I don't know if anyone has brought this one up yet, but could this be her:
The description fits, except I think this girl looks more like 17-19, instead of 20. She was strangled and if I'm reading the dentals right on Namus sounds like there was major trauma to her face?
I agree with you (I think I proposed this match in the original thread). Strangling and beating in the face is Alcala's primary method, it seems. And the girl in the photo looks like she could be posed in a hotel room.
The title of this post should be changed to "girl or boy" as there was much discussion as to whether or not this picture is of a male or a female. JM2cents.
Unidentified White Female

Where is Nancy Moyer?
This may be the same woman. If you blow it up, her hair (styled differently) and facial features seem to match.
Yes, they do look similar.
Where is Nancy Moyer?
I just don't see it. Yes, they're both blonds with very blue eyes but that's about it. Their teeth are completely different and the boy/girl in the blue backround pic has some VERY distinct freckles which aren't present on the other picture. I don't believe these two people are one and the same.
If you look at the very bottom of the photo, there's a slight curve that might indicate the person has breasts.
With the release of the NYPD photos showing different angles to this person, I'm back to thinking it is an androgynous boy

M O O, as per usual
They cropped some of the photos of the boy in front of the native print curtain similarly.
Maybe they are not always sure if the person is a boy or a girl who hasn't got breasts to talk about yet. Maybe they try to crop all the nudity out, male or female, to be on the safe side.
More newly released photos (from WPIX).
It is the nature of the truth to struggle to the light.
I agree they wouldn't have cropped the photos if there were not breasts. Also the poses strike me as ones a female rather than a male would make. If it's a male then in the first picture we have here it is a male with gynecomastia.
I now think that this is a woman. The face is more feminine than that shown in the earlier photograph and they're ALL cropped above the breasts. No reason to do this unless there was nudity that could be deemed inappropriate.

I think she is a female, but a masculine looking one.
The white wall near her looks like painted over wallpaper.

sitting on the dresser it looks like two men's ties laying there. ?
But then again, I thought the chain link fence woman was the Nation River Lady, and it turns out chain link fence woman is alive.
Oh heavens, is that a folded towel with something printed on it in green in at least one of the photos? One of Nation River Lady's ligature's was a kitchen towel.
"Irish Toast" towel: This item was manufactured in Ireland, exported to Toronto, Ontario and distributed to stores in Ottawa, Toronto and Montreal. They were sold at $1.39 (Canadian) each and had been stocked in stores for some time. The towel had Irish Gaelic printing on it, spelling out a traditional Irish toast. "
It looks largish to be a kitchen towel. I wish I could see a picture of the sort of towel Nation River Lady was found with.
