    This will be a tough one. Many aggravating circumstances are in play.
    At lest one victim was misidentified all those years ago, but that could also be a clue if they have documentation on identified victims.

    Apparently, only six victims were unidentified and only six people remain missing.

    The article below includes quotes from a granddaughter of one missing woman and a man who wrote a book about the fire.

    Circus fire’s lingering mystery: DNA may solve woman’s quest to find out her grandmother’s fate

    “Clearly someone saw Fifield’s burned body at the armory and thought it matched who they were looking for, and they claimed the wrong body,” Skidgell said. “I think this happened several times, which is why after the bodies were all claimed they were left with six unidentified bodies and six missing persons but they didn’t match up, of course.”

    168 people died in this tragedy. The tragedy sadly feels forgotten IMO. I hope they enlist this man's help.
    Extracting a viable sample will be the toughest part for sure. Documentation could be very abundant for all we know.

    I’m almost afraid of what additional questions an identification now might bring up. I feel like she may be right in that the final “figures” just happened to match up. I am certainly anxious about this one(s)!

    So, check this out. The Hartford Circus Fire has a dedicated internet page with troves of information.
    The Hartford Circus Fire ~ July 6, 1944
    If you want to see the graphic images, including these two women's burned remains, the password is 1565.
    BTW, is there a thread on these Does ?

    They have a new case from Kentucky, Grant County John Doe from 1989. This was a homicide victim.
    There is also an update on Apache Junction Jane Doe. They need help so they released some information.
