    It seems few details have been amended or deleted on doe network in her case. In 2006 her age was listed between 25-30 (now 20 - 30), cause of death - strangulation (now deleted), fingerprints available, DNA available (now not available)

    Fingerprint checks have come back negative. Several missing persons checked out negative.

    I think Wanda is a good match to this doe but I don't think she's on any databases so I wouldn't know how to submit a tip.

    Wanda Gail Loe, age 24, went missing from Tahoe City, California in July 1968.
    Wanda was employed at Sunnyside Resort at 1850 West Lake Blvd, on the shore of Lake Tahoe, and she was a reliable employee who would not just take off, according to those who knew her. She had attended Pepperdyne University, and had traveled to Germany prior to coming to the Lake Tahoe region. She was originally from Alabama.
    While I am not sure of the date of her disappearance, her car was found in the parking lot of her workplace and she was never seen again.
    Wanda was often listed as a possible victim of the Zodiac Killer, in part due to the proximity to Donna Lass, who is a suspected victim of the Zodiac.
    However, her boyfriend, Dennis Finn, reportedly confessed to murdering Wanda to a cousin, while heavily intoxicated. Dennis died in 1982, and was never charged with her disappearance.
    It is believed that her remains may be in the Carpenter Valley area, near Truckee, CA, which sits along Donner Pass.
    As of this writing, Wanda’s case is not listed on NamUs or any of the other databases. I hope someone in her family can submit a DNA sample in case her remains are located. I hope she can be found soon.

    If this one hadn't gone missing 2 years later I'd think it was a match

    I'm wondering if there's an email address I can submit Wanda as a possible match? She's not on any databases to the best of my knowledge so I couldn't submit her that way.

    Why isn't the DNA available if it was available in the past?
    The idea that someone's life matters less is root of all evil in this world

    She seems to be in Namus afterall....DNA samples available but testing not completed...

    https://www.findthemissing.org/en/cases/show/38924

    Comparing the stats broadly Wanda is a pretty good fit (except for the circumstances around her missing, expected be murdered but her body is never found ....detailed comparison is needed.

    I'm glad she's finally in namus so that's something.
    I didn't read anything about Wanda being suspected Murdered? Just that She vanished without a trace. There's not much information about her disappearance

    All kinds of stuff about Wanda. No hard prove that she was indeed murdered..just speculations. LE couldn't prove that her cousin killed her although he confessed to this. The Zodiackiller story is just a theory. Her body was never found....

    Everywhere they state that Wanda was happy with her work and not troubled (at least not on the "outsite") ... Jane Doe was a supposed prostitute. That's the reason I have doubts...
