    ... no more Anna Nicole threads for me, this is the kind of stuff that brought me here and this is what i need to get back to.
    What an awesome idea KT!!.... It's ashame how LE is literally blowing this off...even when someone has practically done all their legwork!!

    I just want YOU to get the credit for the discovery.
    I agree. Also GREAT JOB . No doubt it's a match.

    If this woman disappeared from Santee County, SC, why is the El Paso, TX PD the investigating agency listed on the doenetwork page for her?

    It must be where she was found. That would be the investigating agency, but I am sure they are working together.

    Teonspaleprincess, I am so proud of you! I reaqd this in the middle of the night and was to pooped to go turn on the light to post, but came back tonight to say thank you for the wonderful work you are doingt. And a Web Sleuther to boot! Neato!!!

    Do we know anything more about this girl. Any newspaper articles? It would be very nice to learn more about her since she is now kind of a Websleuth friend.

    No. Look at the two pages at Doe. The UID woman was found in Campbell County, TN.

    Details, Scandi!

    It looks like Texas was a typo since the doe was found in Tennessee.

    That is a very good question, although I'm not sure it is relevant info in finding Torres Smith. It might be that this is where her family lives and they filed her missing persons' report there?

    I agree that there are a lot of similarities between the two. Good find, Teons.
    What bugs me is that there is no mention of any missing teeth and partial dentures on the unidentified woman, as Ada Torres Smith is described to have. You would think they would put something like that in a description.

    What bugs me even more is the reaction from LE towards Teons. Check this tip out, you ....... ! Seriously. This kind of unresponsiveness must be a blow in the face for anyone looking for a missing loved one.
    I think the next step should really be Pepper's suggestion ("OK, here's my next suggestion. Print out both pages. Take them to your local police department, and ask to speak to the desk sergeant or the duty officer. Show him/her both pages, and ask them to contact the authorities listed.")
    I hope you're up for that, Teons.... Don't give up on this woman/these women just yet.

    I found what I believe to be a match to a UID that was found locally on the Doe Network. I have been working since November 2005 to get LE to do the DNA test to see if it is a match. I have also been in contact with the family of the missing woman. They also think that it is a match. The problem that we are having is jurisdictional. Who does the DNA test, the agency with the missing person report or the agency who found a UID? Christine2448 has been working closely with someone from the agencies involved and hopefully the match will be confirmed soon.

    Good find Teon, hopefully your match will be confirmed a lot sooner.

    Here is the link to the match that Christine2448 and I are working on:

    I like KT's idea about contacting the media....surely they would be interested in a possible solved missing persons case!!

    Well, I'm severely irked that LE blew this off.


    I'm going to do something. I work at a business, and there's a LE officer that comes in every morning that works in crime scene analysis for the local police department. I'm not in SC, TN or TX, but maybe if someone within the LE community sends it to them they'll listen. And I'll point her towards this thread, so she can see that our "Princess" gets the proper credit for allowing the family some peace.

    So sorry that I haven't been on to post an update, been working overtime, and they no longer allow us on the internet during work hours. The police from Texas FINALLY called me today. They asked if she (the UID) also had a tattoo that said Delila (which she does)and they said that they are reasonably sure that it is her! They asked me for the contact info for the TN detective that I spoke to and said that they are ready to get the wheels turning to make a positive ID. This is a very puzzling case. I wondered also why Texas was working the case if she was missing from SC. I figured that whoever reported her missing lived in Texas. I haven't been able to find anything at all on Ada except for what is listed on the doe network. I wonder where she could have been between the time she went missing in June 1996(?) and when she was discovered in Jan. 1997 since it says she was killed only days before she was found. As for the dentures, I don't know why that would not be mentioned in the UID persons report. I wonder if she had been in trouble with law? THe SC Det. said that some of the tattoo's looked like "jailhouse tat's". He also told me some details that were not listed about the case, but I don't know if I should post them here. Thanks you all so much for the kind words. I am working on another missing woman that was found near the same located almost exactly a year later. The det. thinks that cases may be related.
    Happy New Years

    That is fantastic news teonspaleprincess! Please keep us posted with what you are able to talk about. I hope that this case is solved once and for all, and that if there is a relationship between the two that is resolved.

    This is great news teonspaleprincess and it looks like a match. Please keep us posted. One thing I was not happy about was LE's response.
