    Victim's Rings
    Case History
    The victim was located on a pile of debris at the end of a Brazoria County road on September 10, 1990
    The skeleton was found by an Alvin man who had pulled off the highway to find a place to urinate. He stepped behind a barricade and saw a skull in an old tire.
    Authorities beleive the rings are the clue to solving the case. Three rings were on the skeleton's fingers. One was silver with a scroll design, another had a turquoise unicorn on it. But investigators think the 1975 Lee High School ring probably has the best chance of leading to her identity. A jeweler told investigators the ring was a size 9 1/2 and had been resized twice. The person it fit was probably about 175 pounds. She would have been far too young for the 1975 class ring to be hers. It could have been given to her by an aunt, an older sister, by anybody.
    The company that made Lee High School's rings doesn't have records from 1975. The Lee class of 1975 probably had about 150 girls. Authorities would like to hear from any of the girls who lost a ring or gave it to somebody else. An ornate "L" inlaid in the blue stone could have stood for the owner's last name or for Lee High School.
    No traces of drugs were found in the bone marrow.



    Do you think the police have thought to post about this on somewhere like classmates.com, where they have message boards for the alumni? Maybe whoever owned the ring will recognize it? I made up an account at that school, my first name being Couldthisring last name Belongtoyou. In my profile, I explained who I was and what I was looking for and left my email address for anyone who may have info. I only saw 3 people with last name starting with "L". I amtempted to email all three.

    You might want to post something on the myspace group for that particular high school.

    Kezlyn, thank you for the link. I emailed someone from that page about this.

    NOTE: I don't see anywhere where the manner of death is stated. So we don't know if LE or the coroner's office has deemed her death accidental, homicide, suicide, natural causes, or undetermined. My guess is that since I don't see a manner of death with the information, Princess Doe's manner of death may be considered to be undetermined. Does anyone know if we can find this out?

    I hate using wikipedia as a reference, but it appears this was a small school.

    Hi everyone
    this is such a great learning process for me- you're so good at this. I wantede to let you know I"ve been poring all morning (since I can't sleep lol) over missing persons reports from texas, and I'm not evgen through the letter "J" yet! My eyesballs are going to fall out of my head!!!

    Here's what my technique has been. I think maybe I need some re-direction. If not, then I give you guys a lot of credit. You have such patience.

    I look at the gender, then the year. For example, this princess is female, found in 1990. She was dead about a year, so that puts us at 1989, with a "disappearance" date range of about (let's just say) 1987-1989. But I don't rule out 1986, just in case, and do a search for 1986-1990. Missing people during that time period, then I look at females reported missing, and since we have a pretty good idea/evidence that she was young, I go that route.
    THERE ARE SO MANY MISSING. ANd since this person's ring is so specific to texas, I am looking in just TEXAS. Holy cow, guys- this is unreal.Does anyone have any suggestions for how I can narrow my search? Does anyone else use my gender/date technique?

    I knew when I came to this site a couple of years ago that there are millions of people who go missing, but this is mind boggling.

    thanks again
    MG

    RKnowley, you rock! Great that you found this. Let's send this to the LE involved, and see if they want to get this. The ring came from that class--that is fact, isn't it? It is a very good lead, and that yearbook should have all of the 75 class, male and female. How do I find out which LE is handling her case. I will send it to them, if I can find the correct LE info to send it to.

    Although, it is possible that the ring was stolen by some thief from the original owner and given to a girlfriend, our Princess Doe, or some other scenario could have occurred where the original owner did not know Princess Doe, it is possible the two knew each other.

    Geesh, I am thinking about buying the book myself.

    Thank you for contacting LE with the yearbook information. Hopefully we can find out who this Princess Doe is. At least we are trying our best.
