    CO - Custer Co., Partial female remains found, Nov'09 - Rebecca Magallanes

    Authorities continue to investigate the identity of a woman whose dismembered and headless body was found in a secluded area off CR 386 last week.

    According to Custer County sheriff Fred Jobe, a passing motorist discovered the remains of the unknown woman late afternoon on Tuesday, Nov. 24 on public lands south of Wetmore known as South Hardscrabble.
    According to preliminary autopsy findings, the body is that of a 190-200 pound, 5’3” to 5’6” white or Hispanic woman in her 30s or 40s. (snipped)

    Colorado authorities are aware of missing Patricia Kimmi.

    Two different articles about this both have comments that other bodies have been found in nearby Fremont County. I can't find anything about that; any locals hear anything? Is there ever a time authorities wouldn't disclose the fact that they're finding corpses? Have I been suckered in by a troll? Lol So many questions..... http://www.krdo.com/Global/story.asp?S=11583442 & http://www.kktv.com/home/headlines/76565227.html

    Based on what we already know (white/Hispanic, 5'3-5'6, 200 pounds, 30s-40s), I think the following missing woman could be possible for this UID:

    Maria Rosario Olea

    Some people do crossword puzzles or Soduko in their spare time...I look at skeletal reconstructions and work on UID puzzles. I swear I'm not this morbid in person!

    Help Fred Murray find his daughter and bring her home. He should not be walking those woods alone!

    The physical description matches, but she went missing three years ago. The Wet Mountain Tribune article indicates that the body had been dumped recently (presumably not bones), so she would have had to have been held captive for three years and then murdered.

    Sheriff: Few clues surface in death case

    The investigation continues into the identity of a woman whose dismembered and headless body was recently found in a secluded area south of Wetmore on public lands off CR 386.

    Custer County sheriff Fred Jobe says his office continues to get phone calls from law enforcement officials in surrounding counties regarding missing persons.

    Also, said Jobe, family members of missing persons throughout the state are contacting the Custer County sheriff’s office.

    However, said Jobe, the identity of the woman remains unknown.

    Thanks for looking, future. I sure hope they get an ID on her soon. In one of the articles I read, it said she had dark hair. I'm not sure if that means her head was found nearby, or there was hair on her clothes. Someone went through great lengths to hinder identification. My guess is there are no hands for fingerprints, either.

    He said there are no tattoos or distinguishing marks on the portion of the woman's body that was found.
    The woman is believed to have been white or Hispanic and was in her 30s or 40s. She weighed about 200 pounds and was 5 feet 3 inches to 5 feet 6 inches tal.
    Custer County Coroner Art Nordyke said the body was found Nov. 24 by someone who stopped to use the bathroom by an old campground.

    Not new news, but I didn't see the link. Forgive me if it's a repost.
    JMO. Unless there's a link, I can't prove it.

    Since they didn't find her head, my guess would be pubic hair. (not to be too gruesome....)

    should I still submit Maria Olea as a possible match to the LE on the UID case?

    Future criminologist: My vote would be yes. Wetmore is very close to Colorado Springs and she matches the description. Plus whoever killed this Jane Doe didn't want her to be ID'ed which suggests to me it was not a stranger. It sounded like Maria's husband or boyfriend was suspected in her disappearance, so she matches in the circumstances, too. The only thing that is off is timing. But since we don't know exactly what happened to Maria, we don't know for sure that it is off.

    Bumping for JD in CO. Have you heard anything from law enforcement, futurecriminologist?

    I saw in the very first post that Colorado knew about Patricia Kimmi missing. Have they looked to see if this woman could be her. NE Kansas has been searched and dug on and she has not been found.

    On April 20, 2010, this body was identified as Rebecca Magallanes who was last seen in Florence, Colorado on November 6, 2009, but who was not reported missing until December 2009. Her employer ultimately reported her missing after hearing of the body being found. Her boyfriend of five years did not report her missing. He was arrested this week for her murder. Hopefully, Rebecca will get justice. But she has now been identified. RIP, Rebecca.

    RIP, Rebecca. I'm glad you have your name back, at least.
    Opinions expressed are strictly my own (who else would they belong to???)
