    Danaya, I'm sorry you missed the warning signs that are posted right where the post mortem photo link is

    ***WARNING, the content might be disturbing to some viewers)***

    also,


    *****WARNING***** The news article contains post-mortem photograph, which might be disturbing to some viewers


    as well as,


    Actual Photo (Cropped) = wont post the link here in case someone doesn't want to see it, and clicks on link my mistake.
    The link to the big size photo is @ link below (scroll all the way down, where pdf files links are (view at your own discretion).

    Link to OPP page *warning* small size photo of the Nation River Lady at link:

    ------------

    ITA, that she looks older in those sketches, maybe it is the hair style. So sad that after all this time she hasn't been identified. If she was not from the area, and didn't have any family to report her missing, perhaps her neighbours and friends were told by the perp that she went back to her town, province, country?

    Noooo, I was cruising the OPP website (I do every few months) in the unsolved cases section. It had nothing to do with what you posted. Instead, the OPP didn't post any type of warning. I then typed it in at websleuths here to see if anyone had been discussing this case. I should have been more clear.

    It's possible she was an immigrant, yeah.

    Nation River slaying victim had webbed feet: police

    Last Updated: Friday, November 3, 2006 | 1:32 PM ET

    Police have released an intriguing detail in an effort to identify a slain woman in a 30-year-old cold case — the victim had webbed feet.
    OPP Det. Insp. Phil George, who is in charge of the case, said someone who was afraid to speak 30 years ago may now be able to do so.

    He said he finds it hard to believe that someone didn't know the victim.

    "Maybe we just didn't reach out to the right people or they did contact us and we didn't listen," he said this week. "Maybe we just missed it somehow."

    Police believe the woman's body was thrown into the Nation River from Highway 417.
    Those captivated by her story still search the river banks for clues. (CBC)

    Nearly 200 bodies, no names;
    OPP try to identify remains - some dating back decades - turn to the public for help
    She’s known only as the “Nation River Lady.” She was murdered 35 years ago, and nobody knows her name. At least, no one has come forward to identify her.

    Her body still lies in a freezer in the Toronto morgue She is the oldest such unidentified person there among 120 unclaimed bodies.
    The morgue has a separate storage area for unidentified remains, where the temperature is kept lower to assist in their preservation.

    Bodies that are the subject of homicide cases remain in the city morgue until the police have completed their investigation. Bodies are kept in regular storage at 4C and longer-storage temperatures are kept at minus 20C.

    This case may have gone really cold, but officials still hope to solve it
    .
    Loam maintains an internal database to compare missing persons and unidentified remains in addition to the website where tips on posted cases are received from the public.

    “Some of these may be bodies and some may be just skeletal remains,” Loam said.

    Through the website, police also hope to harness the power of so-called "web sleuths" who search for missing persons as an online hobby.

    Loam says that since Project Resolve was launched, 10 bodies have been identified, along with 35 missing persons.

    •Discovered on August 16, 1975 in East Haven, New Haven County, Connecticut.
    •Estimated date of death: August 11, 1975.

    Vital Statistics
    •Estimated age: 18 - 28 years old
    •Approximate Height and Weight: 5'5" - 5'6"; 125 lbs.
    •Distinguishing Characteristics: Brown hair, parted in center. Brown/hazel eyes. She had pierced ears. She may have had a small mole under the chin. She possibly had comestic surgery to reduce the size of the nose.
    •Dentals: Not Available. Probable orthodontic care.
    •Clothing: No clothing located.
    Case History
    The woman’s strangled body was found by a truck driver on a rainy August 16, 1975, floating in a drainage ditch behind the former Bradlees department store on Frontage Road. She was wrapped in a canvas tarpaulin and she was gagged and bound by black antenna wire around her neck, waist and knees. Police believe she was killed somewhere else and dumped on Frontage Road. She died of asphyxiation by suffocation at least five days prior to discovery.
    Dried white paint spots on the tarpaulin might indicate the murderer had connections with the painting trade.

