    Why was she never listed on any of the missing sites? This could have been a match a long time ago.

    Yolo County isn't all the far from Butte County. Wouldn't Yolo have notified at least their neighboring counties.

    Sorry, just a tad angry that this went for 17 years and seems to have been an easy match if reported.

    I would say that probably 90% of all missing persons never are seen on a missing person site.

    That was one gorgeous ring. If she was doing meth you'd think she'd have pawned that off..

    I've seen heights be off by a few inches.

    But if she was honestly telling the truth about her mother having a hysterectomy, I'm pretty sure those don't just grow back.

    I agree they dont grow back which would cause a problem - how would the DNA be a match then? :confused::confused:

    Well it could be a mistake, or the mother could have not had a hysterectomy and said she did (Maybe like how some women say they're on birth control when they aren't? I have no idea why).


    How often is DNA wrong though? I know that in cases of twins they need fingerprints to tell the difference instead of DNA, but I doubt that she had a twin that was found dead just months after she went missing.

    Yolo Co. has not marked UID as identified. Curious. Dental X-rays are available for comparison. The daughter could submit Mitochodrial DNA for comparison. I wonder who submitted to NamUs? Human error is always a possibility.

    http://yolosheriffs.com/unidncase.html

    The Butte County Sheriff’s Office had submitted DNA from Vicki’s parents to the
    California Department of Justice Bureau of Forensic Services to be entered into the
    Missing Person database with the hope of matching DNA in the future to unidentified
    human remains.
