    The 36" pants would be awfully big for 115lb Betsy...

    Seems it's approximately 2 hours drive from Fairmont, NC where Sara went missing to Durham, NC where the UID was found.

    The Namus profile reflects and address of 1725 Carpenter Fletcher Road, Durham, NC. It appears that Ample Storage is located at this address.

    http://www.amplestoragecenter.com/lo...fletcher-road/

    Per public tax records, this property is currently owned by The 1953 Company, LLC.
    http://property.spatialest.com/nc/du...ty/157175/land

    The deed was transferred in September 2009
    http://rodweb.co.durham.nc.us/PA3Pre...=999&type=BkPg

    Based on Electrical Inspections going back to 2007, it appears the building already existed when the deed was transferred.
    http://ldo.durhamnc.gov/durham/ldo_web/ldo_main.aspx

    My logic: If the storage unit was already existing in 2009 when the deed was transferred and the new owners simply took over management of the storage unit, then the remains could be older than 2010?

    I've not had any luck figuring out who owns The 1953 Company, LLC. Will keep looking.

    Oh man, I drove by this place on the regular when I lived in Apex.... creepy thought, especially since we don't know how long the remains have been in there.
    God Grant me the serenity to accept those things which I cannot change, the strength to change those things which I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.

    There comes a point in your life when you realize who matters, who never did, who won't anymore, and who always will. So don't worry about people from your past; there's a reason why they didn't make it to your future.

    Any chance this could be Jennifer Rivkin? Height is close, Caucasian white female with brown hair. Jeans seem the wrong size for 130 lb woman though. Gastonia is just a couple hours south of Durham on I-85.

    Here's her thread on WS:

    I also noticed Lea Ziegler. White Caucasian female, brown hair, height is off at 68-70" but this fits more with the jeans length of 32". That's pretty long for a female, and Lea was a tall woman.But I'm wondering if this 63" and 130 pounds is a correct profile, why did this UID have on size 36-32 jeans? Redressed? Homeless?

    Lea was From Guilford County, High Point area. (Approx an hour drive down I-85 from Durham). Last seen in '08. Her NAMUS entry:

    I'm wondering what triggered someone to look in the unit and find the body? Lack of payment on the storage unit? Could the person who was paying the for the unit be in prison, on the run or perhaps deceased so the unit was sold in an auction like "Storage Wars"? There must be some record of who rented the storage unit right?

    I hope LE is putting forth an effort to identify the renter of the unit and the identity of the victim.

    I find it very odd that the body was placed to the container fully clothed from the waist down (jeans, socks and shoes) but there is no mention of a shirt of any kind. So was the person topless while killed and disposed, or did the killer (or killers, or somebody who didn't quite kill the victim but wanted to hide the body anyway) take his/her shirt for some reason. Maybe a shirt that was especially easy to recognize (a custom design with the victims name, a very recgnizable picture etc, or name embroidered on), maybe the disposer took it as a trophy, or maybe there was evidence (the killer's blood?) spilled on it?
    If the victim was topless while killed, what comes to mind is either chilling (or tanning) at home or own yard (especially if female), or doing sports or fixing something dirty, like a car or a bike (if male).

    # EDIT: sorry, I got confused for some reason. The victim is supposed to be female.

    I live in Durham and I haven't seen any updates on this case in the news. Two thoughts: 1. Since the remains were found in a storage unit, LE should be able to trace the owner of that unit. Unless the owner gave false information when renting the unit. 2. I did a search on the Pulsar watch. If it has a serial number and was registered by the owner, it could provide the identity. What are the chances?
    I hope she's identified.
