    Thank you for creating this thread! I saw it on the doe network and thought this needs to be on WS! Also they remind me of the buckskin doe.

    No Problem! I'm hoping the members here can hunt down more info on their case as it sounds like there is a lot more to the story of the night they went missing.

    Interesting case.

    Per the FB links, the mother is saying the twins contacted her. (Sorry, I really don't "do" FB so I'm not sure which links are best to post. Heck, I may be breaching the rules by posting this ??!)

    "... Those girls wanted to come home, they wrote and told me so. I wrote them immediately to get to the airport and call me. I was ready to get them on a plane. Never heard anything back, then a few weeks later I called the Pompano Beach Police Dept..."

    Yeah, this is an interesting story.

    I was just reading about them yesterday in Namus while looking for a UID. They are very petite girls.

    Hey this says 5'6". DN says 4'6". 5'6" sounds much more reasonable to me for the age and weight.

    Can someone explain to me the phone charges thing? How was it possible for the girls (or anyone) to make a bunch of calls from Florida but to charge their mother in New Jersey? Does this mean they were just calling her house "collect" from Florida? But it makes it sound like they didn't know about the calls until they received a bill?

    Huh, Namus has them as really short too: https://www.findthemissing.org/en/cases/34729/0/

    I would guess the newspaper height is more accurate.

    Here are the two UID cases from Weeki Wachee that police thought could be one of the girls:
    https://identifyus.org/en/cases/12579
    https://identifyus.org/en/cases/12589

    These UID's are both estimated at 64 inches. If the girls were really 10 inches shorter than that, there is no reason police back then would have been trying to match one of them to these remains. JMO.

    I wonder if there are eye witnesses that saw BOTH girls at the club? Seems strange that Peggy reports Patty missing, but then it is canceled days later but the girls don't go home; They stay with the boyfriend that Peggy was supposedly afraid just days earlier had harmed Patty? Did BOTH girls go into the police station to cancel the missing report?

    I found a podcast with an interview with the girls' mother. Hope it's okay to post: https://breaker.audio/e/18098903

    I will listen later (it's LONG) and try to summarize if the link is allowed here.

    ETA: There is a summary of the podcast with a lot of new info and 2 different pictures of the girls here: https://www.facebook.com/65013865174...type=3&theater

    I don't know if you still can because I haven't placed on in ages, but it was called a third party call.
    Using an operator, you'd call one number and charge it to yet another phone number. In my area, if you called from a payphone and tried to charge it another number, someone at the billed number had to pick up and agree, but not if you called from someone's house. In that case, the billed party wouldn't see the charge until the bill was received.
    All you need is love and. . . .(fill in the blank)

    could the chipped tooth be our Arkansas Eldorado doe? She looks similar and the story could work out , especially with the murder etc ?

    or could they have killed the guy in the trunk?

    Does Eldorado JD have a chipped tooth?!? I do see a similarity in her looks and both the girls actually.
