    OH - Sandusky, WhtFem UP15854, 20-30, Love Knot Ring, Oct'75

    Here is a 1975 UID case that is not listed in NamUs.

    FBI hopes sketch will help solve 40 year old Ohio cold case
    On October 22, 1975, two hunters found the nude body of the female floating in a tributary of Mud Creek in Ottawa County, Ohio.

    The coroner’s office ruled her death as “questioned death.” It is believed that she had been deceased for 48 to 72 hours at the time of discovery.
    She is believed to have been approximately 5’4” tall, between 20 and 30 years of age in 1975, and between 140 to 150 pounds, with medium-length brown/reddish hair, brown or hazel eyes, pierced ears but was not wearing earrings at the time, and widely spaced teeth with very poor dental health. She was a smoker and had given birth to at least one child, possibly within the year. She did not have any scars, birthmarks, or tattoos.

    Also, a photo of a unique ring that the unidentified female was wearing is being released. It is described as a wire love knot-type ring.

    The ring may also be called a Celtic knot. It looks homemade. There are many similar ones like it on etsy.

    I hope that they've checked out Jan Cotta. That description fits her pretty closely.

    I noticed that as well but everything else seemed to fit for Dorothy so thought I would post and get other opinions. Thanks!

    LOL! We are on the same track. I was typing this and someone posted her already.



    NamUs MP # 8430

    Dorothy Madden went missing from about an hour away in August 1975.

    It was considered a voluntary walkaway per DN, so no one was looking for her. She has a 5 year old son and was possibly pregnant (2.5 months) at the time of her disappearance.

    IDK about the circumstances, but, the heights, weights, age, hair & eye color are all on target.

    On the NAMP page I posted up above it said that her boyfriend first reported her missing as his wife. It turned out they were not actually married but "passed themselves off as being married". I was thinking if she was pregnant, maybe she miscarried. That would explain why the woman found appeared to have given birth recently. If it was her.

    I was thinking the same thing.

    I only looked at that one case so if anyone has hunted down anything else maybe they would be best to submit her/them.

    I'm going to suggest Charlotte Brown who went missing in 1973 from Cleveland.
    She's the same height, but not weight, and appears to have a space between her two front teeth:

    I don't have a strong feeling one way or the other. If you want to submit, go ahead. Thanks!
