    PA - Wilkinsburg, BlkFem 397UFPA, 18-35, under debris in basement, Jun'99

    http://www.post-gazette.com/pg/09158/975661-455.stm

    Sunday, June 07, 2009

    ...The badly decomposed body of the first, a slight woman identified only as 03-5925, was pulled from the Allegheny River near the Fox Chapel Yacht Club on Oct. 24, 2003. Her remains were wrapped in a blue blanket bound with duct tape. A plastic bag covered her head.

    The mummified remains of another, 00-4395, were discovered Oct. 3, 2000, in an abandoned railroad tunnel in Homestead. A stainless steel crown affixed to one of her teeth resembled those made in Eastern Europe.

    The third, 99-2629, was a homicide victim found June 28, 1999, in the storm cellar of an empty house in Wilkinsburg. She had been strangled...


    ...who they were remains a mystery, even as the county prepares to finally lay them to rest.

    What a shame that they haven't been identified.


    Victim number one:
    www.doenetwork.org/cases/202ufpa.html

    It says her age range is 20-45 but the reconstruction looks to me like she's the older end of the age range rather than 20. I wonder how accurate that is.

    Victim number two:
    http://www.doenetwork.org/cases/143ufpa.html

    If she was a recent immigrant it may be there were not many people to miss her, or they may have thought she returned to her native country.

    It says the local fingerprint records were checked but no results. Does it mean no national databases were consulted?

    I agree Donjeta, it's a shame. I know that many members here donate their time and energy to matching IUD's to Missing Persons that have been reported.

    That's not my forte, although I am interested. I wanted to bring these ladies here in case someone wishes to later work on their identifications.

    Here is her PA missing link: http://pennsylvaniamissing.com/397ufpawilkinsburg.html

    Surprisingly, no rule outs. Wish she had a better recon, though I guess this one isn't bad.
