Last week I contacted the OPP to ask if Dumba was ruled out. Today I received this email back.
"Be advised that Elaine DUMBA has previously been eliminated as our found human remains in Rockwood ON."
Could she be Tammy Churcher?
"Tammy CHURCHER was last seen in the Province of Quebec, Canada, in December 2003. Tammy's home was in Courtland, Ontario, near Tillsonburg (southeast of London, Ontario)."
Her home was only an hour and a half away from where the remains were located. (Map attached below.)
My Theory: I think If this is Tammy she might have been hitchhiking back home from her last destination. I have always thought there was a truck driver in the Ontario area that is targeting women (for example the Bowmanville jane doe). The body in Rockwood was found near a resting station frequently used by truckers and motorist.
I wish OPP would release the dental view of the dental plate with the other teeth. The two teeth on their own have limited value. The reconstruction in clay is well done but it has such a generic look, the features could be just about anyone.
If am not sure if it is just me, but sometimes the clay recons are so non-descript that I lose interest in looking at it. I mean who has clay hair??
Who is the Rockwood Jane Doe? Remains of woman still unidentified as 10th anniversary approaches
Waterloo Region Record
By May Warren
GUELPH It's been 10 years since she was found under a sleeping bag in the woods, just off a rest stop west of Rockwood, outside of Guelph.
Police don't know who she was or how she died.
She's still "Jane Doe," without a family or a face....
"What we need is for someone to say to us, 'Look we have this missing female, can you check your database and see if any of your unidentified bodies match,'" Gruspier said.
Rockwood's Jane Doe is one of 286 people in the database, which dates back to 1964.
"We still would love to know who she is, we'd love to identify her," Gruspier said, adding tips can be submitted directly on the public website the database feeds, to the OPP, or through Crime Stoppers.
"We follow every one up and if we can't exclude the possibility based on biology, age, race or something like that, then we'll go for DNA or dental records," she said.
"We never ignore a tip. No matter how bizarre it may seem."...
CIRCUMSTANCES: On Aug. 28, 2005 the remains of a woman, aged between 25 and 45 years old were found off a rest stop near Rockwood, Ont.

Cops call the death suspicious with the earmarks of a body dump and foul play is believed to be involved.
DESCRIPTION: White, 5-foot-4 to 5-foot-6, 130 pounds, average build with brown hair.
Chilliwack RCMP investigators are asking for public help to generate new tips in their search for Tammy Penner who was last seen in January, 2005.
