    I am really glad that the Daily Breeze wrote about these two unidentified women. I e-mailed the Long Beach Press Telegram (which is the same company as the Daily Breeze) asking if they could write about about some of the unidentified people found in the 1970s from Long Beach. This is their website if anyone wants to e-mail them and suggest an unidentified person -- http://www.presstelegram.com/

    This girl was just added NamUs a couple weeks ago.

    Rebecca Rodriguez
    https://www.findthemissing.org/cases/12861/1

    I found her sophomore photo in the 1977 Liberty High School (Brentwood CA) Yearbook.
    [​IMG][​IMG]

    She fits this jane doe in some respects, maybe not in other respects:

    Positives:

    * Age and Ethnicity are consistent.

    * The Jane Doe is described as having "her upper teeth overlapped on the right side". Rebecca's photo clearly shows that her teeth fit that description.

    * Her height fits spot-on.

    * Timeline: July 16, 1977 (DLC) to April 20, 1978 (DOD) - 9 months.

    Negatives:

    * Distance - Brentwood CA (i.e., in Northern CA, not where OJ lived) is about 360 miles from Carson

    * Stretch marks/Abdominal Scar - There is no indication that Rebecca gave birth. (Although abdominal stretch marks are caused by other things besides pregnancy). There was no mention that the UID had skeletal indications of prior pregnancy. There was enough time after her disappearance to carry a child to term, especially if she was pregnant a couple months prior to her DLC.

    * Perp's vehicle - Rebecca's captor was driving a pearl-white, 1960 lowered chevy (unknown model) with mag rims, with a large dent in the tailgate door. The perp who dumped Jane Doe's body was reportedly driving a dark blue 1970 Vega hatchback.

    * Overall Resemblance - Not particularly strong.

    I don't think Rebecca could be this Jane Doe, since the
    profiles ended up having the wrong picture. Here's her Charley Project link, and a link to Charley saying why the pic was changed (two RRs in the same class -- an honest mistake when there are no other pictures of the missing person) http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/r/rodriguez_rebecca.html https://charleyross.wordpress.com/2016/05/09/attention-everyone-a-public-service-announcement/ the old one is still on NamUs though, I wonder why they haven't changed it?

    This case is very sad, though. If she really did have a child, I wonder how old they are today, and if they're thinking about their mom at all. (And the recon isn't even on that NamUs page, which is also strange. May email the case manager with a link to it so they can add it.)

    I emailed Dustin Driscoll and got an image added to this girl's NamUs page as well as the girl from 1977's page!
