    Teresa Cupps

    https://www.findthemissing.org/en/cases/12468/6/

    Nickname is Kimbi Boyd

    The tattoo said "Kim" and not "Kimbi", but maybe it was a work in progress?

    Anyways, besides that, all stats match.

    I am unsure. Can anyone else take a look?

    AK is Alaska, AR is Arkansas. Sorry I've seen a lot of this lately and wanted to point it out so threads are labeled correctly.

    Could be. I would see if the mods can change the thread title.though. I think AR is Arkansas. AK is Alaska.

    I think it's her. I would send in a tip for them to look into it.

    I believe it is her. I sent the tip to the doe network earlier this year. They replied saying the match was already submitted by someone else.

    This, and the Fontana Cherry Ave Jane Doe, were two of the toughest recons I've done. The lighting in the PM photos are terrible, and the faces were swollen and damaged, making it very difficult to discern what they looked like in life. And the hairstyles were a complete mystery, given what you can see in the PM photo.

    This new reconstruction is an interesting take, and she very well might actually look like that. The hair on the new recon is probably more accurate than mine. I started trying to re-do my recon yesterday, before I saw the new NCMEC version. I set it aside though, and went on to something else.

    This is the first I've heard that there is also a John Doe connected to Kim Doe's case.

    I can't find anything else in the unidentified male found the same day in Missouri--no Namus or Doe profiles that I see.

    I hadn't done any revisions to this one for quite awhile. So I spent some time today revising my original attempt, and here's what I came up with.

    I am not so sure.

    Someone tattooing a name on their body could be one of a few things: name of a family member, name of the victim, or name of a lover.

    Her nickname was Kimbi. One would naturally assume that the whole tattoo would say Kimbi.

    Both sides have full DNA profiles, so you'd think if she was Teresa Cupps, there would be a CODIS hit.
