    Date found: June 5, 1993
    Location: Empty lot, Lafayette and Railroad, Bridgeport, CT (Fairfield Co.)
    Estimated age: 25-35
    Race: Black/African American

    Poor woman. :( My question is, where's her recon? Why is CT so terrible about recons?

    Also, most likely not related, but similar enough to mention: http://www.websleuths.com/forums/sh...-40-burning-in-tire-pile-no-hands-feet-May-85

    As a native nutmegger, I agree it is sad that there is so little info and fewer recons available for these UID cases from CT. We are (were?) a wealthy state but our fiscal management is terrible. Two examples: millions of taxpayer dollars are being sunk into the construction of a baseball stadium in downtown Hartford that may never be finished, and billions have been invested in new intercity buses that hardly anyone uses, yet our road surfaces are among the worst in the country. There is woefully little info in NAMUS as not enough money is earmarked for cold cases.

    On June 5, 1993, the severely burned body of a black female was found in a vacant lot at Lafayette Street and Railroad Avenue. She was estimated to be between five foot one and five foot four and the ages of 25 to 35. Because of the damage to her body the composite sketch pictured here may not be accurate.

    OMG! Thank you for finding this! (It made me realize I put the month wrong in the thread title. Oops...) ((EDIT: Thank u Carl for fixing it!))

    Bridgeport is a terrible area. "Bridgeport, Connecticut, violent crime, on a scale from 1 (low crime) to 100, is 81. Violent crime is composed of four offenses: murder and nonnegligent manslaughter, forcible rape, robbery, and aggravated assault. The US average is 41.4." http://www.bestplaces.net/crime/city/connecticut/bridgeport I'm not surprised that there's a lot of female murders. Actually, I'm surprised they don't have more UIDs.

    Dear Websleuths Members,

    WE ARE MOVING!

    If you have ever used the blogs on Websleuths and you want to keep what you wrote you will need to copy your blog posts ASAP. When we move to our new software the blog posts will not transfer over. I'm very sorry but there is nothing we can do. We tried but alas, you will lose your blog posts if you do not save them before we move.

    Monday, May 21[SUP]st[/SUP] at around 7:00 AM Eastern Websleuths will go down for hopefully no more than 48 hours. When we come back up, Websleuths will have a brand new look!

    You can discuss the move RIGHT HERE if you like.

    While we are down please check the Websleuths FACEBOOK PAGE and TWITTER ACCOUNT FOR UPDATES ON THE MOVE AND INFO ON THE LATEST BREAKING TRUE CRIME.

    Thank you,
    Tricia
