    She just said that they are of Karen Becker, not Kimberly. 😕

    I don't know if they're relevant. I'll post if someone thinks that there's a connection.

    Iím glad that she has been identified. Iím also glad that her daughter is not in any kind of danger and that she will know her motherís real identity.

    I will say that it was a good thing that the funeral home collected the DNA. It was her saved DNA that later made it possible for a positive identification be made thru a DNA match.

    The important thing to remember is that during the time when Kimberly was BST, LEK, and LER, she never had been arrested, booked, and fingerprinted. Thatís why her fingerprints never showed up in any criminal fingerprint databases.

    There is one thing of interest that I want to point out. Look at Jeung in her scribbled notes. Now drop the ng and you have Jeu.

    And when I googled Jeu, I found out that Jeu is a French word. Jeu means game in French. And my dictionary at home also says it means diversion.

    Iím left wondering if the notes were intended to be a game or a diversion so that her real identity wouldnít ever be found out by anyone.

    I'm hoping that when this story is picked up by the Dallas, East Texas, & Philly papers they add further details on Kimberly/LEK's early life. I am confident there is more to her story.

    We might need to wait until the weekend, but I expect news stories will be written.

    FWIW, a Google search led me to the latest reddit thread on the case. At least one person has commented along the lines:

    Yeah I'm betting theres a lot more to the story than they are letting on. But we will probably never know

I still talk to a couple of close family members, but most of the rest didn't want to hear what I had to say. I feel where Kimberly/Lori was coming from. Many times the little frame house with the cute shutters and picket fence is a house of horrors. I'm glad she finally found her peace.

    I completely empathize with this.

    I hope you're doing well now.

    It's been a long 48 years. But, thank you. And you, also. ❤

    Just getting home from work & am blown away! I am so relieved to know the identity & have some backstory, but like many have already voiced I have my own thoughts on what would make a young woman burn bridges with her mother, sister and entire life. I hope she finally has peace. I am glad to hear that her mother was able to get some closure as well, and the potential for extended family for Lori/Kimberley's child is promising.
    I hope the Ruff family is dogged about getting to know all of them in a close, supervised environment before that child spends any real time with them.
    Finally, I am thinking about all the potential missing young women who caught our eye because of Lori. The Cynthia Perry's of the world- who are still missing without anyone seeming to look. Since we all have some free investigative time on our hands, let's see what else we can turn up!

    Wow, I thought she's out smart everyone long before advance technology exists and never get identified. But it was genealogy expert and DNA solved this mystery woman. I'm glad it's closure for the Ruff, Cassidy, McLean families and Kimberly's only child that deserved to know her name. It's sad to find out that Kim did it in extremely ways due to unhappy with her stepdad, new life, start over in new school, house rules and so forth. I'm stepfather myself and have stepdaughter that wanted no part of me. I worried that she might be estranged from me in the future if her bio family sides are gone before me.
