Thrilled to see the heading on this thread marked as “Resolved.”
Not second guessing or being cheeky, just trying to understand the usual procedures for such tagging.
- Is adding this tag something that only the Mods can do?
- Is there a subtext to the choice of tags used? I’ve seen these used in the Identified Forum: Match!, Resolved, and Identified. Are they used interchangeably?
- Was the Resolved status assumed based on the disappearance of this UID’s NamUs profile, or was there some confirmation from LE?
I understand that neither this community, nor the public at large, is privy to any information that individuals or LE choose not to make public. PBSO may or may not release a press statement for the Singer Island Doe. These remains are all that is left of a precious human life and their dignity and that of their living kin is paramount.
Progress with DNA identification has taken off with unparalleled success. I wonder if, as the frequency increases, the novelty and perhaps the perceived “newsworthiness” of releasing this information will decrease? It’s been hard to keep up of late.
