    Sadly, there are so many possibilities about who these women might be. :(

    This is near me. I just watched a brief presser on local TV.

    The street, Wayne Place that meets Mississippi Ave, is being renovated. A few years ago, they knocked down a similar apartment home and built up a new one. The rest are from the '40s to '60s. Lots of apartments on that street.

    A plumber found skeletal remains in the basement area while repairing plumbing in the apartment home. This led the local police to bring into cadaver dogs, which in turn, led to two more set of remains. The last two sets were outside near the apartment home, and they were buried together in a shallow grave. All sets were buried around the same time frame. They've been there for at least a year. They're confident DNA can be extracted. They're also working on separating the pair of remains' bones.

    SE Washington was really bad in the '80s, '90s, and '00s. It started when the crack epidemic happened. When Prince George County in the neighbouring state of MD, started to build up, many people fled from SE to Prince Geroge's county.

    These Apartments appear to be a government housing program called "The Wayne Place Project" that started in 2015:
    Prior to that program the buildings were vacant for 5 years:

    I wonder how detailed of records they kept on who lived there the past 3 years?
    Could these remains be from the 5 year period when the buildings were "vacant" -- 2010 - 2015 ish?

    I agree, I think the late 90’s were really bad. Many went missing from NW and SE and it was not uncommon for the possibility of multiple serial killers to have been working the entire DC area

    I think the remains may have been placed there when it was abandoned. less ppl around to see anything or smell anything.
