    Lori Bruski replied and told me that Carlita wore an upper denture. So if true, this would not be Carlita.

    Is it possible that Carlita wore a partial denture and didn't wear it all of the time? The UID was missing quite a few teeth in her upper jaw antemortem. Carlita also looks young for 56.

    Lori Bruski said that she was going to look further into it anyway, despite that the dentals seem inconsistent. The Jane Doe is missing most of the upper teeth on her left side, so it is possible that her upper denture might have only been a partial upper denture.
