    CA - L.A. Griffith Park, WhtFem 725UFCA, 20-28, @Picnic Table, Jun'68 Cheryl McMillan

    Came across this case, possibly named "Sherryl Miller", according to the case file:

    ETA: WARNING post mortem photos at attached link:

    http://coroner.co.la.ca.us/htm/uipde...num=1968-05805

    She is also listed on the Doe Network as Hot Case 1155.

    It just caught my attention because the body was found around my birth date. Also was struck by the photo of the young woman in the case file -- she just looks like she's sleeping.

    (I'm not a frequent poster, but I thought I'd start a thread for her...)

    Unhappy

    She's beautiful, I wonder what the cause of death was?
    Terrible waste of a life

    so she possibly had the initials E.J. and someone with the initials C.B. gave her that ring? perhaps Sherryl Miller was a stage name?

    fwiw: Robert Kennedy was assassinated June 5, 1968.

    From reading the brief info. available,
    she was staying at a motel, under the name Sheryl Miller.
    She had a ring on.
    She was wearing a bikini, white coat and black sandals.
    She was found at 9:30am, June 6, 1968.

    Questions:

    What was her cause of death?
    How long had she been dead?
    Why was she wearing a bikini at 9:30am?
    How did she get to Griffith Park?
    How far is it to Griffith Park from her motel in Studio City?
    Wondering if LE thought
    she came to LA to be an actress?
    Or if they thought she was a CA girl?
    Did LE think she had fallen on hard times?

    So many questions.

    It sounds like she had been modeling because of the bikini and coat. There was a serial killer in LA in the 1960's who impersonated a modeling photographer--he would put ads in the Hollywood acting publications. I cannot remember his name, but I think he has ties to CO, and perhaps even the former Boulder Jane Doe. Let me see what I can find...

    O/T: I wonder if they ever determined if she had a child. She makes me think of someone who could be Sharon Marshalls mother...


    Edit: Nevermind, it was Harvey Glatman, and he was executed in 1959.

    Height is off somewhat, but other things match:

    If she dyed her hair, possibly?

    What about Donnis Marie Redman?

    1. Lynn B: Missing 1967, She does have the look of Sheryl.
    We need side by sides. Or rotate side by sides to see Sheryl from that angle.
    She does have 5 stars at NaMus. Dental and dna are available. \

    2. Darlene P: Missing 1967, To me, she does not look as much like
    Sheryl, as Lynn B does.

    3. Donnis R: Missing 1967 ,
    When I pulled up both computer pics, she looks a lot like Sheryl.
    She is not on NaMus.
    No notes if her dna or dental available.

    I would think we need more info about Lynn B and Donnis R.
    IMO:
    But Lynn B does have dna and dental, hmm.,
    probably too early to ask for a dna check.

    Thanks, to everyone, for your input!!!

    Here is a side-by-side of the Griffith Park unidentified female (who is 20+ yrs old in photo), and Donnis Marie Redman (who is about 15 yrs old in photo):

    A concern I have for Donnis and Lynn is that they do not have brown eyes as listed on the UID info. JMO

    My thoughts on the ring is perhaps it belonged to a family member such as grandparents. I did some searching for marriages with the date to see if I could find something that matched the initials but didnt come up with anything. My thought on that is that since it is from someone to someone, that it would be a wedding ring. If they were married in 1920 they you can figure that they would have to be around 20years old at the time leaving them born in around 1900....since she was found in 1968 seems like a plausible conclusion. Perhaps some better sleuthers can go with this angle...outside of googling I am not much of a sleuth!!haha

    Doe Network Link

    http://www.doenetwork.org/hot/hotcase1155.html

    Possibly the ring is a family heirloom-judging by the date

    Doe Network doesn't have picture of victim-perhaps as it appeared on "photobucket-it could be sent to them?

    Question

    It's frustrating that there is no cause of death...

    It sounds drug related, it could tell us more aout her lifestyle.

    I wonder how long she had her head on the table?
    Who noticed? Was it crowded?

    I have so many questions and no clue how to get answers

    This looks like a good match, but the one on the left looks slightly 'older' than the one on the right

    It does sound drug related, and being in a bikini at that time in the morning is somewhat unsual ..

    Yes, Donnis really seems to resemble her, but the more I look, the more I think the mouth & lips, and the chin are wrong. Also, there's no getting past the difference in eye color. So, I don't think Donnis, Lynn, or Darlene are matches.

    I agree about the possibility of a drug-related crime/death for Sherryl.
