    Yes, I did hear some time ago about another match. His advice was to look in local data bases around the Midwest, he didn't feel she was in a national base.
    They have done a lot of searching for this girl, but haven't found her. They have made sure that all LE agencies know about her.

    Is there a rule out list on this UID? It sure would help to have one. I looked on Namus and they don't have hardly any info on her and her eyes are listed as brown. I thought they were green/hazel.

    I bet some pimp did this to her. I have been seeing alot of this lately on tv. They do this to teach the others a lesson.

    I really think this girl looks just like the Jane Doe. Ears, eyes, nose, mouth, even a slight assymetry in the eyes. Her drug use could have led her into prostitution which would make circumstances and timing work. She could have grown a few inches in the time that she was missing.

    That actually seems like the closest visual match i have seen, and the statistics could work

    Please also remember that sometimes the information in the cases you have looked at may be incorrect. It's not because they don't know, but details could be generalizations (height and weight are good examples) for either a missing person or a JD. Do you have some besides Nyleen that you have considered the closest? I agree it looks very similar.

    Last night, I was combing through the Charley archive for possibles to Crystal Rae (Racine JD), and I came across Aundria Michelle Bowman.

    http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/...n_aundria.html

    [/URL]


    I went through this thread and found that she was already discussed as a possible for Crystal Rae. Salem indicated that she was going to call it in, but Salem made no mention of her after that.

    This looks like a very strong possible to me. There was a 10-year difference between DLC and Crystal Rae's death, but Aundria was a run-away at 14 years old, and circumstances are entirely consistent with someone being a street girl for 10 years. CR appears based on her dental condition to have been on the street for a significant amount of time.

    Now here's the kicker - Looking at CR's postmortem, it appears that her open eyes were photo-shopped into the postmortem photo.

    This is probably just the photoshopper's estimate of what her eyes looked like.




    So, I decided to do a little photoshopping of my own. I replaced her eyes with Aundria's eyes, and replaced her hair with Aundria's hair and put Aundria's shirt on her and cleaned up the background. Nothing else. I didn't touch any other portions of her face.

    What did I end up with? - With only Aundria's hair and eyes, Crystal Rae becomes --- Aundria Bowman.

    ____

    I sent a PM to Salem to find out if Salem had called it in. Salem responded that he/she did call-in on Aundria's side. Now I just need to find out what ever became of Salem's call-in.


    Here is the comparison using the superimposed eyes from the original postmortem photo.

    I have come across Aundria's picture many times and always felt that I'd seen a UID that looked like her but couldn't remember where. Maybe this was her.

    Wow, I always wondered why that particular post-mortem photo gave me the willies -- usually they don't bother me in the least. But it's because the eyes don't fit.

    I just spoke with Tom Knaus of the Racine County Sheriff's Office.

    He says that he recently took over this case from a previous investigator, and has received literally hundreds of tips on this case. As we were talking, he was browsing through the list, and didn't find Aundria's name, so he doesn't think that she has been submitted before.

    (That makes me wonder what became of Salem's tip to the people in charge of Aundria's MP case).

    He told me that this one might be difficult to verify because due to Aundria's circumstances of having come from a youth home, she might not have family members from whom to obtain a DNA reference sample. But he will call around and see what he can find on Aundria.

    I asked what he thought about the resemblance. He replied that sometimes he receives tips where he knows immediately that it's not her, but he does his best to be open minded and not make initial judgments one way or the other. He conceded however, that he does see a pretty good resemblance in this case.

    He took my number, and he gave me his desk phone number (which is different from the one listed), and said that if I don't hear from him, to follow-up in a month or two.

    I am so relieved someone submitted this girl again. I submitted it back last summer to the Child Protection Education of America Organization. However, I think the were in the process of dissolving their organization at that time and when I did not hear from them, I checked back and it was no longer operating.

    I recall including in my notes I was trying to obtain other post mortem photos because I thought there were good identifiers on the face of the deceased. This is just opinion, but I feel the more the faces are photo shopped, the greater the chance for loosing possible identifiers. I have used various methods of enhancement on the "original" photo (or as close as we have) and see what I believe to be small moles or markings that are not temporary blemishes. For instance, on the morgue Doe photo you can magnify the image and see on HER LEFT cheek (our right as we view) under and near the corner of her eye what appears to be a mole or raised area. Then on the same side of her face near the bridge of the nose there are tow more spots, one on top of the other with the same appearance. Nothing significant unless these are indeed permanent markers.

    Now, check Aundria's photo and the same 'blemishes' are there in the same spot, which indicates to me these are moles or other permanent blemishes. Also note Aundria's left side of the lower lip (better seen enhanced and enlarged), it is slightly misshapen which also matches the Doe.

    I wonder about a lot of submitted cases. Actually, I think little thought or care is put into these cases. For LE, they are is the time factor and agencies are not paying overtime. For non-profit organizations, they are money making organizations. Few care. Some do and we owe them a debt of gratitude. Then again, to be fair, they are overloaded, just as many of us are who are looking at hundreds of case files. Some do get lost in the shuffle. I am looking forward to the response on this one. Stay on them for an answer! :-)

    Sorry to be so 'preachy' on which side of the face is left or right, but honestly, I have cases where the scars, marks and tattoos are listed on the wrong side of the body. So, I don't take anything for granted.

    By superimposing her own hair over the UID's hair and superimposing her eyes over the UID's "fake" eyes, and removing all other irrelevant differences between photos, it enables one to focus on the important points of comparison.

    In this case, her narrow pointy chin, distinctive nose (at the bridge, the tip, and the nostrils), protruding teeth, and cheekbones are spot-on IMO.

    The only place I see a difference is her eyebrows, but her eyebrows are similar in shape. They are only different in the density and darkness of the hair. I don't know how much of that difference is a normal effect of 10 years in aging and terrible living conditions.

    Me too!!!! I can't wait for a response. Hopefully it doesnt take 1 or two months, If so it would be nice if they had an unedited photo of this jane doe to help find other possible matches. I know you shouldn't go strictly on photo's but I believe it helps!
    Besides that other girl from overseas ( sorry bad memory) I think Aundria is one of the best potential matches for this jane doe.

    Although I must admit the thought of this being Aundria in paticular is very sad! I know they were thinking this jane doe had weeks of abuse leading up to her death, but what if it was really years?!?!?! I sure hope they catch whoever did this once she's identified.

    Anyways, I'm glad to see everyone here, and seeing this case get some much needed attention! This poor girl definately deserves her name back and justice!

    Lil'E, did you ever hear anything about your possible match? I would love to see this case resolved. It has always haunted me, as both bodies were found in the area where I live. (One of them just a couple of miles away...)

    These are very similar Carl and your overlay is excellent. The only thing I am pointing out is that in cases where there is a recognizable face, those putting it out for comparison, including LE agencies and morgues, should not retouch the skin other than cleaning up the obvious. So many agencies are not mentioning minute identifiers such as moles or permanent blemises, which can be seen in the original photo here and they match those of the missing person, unless this is simply a very rare coincidence.

    Hi kaylenbabysims,
    The photo is essential. It is a great place to start. Then searching for more photos for comparison. Jump right in and look for cases to post here. Everyone here is very helpful.
