left to wonder what happened and why.
"All I keep thinking was, 'Why was this my house.' I would have never expected anything like this to happen at my residence," Terry said.
Could this lady have just been hiding out around Louisville for well over a decade?
That's what those news stories sounded like. She was definitely a "fresh" body as the lady that found her in 2014 thought that she could have OD'ed or something. They weren't decomposed or skeletal remains.
