    Well, they sure do look alike!

    The main things that caught my eye were that Wendy had a 1 inch scar on her shoulder that wasn't mentioned on Jane Doe, but maybe it was missed.

    She also would have gotten the tattoos after disappearing, or her family didn't know about them maybe.

    It could be a match! I wonder if this has already been ruled out due to the similarites and being in the same year.

    Good searching!

    I think you've got something here! It is a possibility that the girl may never have mentioned the tattoos to anyone. In 1987, they weren't as common as today.

    please check your PM's

    Good point MrsG. I know of some teens and young ladies who even today might hide the fact that they have tattoos from family. Back then it was less acceptable for women to get them, and it is possible that she didn't even tell her friends---yet. Of course we don't know for how long she had her tats prior to her disappearance. But, who knows?

    Our dear Jaded will be working and is unable to send out the info and call LE about this. So, I offered to do it for her. I sent an email with everything on it, and I am going to call LE around 9 am CST. I will post any info I receive (a big, "IF"), and of course keep Jaded informed.

    I just spoke with both Lt. Holtzleiter of the Grant County Sheriff's Office and Chief Investigator Brown at the coroners office that handles Englewood, OH. They both previously received my emails and looked it up immediately. But, it was not a match. Apparently, these two were compared via dental records in 1997 and found to have not been a match.

    It was great work on Jaded's part because they really did seem like they were possibly a match.

    Investigator Brown confirmed my theory that we have more missing and UID than we used to. He said that just 2 years ago he had 28 in 1 year. On 2006, he had 62. Geesh, what is up with that? It seems to be happening all over the country.

    She sure looks like the sketches, but the autopsy photo (cringe) does not look like an Asian Philipino female.

    I agree, Sadie. Also, Chief Investigator Brown was very helpful in answering several questions for me this morning. I asked him how accurate are the methods in determining height and weight. He said that although the measurements and weights are most accurate if the deceased is found in good condition shortly after death (Princess Doe from Englewood was only dead for about 14 hours and was in good condition), forensic anthropologists also have fairly accurate methods, even for skeletal remains. however, the new rules state that even if they estimate a height or weight they are now required to offer a broader range.

    The height difference of 4 inches in this case is more of an obstacle than if they had found Princess Doe as skeletal remains because both heights are most likely pretty accurate--unless someone made a typing error--which I asked about. I said I wonder if once in awhile a match isn't made because of a simple typing error. But, in this case, although the two look similar, I don't they are the same person. The facial structures seem too different to me.

    OH-Paula Beverly Davis (28ufoh-WarningMorguePhoto-MATCH??)

    Does anyone know if these two have been compared? And please take a close look at the top lip on the morgue photo-- is there a possible scar that you can see?

    I can't find any list of rule outs anywhere, so I thought I'd put it out there and see what everyone else thinks.


    Much apreciated.

    Those Doenetwork pics look nothing like the coroners pictures. (They very rarely do...)

    I hope you're onto something, I'd submit it if I were you

    I think the morgue photo and those photos of the missing woman resemble one another (moreso than the sketches).

    I agree with Boyz Mum - Vicki looks nothing like the sketches but then neither does the recovered body.

    My slight reservation is that the Doe wore quite a lot of jewelry - but Vicki had skin sensitive to "most metal." However the jewelry is described universally as "silver colored" but not silver - so perhaps there was some metal that did not cause her an allergy and so the matching jewelry could have been chosen specifically for that reason.

    I would add that Vicki went missing about 13 hours from where the Doe was found at a highway on ramp - it'd make sense that a killer might have killed her near where home and simply driven until he could take no more (or until his route was done if a trucker) and then dump the body and disappear.

    Snufamonbobball, I think the similarities between both are more than enough reason to call in the tip. I frankly see nothing physically that is off. All her features are really close. The jewelry thing is the only major thing off, but like another poster stated, there could be a good explanation for it. I say it's a great match!
