There does not appear to be any 'Emma Rd'. The road
being referred to is probably 'Mount Emma Rd', which
would place the body location about in this area;

Possibly the reason why the body was found with such a
short PMI of only 2 to 3 days, is that this area is nearby
to one of the entrances to a walking trail;
and that track was in existence in 1990.
This was most likely a girl who resided in the USA (tan, bikini line), probably not far from where she was found. She was killed or died elsewhere and dumped (no shoes?) I have the feeling this was done by a family member or somebody close to her and she is not reported missing. Strange wording in the file; Pastel stripes on shirt. What color pastel? Not that it matters that much. Insufficient DNA for profiling: Nowadays it's possible to build up a DNA string from a tiny bit of material due to evolution of technology. Maybe this girl still has a chance to be identified if they kept what they had.
