I was browsing missing people from IL on theyaremissed.org, and when I started reading Cynthia's page something just clicked. The place she was last seen.... I had seen a DoeNetwork page that said the UID was found near a street with the same name. The citys were different though...the UID in Brooklyn IL and Cynthia in Fairmont IL. So I google mapped it.... It's the same street! Not only that, but it's the same block!
http://www.google.com/maps Should take you to a google map of the area. You can see just how close Brooklyn IL is to Fairmont IL.
Just in case anyone is wondering, Route 3 is the same as St.Clair Ave.
I remember reading about a case- where the lady was supposedly driving with relatives a husband and an aunt or cousin and went missing after their car broke down. I remember she had a colostomy bag. And it seems like she was either Hispanic of native American.
I am going to check and see what I can find out.
Does anyone else remeber this??
Ok found it .
It is on here under Missing But Not Forgotten.
Rhonda went missing from Alberta canada, so it's way off.
The colostomy bag just stuck out in my head.
Brooklyn Township is in Schuyler County, not Brooklyn. I have hunted all over that area for over 30 years & hadn't heard about this. There is a lot of open farm ground but a lot of the terrain is very rugged to say the least. If someone would dump a body in that area, I believe it would be a local person & the victim would have been missed & searched for. The county roads wind everywhere & you really need to know where you are driving. I believe this is really Brooklyn, Illinois in St. Clair County hence the street address. Brooklyn is down by St. Louis where it would make more sense for an unidentified body to be found. It is also close to Fairmont but I believe this is a body dump out of or through the St. Louis area. If it was Brooklyn Township, that would creep me out a bit. I hope this helps.
I don't live very far from Brooklyn in St.Clair County, and there is a St.Clair Ave. that runs right through/on the border of the Brooklyn in St.Clair County. Right away I assumed they were actually referring to St.Clair County, not Schuyler County, because of St.Clair Ave. and the fact that the number to call with information is a 618 area code which covers southern IL. If I'm not mistaken, Schuyler County has a different area code. Tomorrow I'm going to call the number listed on the DoeNetwork page to have them clarify which county is the correct one, and to inquire about weather or not Cynthia was ever compared to this UID.
You are correct on the area code. I missed that. I'm sure it's St. Clair County. It would be pretty big news if it was in Schuyler County. I thought about it though & because of the terrain, you could hide a body pretty easy in Schuyler & it wouldn't be found. I creeped myself out on that point.
I also found this bit interesting:
Do we already have a cold case thread on that case? Guess I need to look and see.
I know we have a thread on that case... just not sure under which forum.
ETA- The UID could be from St.Louis, but it's also likely that the UID was from East St.Louis. Just to give you guys an idea of what the area is like, It's so bad that my boyfriend won't even drive through there in the middle of the day. We drove over to St.Louis earlier today, and took the "long way" to get where we were going, even though it would have been quicker to drive through East St.Louis.
Any idea the distance between where the remains were found and the location in Canada that Rhonda disappeared from? Seems too coincidental not to look into it. Has anyone here reported the two posibilities to authorities?
ETA: Sable, where did you get that story on the remains? Is there any LE agency reported as investigating?
I confess that I tried lookig it up on mapquest, but I am completely ignorant on that part of the country. It kept pulling up other Brookyn's, not Il, and counldn't find directions to Alberta either. I am very curious to see how far that is too.
If the body was in fact found in St.Clair County, it's about 2,587 miles from where Rhonda disappeared.
I got the information on the UID from DoeNetwork. http://doenetwork.org/cases/533ufil.html

Brooklyn, Illinois (Jane Doe Found)
Chicago, Illinois (Baker drives here the next day)
It's a good possible match (except for the colostomy bag thing). I'd call it in; however, I'd be hard pressed to believe that they haven't compared these two yet.

I know this is probably way off, but the colostomy bag rang a bell I knew I read something about that before.. so anyone have an opinion.. I know sometimes age, weight and height can be off.. http://www.doenetwork.org/cases/1494dfab.html

Here's a side by side pic Rhonda on the left!
Has anyone called in the possibility of Rhonda being IL JD? I came across the colostomy bag connection and was going to call it in. I'll wait and see if someone did it already. Just let me know, if possible. TIA
I have also considered Ms. Runningbird for the UF before, but I haven't called it in- when you do (I think she is worth a shot with so little info to go on), please let me know. Thanks!!:run:
