    The shape of the face of this Jane Doe kinda matches, but Jane Doe is listed as 4" shorter than Amanda. Amanda's glasses in the photo do not appear tinted so am unsure.

    Looks like a possibility. Height & weight estimates could be off a little on the remains found.

    The Jane Doe is not Amanda. The above article gives a really detailed account of the search for Amanda. So sad - I hope she's found soon. [​IMG]

    Amanda left her family's residence in Orangefield, Texas during the early morning hours of April 28, 1991. She took all of her personal belongings and emptied her parents' wallets. That same night, another neighborhood fried of Amanda's also ran away. A year later, the friend returned home, but refused to say where they had been. She may travel to California or Washington.

    May Amanda Rest in Peace. Her story is so sad, and I hope her daughter will be able to at last form a bond with her maternal grandmother.

    That article was well-written, but I'm still wondering how Amanda's body was released for burial if LE didn't have (I assume) her real SSN or identifying information. Likewise, how did she get prenatal care and hospitalization when she had her daughter? One of the photos shows her shortly after she gave birth to her daughter in what is clearly a medical setting, i.e. not a home birth.

    Greetings! I am a new registered user, long-time lurker. I've signed up specifically to ask questions and learn more so I can be a more effective volunteer. Please, let me know if anything I do or say is out of line so I can prevent any misstep in the future. Thanks!

    Now, the reason I chose to post here is due to some confusion over this specific case. I noticed Amanda Slaughter is still listed as missing in Namus and tippers are still submitting her for DNA comparison. I've read the same article listed by a previous post and a few other sites including CharleyProject. Most sites show her as located and deceased. So, I am a bit confused as to why she is still listed in Namus. My question is this: Does Amanda Slaughter (Mandy Fouts) have a reason to still be listed? From what I have read, all body parts were found in one location and she only had one child - also, accounted for and alive. Also, this thread is still open and not updated as located... So, am I missing something?

    Thank you, in advance, for your time and consideration to my question!
