    WA - Seattle, WhtFem 159UFWA, 33-45, Suicide in Hotel -Alias: "Mary Anderson", Oct'96

    Unidentified White Female

    Located in Seattle, King County, Washington on October 11, 1996

    Cause of death was suicide.


    Vital Statistics
    Estimated Age: 33 - 45 years old
    Approximate Height and Weight: 5'8"; 240 lbs.
    Distinguishing Characteristics: Reddish-brown hair and brown eyes. She used a copper intrauterine device. She had some sort of breast surgery at some point. It had produced scars beneath both breast and around the nipple area. Her hair was combed, her nails were painted cream white and she wore make-up.
    Dentals: Dental plate
    Clothing: She wore black leggings and a black top.


    Case History
    This woman committed suicide in Seattle, WA. She checked in to a room at Seattle's Hotel Vintage Park on October 9, 1996 under the name Mary Anderson. She paid cash for her room. She left an non-existent address of 132 East Third Street, New York, NY 11103; and a phone number of 212-569-5549; the phone number does not exist either. When she failed to check out of her room two days later as expected, hotel staff entered the room and found her deceased. She had taken cyanide.
    Investigators found a note scribbled upon hotel stationery:

    To Whom It May Concern.
    I have decided to end my life and no one is responsible for my death.
    Mary Anderson.
    P. S. I have no relatives. You can use my body as you choose.

    A large black Bible lay open across her chest. It was opened to the Twenty-Third Psalm.

    The woman's miscellaneous belongings -- velour outfits, shoes, slippers, black leather gloves, leather purse, Estée Lauder cosmetics, toothpaste, perfume, Metamucil, Crystal Light, panty hose, a kitchen bowl, and an iron -- were packed in several luggage bags.

    I am glad someone posted this case. It has always intrigued me.

    Here is another link for poor Mary

    http://seattlepi.nwsource.com/specials/mary/ - Who was Mary Anderson and how did she die?

    If she said that she has no family, it would be so hard to identify her as it is unlikely she was reported missing.

    So sad....

    When I reviewed this case, I thought it was strangely similar to the "Lyle Stevik" one

    Similarities

    - both checked into Washington hotels
    - both committed suicide 2 days after they checked into the hotels
    - both had surgeries at one time in their lives
    - both gave adresses that were not their own (hers was non-exsistent, his was for a motel in Idaho)
    - both paid for hotel rooms in cash
    - both left notes

    Strange coincidences. The surgery one is probably just a fluke because most people have had some form of surgery in their lives. But the rest is quite strange.

    Very strange coincidences, wonder if LE ever knew about the coincidences between both cases??

    Hopefully someone knows who Mary is...

    unfortunatley, IMO none of the things add up to a "pact" or even connect. a lot of people commit suicide outside of homes or places where they are comfortable.

    I didn't think so myself about the cases connecting- I thought it was kind of a small coincidence, less of a connection

    WA-King County Jane Doe - found Oct. 1996

    I searched and did not find any other posts for her. This one seems so solveable, there are so many details given in the description!

    I wonder if the IUD would have had a lot number to cross reference to what physician it was sold to?

    I do not think she was sold to a physician. Under the first link, near the bottom of the page is this:

    Her body was embalmed and buried at King's County expense in Seattle's Crown Hill Cemetery at Grave No. 197-A.

    IUD - the birth control device that they said she had. Generally medical devices have serial numbers or lot numbers. I wonder if they are able to ascertain if the IUD (intrauterine device) has such a number.

    The 2 reconstructs on doenetwork look like 2 entirely different people.

    If i'm not mistaken, IUD's are left in for extended periods of time?

    Wonder what breast surgery she would have had? Certainly not implants, ot they would have mentioned that?

    I agree-when I read the description of her and saw the picture, I thought she was alot thinner than they described. The second picture appears to be more what her size woud have been. I was wondering about the surgery too--I wonder if she had breast cancer?
