    The white rectangular object looks a bit like an OSOM card pregnancy test, although I'm not sure if they were available in 1991 or how to explain what appears to be a battery cover on the back, which a pregnancy test would not have, of course:

    You'd think, however, that would be mentioned in the report for this UID if she'd left out a positive pregnancy test before committing suicide. The presence of several different types of beer bottles suggests a possible BYOB ("bring your own beer") party in the room.

    She wanted to have fun before she died? That's what I'm thinking.
    But wouldn't anyone be seen or heard coming and leaving?

    What do you guys think about Amanda Fravel or Julia Salucka possibly being this JJD??

    Amanda is so beautiful, I wonder if she was human trafficked?

    Julia has a tattoo, so unless she had it removed, I'd say not her. Amanda looks a bit like the sketch and the UID in the photo (with the man; posted up thread).

    Bumping up for Sleuthers to add thoughts -

    Seems like there is enough info that this UID should be identifiable...

    I agree. She should be identifiable. Here's a post about the case from a Facebook page. I thought this snippet about the man who rented the room was interesting, if true:



    Cold Cases The Albuquerque Police Department Cold Case Unit is seeking your help in identifying the victim of an apparent suicide.

    On June 6, 1991, the remains of an unknown female were found hanging from a shower spout in room 255 of the Super 8 Motel, located at 2500 University Boulevard NE in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

    The medical examiner ruled her death a suicide.

    The room had been rented by an individual named Eduardo Colin. Detectives eventually located Mr. Colin. Unfortunately, he had died of natural causes several years earlier. His ex-wife, along with another relative, were interviewed. Neither person knew the victim.

    The victim is believed to be between 25 and 35 years old. She is either White or Hispanic. She is 5'7" tall and weighed 140 pounds. Her eyes are described as hazel or gray in color. She has curly, sandy blond hair. Her hair has also been described as reddish in color.

    The victim was wearing a white, pink, and yellow colored "Trends" brand tank top. She was also wearing white denim "Guess" jeans, size 31. Her panties are described as black, green, purple, and pink in color, size M/6.

    Several items were found in the motel room. These items include a blue wallet, blue purse, jewelry, and a suitcase containing woman's clothing. A small photograph of the victim and an unknown male was also found in the room. Photographs of these items are available for viewing at the Cold Case Photo Gallery.

    Anyone with information about this crime is asked to call Detective Rich Lewis at (505) 924-6095.

    Thanks you for that facebook link , five!

    I find it odd that they state "white or Hispanic" and give hair color as sandy blond or strawberry blond...that hair color does not seem to go with the Hispanic possibility.

    Maybe I should try to give the detective a call to see if I can find out any more info....

    I agree. Not impossible, but unlikely. I wish there was a pic of the contents of her suitcase.

    It's hard to believe that this case hasn't been solved.

    -What connection did this Eduardo Colin have to the woman? Who was he? It is hard to imagine someone renting a hotel room, and then magically disappearing, leaving a security guard to discover an unknown woman deceased inside, days later.

    -It would seem by the number of beer bottles, etc, that the UID was not alone for at least some of the time. The fact that the room was rented by someone else almost confirms it.

    -Who was the guy in the photo with her? It looks to me like the man was Hispanic, and the picture looks like (judging from what looks to be a curtain) it was shot in one of those self serve photo kiosks.

    -It is possible that the woman had origins in Mexico, or elsewhere, since nobody in NM seems to recognize her, especially with the amount of identifying information available.

    -There is a strong possibility that this was a homicide. I find it tough to believe that a shower spout would be strong enough to hold up a hanging, thrashing person at 140 lbs.

    Agree - could she have been strangled and then hung in the shower??

    And with blond hair, the Hispanic ID seems weird...unless it was dyed?

    So many questions....
