    I feel such a connection to this girl because she looks so much like me and we are the same height. I feel that she may be related to the Rhodes character previously mentioned. I'd love for this woman to be identified...she deserved that.

    The only published photos were the ones of the two victims that Rhoades was convicted of kidnapping and killing. One of the Walsh girl and one of the Walters girl. Regina Walters' was the most circulated, that's how he was connected to their deaths. Neither were bound in the photos, but you could see they were frightened. I think the other photos were probably too "evil" to publish, such as bondage or during their torture and so I doubt investigators ever will put them out in public.
    The way this poor girl was bound and strangled is what made me think of Rhoades being her killer.....

    I do understand that often photos taken from killers can be graphic. I also understand that if those girls have not been identified then they have the right to be so......at the very least everybody should have the right to a name. I know how disgusting and horrible these kinds of pics can be......I also know what it like to wait for answers that do not come........trust me, pics are the least of the evils we have faced.

    I am inclined to agree with MadeaBecBec about that scar on her arm being a smallpox vaccination. Mine is just white with scar tissue, but my brother's has some pigmentation along with the scarring and looks remarkably similar to our unknown lady. Assuming it's around the size of a quarter -- it's hard to get a feel for the size from the photo but it doesn't look very big.

    after seeing the picture of that tattoo, i feel like it could be less helpful in finding her identity than i originally thought. i agree it looks similar to the small pox vaccination scar that i saw on aunts and uncles growing up, but its faintness and location, it's possible some important people to her didn't even know she had it, right?

    The tattoo looks to me like either 'JIM' or 'JH'.

    I think if that particular type of scar.....tattoo.....was listed among the missing, somebody would have found it by now.......there are so many of us searching to bring her home, I find it hard to imagine we all have missed it. It may be time to start searching just by criteria and date, can't do any harm at this point.......don't give up hope......we are still looking.....someone out there is looking for her..........

    Yeah, that's weird...but nothing else really matches very well.

    The tattoo reminds me of a story my Mom told me. When she was a teen in mid 70's, she had a homemade tattoo done on her hand. Something small. She said she instantly regretted it and knew she would be in a lot of trouble with her parents so she scrubbed out the ink. Since it was fresh she was able to get it all out but was left with a small scar.

    Possibly the same scenario here?

    2 thoughts on this....

    Could it be a branding w/ the "owners" initials? Since a lot of you are saying it looks more like a scar than a tattoo.

    Judas Priest had a pretty good following by 1976-maybe a fan?

    Interesting that NamUs uses an NCMEC recon while NCMEC uses a sketch that looks nothing like the recon IMO

    How many recons have they done?

    We can hope she was too drugged out to know what was happening to her.
