    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Things that match:
    height
    Weight is within 5lbs
    UID had large gold earrings, Cynthia is shown in pictures with large earrings in her ears
    Cynthia was 37 when she went missing UID age range was 31-35
    Cynthia has as hysterectomy scar - UID is missing uterus and ovaries

    Cynthia went missing on August 10, 1990, UID was found August 26, 1990 and was decomposing.

    What is questionable is that Cynthia was missing an eye tooth and the UID is said to be missing Postmortem

    Please let me know what you all think!!

    The dental issue gives me pause, but I would definitely ask them to check, just to be sure. Everything else is so spot on...
    I would definitely turn it in.
    If you do, keep us posted!
    JMO. Unless there's a link, I can't prove it.

    I looked over the dental chart. Never saw the letters A, N, and P used like this. I assume the A means absent. Any clue as to what N and P mean?

    A is antemortem (lost before death) P is post mortem (after death) and N is natural tooth, with no fillings or other work done.

    Go for it! National City, IL is only 12 miles from St. Louis...everything more or less matches up.

    I sent an email yesterday but have yet to hear back... I even attached a read receipt and my email was read yesterday so at least I know someone saw it.


    Cynthia's Family even has a website for her http://www.findcynthia.com/

    I am thinking that even though they are across state lines (IL to MO)
    that someone had to try and make a comparison before.

    I just think Cythina and the UID have so much in common, that I didn't want to pass it up.

    Chaddylex - wow!! I bet it's her. I looked on her family's website that you posted and she was last seen in East St. Louis. By the way, East St. Louis is a city in Illinois across the river from St. Louis, Missouri. Let us know when you hear something.

    Well, I never heard a response from St Louis Medical Examiners office. I emailed Rocky Wells at the Doe Network (figured maybe he would get me an answer and all they told him is that it was already submitted. (which was probably me who submitted it) I asked him if they mentioned if it was ruled out and he said they didn't say either way.....

    Makes me mad. I don't want to bother them again, but I want to know either way. I know they read my email. I put a read receipt on it when I sent it.

    What should I do?

    Did you post this to the family site? Maybe try calling the police listing on Cynthia's missing flyer? I agree this looks promising and I wonder why it has taken so long. The body was found so near where the missing was last seen. I don't recall ever hearing of the body being found before (I am in the area).






    All kinds of hugs!

    I agree, why not post it to the families site, I'm sure they'd appreciate it one way or another, knowing that someone is out there looking for her!

    Hello Websleuths! I found this site a few years ago when Shawn Hornbeck was found so close to home and thought to myself "How many times have I seen this kid and never realized it was him?".I have been a lurker ever since,decided for the new year i would register.
    So that being said I found the Cynthia Day/Jane Doe a very good match. Being from the area I don't remember hearing about the UID being found and in 1990 the City of East St Louis was having problems of their own.They were sued by a former inmate and having no money the inmate was given the deed to city hall.So if these daughters filed a missing persons report I could see how it was lost or just not taken at all . This UID did not look like someone who would be missing from ESL and from what I have read the daughters filed another report in 2004.By then this UID was a cold case.
    In St Louis Mo city and county are seperate governments. The UID was found in county so city would have nothing to do with it and it was turned over to highway patrol who has a missing person task force.The UID wasn't listed there.The poster said to contact Tracy Lehmen ,she might be a county officer in the 4th precint .There was an officer there by that name a few years ago ,not sure if it's the same person.

    I read somewhere on here... (Can't remember where) that it's not good to contact the family members directly of missing people. I figured the Medical Examiners office would have the decency to at least give me a yes or no answer.

    I will contact the police dept on Cynthia's flyer tomorrow... (It's almost 10pm). I hate making calls, I wish they had an email address. They listed both the Illinois State Police and East St Louis PD.


    I will let you all know if I get a response!

    Thanks for the encouragement!
