Circumstances of Disappearance
Swann was last seen in Birmingham, United Kingdom in early 1974. At the time she had been staying with one of her brothers in Birmingham. Elizabeth told him she had accepted a receptionist job in Gloucester. She said she intended to hitch-hike there to take it up. Elizabeth was never heard from again.
Here's a hypothetical for Elizabeth... She's from England, so this is quite a stretch. But, perhaps she was abducted from England and brought to the United States (for prostitution?), possibly to New York City. She somehow was able to get away from her abductors and made her way to Massachusetts/Cape Cod area. Or her abductors brought her there. And at some point she encountered the killer.
What strikes me is the resemblance of Elizabeth to this reconstruction, particularly the long nose, the chin, the mouth, the shape of the face. I admit, though, that the photo of Elizabeth is not the best view:
I can only speculate about how to explain details like the gold teeth. Perhaps Elizabeth could have had dental work done in the U.S., although who would pay for such expensive work? Her abductors?
Long shot, guys! But what do you think? Here is the link to the Lady of the Dunes on DoeNetwork again: http://doenetwork.org/cases/119ufma.html
Well, just taking in account that she was headed for Gloucester. It seems more probably that fell victim to Frederick and Rosmary West.
