    From the fox link: The reference is to Detective Crosson
    "He is now sending Simone’s dental records to a national database."

    Dental records are available for Jane Doe/PA. The magic question is if they are in the NCIC database...I will see if I can find out.

    Here is Jane Doe's NAMUS listing- I sent it to Detective Crosson to see if he had already reviewed the possible match. As you can see at the link, Simone is not listed for comparison.
    https://identifyus.org/cases/5166

    There is DNA for both and dental records for both, BUT Jane Doe's lower jaw was not located during the exhumation, so the prior examination could not be verified.

    I will update as soon as I can!

    Bummer-she is not in NAMUS/IdentifyUS that I can find. ETA: I would email the detective and ask if there is DNA and dental records available. I would also ask if she is listed in the NAMUS database for John and Jane Doe's.

    After watching that Fox video posted previously in this thread, I am left with some more questions.

    I was pausing the video to try to read the reports but was only able to read little bits and pieces... but found a couple interesting things in them.

    First, I was able to identify the man who said he gave her a ride, he would have been about 70 years old at the time, and was about 79 when he came forward after reading an article about Simone's case in the paper. There is always a possibility that he was confused but I have no reason to believe that he had any ill intentions, or would be a suspect. Since LE clearly has this person's name, though, I think it would be useful to look through the State Trooper logs and see if that person DID receive a violation of some sort that morning.

    One question I have had since I first read about this case, is why was Simone in a State Trooper's car? I wondered if maybe law enforcement regularly picked up hitchhikers back then?

    If you look at the first report in the video (the handwritten one), near the top of the first page it says something about Department of Corrections. near the middle of the same page, it says:
    "While I was there, I learned that Simone had a special visiting privilege for one day that afternoon. I waited around, to see if she showed up, but she didn’t."

    The following also came from the same report but parts of it were outside of the camera's range so it is incomplete: (... = unknown words)

    "to speak to….to see if he….find out why he had…to her. He said that he stopped…cause she had stopped writing to him…as knowing where she was, he had no idea and was quite concerned to find out she was missing. While I was there, I learned that Simone had a special visiting privilege for one day that afternoon. I waited around, to see if she showed up, but she didn’t. Upon my arrival to the Sherborn Police Station, I was informed by Det. Morrow that his daughter Kim had picked up Simone ten (or two) days prior to this date, at ... of Washington St and Maple St, and drove her to ... in Framingham.”

    I am wondering if she was incarcerated at the time, although reports say she was last seen at the Rainbow Restaurant, her place of employment. I'm not sure what a special visiting privilege for one day would mean. It could also explain why she was in a State Trooper car, if she was released from somewhere for the day with a police escort?

    My take on the other jumbled pieces of the report, is that her mother was trying to find out why someone had stopped by to see her unexpectedly and he said it was because she had stopped writing to him. So it could also have made sense that Simone was writing to and trying to visit someone who was incarcerated (and had a special privilege to do so), but that would mean the report probably didn't say "stopped by", if he was incarcerated. It kind of looks like her mother was saying she had information that Simone was scheduled to visit an incarcerated friend, and Simone's mother went to the jail to see if she showed up. Hard to say.

    The restaurant she was seen walking toward (according to the video) was a former Howard Johnson or Ground Round (reporter doesn't seem to be sure which). There was a Howard Johnson at Main and Winter streets in Hyannis, and there was also a Ground Round but I cannot find an exact location of where it was. The restaurant where she was last seen walking was near an airport, I'm assuming the Barnstable Municipal Airport. I am trying to figure out if this was in walking distance to her mother's house, or if she would have had to hitchhike again to get to her mother's from where she was dropped off.

    Can anyone make out any more of the report?

    ETA: the elderly man claimed he dropped her off at the Hyannis Rotary... things may well have changed over the years but from what I can see now, the rotary doesn't have a location... it meets at country clubs, etc.

    Just wanted to add that 'rotary' is also a rather Massachusetts-specific term for what others would call a 'traffic circle' or 'roundabout'. The only one in Hyannis appears to be the one near the Barnstable Municipal Airport. At the very least, this is what is being referred to, as her Charley Project page mentions the rotary being near the airport. According to this video, the rotary has recently been changed: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wNsHAvHdT-4

    Just thought I'd add that. Having spent my entire life in this state, hearing the word 'rotary' makes me think of that before I even think of the Rotary Club, and I always forget that we're pretty unique with that.

    Thinking of Simone...please help me remember her as well! Something bad happened to this girl, we need to at the very least keep attention on her case so she can be found and so her family can have closure. She is NOT a runaway!
    Praying for you tonright<3

    Caledonia Jane Doe was ruled out as being Simone:
    *Warning: Graphic photo*: https://identifyus.org/en/cases/6583

    I don't believe she was ever officially tested to being Princess Doe yet, she is only listed as Princess Doe's PM on her site.

    Believe,

    Have you ever heard back from Detective Crosson about Simone being compared to this UID?

    Currently this UID has 47 ruleouts and Simone still is not listed, with the last update being in September.

    Here is a side by side of the UID and Simone.
