    **WARNING: POST-MORTEM PHOTO OF 1983 Chautauqua Co. Jane Doe AT LINK BELOW**

    http://www.wivb.com/dpp/news/souther...of-same-killer

    This Oct. 29, 2010 news article explores a possible link between this Jane Doe and a UID woman found murdered in Chautauqua County in 1983.

    Interesting, Tatertot. I wonder if there is a connection. I know the first one has long been assumed to be left by a serial killer passing through... would the same serial killer do it again over 20 years later?

    Or is it a local guy, and these are just two women who were unlucky enough not to be identified?

    I've long believed there's a serial killer in Jamestown. There are just too many unsolved murders of women... I think 8. I live in a much more populated area now and there are only one or two.

    I've also wondered if Caledonia Jane Doe was connected. The same sort of shooting.
    Opinions expressed are strictly my own (who else would they belong to???)

    New York State has a lot of missing women. I often wonder if there is a serial killer on the loose. The Adirondack Park is a desolate area not well traveled in the off months, and most homes are seasonal camps.

    There's not much to go on, but this missing woman would have been within the UID's height range and she disappeared in November, when wearing boots would have made sense. Her case was added to the Charley Project today:

    According to other news reports, her family didn't even know she was missing!

    There is a News Conference scheduled for Tuesday (tomorrow) by the Sheriff's Dept. The local news isn't covering it yet.

    This was one of my pet cases I that I spent hours trying to figure out who she was. She wasn't listed in any of the Missing People databases I use, so go figure. I am glad she got her identity back and the family can have some closure.

    I'm sure it pleased Traci, that people cared enough to try and help her. I'm really impressed that her remains were identified, as it looks like it took quite a bit of research to do so. Nothing on local news so far, today, that I can find.

    From the above article: "Some of those leads took us out of the area and out of state, which is why the FBI was involved in assisting us in our investigation," he said. "Ultimately one of the leads that came in, encouraged us to take a look at whether or not this could be who we ultimately identified as Traci Douglass of Salamanca, N.Y. One of those leads that came in came in from somebody who knew Traci, saying, 'Hey I haven't seen her in a while, maybe you should take a look for her.'"

    That last sentence really strikes me as odd.
