    It certainly looks close. Same hair, eyes, weight, location, date, age. And even a scar near the knee - although one says left and the other right.

    I noticed that but I wondered if being under stress whoever gave the information could have gotten it confused. If they pictured it in their mind and was facing her it would be on their left but on her right leg. just odd that everything goes but wrong leg.

    Is there any way of getting a rule out list on this young lady? Wilma Rae Vermaas was my first guess too but given the long period of time with no response from LE I'm guessing that she's been ruled out.

    I'm guessing email to the Namus case manager and maybe they can provide anyone already ruled out.

    I was just taking a close look at this possible match between Wilma Rae Vermaas and LASD Jane Doe #25, and saw something that did not get any mention on this thread.

    http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/...aas_wilma.html
    http://doenetwork.org/cases/587ufca.html

    The Charley Project write-up on WRV indicates:

    both her upper front teeth are false, and one of her lower front teeth is a baby tooth and smaller than the others.
    The DoeNet profile on JD25 includes a link to the UID's dental chart. I saw this when we were looking at the Purple Bells girl in the Alcala thread, but I didn't think of looking at it with respect to WRV.

    http://doenetwork.org/cases/images/587UFCAdentals.jpg

    With respect to the upper front teeth, it appears to match. For JD25's two upper front teeth (#8 and 9), it indicates "Plastic Crowns - No Metal Coping" (Coping is the inside core of a dental crown).

    However, with respect to the lower teeth, there is no indication of a baby tooth, or that one is smaller than the others. It only indicates a 2MM gap between her lower central incisors (#24 and 25), and describes her four lower front teeth as "Normal".

    Could there be an error in either Charley Project's description of WRV's lower teeth, or maybe the coroner overlooked something in the dental charts? --- Maybe --- But if not, this would appear to be a rule-out, despite the tantalizing matching details about the crowns on #8 and #9.

    Could LASD Jane Doe Number 25 be Sallie Margaret Reed? The Sketch of JD #25 has the same facial shape as Sallie Reed, and both have same hair and eye color. Sallie went missing a 02/76, and JD #25 was discovered 4/76.

    I came across this flyer about the unknown lady. I'm not sure if it has any information not posted here other than her cause of death was not able to be determined due to the condition of the body.
