    Poor woman. My question is, where's her recon? Why is CT so terrible about recons?

    As a native nutmegger, I agree it is sad that there is so little info and fewer recons available for these UID cases from CT. We are (were?) a wealthy state but our fiscal management is terrible. Two examples: millions of taxpayer dollars are being sunk into the construction of a baseball stadium in downtown Hartford that may never be finished, and billions have been invested in new intercity buses that hardly anyone uses, yet our road surfaces are among the worst in the country. There is woefully little info in NAMUS as not enough money is earmarked for cold cases.

    On June 5, 1993, the severely burned body of a black female was found in a vacant lot at Lafayette Street and Railroad Avenue. She was estimated to be between five foot one and five foot four and the ages of 25 to 35. Because of the damage to her body the composite sketch pictured here may not be accurate.

    OMG! Thank you for finding this! (It made me realize I put the month wrong in the thread title. Oops...) ((EDIT: Thank u Carl for fixing it!))

    Bridgeport is a terrible area. "Bridgeport, Connecticut, violent crime, on a scale from 1 (low crime) to 100, is 81. Violent crime is composed of four offenses: murder and nonnegligent manslaughter, forcible rape, robbery, and aggravated assault. The US average is 41.4." http://www.bestplaces.net/crime/city...cut/bridgeport I'm not surprised that there's a lot of female murders. Actually, I'm surprised they don't have more UIDs.
