    That's exactly what I'm wondering. At this point, I'm near convinced that Patricia is Jane Doe. The resemblance is just too accurate. I'm assuming that the dramatic changes in reconstruction photo (hair color, eyes, freckles) have to do with phenotyping. I wonder if they've narrowed down Jane Doe's DNA to a group/family and now there's some lag time confirming? If they have full DNA profiles for both (I'm almost certain they have Patricia's) then you would think it would be a quick, clear-cut 24-72 hours. I wish I knew!

    Page is still down, hoping it's a good sign. Anyone find any updates? (Edit because I can't spell)

    If it is not some technical problem with NAMUS, perhaps the UID page being down so long means that they are notifying family, and it could be taking some time to find relatives.

    Bumping for Yosemite Samantha Doe. Unusual for a page to be down this long without explanation, I hope some announcement of her identity is forthcoming.

    Doesn't necessarily mean anything; each page is controlled by that case's LE. Some agencies prefer to make the page invisible as soon as they have a possible match, while others leave it up until the match is confirmed and announced, just in case.

    I'm wondering who she was. Patricia's page still hasn't been taken down yet.

    Me too - I'm curious to know the UP's name. Is it usually up to the family's discretion when a name isn't released? Or is it possible the identification led to a re-opening of a cold case?

    It can be when there's no crime involved, for instance an accident victim or suicide, but usually a murder victim's identity will be released eventually. Since she was thought to be a murder victim, it's quite likely there's further investigation going on, and there could be issues with locating next of kin in a case this old.

    I think about Patricia and UP53329 almost every day - I hope if this was a positive match that some peace has come to her remaining relatives and her spirit. If the match was for someone else, I hope that family has gotten some peace.

    Jane Doe gets a brief mention in this article:

    Gabby Petito's Death Highlights Cold Case Mysteries at National Parks

    bbm.
    ... which brings me to something I've been meaning to say for a while and have been pointing out in several other threads: How certain are we that this Jane Doe has been identified? I don't want to sound like a Debbie Downer, -I would love to see her true name come back to her- but just because a NamUs page is down doesn't always mean the UID is identified, and the DoeNetwork has also been too hasty announcing IDs in the past to point where I would like to see some sort of official statement from LE/ME of said identification before popping the champagne, so to speak.

    IMHO/JMO

    I'm sure has been identified and, as in WCJD's case, NamUs removed her 1-2 days after the results came in and the family was notified. Someone is being hyperactive. They usually wait until the family is ready but not this time. The statement will come but it might take a while
