Jane Doe #02-79 was found dead in a grape vinyard in Rancho Cucamonga. She was nude, and is believed to be in her mid teens to mid twenties. She stood 5'2" tall and weighed approximately 105 lbs. Her hair is light brown, approximately shoulder length. Identity may be established with fingerprints (attached), dental X-rays (see attached) and DNA (body exhumed for DNA 01/30/09). Possible comparison with "smiling photographs" (showing teeth - see attached).
*GRAPHIC PHOTOS AT NAMUS SITE*
From Doe Network:
* Estimated age: 15-30 years old
* Approximate Height and Weight: 5'2"; 105 lbs.
* Distinguishing Characteristics: Light brown, shoulder length hair; brown eyes.
* Clothing: Green socks; brown leather, "Lower Quarter Earth” shoes.
* Dentals: Available. Slight overbite. 2 front, upper teeth overlap slightly.
* Fingerprints: Available.

Here's two young women missing around that time.
Paulette Susan Jasper
Kimberly Rae Doss
Missing in 1978:
Wanda Lee Ann Priddy
Peggy Joyce Jones Mandeville
I see a real resemblance between the UID and Paulette Jaster. Look at the noses (quite slender with a bulbous tip). They eyebrows are different but Paulette seems to have changed the way she styled them in her own photos. The timeline is very good, too.
Cons with Paulette are that she was believed alive a year after her disappearance, PJ is very slightly too tall and slightly too heavy (although a loss of 10lbs after a month on the road seems about right), and Paulette appears to have very good teeth from the low resolution photos we have.
I am thinking that Wanda Priddy has a strong resemblance to the UID. Same height, weight, and age range. Same hair and eye color. Both wearing brown shoes. The close up pictures look very similar to me! But I am a newbie...so I could be missing something!
Even the dentals could be similar...both described front teeth as overlapping/turned inward.

Newbie to WS doesn't mean your a newbie to life...lol...Welcome! They do look similar. The UID's DNA is being processed, will have to check about to see if the Priddy family has theirs on file.
Vitals according to Doe Network:
# Vital Statistics Date Of Birth: January 21, 1958
# Age at Time of Disappearance: 20 years old
# Height and Weight at Time of Disappearance: 5'4; 90 pounds
# Distinguishing Characteristics: White female. Brown hair; brown eyes.
# Marks, Scars: She has scars on the chin, above one eye, and on top of the head.
# Clothing: She was last seen wearing a multi-colored halter top, blue jeans, and brown shoes.
# AKA: Wanda Lee Ann Lundin, Wanda Lee Ann Miller
# Dentals: Two front teeth turn in towards each other.
# DNA: Available in CODIS
Another thing that I noticed on the UID is that her nose is very straight..almost has a bump to it, if you look at the side view of the post mortem photo. Makes me wish there was a side view of Priddy.
The UID's DNA was obtained on Jan. 30, 2009 and "Samples submitted - tests not complete" per NamUs. Would anyone know how long DNA testing takes once submitted?
I would not be at all surprised if this UID is a victim of the 1979 murder spree of Bittaker & Norris:
Likely she was from Coastal CA somewhere between Santa Monica and Redondo Beach, or somwhere along the Pacific Coast Hwy.
I choose to walk to path less travelled, and that has made all the difference
I'm curious how the UID died - was she murdered? I didn't see anything on either site that says how - it does call her a "victim" on DOE.
I'm noticing how small her mouth looks. Obviously, smiling it might look entirely different and in the tooth closeup it looks less small but its something very noticeable about the UID.

Hey guys this looks EXACTLY like Rose Cole!

this one doesn't make me go "WOW" what a resemblance, but i do like the circumstances - the age is ok, the height is ok, the weight is lower but there were a couple of months in between to lose weight:
-Beth In Alaska
i like the looks of dunn - nose and mouth are similar but shes a much bigger woman:
-Beth In Alaska
if only louise davis ( http://charleyproject.org/cases/d/davis_louise.html ) hadn't disappeared three weeks AFTER the uid was found, because they look similar.

UID was also posted on NCMEC. Have found no cause of death information as yet. The side view photo shows bruising to shoulder area. Very sad....
On June 7, 1979, the body of a white female was found in a grape vineyard in Rancho Cucamonga, CA. The decedent was estimated to have been in her mid teens to mid twenties, and she is believed to have died the day before she was found.
CYNTHIA ROBIN GOODING
Can see her teeth a little better in smiling photo. Doesn't look like they overlap.

nice Capoly. I think I like Cole the best of the three.
-Beth In Alaska
Lets separate her than. Will see if a cut of her teeth can be enlarged.
Middle photo (black & white) is Cole. Both sides are UID. In first photo it looks like there is quite a bit of swelling around her mouth.
It's the best can do re photos, not large/clear enough to make out for me.

Wow! You guys are good (and fast)!
I think she looks like Cole and Priddy. I thought Priddy first, until I saw Cole, and now I can't decide.
Top photo: Priddy
Bottom photo: Cole
I can see a resemblance with Gooding, but I can't see from the picture if the noses match. The Doe has kind of a sloopy long nose; Gooding's looks long, but I can't tell if it sloops at the end from the angle of the photo.
I'm sorry...my ability to compare and describe seems to be severely lacking!
I am still thinking Priddy....because of the year and resemblance. There are so many similarities!
To answer your question about DNA a few posts back, it can take months. It depends on the lab, the folks involved in having the testing done and who knows what else. It takes a long, long time sometimes. Because they exhumed to get the DNA, maybe that means someone is pushing and it won't take so long?
