    The photo looks like the kind of backpack a high school or college student would carry.

    I agree. I would not call Barstow / Lenwood exactly desolate as compared to the 100's of mile of empty desert. Barstow is a major cross road for truckers and folks traveling to/from Nevada on the 15 or East on the 40 ("the river"). And Lenwood Road is the #1 Barstow stop for food, gas and shopping.

    IF you did not want a body / head found, there are many better places along the same road to BURY something. For example, the Zyzzx road to nowhere.

    Yep, Carl's right, it is his link. There are a lot of locations near the foot hills at the beginning of the 15 pass towards Barstow. Barstow is only 1.5 hours away from most of these.

    With all the CHP traveling between Victorville and Barstow, you would never want to stop on the side of the highway. Lenwood (west loop) would be the first exist to dump.

    That's the Zzyzx road to nowhere. (Not to be nitpicky or anything ) Everytime I am driving to Vegas and drive past the Zzyzx road offramp, I think to myself that this would be a great place to take a cadaver dog for a walk!!

    I was pretty sure I got it wrong but was too lazy to look it up. But every local will know what we mean.

    I agree, there has to be many bodies buried in the desert. Just too easy. They use to "joke" about the mob in Las Vegas taking people on a one-way trip into the desert. I'm not so sure there wasn't some truth in this joke.

    Womens Head found in Barstow

    I also have considered why it was placed in a backpack. Lets face it if it was merely dumped or thrown out in the desert an animal could of carried it off to God knows where but placing it in a public area like a road near the Lenwood stop indicates to me that whoever was responsible may have been sending a message to her family or loved ones and wanted the backpack found. Maybe the head is a threat?

    Here is the NamUs file for the decedent. She had quite a few fillings and is a young hispanic female, 14-19, neck to shoulder length dark brown hair and brown eyes. Her estimated time of death is days. There's also a reconstruction with the file and photos of her ears.

    It's so sad to see a new NCMEC UID poster.

    Someone had to take care of this girl. She had a good bit of dental work that was high quality.

    David Van Norman is sure on the ball. They were pretty quick to get this out there.

    From a volunteer sleuther's standpoint, it makes me want to focus on San Bernadino cases because you know that you will be dealing with an enthusiastic professional who won't yawn at you over the telephone.

    Wow - that will really help with comparing to missing persons. I will look around more later - very sad case.

    Her nose and chin are spot-on.

    Her eyebrows look thicker, her cheeks aren't as broad, but her jaws are more broad. I have learned however, not to take forensic drawings too literally.

    I wish I could see her teeth or her ears. NamUs shows some excellent close-ups of her ears. I remember D VanNorman saying that he likes to compare ears because they so unique to each individual

    She disappeared from Alabama with a four-month lag. No reason to say that she couldn't have run off to California, but I would probably want to focus on people from Rialto, Fontana, San Bernadino, Rancho Cucamonga, and other cities in that area before broadening the search nationwide.

    I started looking through Facebook starting with people who went to the two High Schools in Rialto, but it looks like they don't list people by their high school unless they have graduated or are currently seniors. After about 10 minutes of looking, I realized that it would be a much larger, and not as effective method than I had previously thought.

    I seriously can't tell you this is not extremely possible, IMHO. Given it was a a reconstruction there is too much matching to not think it should be eliminated.
