    The shape of the face of this Jane Doe kinda matches, but Jane Doe is listed as 4" shorter than Amanda. Amanda's glasses in the photo do not appear tinted so am unsure.

    could be

    Looks like a possibility. Height & weight estimates could be off a little on the remains found.

    The Jane Doe is not Amanda. The above article gives a really detailed account of the search for Amanda. So sad - I hope she's found soon.








    During a recent search through Websleuths.com, The Enterprise discovered that in January, a user with the screen name PonderingThings made a possible connection between Amanda and the body found in the Phoenix desert.

    "OK. I've finished my searches and these are the possibilities I've come up with. The closest match is Amanda, in my opinion, but the chin is off. Still don't know...," PonderingThings wrote.

    About a month ago, the Enterprise contacted Phoenix police about the possible connection, and investigators there then contacted Orange deputies.

    It seemed the family's wait could be over soon.

    But it wasn't Amanda.

    The girl apparently is the daughter of a woman living somewhere in California, police said.

    May Amanda Rest in Peace. Her story is so sad, and I hope her daughter will be able to at last form a bond with her maternal grandmother.

    That article was well-written, but I'm still wondering how Amanda's body was released for burial if LE didn't have (I assume) her real SSN or identifying information. Likewise, how did she get prenatal care and hospitalization when she had her daughter? One of the photos shows her shortly after she gave birth to her daughter in what is clearly a medical setting, i.e. not a home birth.
