    I've registered from several other threads here that the locations NamUs operates with, are often erroneous. Since so little is mentioned about her and USF is pinpointed as her location, I believe that they have simply used the location where her remains has been stored.

    Btw, it has crossed my mind that perhaps LE don't have her original file anymore, and have lost the information of her original date and place of discovery.

    Have they compared her to Michaela Garecht? I'm not certain this may be her, but I wanted to rule her out anyway.

    For convenience (please put in a link next time :)) Michaela Joy Garecht – The Charley Project Read her case and I don't see it.

    I'm very curious to know what kind of identifiers they have for this UID. Where are the rule outs based on? I hope somebody has some inside information on this.

    Could this Jane Doe be the remains of Wendy Huggy? She was a little older, 16, when she went missing in 1982 from Clearwater, FL. (29 minutes drive to Tampa) Wendy Lynn Huggy – The Charley Project

    My opinion - any decent possibility should be submitted so the experts can decide whether to look into it further. There's just not enough to go on to rule them out ourselves. I think face shape and nose seem similar...

    Tinze Huels was the first person I thought of as well. Age is a little higher than the estimate, but she was still a teen. (We've seen estimates be way farther off than that).

    Tammy Akers and Angela Rader went missing from VA and were reportedly last seen hitchhiking together to FL. It's a long shot due to time, distance (FL is pretty darn large and who knows if they even made it that far), and if this is one of the girls, where is the other?? But they were both only 14, which does match the age range here.
    I just think of Tammy Jo Alexander being found so far from home... But there is also suspicion that both girls were killed by someone they knew, and much closer to home. A complicated story.... Tammy Lynn Akers – The Charley Project

    And I always think of Angela Ramsey and wonder what on earth happened to her. The National Missing and Unidentified Persons System (NamUs)
    Angela Ramsey was last seen in Deland, though, and that's like 2 hours from Tampa. Her dentals are fairly unique, so I would think they could rule her out if the UID remains have the front teeth intact

    He may be busy. I'll touch base with him again and see if he is looking into this. I know he's usually really good about getting back to me.

    I do not believe the remains were found at USF; rather, I think they are "owned" by the USF forensic lab (explanation for the unique ID number) and were entered on behalf of Hernando County.

    I think there's a possibility that this case is related to the several sets of incomplete unidentified remains found on Billy Mansfield's property in Weeki Wachee in 1981. Here's reporting from the 1981 dig. The investigator for Hernando County is the same and the NamUs entries read very similarly. Those "co-mingled" remains were also dated to the late 1970s, which makes the current rule-outs make sense for this UID. In addition, the UID from this thread (USF19-018) has a sequential USF ID that suggests they are from the same lot as this other Weeki Wachee UID (USF19-017) found on Mansfield's property.

    To make your day even worse, Hernando County is STILL in the process of finding bodies on the property.

    That would make sense and explain why the two counties are collaborating. Was Billy, his dad William, brother Gary and Robby Mansfield known to troll beaches and malls for victims? Sure looks like dad lead the way..... albeit the wrong way.

    Fourth buried body identified as missing woman
    Snip:
    "Mansfield's father, William, was sentenced to 30 years in prison in November for sex crimes involving young girls, but Sheriff's Maj. C.E. Crosby said he was not now a suspect in the deaths of the bodies recovered so far.

    A second son, Gary Mansfield, 23, is also in jail in Santa Cruz, charged with being an accessory to the murder there, and a third son, Robby Mansfield, 18, was arrested Tuesday and jailed in Brooksville on a charge of burglary of a dwelling and grand theft of a rifle from a home near Brooksville."
