    Families of missing women submit DNA to help identify skeletal remains found in Southeast Washington

    The medical examiner’s office told police that examiners think the women were 30 to 60 years old, Newsham said. Two had been shot; one suffered blunt force trauma. Their deaths have been ruled homicides.

    Two of the victims have been determined to be African Americans, the chief said. The race of the third is inconclusive.

    Newsham has said in the past that authorities do not know whether the homicides are related. He said investigators found some “personal items” at the scene but he would not elaborate. Because of damage to the skulls, police said they do not think facial reconstructions would be possible.

    On the radio show Thursday, Newsham said the lead detective has reviewed missing person reports of women from the area around the apartment building. He said investigators are awaiting test results from the FBI to determine whether there is a match to samples submitted so far.

    A spokeswoman for the D.C. medical examiner’s office confirmed that the femur bones had been sent to the FBI but had no other details.

    Well that age range of 30-60 rules out Relisha.

    Police testing DNA to try to identify 3 sets of human remains found in Southeast DC
    WASHINGTON - D.C. police said investigators have identified the race and approximate ages of two of the three sets of human remains found last month in Southeast D.C.

    Police are still patrolling this crime scene a month after one set of remains was found in a crawl space at an apartment building on Wayne Place while two other sets of remains were found nearby in a shallow grave in the woods.

    D.C. police said investigators have now determined that two of the victims are African American women between the ages of 30 and 60 and that their remains had been there for at least a year and possibly longer.

    Have they ever stated a maximum for the post-mortem interval?

    Much more at link: In 1984 she went missing. Could the skeletal remains found in a D.C. apartment crawl space in April belong to this mother?

    Buried at around the same time? Like someone kept them?

    Either kept the bodies or kept them alive...

    That’s horrifying. RIP Jewel, Verdell, and Dorothy. :(

    They all disappeared in 2006. If they were all buried in 2006, that would probably qualify as "around the same time."
