    It was at a recycling facility, so who knows where the body was when someone disposed of it. They just found this body this afternoon -- you sure get news fast!

    I doubt it. She's been missing nearly a year and it would be a little unusual for her to show up in the trash now. Not impossible, but not likely.

    You are probably right. Weird, though, that this story is in the news the last couple of days after so long.

    This sounds like they need to know who it is if they know she's 20.


    http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/lanow/2010/09/body-dodger-stadium-recycling-center.html

    But then this, a day later, the same writer, says it could be a woman in her twenties.

    A recycling facility is now a crime scene after a woman's body was discovered inside a bag.

    http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/lan...found-at-recycling-center-near-chinatown.html

    Maybe they initially had a missing person report of a woman in her twenties in mind for a match?
    But according to Namus the victim is way older than that.

    LOS ANGELES&#8212;Authorities are offering $50,000 for information about an unidentified woman whose body was found in the trash at a Los Angeles recycling center. <snip>

    Police posted information on a Facebook page called "The Body Recycler."

    http://www.mercurynews.com/news/ci_17794631?nclick_check=1

    FB link:

    http://www.facebook.com/profile.php...ges/The-Body-Recycler/183914358308277?sk=info

    Interestingly with a 50 grand reward the NamUs case file is not updated with the sketch and jewelry information LE posted at the FB page. :banghead:

    According to the MSM article this UID had a recent dental crown. (I don't see that detail listed at NamUs or the FB page). It got me thinking about how Chicago PD solved the Marlaina Reed case. They sent Marlaina's dental information to a local dental publication and a local dentist and his/her receptionist recognized Marlaina as a patient which led to her ID.

    http://www.amw.com/fugitives/case.cfm?id=49245

    Marlaina also has a thread here at WS which has since moved to the currently awaiting trial forum. http://www.websleuths.com/forums/showthread.php?t=57722&highlight=marlaina+reed


    Hopefully LAPD has sent this UID's dental info to any local and national dental publications as possible.

    from Cubby's first link:

    "The reward was announced Thursday for information that could lead to the woman's identity and the circumstances of her death." (emphasis added)

    for $50k, I'll keep trolling the internet to try to get an identity, but that sentence says identity "and the circumstances of her death."

    makes me wonder if an indentity is worth (reward-wise) or if what they really want is the circumstances of death.

    An ID might lead to the circumstances of her death as it did in the case of Marlaina Reed. FWIW, Marlaina was a ward of the state and a teen runaway on the streets. Her case was featured on AMW but due to her circumstances we didn't have much faith she'd be id'd. Not only was she id'd but her killer was caught and is awaiting trial.

    We do this sleuthing reward or not, so let's see what we can do to help this UID get her name back and give LAPD some assistance with this case. Also, as with any reward there are always specifics - it may be reward will be split among more than one individual who assists with providing information leading to the id and/or circumstances of her murder.

    I see the very first link provides a composite sketch which is not found at Namus.

    any way the more technologically advanced can post the face on the thread for easy access?

    The estimated age range is all over the place for this UID.
    • Initial MSM reports est age 20's
    • NamUs 60-70
    • FaceBook 40-80
    • Most recent MSM article 50-60
    Which basically leaves us with the possibility of a lot of throw it against the wall and see what sticks. Due to that I noticed the following identifiers at the NamUs case file and most recent MSM article.

    From NamUs:
    Finger Prints available and negative with CA-DOJ, FBI and DHS-BSC West

    From MSM article (April 11):
    Recent Dental Crown

    Hopefully the above might help with research for possible matches.

    An additional photo has been added to the FB page mapping the route the recycling took on the day this UID was found.

    I see the resemblence, however Deborah has a very large number of known alias's indicating she is known to LE. Deborahs NamUs link indicates her prints are on file at another location. I'd think that would rule her out based on the UID's NamUs file indicating: Finger Prints available and negative with CA-DOJ, FBI and DHS-BSC West

    Keep looking!

    I had not seen the term DHS-BSC West previously so did a search. For those like myself not familiar here is a tidbit and link with some comments that have a good explanation.


    US-VISIT last week opened a newly remodeled Biometric Support Center (BSC) in
    San Diego, Calif. The BSC/West was established in 1995. Initially, it was opened to provide fingerprint verification services to Immigration and Naturalization Service. The BSC/West operates 24/7 with a staff of twenty-seven. The BSC/West counts the following metrics
