    How sad and unfortunate that the remains were put in a landfill. I've never heard of happening as opposed to cremation and/or burial.

    In my browsings of Doe Network I've come across a handful of other cases like this. Frankly it seems to me utterly disrepectful of the fact that these are human remains. Although this case may be one of natural causes, others I've seen given this treatment were very likely murder. In those cases, where the victim has already been discarded like rubbish by the killer, it beggers belief that the police would then also discard their remains like rubbish.

    There is another Pierce County Jane Doe found in 1978 where the remains were also disposed of in a similar fashion by the police, there is speculation that they may have been the remains of presumed Bundy victim Donna Manson but this was never confirmed.

    Marla Jean Thomas http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/t/thomas_marla.html? Coincidentally, she disappeared two years to the day before this UID was found.
