    Great work Snuf!! I too have spent hours looking at these UID's and know it is a depressing and tedious task! Thank you for your time and patience and please enjoy a pat on the back from me!
    Prayers and thoughts go to the family also.

    I hope Dawns story makes National Headlines, and it puts the fear of God in the person that murdered her!
    Great sleuthing Snuf!!

    I'll be praying that Dawns killer gets brought to justice, soon!! The perp has gotten away with her murder for almost as long as she lived, sixteen years and seven months!!

    I spoke at length with the San Bernadino Coroner Investigator this afternoon, he has a private citizen researcher who works with him, and she also had made the connection. He is a truly dedicated man, who cares deeply for the unidentifed. He works tirelessly- to bring all the lost, back home. Say a prayer for Dawn and her family tonight. May her spirit be set free and may justice be served.

    Each day when the early morning light begins to shine on the horizon, the rise of the morning sun will always have her name- Dawn.

    RIP Dawn. Now on to finding your killer.

    What do we know about the murder so far?

    If she had made the connection then why wasn't Dawn ID'd sooner? Seems a bit coincidental for them to make that claim to me. I know the end result is what were all after. But you invested alot to ID this victim. You my fellow sleuther, is the one that has my respect and admiration.

    Well to be fair they haven't taken the site down because DNA hasn't confirmed it yet.

    It may be hinky but I think it's fair to say that Snufamonbobball did a great job quickly and with less resources than someone with the full backing of LE and a head start with the information. For that she deserves praise - but we also should be thankful that at least some law enforcement has the decency to take this family and this victim seriously and provide even volunteer resources rather than hiding behind inhumane and impersonal policy.

    I can do nothing but sing the praises of the San Bernadino County Coroner's office. Both the investigator and his researcher are dedicated to finding resolution for the missing and unidentified. I feel lucky to have talked with people as giving and compassionate as they are. Both will do whatever they can to find answers- and without complaint, they will bust their a**es to make it happen.
    Now, the other part of the equation, LA Cold Case Unit- I am still shocked they weren't interested enough to even pick up a piece of paper. I didn't just pull their # out of my rear end- it was the one on the NCMEC poster, why even put the number up if you won't take a report? they didn't even have to do anything, all they had to do was look at a fax and decide I was either a nutjob, or there was something to it. For me that is shameful, and just plain lazy.
    Anyhow, I firmly believe that every person who searches contributes when cases are resolved. We have all spent countless hours searching, and nothing but good can come of dedicated people who never give up.

    Appreciating All.

    Snuf, you did great work on this. If you're not a detective then you should be.

    I read through the threads and what bothered me reading the story unfold is that Dawn's family didn't identify her first. She was found relatively close to home a few days after she ran away. Wouldn't you be calling hospitals and morgues if your family member disappeared without a trace? Why didn't Dawn's family do the same?

    My gut feeling says that they weren't looking because they knew where she was.
