Kellie Marie Brownlee
Missing since May 20, 1982 from Novi, Oakland County, Michigan.
Classification: Non-Family Abduction

Vital Statistics
Date Of Birth: November 5, 1964
Age at Time of Disappearance: 17 years old
Height and Weight at Time of Disappearance: 5'7; 135 pounds
Distinguishing Characteristics: White female. Brown hair; brown eyes.
Marks: She has double-pierced ears.
Dentals: Available. Brownlee's left front tooth is capped.
Clothing: She wore a long sleeved peach blouse, white painter pants and Nina brand burgundy high heels at the time of disappearance.

Circumstances of Disappearance:
Brownlee was last seen at the Twelve Oaks Mall in Bloomfield, MI around 11 AM on May 20, 1982. On the morning of May 20, 1982, Kellie and her boyfriend took the bus to school, but Kellie didn't attend class. At 9 a.m., she hitchhiked to Twelve Oaks Mall in Novi to apply for a job. At 11 a.m., Kellie ran into a friend's mom who offered Kellie a ride, but Kellie wanted to put in more applications before heading home. That was the last time anyone saw her.

Kellie was a "Wall 'Tuckian," the nickname for the big-haired girls in blue jeans, high heels and army jackets who hung around Walled Lake in the early 1980s. She listened to Ozzy Osbourne and smoked Marlboro Reds.

Kellie was staying with her boyfriend, Mark Graves, and his family in their apartment in Walled Lake, Michigan in May 1982. She had moved out of her family's West Bloomfield, Michigan home after telling friends that her stepfather, Paul Brownlee, abused her. Her friends stated that they had seen bruises on Kellie's body before she vanished. Paul had pleaded guilty to fourth-degree criminal sexual misconduct in 1977 when Kellie's older sister Kim filed charges against him. Kim then moved to California, where the girls' biological father resided. Kellie remained in Michigan, where she had a good relationship with their mother, Loretta. Kellie had occasionally moved out of the family's home after problems with Paul came to the forefront. Loretta stated that Kellie was planning to move back to West Bloomfield once Paul left the residence. Loretta did not divorce Paul until 1985, three years after Kellie disappeared, but there were apparently ongoing discussions about the plan at the time.

Graves reported that Kellie was missing when she did not return to his family's apartment or call him by 9:00 PM. A search was initiated soon after, but little evidence was located. Graves was ruled out as a suspect early on in the investigation. Speculation began to center around Paul Brownlee, who claimed that he was visiting his father-in-law's grave and going to the gym on the day Kellie disappeared. Paul also denied abusing Kellie in any way and maintained he had nothing to do with her disappearance.

Foul play is suspected in this case.

It seems that Kellie may fit the description of the Jane Doe in MD 1982. Though the height is a little off.

Anyone know if this possibility has been checked out? I agree that Kellie does seem to match the composite sketch somewhat.

Yes, I Think That Is A Very Probable Match Because..

There is a huge Dental school at U of M in Ann Arbor which is only about 30 miles from Detroit, so the fact that the UID victim had dental work consistent with work done by dental students is a very good reason to submit it.

I have sent this information to Law Enforcement Officials in Maryland and in Michigan, and have received confirmation that they have received it and are looking into it.

I will definitely follow up on it, but from past experience realize that it will take some time for the authorities to gather necessary records and check things out. I have no personal knowledge of any previous attempts to match these two cases, although it is possible.

Other possible matches which have been submitted involving other cases have often taken weeks or months to resolve. There are various reasons for delays. Sometimes the wrong records are sent. Sometimes simply case workload and availability of experts, etc. Be patient...

Dental Comparison...

Regarding a Maryland Medical Examiner comparison of Kellie Marie Brownlee's dental charts with the Frederick County Jane Doe (located in 1982):

Dental comparison of Kellie Brownlee was inconclusive, but a low probability.

In other words, Kellie was not ruled out, but a positive identification could not be made based on the dental records.

At this time, I do not have any further information regarding specifically what matched and what did not. I also do not know what plans (if any) the Maryland ME office might have to investigate this possible match further.

As I understand it, the case is still open and the investigation is on-going. As to whether they will continue to pursue a possible match between Kellie and Frederick Jane Doe, only the investigators could say. She has not been ruled out, but as yet no positive match has been made.

Word from LE regarding comparison...

Here is the most recent word from Law Enforcement regarding comparison between Kellie Marie Brownlee and the Frederick Jane Doe:

-------------------------------------------
Sir,
I have looked into Ms. Brownlee. While she has not been ruled out, when looking at dental charts, it is very unlikely that she is our Jane Doe.

Good questions. I simply do not know the answers. Perhaps someone else does?
