You’d have to think if this JD was identified in the years after she was found (pre internet and LSU faces) there would at least have been a story about it in the Times Picayune since there were several articles in the paper about the police investigation into her murder. Has anyone been able to search for any stories about this JD in newspaper archives?
No, unfortunately. I’ve been searching many angles and search words in the old newspapers and never did I find one beyond the ones (few actually) about trying to identify her. Which I find strange and sad.
Or as I hope, it is just my poor searching skills.
