    I wonder if they ever tried to contact all dentists living at that time in the state to see if they had any female patients who never showed up for that root canal. A lot of work I know, but I wonder if they ever did that.

    The girl, identified as Melody Eugene Cutlip in 1984

    Body identified
    . after two years
    FLAGSTAFF. Ariz. (AP) —
    After a sheriffs deputy spent 1.000
    hours on spare-time sleuthing,
    authorities finally know the name
    of a 16-year-old girl whose body
    was found under a tree on Valentine's
    Day 1982. '
    Now they hope to learn who beat
    the Florida runaway to death.
    "We need to establish who she'
    was with and where," Coconino
    County Sheriff Joe Richards said
    Friday.
    The girl, identified as Melody
    Eugene Cutlip, was believed to
    have been in the company of truckers
    at a truck stop at Ash Fork,
    about 50 miles west of Flagstaff on
    I-*). Richards said. "She was probably
    killed in the truck and
    dumped in the area where she was
    found," off Interstate 10, he said
    There was no identification with
    the body and no name for the
    marker when she was buried as an
    indigent.
    But Sheriffs Lt. Jack J jdd'spent
    more than 1,000 hours of his spare
    time trying to identify the girl.
    sending out more than 1.650 teletype
    messages to other law-enforcement
    agencies.
    Judd worked with a Flagstaff
    dentist in comparing dental information
    on missing girls, and he
    persuaded the owner of the truck
    stop to put up fliers and query
    truckers who stopped.
    Positive identification ended up
    being made through a New Mexico
    forensic odontologist'i comparison
    of the victim's teeth..

    Dr. Homer Campbell
    Board Certified Forensic Odontologist
    Office of the Medical Investigator, New Mexico
    bio: http://omi.unm.edu/bios.html


    In one case, Dr. Campbell claimed to identify to a medical certainty the body of Melody Cutlip; the real Melody Cutlip was later found alive and well in Florida.
    Dr. Campbell has also testified beyond the limits of acceptable science in his field, stating in court that bite marks matched to a reasonable degree of medical or dental certainty.
    Bio: Dr. Campell is an active member of the American Academy of Forensic Sciences and also a past president.

    I'm confused. Did they actually identify her or make a mistake? Why is the Doe still on Doe Network?

    Hi there. Thanks for posting this. If she is truly not identified, I don't understand why they could not try to contact dentists in the state (not that she's necessarily from AZ). It is also interesting that she was wearing designer jeans. Perhaps she was from a well-to-do family?

    You completely right... Not many people will go around in life with Tooth #19 (lower left molar)had been drilled in preparation for a root canal approximately one week prior to death.

    Somewhere in some office is dental information that would slove this case... Kind of looked to me LE would put that infromation in some Dental Trade papers or other outlet's that attract that type of professsion..

    It still might not be too late, That would make a wonderfull mystery short read story...

    Do your group have anybody in that profession???

    I matched her with Cheryl Lynn Hall. To me it looks so obvious as to make me think she had to have already been ruled out. what do you guys think?
    not much is known about Cheryl's disappearance other than what is on charley project - I googled her and didn't find anything.

    (I will post pics side by side once I can figure out the code for posting images!)
    Some people do crossword puzzles or Soduko in their spare time...I look at skeletal reconstructions and work on UID puzzles. I swear I'm not this morbid in person!

    Help Fred Murray find his daughter and bring her home. He should not be walking those woods alone!

    Our UID is not Melody Cutlip.

    Melody is not our UID. She did sadly die in 1998 in a car accident in Louisiana at the young age of 32. Here is a copy of the obituary.

    007227 Cutlip - Melody Eugenia Cutlip, A Customer Service Representative For Budget Rent-A-Car, Died Friday Of Injuries Suffered In A Traffic Accident In Kenner. She Was 32. Ms. Cutlip Was Born In Tampa, Fla., And Lived In Jefferson Parish For The Past 10 Years. Survivors Include Her FiancÚ, Harold Buras;Her Mother, Edith Freeman Of Floral City, Fla.; Two Brothers, Thomas And Joseph Freeman, Both Of Floral City; And Four Sisters, Carla Worrell And Christiana, Deborah And Martha Freeman, All Of Floral City. A Graveside Service Will Be Held Friday At 1:30 P.M. At Restlawn Park On U.S. 90 In Avondale. Professional Funeral Services Is In Charge Of Arrangements. 09-17-1998 Times Picayune

    Notice the spelling of her middle name. it's Eugenia, and she was born in Tampa FL and was of the right age to be the woman considered our UID. I am also including the link where I found it.

    Looks like a good match by appearances.

    I don't mind doing the side by side photos, especially when they look so close! I hope you have already notified both Investigators on this one! Also, it's pretty easy to "upload" your photos, you just gotta scroll down to additional options and click on manage attachments, then browse and upload your photos from your files, but be sure to click on the submit reply under additional options, when you do!! It had me a bit crazy when I first started trying to post an image!!
