    Simone Stephanie Ridinger has been talked about in several UID cases on this board. Two that I've personally worked on were Irondequoit Jane Doe (found 1988 near Rochester, NY) and Granby/Swan Jane Doe (found 1978 in western MA). Ridinger was ruled out on both of those but we need to double check on Irondequoit because some rule outs appear to be false.

    There's a very good video with new information on Ridinger's case at Fox News Boston.

    Did you hear anything more on this? I think it looks like a very promising match.

    I have noticed on several websites that Ms Ridinger was a possible match for the Pennsylvania Jane Doe but I can't find any confirmation anywhere that this has been looked into. Does anyone know if LE is looking into this? The jewelry & general statistics seem to match well. The artist's sketch makes the Jane Doe look a bit older than Ms Ridinger but I don't think we can discount it because of that. I often think that age progressions look older than what the progressed age would really look like, for example. Such as age progressing someone to 40 years old. I'm 40 & to me they often look 50 or more in the artist's renderings. I'd like to know if any DNA testing or anything has been done to compare these two.

    From the fox link: The reference is to Detective Crosson
    "He is now sending Simone’s dental records to a national database."

    Dental records are available for Jane Doe/PA. The magic question is if they are in the NCIC database...I will see if I can find out.

    Here is Jane Doe's NAMUS listing- I sent it to Detective Crosson to see if he had already reviewed the possible match. As you can see at the link, Simone is not listed for comparison.
    https://identifyus.org/cases/5166

    There is DNA for both and dental records for both, BUT Jane Doe's lower jaw was not located during the exhumation, so the prior examination could not be verified.

    I will update as soon as I can!

    Has anyone looked at 531ufco @ doe network as a possible match for Simone? Right age range, hair, height, weight and LOTS of jewelry. Let me know what you think. Thanks guys!

    Bummer-she is not in NAMUS/IdentifyUS that I can find. ETA: I would email the detective and ask if there is DNA and dental records available. I would also ask if she is listed in the NAMUS database for John and Jane Doe's.
