    Can't they trace the metal plate in the femur to a hospital or something? There has to be some way they can be at least 75% sure it is her.

    It seems to me that one metal plate looks much like any other. Unless it had a serial number I think it would be impossible to trace.

    The Colusa County Sheriff's Department called her late last week, informing her that there wasn't enough DNA to extract for an accurate test.
    Snipped from above link.

    This week I read an article where there wasn't enough DNA to be extracted from bones that were found in a grave and there was some question about the identity of the remains in the grave by family members. (a different case)

    They were able to identify the remains by the hair, with a hairmat that had been saved from the woman's family.

    It turned out to be the correct remains in the grave. Although, a few of the family members still disagreed because there was a discrepancy between the confession of the woman's murderer and the condition of the remains.

    I attribute that to the fact when you rely on a confession, you are relying on the word of a known criminal (murderer).

    I trust the science behind it.

    I would encourage the family of this woman and LE to try to find another way to extract DNA for comparison. JMHO.

    We are all one poor choice from being a subject on this forum. Think twice.

    So, here's a little late night rambling on a thread which has not seen some action in a few years....what if Nellie was the Jane Doe in Lorain County Ohio found March 9, 1981? Age would be appropriate (25-37)
    Ht. 5'3
    probable year of death '79-81
    Spine deformities and elbow bone deformity (I believe if I interpreted correctly and could be due to a previous fracture)
    Some limbs were not recovered (what if leg was taken from scene because plate was known to possibly be identified?)
    She left Erie, PA to travel west to California or Arizona....Jane Doe found just about 2 hrs away (Take I-90 to I-480 (interchange which brings you to I-80) and then exit 2 is Lorain Rd and two lefts bring you to corner of Root Rd and Hawke Rd where she was found. Pretty easy to get back to I-80 and head west working your way to other interstates.
    Since no one was really conversing on this thread, I figured I would check with NamUs (since there weren't any ruleouts mentioned) to see if the DNA sample from Jane Doe could be submitted and possibly checked with Nellie's. Maybe this has already been done but I was kinda on my own and alone in this thread!!
