The shape of the face of this Jane Doe kinda matches, but Jane Doe is listed as 4" shorter than Amanda. Amanda's glasses in the photo do not appear tinted so am unsure.

Amanda on left, Jane Doe on right.

Unidentified White Female
* Located on May 28, 1992 in Phoeniz, Arizona
* Cause of death was homicide by strangulation.
* Estimated date of death is May, 1992
* State of Remains: Somewhat advanced mummification

Vital Statistics

Case History
Shortly after 1 a.m. on May 28, 1992, Phoenix police, using tracking dogs, found the decomposing body in a desert area commonly used to dump trash, in the 2000 block of East Deer Valley Road.
A man riding an all-terrain vehicle noticed a foul odor coming from a rubbish pile and saw a hand sticking out. He called police, who used tracking dogs to find the body under a sheet of plywood.

could be

Looks like a possibility. Height & weight estimates could be off a little on the remains found.

The Jane Doe is not Amanda. The above article gives a really detailed account of the search for Amanda. So sad - I hope she's found soon.








Quote:
During a recent search through Websleuths.com, The Enterprise discovered that in January, a user with the screen name PonderingThings made a possible connection between Amanda and the body found in the Phoenix desert.

"OK. I've finished my searches and these are the possibilities I've come up with. The closest match is Amanda, in my opinion, but the chin is off. Still don't know...," PonderingThings wrote.

About a month ago, the Enterprise contacted Phoenix police about the possible connection, and investigators there then contacted Orange deputies.

It seemed the family's wait could be over soon.

But it wasn't Amanda.

The girl apparently is the daughter of a woman living somewhere in California, police said.

Im sure the friend would have said something if Amanda had come to any harm though. It seems to me she just didnt want to be found!

May Amanda Rest in Peace. Her story is so sad, and I hope her daughter will be able to at last form a bond with her maternal grandmother.

That article was well-written, but I'm still wondering how Amanda's body was released for burial if LE didn't have (I assume) her real SSN or identifying information. Likewise, how did she get prenatal care and hospitalization when she had her daughter? One of the photos shows her shortly after she gave birth to her daughter in what is clearly a medical setting, i.e. not a home birth.
