    I just read the entire article on Connie’s case. Her brother says he’s convinced that Little Miss X is in fact his long missing sister. Apparently a lot of the dental characteristics matched Connie’s such as the fact that both had gaps in their teeth. Connie’s dentist was also convinced it was Connie because he said his dental work was on the UIDs teeth. The one thing that proved inconclusive was a tiny thing on her tooth that could’ve been natural or from surgery. They say that a simple DNA test between these two could solve Connie’s 66 year old disappearance.

    I believe this might have been brought up previously.

    From this article: “Clothes, a comb, jewelry and a nail-file case were found nearby.”

    Did LE preserve/store away these important items? Did anyone research/investigate their location? Might those items jog a memory of any living family members? Do ya think? All IMO MOO.

    Anyway it seems as though authorities are also convinced the remains are those of Connie. I hope her Disappearance is solved soon!

    After reading the full thread and other sources on the case, I'm pretty well in the camp of those who believe Connie Smith and Little Miss X to be one and the same. I somehow feel the Arizona murder story to be credible (in its end if not in every detail) and a mistake to have been made in dismissing it and the original examiner's evidence then, as well as in discarding the files and losing (how I wonder) the bones of X.
    Just when we need them too, we don't have them. The case will never be solved unless those files and bones, both so stupidly tossed out, are again found. Maybe one, but not likely the other.
    I believe that it should be against the law for files on missing persons, even a century old, to be tossed. If storage is a problem, for heaven's sake, get a scrap van or box trailer and park it out back. Geeze. It's not as though law enforcement is struggling or anything.

    I have not posted on this thread for a very long time but in the past I was very active here. My interest, research, following, collecting and contributing to this thread has propelled this case along. I wondered how Connie Smith/Little Miss X and Donnis Redman cold cases could have become entwined. After all, where could Connie have been for the couple of years before the remains called Little Miss X were found? Connie had a strong personality, I can't imagine her not raising a fuss going home. She wouldn't have put up with riding around in a car for months with some strangers who picked her up in Connecticut and then left her remains being near a tree in northern Arizona.

    Tomorrow, July 16th will mark 67 years since Connie walked away from her summer camp in Connecticut. And as far as I know, not one of her tent mates or anyone else for that matter, who was there when she was, have ever come forth with information on what might have happened that day or the days leading up to her being so angry, she'd walk from the camp to the nearby town. Her mother visited her at camp for her birthday the Sunday before. The story goes she asked her mother if she could spend another week at camp. (Was that a true statement or something put out in the newspaper of the time? If she was having issues at camp, she wouldn't have wanted to stay. Something transpired after her birthday a few days before that drove her to walk away so early that morning. Was she looking to find someone to tell her trouble to or use a telephone? She could have asked any of the persons she spoke to when she stopped to ask direction to town about using their phone to call. Something else must have been going on.)

    I can't help but wonder, did something happen that has the tent mates scared to come forward with any information about their time at Camp Sloane in Lakeville, CT with Connie? Are there any family members who may have heard the story from someone who was at the camp. There is a story to tell, but who will share?

    It may not be someone from camp did anything to Connie, but maybe heard talk or gossip that could unlocking some part of the story no one has knows. Connie would be 77 years old today. That means other campers would be about that age too. It's time to share people. The Smith family has suffered too long no knowing what happened. Please share what you know or maybe don't know, but come forth.

    Other persons knows stories about the area and people who lived there, that is a common thread of living in a small town. What was it like in the Northwest Hills of Connecticut in the 1950's? That information alone could be helpful. I am sure there's been talk about what might have happened to Connie. Other events may have been similar or made one wonder.

    It's possible that whomever was involved has already died. But just maybe someone can still pass along something to solve - "What happened to Connie Smith."

    Thinking and bumping for Connie Smith and her family this day.
