    I edited down the Morgan Munson page as much as I could, and I have no idea when she went missing, though I spent several hours trying to track it down. I'll check the Houston Chron archives now and see if I can find anything there.

    Hi Lanie. I have a gut feeling about what may have happened to poor Tabbetha. I find it odd that her baby was found, "abandoned" on the doorstep of the ex-wife of the baby's father. Hmmm. My guess is that is the last place that a woman would leave a baby in most cases. Very strange. I don't know how much of Princess Blue's skeletal remains were found in Manvel. If they have bones from both feet and ankles they would have been able to tell and would have reported that she had a club foot. But, we just don't know. We want to hold on to any possible match, but I doubt this would be her.

    Sable on the previous thread you had asked what Kimberly Shawn Cheatham's mother's maiden name is and it is Coates. None of them in the class of 75 alumni either. First thing I checked was for her parents or siblings being in the Class of 75.

    Even though Morgan has a fair complexion with blue eyes it does not rule her out as being our Princess Blue. Princess could have had any type of complexion--we just don't know.

    It is interesting that she was last seen boarding a bus heading to Houston, and she is the right height. I wonder if we can find out if she has ties to Houston to see where if at all the ring might fit in.

    Do you have the link for the page on Morgan that you posted? I want to email TX Equisearch and ask them if they have a date last seen for her, and I want to direct them to the link.

    Thank you for doing this research and posting it for us, Lanie!

    The link for Morgan is the giant blue underlined thing at the bottom of the page. When I first tried to post it, the whole thing was humongous, so I shrank the fonts down some.

    I agree with you about having a good guess about what happened to Tabbetha. I still think she could be possible, though remote. The reports for Princess Blue sometimes refer to "incomplete skeletal remains", which could explain the club foot, but it is a pretty far distance to dump a body if my suspicions are correct.

    Lanie, I agree that it would be a pretty far ride to dump a body if it were her and the ex had anything to do with it. It would be too far removed from the ring and from the Houston area. Chances are if he is responsible, he dumped her close by or at least fairly close by. I really think that because there are two strong connections to the Houston area(the REL High School ring and that she was found in Manvel, TX near Houston) that she was either originally from the Houston area or she had a definite connection the the Houston area.

    Hi everyone. I still have not intently read the letter, but I did notice something that we may want to change. Under Princess' vital statistics it states that her body my have been out there since the seventies. I am afraid that if someone knows a girl who went missing in say 1989 who fits the description except for that they may not come forward. The truth is that we don't know how long she was out there. I don't think that statement was made by a forensic specialist but instead possibly a member of LE who simply didn't know how long she was out there for.

    Although, I can't find reliable info to answer certain forensic questions, certain things tell me that she most likely was not out there since the 70's. They have dentals, for example. Remains left out in all weather in a humid area like Houston probably would not have intact teeth for dentals. Also, she still had viable bone marrow which was tested for drugs. Chances are if she were out there since the 70's, that would not be the case.

    We have all heard of cases where DNA and nearly or fully complete remains have been found for people or animals who lived up to thousands of years ago. However, those cases are special. There were either frozen, mummified or fossilized due to the conditions that they remained in for all that time. In the Houston area decomposition would be quick and remains would most likely not be intact for very long. The combination of routine high humidity with high heat would accelerate decomposition.

    I am thinking that instead we might say something like, "Her remains may have been out there for as long as the 1970's, however her time of death was more likely in the late 80's to early 1990."

    This way we cover our bases all around. What does everyone think?

    I am so sorry but I never did find anything more about this story, not in the news paper either

    That is okay, sissy. Thank you for searching! There are several articles in Houston papers, but I was trying to see if there was a TV news report so I could see the video--even though it might take 15 minutes to download it if it works at all.

    I have been unable to access the Texas Equusearch website. It says I do not have permission to view it. Can someone else try and see what happens?

    Hello everyone,
    I only have a few minutes, but I promise I will be more avail. later this week!
    So...WOW!! I never thought the story would be quite this hot! I'm immensely grateful that it is out and in soooo many places. I agree w/ most of you that she sure seems connected to the Houston area, but it doesn't hurt for the story to appear elsewhere. You never know where OTHER ppl. are who may recognize her, be alums, or be able to help in some other way.

    A big THANK YOU!! to all of you are putting in so much time and effort working on the spreadsheets and poring over MP sites. The possibles you have posted are helpful. I will take the time to really look closely at them soon, but for now I can say that Cheatham made me gasp! I see definite facial similarities. Whoever said the hair is off is correct, but that is often the case. Hair can be a tricky part of a facial recon. or reprodux. Oh, and to clear things up, NOOOOO, there WAS NOT any hair at the scene, contrary to what some of the articles are starting to say. I get frustrated at how the media takes liberties w/ what they print. They are stretching some of the facts, at a minimum. RKnowley, I don't blame you for being a little confused!

    more soon,

    Yes, I have already expressed my displeasure, to say the least, at the media outlets who are getting things incorrect. My guess on the Houston Chronicle write-up(s) is that it is the same reporter from the first article and he is pulling some of the old info. from his first article forward, such as the PMI (time of death). Unless there is something he knows that none of the investigators have been told, THERE IS NO FORENSICALLY DETERMINED TOD!! So, I see that one article has been saying the 6 mos. to one year thing again, and another one says up to 2 yrs... aaagghh!What is it that richandfamous says? "Facts, facts, get them straight!"

    I tend to agree with what Lion has been surmising, that it would be closer to the 1990 discovery, rather than further out. Maybe the two years interval IS a good assumption, but that's all that it is. She was out in the open, which means open to the elements, scavenging, etc. And due to the weather conditions in a place like the Houston, coastal area, in my experience, skeletonization can happen quicker than one would think. And we now know that there was no clothing to help protect her. (poor girl!) So that helps speed the process as well. I think it is likely that her death occurred in '88, '89, or early '90, in my experience and opinion, but it is not fact. (CYA! or rather, C my A!)

    I am really hoping that some family members will start coming forward to have their DNA taken, so that comparisons can start being made, and "possibles" ruled out, slowly.

    You guys are awesome in your dedication!

    I'm afraid Miss Munson's teeth are much too beautiful to be Princess Blue's! thank you for posting a "possible", though.

    On that note, can anyone who has more time than I do currently, please contact the "Doe Ntwk." and ask them to update their site?? It is my understanding that they just pull their postings from sites like those from LE or places like the TXMPCH. They have needed to pop back over for months now and see the changes to be sure they are posting proper and current info.,; they still have the Hispanic thing going on...

    TIA TIA TIA

    Credit For Deserving Volunteers

    BTW, YES!!!
    The first online forum the articles about PB are referencing ARE you guys here at WS!! It's time you deserve some credit, even if it doesn't mention WS by name. Then later, in a diff. article, it does mention the SKM site by name, so if ppl. go to that one I'm sure they'll make their way to this one from the links. Great job, everyone! Even though I kow you're not doing it for the credit...

    I feel pretty sure that the investigators keep up with what is being posted on the varying sites.
