    It seems few details have been amended or deleted on doe network in her case. In 2006 her age was listed between 25-30 (now 20 - 30), cause of death - strangulation (now deleted), fingerprints available, DNA available (now not available)

    Luckily her dental details were also published there before NamUs made it not visible to public

    I think Wanda is a good match to this doe but I don't think she's on any databases so I wouldn't know how to submit a tip.

    Wanda Gail Loe, age 24, went missing from Tahoe City, California in July 1968.
    Wanda was employed at Sunnyside Resort at 1850 West Lake Blvd, on the shore of Lake Tahoe, and she was a reliable employee who would not just take off, according to those who knew her. She had attended Pepperdyne University, and had traveled to Germany prior to coming to the Lake Tahoe region. She was originally from Alabama.
    While I am not sure of the date of her disappearance, her car was found in the parking lot of her workplace and she was never seen again.
    Wanda was often listed as a possible victim of the Zodiac Killer, in part due to the proximity to Donna Lass, who is a suspected victim of the Zodiac.
    However, her boyfriend, Dennis Finn, reportedly confessed to murdering Wanda to a cousin, while heavily intoxicated. Dennis died in 1982, and was never charged with her disappearance.
    It is believed that her remains may be in the Carpenter Valley area, near Truckee, CA, which sits along Donner Pass.
    As of this writing, Wanda’s case is not listed on NamUs or any of the other databases. I hope someone in her family can submit a DNA sample in case her remains are located. I hope she can be found soon.

    I'm wondering if there's an email address I can submit Wanda as a possible match? She's not on any databases to the best of my knowledge so I couldn't submit her that way.

    Why isn't the DNA available if it was available in the past?

    She seems to be in Namus afterall....DNA samples available but testing not completed...

    https://www.findthemissing.org/en/cases/show/38924

    Comparing the stats broadly Wanda is a pretty good fit (except for the circumstances around her missing, expected be murdered but her body is never found ....detailed comparison is needed.

    I'm glad she's finally in namus so that's something.
    I didn't read anything about Wanda being suspected Murdered? Just that She vanished without a trace. There's not much information about her disappearance

    All kinds of stuff about Wanda. No hard prove that she was indeed murdered..just speculations. LE couldn't prove that her cousin killed her although he confessed to this. The Zodiackiller story is just a theory. Her body was never found....

    Everywhere they state that Wanda was happy with her work and not troubled (at least not on the "outsite") ... Jane Doe was a supposed prostitute. That's the reason I have doubts...

    Although they say Lynn had green eyes and no frekkles mentioned let's explore her case a little bit more....

    This is what I could find (don't have full excess, to the paper or picture) in The San Bernadino County Sun, june 4th, 1967.

    Spack man Sun-Telegram photo the intensive search by Mrs. Bandringa's husband Philip, right, and his father, Philip Sr., left. She vanished without, trace .from the family's trailer sales lot on Main St., Hesperia, while Bandringa was in Barstow. WHERE IS SHE? "Prado," the German Shepherd owned by Mrs. Lynn M. Bandringa, mis-sins since last Monday, entered the search for her in the Hesperia Yictorville area yesterday. Dog was handled during (Continued From City Page)

    I'm not sure about her story/missing circumstances and ending up as an supposed prostitute. Leaving with nothing maybe she had to work on the streets for a living. Everything is possible...

    Not that know off or have seen. I know CarlK has a lot of PM pictures from the time you could find them freely on the Internet. From another thread about another Jane Doe from LA, where not even a recon exists, I understood CarlK asked if he could see PM pictures, to make a recon, but he was not allowed. So maybe he has them from this JD but I think not because he would have made a better recon....

    [​IMG][​IMG] could it be Donnis Redman?

    https://www.findthemissing.org/en/cases/1475/6/

    Strawberry blond hair, blue eyes, missing since March 01, 1958, 14 years, would be 24-25 in 1968, 5'2" a little bit smaller than UID = '5.5". She has the same nose and full lips and a bow from nose over cheek IMO, although her picture is sun touched, she seems to have freckles, is a type who could have freckles. I'm not sure about the eyebrows. Maybe she was forced into prostitution and they killed the boyfriend.

    Redman was last seen in Las Vegas, Nevada on March 1, 1958. She was accompanied by her boyfriend at the time. She has never been heard from again. The boyfriend's car was found in Williams, Arizona several days later. Few details are available in Redman's case. Some agencies state Redman disappeared from San Pedro, California. Los Angeles, California police are investigating her case.
