    Here's a UID I found in Namus while searching for info regarding another recent new thread from Missouri that I was looking at.

    Here's her link in Namus:

    https://identifyus.org/en/cases/10523

    Unrecognizable-Charred/burned
    Estimated @ 110 lbs and 64 inches
    DNA has been submitted although not too much other info.

    I couldn't locate her in the Doe ntwk. anywhere.

    mercifully they got DNA for this UID because they don't have anything else given the condition of her remains.

    I wonder what makes the authorities believe she was kidnapped? I mean kidnapping is a very uncommon crime and even more uncommon among adults.

    This would be near Springfield, MO. Thats not far from the Arkansas Stare line. I a,so noticed it mentioned the UID had dentures. They must be full plates, top and bottom because no information was entered in the dental chart.

    The article is over a year old.

    It is obvious that these remains are those of Linda Riley, but they still have both the MP case and the UID case in Namus.

    The NamUs casefile indicates mtDNA available. And they have blood from the crime scene which they have said is her blood. They should be able to make a positive ID.

    This is almost certain to be Linda Riley, so I am going to flag this thread Identified, even though they don't haven't closed the casefiles.

    I don't know why it even got into Namus. he admitted killing Riley and then took them to the fire pit where he burned her body. they did not know they had a dead body until he led them to it so this was not a case where they found nameless remains.

    I am wondering why it was entered into Namus as well. Is it because they needed DNA comparisons done? The info was entered in August last year, so, very strange!
    Here's Linda Riley's photo:

    have we gotten to the point now where LE can't or won't close out an unidentified file and a MP file without DNA when a man admits to murdering someone, providing the victim's name and details of the crime, and then take them to a place where the disposed of the body?
