    Unidentified White Female

    • The victim was discovered on July 12, 1993 in Three Rocks, Fresno County, California
    • Estimated Date of Death: 2 months prior


    Vital Statistics

    • Estimated age: 17-25 years old
    • Approximate Height and Weight: 5'4; 120-130 lbs.
    • Distinguishing Characteristics: Shoulder-length, medium-brown hair.
    • Clothing: She was wearing a tan-colored T-shirt with "California" and three rats on the front and back of the shirt; a white long-sleeved shirt with navy pinstripes; blue cutoff shorts; and two pieces of jewelry, including a silver cross. There was a ring on her right ring finger. Mounted on it was a picture of a boy, about 3 or 4 years old. He appears in a tiny black-and-white photograph with light-colored hair, wearing what appears to be a dark polo-type shirt. There's no clue where the picture was taken, and police have no idea who the boy might be.
    • Dentals: A gold cap on an upper right molar.
    • Fingerprints: Available
      Case History
      The victim was located when an anonymous caller, likely a passing motorist, telephoned the Sheriff's Department and reported seeing a hand protruding from dirt near Three Rocks, a tiny farming community about 50 miles southwest of Fresno.
      The badly decomposed body of a woman was unearthed. It could have been there more than two months.
      A fingerprint check with the state's Department of Justice computer records, which also includes records from other western states, came up empty.
      Missing-persons cases from throughout the state were checked with no matches. With the body so close to I-5, investigators assumed the woman could have been from almost anywhere.
      Although the cause of death has not been determined, Fresno County sheriff's detectives are handling the case as a homicide.

    3. MA - Quincy, skeletal remains with old collarbone fractures that had healed, Mar '91 - - NamUs rep - Lori Bruski - Lori.Bruski@unthsc.edu

    On March 21, 1991, Bobby Lingoes, a civilian dispatcher at the Quincy Police Department, was called upstairs to the detective bureau.

    "Bobby, come see this," said a lieutenant, handing him a report about newly discovered skeletal remains belonging to a 5-foot-8 white male who died about 1988.

    Earlier that day, a Quincy man came to police with two bones wrapped in a quilt. He had found them while jogging deep in the woods off Quarry Street. There, under a pile of plywood, police discovered more skeletal remains, a plaid shirt, and a pair of socks buried in a 3-foot grave.

    Skeleton Doesn't Match Missing Italian Man


    A comparison of dental records has ruled out the possibility that skeletal remains found 11 years ago in Qunicy, MA are that of a missing Italian Man.
    Robert Lingoes, a member of the Doe Network and civilian employee of the Quincy police department, had spent years trying to identify the unidentified murder victim. It was when the Doe Network's website featured Josef Unterhuber, he thought he had found his match. Unterhuber, a 32 year old man missing from Italy, matched the description of the unidentified man completely.
    In addition to matching in age, height, weight, and physical appearance, both Unterhuber and the victim had old collarbone fractures that had healed. This was confirmed by Unterhuber's brother, living in Italy. Also, in 1989, Josef Unterhuber's passport was found on a bench in Boston's South End.
    Unterhuber's family was contacted about the possible match, and a DNA analysis was attempted. Unfortunately, the skeleton was too old, and they were unable to obtain a good sample from the remains. Instead, authorities compared dental records and a picture of Unterhuber smiling with a photo of the skull. This led to the conclusion that the skeleton was in fact not that of the missing Unterhuber.
    Both the identity of the skeleton, and the whereabouts of Josef Unterhuber remain a mystery.

    No one has been contacted yet; we're not ready for that. It's a process as I'm showing in my last reply. You had their thread and Doe links; I grabbed the LE web sites and NamUs case workers. Next have to read to see who their LE contact is, then find their email addy on the LE web sites I posted. See below.

    Edit - Need to read the article for #3 to make sure of the contact info. I didn't have time yesterday. Just googled for Quincy Police Department

    Also needs to go in NamUs - ITALY - Josef Unterhuber, 32, Bolzano, 11 Jan 1988. I'm in NJ, know nothing about Boston. Would need to find out what LE would be in charge of his case

    On Feb. 12, 1992, four years after Unterhuber left Bolzano, the Italian Consulate in Boston contacted the family and Bolzano police to tell them that Unterhuber's passport had been found on a bench at The Homeless Older Adults Center at Holy Trinity Churchin Boston's South End.

    Unterhuber had come to the Boston area reeling in pain from a lost love affair. He was last seen on Jan. 11, 1988, just weeks after his 23-year-old girlfriend in Italy had turned down his marriage proposal. Just before his disappearance, Unterhuber, then 32, traveled to Austria to ask his girlfriend to marry him, she said. After her refusal, he returned home on Jan. 11 and asked for two weeks of vacation from work. That night, about 6: 30 p.m., he called his mother from the train station to tell her he was going on a vacation. It was the last time he talked to her.

    "I just had a bad feeling," she said.
    The family called police and they contacted his friends. His mother even remembers going to his apartment with the ex-girlfriend, who is now a doctor in Austria.
    Georg Unterhuber described his younger brother as a dashing and brilliant man who was happy and doing well for himself. He had a good job as a translator at the Languages Office of the Independent Province of Bolzano. He spoke Spanish, English, German, and Italian. He'd just bought a white Volkswagen and lived by himself in a large apartment in a residential area. His home was filled with up to 300 books.
    Georg said his brother was a bit of a ladies' man, which is why he was so surprised to hear that his disappearance was prompted by his loss of a girlfriend.
    His brother had one real love, and Georg believes that is what drew him to Boston: American culture, especially that involving Native Americans. Josef had studied in New Orleans for three months and always dreamed of returning to America. His favorite writer was Karl May, a German writer who died in 1912, never having visited America but writing dozens of best-sellers in Europe about the American West.
    Georg believes his brother got so caught up in his American fascination that he decided to travel to America on a lark.

    I've asked WS member Carbuff for help. I believe she has experience with Boston. Would need to find out what LE would be in charge of his case and if they have an MP report. He can be entered in NamUs without an MP report but the case will not go online so that the public can see it.

    I submitted Brook Peck, http://www.websleuths.com/forums/sho...ght=Brook+Peck. It took about five days, but I also emailed the case worker to ask how long it would be before her case would show up, so maybe I pressured them a little.

    Hello... I am new here, first day. I have been active on NamUs for several years, collecting missing information and setting up cases. Last month, after reading that Alaska had the highest missing rate in the nation I decided to review and load every case I could find. So far I have added 16 but I know there are many more. NamUs wants all missing, although I tend to wait until a period of time has passed, the older cases are helpful in trying to match unidentified. I have have dozens of agencies that have unidentified's that are not loaded on NamUs, but only law enforcement can update that data base. I don't know what we can do about that, I'm sure they must be aware of NamUs, they just don't submit their unidentified cases. Any tips you can pass on for this website would be appreciated, I am not sure how to get around. Thanks, Nancy

    You can post the Does here, at least there would be record. Are they all Alaska? One of my missing person's cases is there from 1995, she hasn't been found but is most likely deceased. Jessica Hager is the NamUs RSA, they can then be given to her to see if she can get LE or ME to cooperate with adding them
