    The age might be off, but the LA coroners website lists her as 12+. The timing is very close, and Medina was walking towards 9th street, which crosses 8th. Where this UID was found. No mention of tatoos on Medina.

    It sounds possible that they could match but I am new at this. Should we submit this? The pictures don't match too closely but the unidentified is listed as having curly hair and it appears straight in the reconstruction so who knows how much detail went it to the photo reconstruction. I also could not find this UID on the NamUs site.

    I was going to give the coroners office a call. I could not find her in NAMUS either. I cannot imagine they didn't look into this already, but you never know.

    "Dear Mr. XXXXXXXX,
    A DNA profile comparison was done between the decedent’s DNA profile and the DNA profile of the biological mother of MP Maria Medina on 5/17/2010.
    The results of the DNA profile comparison confirmed that this was not a match. The decedent is not MP Maria Medina. If you have any further questions please feel free to contact me."
