    WY - Sweetwater Co., Wht/HispFem 213UFWY, 24-32, off I-80, rose tattoo, Mar'92

    This young woman was murdered in a horrific manner after being brutally beaten, strangled and raped, possibly by a serial killer- and then she was thrown out like nothing better than trash.

    I think there's a high likelyhood that she can be identified and I hope you keep her statistics & manner of death in mind when you're looking through missing persons/homicide files. She was a mother, wore a wedding ring, and had a rose tattoo on her right breast. She was tall and thin, LE has her fingerprints and the killers DNA.

    signed work

    A close up look at the tattoo shows what appears to be a signature on the work. I would think the inits could be tracked down if they were given enough TV play.

    Sc ?

    Not sure if the inits are S C but if they are:
    Here is an interesting coincidence. I don't know how long this outfit has been in business.

    The 1st initial does look like an S to me and the 2nd could be a C. Can you email the photo to the business and ask if it's their work?

    Doe is working now

    The Doe Network:
    Case File 213UFWY

    Unidentified White Female
    • Located on March 1 , 1992 in Sweetwater, Wyoming


    • Cause of death was homicide. The victim had been stabbed and strangled.

    Vital Statistics


    • Estimated age: 24 - 32 years old
    • Approximate Height and Weight: 5'8" (173 cm); 125 - 130 pounds (57-59 kg)
    • Distinguishing Characteristics: She was White with predominately Hispanic characteristics or Hispanic with Native characteristics. Dark brown or black hair and brown or black eyes. She had a vertical Cesarean scar on her abdomen and a one-inch scar on her left calf.
    • Clothing: She wore a gold-colored necklace and a plain gold-colored wedding-type ring, which sat on her left ring finger. Detectives found a pair of pink panties and a pair of sweat pants nearby.
    • Dentals: Avaiable some dentistry
    • Tattoos: She had a distinctive tattoo of a rose on the right breast.
    Case History
    On March 1, 1992, a trucker pausing at an Interstate 80 turnout known as Bitter Creek spotted the victim's body lying face down in the snow, probably dumped from a truck months earlier.

    The victim was probably killed elsewhere and dumped near the westbound side of the highway between October 1991 and February 1992.

    The body, completely nude, appeared as if it had been dropped out of a truck and came to rest at the bottom of a slope. The cause of death was listed as an ice pick or similar object inserted in the victim's left nostril, penetrating her sphenoid bone. Examiners also found signs of strangulation, beating trauma to the face and jaw, as well as anal and vaginal sexual assault.

    The sophistication of the killing points to the possible involvement of a serial offender. Investigators managed to obtain an excellent set of fingerprints from the victim but have yet to learn her identity. Detectives have determined the killer's blood is type O.

    Maybe the letters could be S and G?

    What is after the C? Anyone have any graphic software that would let you blow up the picture to see if you can see the letters closer?

    I don't have great photo software, these are the best I could do, hopefully someone else can do better -

    Original

    Black & White Sepia Toned

    Close Up Black & White
    (sorry, this is small, you'll have to save it, open it and enlarge)


    It appears to me that the "S" has a line through it, and there's a dot in the middle of the "C". Really I'm not sure they're even letters. Also, remember the image is sideways, and maybe it's meant to be read top to bottom instead?

    A vertical c-section scar most likely means it was an emergency C-section. Just a thought
