    Found in link above:

    Results of the examination revealed the remains were of a
    female, 30 to 50 years of age, with a predominantly
    Caucasoid genetic ancestry.


    Caucasoid genetic ancestry? Perhaps LE should realize that the use of such bombastic terms may result in a lot of people thinking they are referring to an alien creature.

    Missing Canadian college student

    Bumping case up. Could she be one of the many Jane Does found in the Northeastern US around the late 1970"s?

    Accent: unsolved cases-unexplained deaths

    Jan 26, 2013

    One of the more mysterious disappearances is that of Jane Smith, also a student at Laurentian. In the summer of 1975, Smith, 20, was last seen in her apartment on Charlotte Street just before going to sleep at 2 a.m. A few hours later, at 7:30 a.m., she was nowhere to be found.

    All her personal belongings were left behind. To date, investigating officers haven't been able to rule out the possibility she met an untimely end.

    who saw her in her apt at 2:00am?
    or is it assumed she was in her apartment at that time?

    how did they know only 5.5 hrs later she was missing? 7:30 is early in the morning and so soon after she was supposedly last seen isn't that rather quick to conclude she is missing?

    as to being seen at 2am in her apt can only be a roommate. this person heard, saw nothing?

    Bumping.
    I combed through Canada's unidentified - only two that even came close were

    http://www.missingadults.ca/viewUAca...t=10&CurCase=4
    and
    http://www.missingadults.ca/viewUAca...t=10&CurCase=5

    But both towns were over 6 hours away from Sudbury.
    Neither seem viable.
