    Ok so off with the height at 5 foot 3 and weight at 185lbs, but this one has a similar face (to the post mortem) in my opinion.

    She also had shoulder length hair at the time she went missing, but we all know haircuts happen.

    Kathi looks pretty similar. With Mary it said she had vitiligo which the medical examiner should have said that the UID had it...

    I wish that LE, namus, and doe network showed a picture of the blankets especially the cartoon blanket. That would be suuuper helpful and is probably the biggest clue in identifying this UID.

    Since her hair isn't pictured (possibly because of damage from the duct tape) they way they describe it it may look similar to this.

    I wonder if the hair was cut neatly or messily/recently because I know long hair might of gotten in the way of the duct taping of the head.

    Was short hair like that on women a thing in the 90's? I also wonder if she had it that way or if her murder(s) shaved it off. I suppose if it was short on the sides and a 1 on top the guilty party would probably not have gone to that trouble to "fade" it.
    The body of an unknown man washed up on Punaluu Beach in 1982. He was wearing an orange Bayley Exposure Suit, purchased from Tacoma, WA.
    His identity today is a mystery, Do you know who Barnacle Bill is?

    That kind of hairstyle was I believe pretty popular in the 90s my mom had that kind of hairstyle during that time actually.

    I think that this UID was tortured terribly and may have had her hair chopped off by her attacker. a la the Hispanic woman who was brutally murdered in TX... she was ID a few years back but I cant remember her name

    Tru and the way the killer duct taped her and then put her in a cabinet. I wonder if the cabinet had some kind of serial number on it???

    joann Cisneros perez was the woman. she disappeared and was found dead 6 months later but had not been dead that long... and was UID for a year. her hands were cut off and her head was also wrapped in plastic plastic bag that was duct taped on. someone had kept her for awhile.

    That's a hefty body weight for the height.

    Of the two missing women suggested, one had vitiligo and the second a partial plate, likely both will be rule-outs.

    cvaldez, yep there is a story here, likely a horror story!

    Purely speculation on my part... but, I can't help but think that this lady had some sort of developmental disability, mental illness or both and hence why the cartoon sheet and possible institutional like hair cut.

    From her appearance, she doesn't strike me as the "fashionable 90s short haircut" type, and would more likely have a homemade buzz cut. Also, the cartoon sheet might have been hers, if in fact she was developmentally disabled.

    Which leads me to wonder, was she in a group home or institutionalized? Or was she under the care of a relative, who could easily have the time, place and means to torture her and also, hide the fact that she is dead by collecting her Social Security?

    Additionally, this person was killed only days previously, which leads me to believe the killer knew when garbage day was, and hence perhaps a person who had formerly worked/lived in the area as a janitor with easy access to a metal cabinet.

    Sorry, my wheels were turning last night... take it for what it's worth.

    That would put her BMI as 37.9, so almost into the super obese category.
