    CA- Desert Hot Springs - WhtFem 551UFCA, 40-55, Prescription Glasses, Feb'97

    what do you guys think? here is the info on this UID:

    http://doenetwork.org/cases/551ufca.html

    Unidentified White Female

    The victim was discovered on February 10, 1997 in Desert Hot Springs, Riverside County, California
    Vital Statistics
    Estimated age: 40-55 years old
    Approximate Height and Weight: 5'6"; 145 lbs.
    Distinguishing Characteristics: Brown, shoulder length hair with gray mixed in; hazel eyes. She had no scars or tattoos.
    Dentals: Available. She had extensive dental work including crowns and root canal work.
    Clothing: A light colored striped shirt, blue denims pants, brown shoes and a tan/yellowish windbreaker jacket. She was wearing large frame prescription bi-focal eyeglasses. She was wearing a wedding ring.

    Case History
    The victim was located in the hills behind the Desert Crossing shopping center in Desert Hot Springs, CA.
    She was fully dressed with superficial contusions to her legs and head. She may have been disoriented. She was found with her personal property including medication and money. All identification was intentionally missing or had been obliterated. Extensive local searches have all had negative results.

    I have a possible match with Anne Ferguson of Tennessee (with matches to UID highlighted). do you think she could have wandered as far as CA?

    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!

    Here's the side by side pic

    FC; It's a possibility that she got that far, if she was picked up by a trucker or someone going that way! Consider all possibilities, that's my motto....
    The missing ladys photo is not very good quality, but I searched and couldn't find a better one. I cleaned it up as much as I could....

    Despite the similarities, I don't think Anne Blanche Ferguson/Frady is this Jane Doe.

    I found a myspace devoted to Anne and it says she has scars (appendectomy & hysterectomy) and Jane Doe has no scars.

    Here's the myspace page;

    Thanks Jessunlil for the link! I visited there and copied the photo of Mrs. Ferguson-Frady, much better quality...
    FC; Did you submit this? They're very close, sometimes LE doesn't list all the scars (not sure why, but it may keep folks from submitting anyone and evryone with those same scars) as we have found with 1987 TN Jane. If you haven't submitted, you might call and ask if Jane did have any scars like Mrs. Ferguson-Frady!!!

    Jane Doe Namus link and exclusions. Anne Ferguson is not among them.
    https://identifyus.org/cases/7026

    Dorothy Chiappuzzo 1938 California
    Cynthia Coover 1956 California
    Tina D'Ambrosio 1961 Arizona
    Carmen Hetrick 1956 Colorado
    Sandra Jacobson 1959 North Dakota
    Gloria King 1954 New Mexico
    Wendy Ratte 1953 California
    Patricia Schmidt 1964 Virginia

    DNA sample for the Doe is not available but her dentals are quite distinctive.
    I didn't find a Namus page for Anne Ferguson.

    Jane Doe was wearing a wedding ring. Was AF married?

    I assume so. Her DN page has what appears to be a maiden name of Frady listed.

    Stephanie Fladgard went missing October 18, 1996. There aren't many details about her disappearance, but she is the right age, weight, height and the hair and glasses match. The date is acceptable depending on why she went missing...which we don't know.

    I was looking to see if she already had a thread here and was just about to add one, so I am really glad that I checked again. I think part of my confusion was that the Riverside County Coroner and NamUs both list her as being found in Palm Desert, CA and the Doe Network says she was found in Desert Hot Springs, CA.

    http://www.riversidesheriff.org/coro.../1997-0827.asp

    https://identifyus.org/en/cases/7026

    I checked at Target.com and there isn't a Target store in Desert Hot Springs but there is one in Palm Desert located at 72549 Highway 111, Palm Desert, CA, 92260-3306. Coincidentally, the Desert Crossing Shopping Center is also located at the intersection of Fred Waring Dr. and Highway 111, Palm Desert, CA 92260. http://www.shopdesertcrossing.com/
    The circumstances of the discovery of this lady's body (on NamUs) are interesting and I wanted to add them --

    This woman was found by a construction crew in hills behind the shopping center. She had some personal property with but no identification. She some greeting cards but the addressee and signature were torn out.

    She appeared to have been dead about one day and may have been living in that area for a few days. She had expensive dental work. and was wearing a wedding ring.
    NamUs also says that besides the cards, there were bus passes found with her body.

    Recently, I was looking at the people who had escaped or walked away from the Nevada Department of Corrections (with a different unidentified person in mind) and noticed Margaret A. Barrett (this is what prompted me to see if this UID had a thread) --

    http://www.doc.nv.gov/?q=node/181

    There are a lot of things that are questionable about this. I tried to find about more information about Ms. Barrett and her 1986 escape/walk away and was unable to (such as what was she in prison for, more about her vital statistics, and was she the sort of person who would have dental work that included as much gold as the UID). Would her fingerprints have been in CODIS from that far back? The fingerprints shown on the Riverside website look sort of damaged (IMO).
