    What a strange reconstruction! Rather looks like a man than a woman.
    Did the 'woman' wear glasses? On the reconstruction it looks like that ...
    No wonder that so many bodies remain unidentified when such bad reconstructions are published.

    Bump. Since she was wearing a T-shirt distributed only in CA and turquoise necklace and ring, this seems like it should be solvable.

    Here's another link, wish they had real images of the necklace too.... according to Porchlight the little ad at this LP says "WANTED
    Contra Costa County sheriff coroner Harry D. Ramsay is seeking identification of Jane Doe, a homicide victim who was located at Tilden Park near Berkeley, California,
    August 23, 1975. Jane Doe is described as being a Caucasian female, 22 to 28 years old 5’ 3” tall, weighing 166 lbs. Medium brown hair, brown eyes. The body is well tanned and indicates the victim wore a bikini type bathing suit. Victim’s fingernails and toenails are well manicured. Victim exhibits extensive and excellent dental care. The only clothing worn was a turquoise blue t shirt with a silk screen type painting on the front depicting clouds and sun rays behind a bi plane."

    On NamUs, there is a much clearer image of the sketch. Oddly, the sketch shows five beads on her necklace, instead of the four listed in the description. It also says her hair was streaked, but not what color the streaks were. https://identifyus.org/en/cases/12922

    That pic of the reconstruction is horrible! I'm glad NamUs has a clearer image, but still...