    Here's a map showing Casselman ONT, CA to East Haven CT

    Could these be related?
    This is an interesting find. Did you send it in to O.P.P , great catch hoping4truth.

    Looks reasonably close. Given the high-profile nature of this case, and the high monetary reward offered, I would think that they looked into all of their local listed MP's. But you never know. I'd call it in just to be sure.

    Canada isn't very cooperative with rule-out lists, so the only way to know is to call it in.

    State of Remains

    There was a link in this thread earlier from Canada's unidentified, you can search this thread as I don't know how to link. Was wondering if picture on site is really a post moterm picture, because if it is I don't believe she could have been in the water the time frame they give. I can still remember one of our fingerprint technicians telling us a story about how she was called out to fingerprint someone that died in there home while talking a bath. She said they determined by what the neighbors told her that he had only been dead two weeks at most and that his body had turned the bathtub into tomato soup and no fingerprints could be obtained. Remember her saying the worst cases to fingerprint were those that had been in water or dry heat (like an apartment with heater on in winter, or without ac in the summer, guess those found in deserts as well would fall under dry heat) decompose at a much faster rate. Then blood still being on the bridge? Anyone know if rain would wash blood away on this type of surface?

    Attaching a link to unidentified female found in McDonald County, MO on 2 December 1990.

    http://www.websleuths.com/forums/sho...hlight=ontario

    This UF had 6 different bindings on her, including coaxial cable, and her head was wrapped in a towel. Very similar to the Nation River lady. They both had expensive dental work that has never been traced.

    Page 1, post #2 of this thread (Nation River lady) it is mentioned that another UF was found in East Haven, CT on 16 August 1975 with antenna wire wrapped around her neck, waist and knees. She also had good orthodontic care as well as cosmetic surgery in the past.

    That's 3 women that cannot be identified where antenna/coaxial cable was used and all had good/expensive dental care that cannot be traced.

    On the OPP missing/unidentified persons website there are 3 more cases of UF's with good dental care that cannot be traced.

    http://www.missing-u.ca/UIs.aspx

    Case no. 20050023OPP - UF found Napanee, Ont 30 December 1984 - extensive dental care

    Case no. 20050028OPP - UF found Cobourg, Ont 9 November 2002 - previous dental work

    Case no. 20050002OPP - UF found Rockwood, Ont 28 August 2005 - partial plate.

    Imo, these women were around money prior to their murders but no one has reported them missing and LE cannot trace their dental work. Does not make sense to me, but there has to be a reason. Should LE be looking for a dentist/dental surgeon? Btw, all of these women were slim, 25 years+, dressed fashionably for the time frame (smart casual/sporty), some had painted nails and dyed hair. Disposable income is needed for these things.

    Have sent this in to the OPP Resolve Unit.

    Sylvie Ouimet

    Age: 20
    Missing since: April 1975
    Height: 163 cm (5’4”)
    Weight: 56 kg (124 lbs.)
    Distinguishing Characteristics: White female. Chestnut hair; blue eyes


    Sylvie was living with her parents in Laval.
    At the time of her disappearance, she was hospitalized at the Albert Prevost Institute of Montreal.


    Nation River Lady:

    Found: May 3rd, 1975
    Height: 160cm (5'3" )
    Weight: 45kg (100lbs)
    Distinguishing Characteristics: Shoulder-length brown hair (recently dyed reddish-blond). Slight build; she had no prior pregnancies. Blood evidence found on the bridge suggested that the victim had been killed 1 to 4 weeks prior to discovery.


    ***Sylvie and the unidentified women are only an hour and a half apart. I would also like to point out that most of the items in question were manufactured and sold in Montreal, where Sylvie again went missing.

    Unfortunately, the authorities in Canada will never tell you if your lead doesn't pan out. They will only tell you if it does (and only if you qualify for a reward).
