Resources for Researching - NO DISCUSSION

We have many threads on WS that have GREAT info in them for researching when working on missing/unidentified cases. Sometimes the threads are hard to locate though. So..... here's a thread for the Unidentified forum. You may post links here to sites you use regularly and that you find useful.

No Discussion though - only the link and a brief description of what one might find at the link.

I have two links for you today

http://www.rgj.com/article/99999999/...orthern-Nevada - links to a map showing where unidentified persons have been found in the State of Nevada. (Map originally found by poster Ruby Red - thanks Ruby!)

http://www.unthumanid.org/Forensics/...nformation.cfm links to the Center for Human Identification. Can be useful for obtaining family reference DNA samples.

Salem

ETA: Also - remember to check the Lighting the Way Home forum. There is a ton of information in that forum that is very helpful in researching.

Great Link!

This is a great link. Another poster Calliope posted it in the missing forum. It tells about different fabrics and how much they can determine from them plus much more.

Quote:
Fabrics may aid the forensic scientist and/or detective in determining length of time since death. Decay of fabrics is based on what the materials are and how long they've been there. Styles of shoes and clothing also help pinpoint dates. Below is a chart representing the most common types of fabrics and exposure to various elements over time.

Ya'll may have seen this already, but I hadn't and thought it might come in handy.

A list of Harris County (Houston, Tx area) UIDs - not sure how many of these are referenced in other places (eg DoeNetwork, NAMUS)

Please note that Imamaze has worked tirelessly in providing links to help in the Resource Center that was formed earlier this year. It even has a comprehensive state-by-state area for information. If you have links to add to it, feel free to open a new thread there.

State by State - Websleuths Crime Sleuthing Community

There is also an "Outside the US" area and much much more. Take a field trip over there and check it out.

I just took a look around there...very cool stuff...thanks!

Kimster, can you post this in that section under Ohio unidentified? I tried to, but it looks like it's closed.

http://www.ohioattorneygeneral.gov/unidentifiedremains

Although these cases are in NAMUS, Doe, etc., I found new and helpful information on several cases listed on this site that was not listed anywhere else.
