Miss. exhumation sought in new leads on 2 missing La. women

Quote:
Faulk told the newspaper he has been contacted over the past year by several groups looking into missing persons cases. That led to the discovery of similarities in the “Jane Doe” who died in the county of a hit-and-run accident in 1998 and two missing Louisiana women, Faye Aline Self, of Coushatta, and Nelda Louise Hardwick, of Lake Charles.

Hardwick's family members took the stand Friday trying to convince Judge Lisa Dodson that the woman buried in Hancock County 15 years ago is their loved one.

Judge Dodson said she needed a week to read the entire case file before she makes a ruling. But before she will announce her decision, she ordered Lori Test to clean the grave marker she defaced.

"Tell me why you wrote on the headstone?" Judge Dodson asked. "Because, I guess, having a moment of emotion, I couldn't stand the thought that she was sitting in there without her name on there," Lori Test answered.


Much more at this link including quotes from relatives' testimony, and disrepancies questioned by the judge.

Update: Judge delays final decision on exhuming body in Hancock County
Quote:
Sun Herald
Published: October 18, 2013
By ROBIN FITZGERALD

Dr. Mark LeVaughn, Mississippi's chief medical examiner, said he would help Faulk and a forensic anthropology team from a university unearth the remains. Another university has agreed to try to compile a DNA profile that could be compared to DNA from Hardwick's family.

"There is a high probability we will find biological material suitable for testing," LeVaughn said.

If the comparison isn't a match to Hardwick's family, the profile could be used to identify Jane Doe through DNA profiles in various databases, LeVaughn said.

Looks like the exhumation is a go. According to her Charley Project entry, foul play was suspected in her 1993 disappearance, and this woman was struck by a car in 1998, so I'm not sure what leads her family to think it's likely her, but will be good to have her DNA in CODIS, anyway.

A forensic anthropology team arrived in Hancock County Tuesday and began the process of exhuming an unidentified woman buried at St. Joseph's Cemetery, formerly Rotten Bayou Cemetery.

snipped for space

Forensic anthropologist Nicholas Hermann and his team from Mississippi State University began Tuesday by marking off "Jane Doe's" grave of and doing preliminary work at the site. The actual exhumation of the body will not take place until later this week, Faulk said.

I'm not surprised. The autopsy photos do bear a very strong resemblance to Nelda. The identity of the other Hancock County Jane Doe was finally confirmed recently. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that we'll see both cases resolved before the end of the year.
