    So sad for this woman and anyone who knew and loved her at any point.... sounds like a freak accident.

    I am working on a case right now (professionally, in my work, not here on WS) of a man hit and nearly killed by a semi. He was transient with no ID. He is in his late 60s and has no one who knows him or seems to care about him. Heartbreaking.

    And it's LA, lots of people don't wear pants there. =)

    Oh geez. I was just recently reading about a missing woman who matches this description a couple of days ago. Oh please let me remember where I saw it...

    ETA: Found her: Brandi Duvall missing from North Carolina. But the tats don't line up.

    especially since the NAMUS listing reads" recognizable face". Perhaps waiting to see if this is enough to make an ID. I'd think it is and perhaps out of respect, no need to post her face at this point?

    I wonder if she suffered facial damage in the accident.

    absolutely. First thought I had as well. But the Namus listing does clearly states that her face is recognizable. (of course, could still be a lot of trauma there and be recognizable.) I just hope it was quick and this woman did not suffer in pain for long.

    The cross with the name and date looks like it could be a memorial cross.

    No tattoo mentioned on the leg but it is worth a shot.

    Thanks, I'll give it a shot. The sun/moon tat on her back seemed pretty significant to me.

    https://www.findthemissing.org/en/cases/27717/4 Wanda Lemons has "lower back - dolphins making a heart, few other unknown tattoos". Jane Doe's is "Upper Back/Posterior Right Shoulder – Yin Yang made with Pink/Blue Dolphins". She's in range on demographics.

    Naomi Sanders, missing from Hawaii in 2011, has a tribal band tattoo on her upper arm, no other tats listed but that's plenty of time to acquire the others. She's a bit smaller than decedent's listed stats.

    She has hazel eyes versus the blue of the Namus UP 16521.

    I hope you sent it in - with the wavy reddish-blonde hair, blue eyes, stats etc - seems like one that should be looked at for sure.

    Yes. I didn't rule her out on that because some hazel eyes appear blue some of the time--my youngest has that kind. He only calls them hazel because they aren't as blue as his dad's.

    I think the totality of not-quites makes her very unlikely, though.

    The tattoo of the cross with a rose enscribed with "Mark 8/26/78" seems like a memorial tattoo of someone's death rather than a birth date of or a marriage date. Maybe a childhood friend or sibling died when this UID was young? I was thinking maybe Mark was her father, but I think it would say Dad instead of Mark if it was for her father.

    It appears that there were several hundred men named Mark who died in August 1978...

    ^My fiance has a memorial tattoo for his dad with his first and last name and the date instead of Dad. I don't know how common that is however.
