    Unidentified White Female (or white/black)

    * Discovered on March 19, 1999 in Middleburg, Clay County, Florida.
    * Cause of death was homicide.
    * The victim may have been deceased from two to ten years prior to discovery.
    * State of Remains: Partial skeletal remains

    Vital Statistics

    * Estimated age: 30 - 40 years old
    * Approximate Height and Weight: Average height and weight.
    * Distinguishing Characteristics: White or white/black admixture. Bones recovered at the scene showed signs of arthritic lipping, indicating that the victim may have suffered from back problems. Also, there is a well-healed break in the left nasal region.
    * Dentals: Porcelain over metal crown on right upper front tooth. Occlusal amalgum filling in first lower left molar.

    Case History
    On March 19, 1999 in Middleburg, Clay County, Florida, a county worker found the partial skeletal remains of an adult subject in a ravine just north of a county burrow pit at the dead end of Masters Road. The pit is approximately one mile south of County Road 218 West. Only a skull and 39 additional bones were located. The skull has two bullet holes in it indicating that the decedent was the victim of a homicide. Originally, the remains were thought to be those of an adult white male, however, later D.N.A. testing revealed that the remains were those of an adult white or white/black admixture female.

    * Age at Time of Disappearance: 32 years old
    * Height and Weight at Time of Disappearance: 5'5" (165 cm.); 130 lbs. (59 kg.)

    # Vehicle: 1990 GMC short bed pickup truck with Oklahoma license plates CEZ-029. The truck's Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) is 1GTDC14Z7LZ537603.

    Circumstances of Disappearance
    Elmore was last seen in Guthrie, Oklahoma on August 5, 1990.
    She was driving a 1990 GMC short bed pickup truck with Oklahoma license plates CEZ-029 at the time of her disappearance.

    ****************************
    1. The photo of Diane looks a lot like the sketch of Jane Doe. It does not look like the reconstruction.
    2. Diane went missing in 1990, Jane Doe is estimated to have died between 1989-1997. This is a match.
    3. Diane was 32 in 1990, Jane Doe is estimated to be 30-40. This is a match.
    4. Diane had back problems and had back surgury. Jane Doe had back problems.
    5. Diane is listed as having a chipped upper front tooth. Jane Doe has a crowned front tooth. Is it possible that it is Diane and she had the chip fixed?
    6. Diane went missing in Oklahoma. Her truck is/was missing too. Is it possible she drove to Florida? Google estimates the distance as 1300 miles, which would take 24hrs to drive.

    I decided to email the Clay County Sherrif's Office (the LE that is investigating the Jane Doe), with this possible match. They provided an email address so it made contacting them easy.

    FL- Clay County Jane Doe 277UFFL 1999 - Rose Bud Kelly

    I was looking through for matches and I came across this-

    http://www.nampn.org/cases/longway_tamala.html

    http://www.doenetwork.org/cases/277uffl.html

    I thought it looked decent enough but I wanted to see more info on Tamala. I went to Charley Project to look and it says she disappeared in 2003. Since NAMPN says 1997 and Charley Project says 2003 which one should I go by??

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

    Any thoughts?

    Hi!!!

    Call Orlando PD and let them know that Tamala has two missing dates. Usually when I see that I google the person and see if I can find any media that discusses the case. I did not find anything, but I am not a great sleuther...

    You might want to rename this thread with info on the UID so more folks can post possible matches with you...

    Was it just a head that was found? There were bullet holes in the skull and some pretty specific dentals...

    Seems like it could be a good match: Tamal does look a lot like the reconstruction, especially given how little information there was to go on, the timeline makes sense and the location is fairly reasonable if you wanted to get rid of someone and hide the evidence while being based out of Orlando, but to play Devil's advocate:

    Tamala was pretty short at 5'0" and the UID was described as "average" which I would put at 5'4" or maybe slightly more. I suppose it just implies that the bones they had were neither particularly large nor small and there was probably no indication of weight.

    Tamala's teeth are described as "bad" but the dentals of the Doe, while far from perfect, don't stand out that much.

    Tamala was quite pale but the Doe is described as a possible white/black admixture. Again it's quite vague but it seems more likely that the Doe would have been quite dark in life although probably "white" in terms of appearance. She does have brown eyes though.

    Tamala looks older than 37 in the picture (which she would have had to be at time of death, if she is Doe) although a hard life can do that to you.

    I received a reply from the contact on the Doe Network stating that this doe is listed as admixture but she is more than likely African American. That makes Tamala an easy rule out....

    Also- believe- I don't know how to change the thread name - any instruction on how I do that? Thanks!!

    There is no notation as to the color of hair or whether or not the doe might have had children, so I am wondering if it was just a head that was found. The well healed fracture of the nose and the caps on her teeth might really help in IDing her...

    An unidentified female located in Florida (277UFFL)

    I'm glad she has her name back and those who loved her have some answers.

    God Grant me the serenity to accept those things which I cannot change, the strength to change those things which I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.

    There comes a point in your life when you realize who matters, who never did, who won't anymore, and who always will. So don't worry about people from your past; there's a reason why they didn't make it to your future.
