    Unfortunately BOH there are no rule outs listed for this UID in which leads me to wonder if the DNA is being maintained by the local LE and was not uploaded to NAMUS. We have seen this before and given the fact there are no rule outs listed is very odd.

    This woman went missing from LA in 1985

    Susan Oliver Scott
    Missing since August 7, 1985 from Baton Rouge, East Baton Rouge Parish, Louisiana
    Classification: Endangered Missing





    Vital Statistics

      • Date Of Birth: July 30, 1956
      • Age at Time of Disappearance: 29 years old
      • Height and Weight at Time of Disappearance: 5'4"; 90 lbs.
      • Distinguishing Characteristics: White female. Brown hair; brown eyes.
      • Distinguishing Characteristics: White sweater, jeans, blue sandals with 1 inch heel.
      • DNA: Available






    Circumstances of Disappearance
    Scott was last seen on August 7, 1985. She laid out her clothes for the next day, set her alarm clock, climbed into bed and then vanished in the middle of the night.
    Her car was found in the Amite River Diversion Canal five weeks later. The keys were in the ignition, but there was no sign of Scott. Sheriff's deputies dragged the canal but never found a body.
    Scott was the mother of two young children who were in their father's custody. She apparently left her Berryville Street home of her own free will, but investigators don't know what lured her out of bed in the middle of the night.

    She was found (according to Namus) in the
    Escatawpa River Marsh Coastal Preserve
    Moss Point, MS 39563, USA. Could she be the victim of a flood?

    The same person I chatted with was also going to contact LE along with several other cases. With the storm a few weeks back may have gotten pushed back. But anyone could contact them the detective is the one that is going through the old cold cases. The paper work for this UID was destroyed or lost according to the news article and NAMUS. Anyone could contact all thou it may be preferred to be a person of the local Jackson County , MS area.

    Yeah, I was thinking that with this kind of question, local people usually get better responses.

    Confusing huh? Partial or not?

    Details of Recovery

    Inventory of Remains All parts recovered
    Condition of Remains Not recognizable - Partial skeletal parts only

    Also ". Paperwork identifying her has been destroyed" so was she identified originally? And then what? Strange

    Considering the bathing suit and the Jackon County climate, it's hard to size down the period she could have gone missing. The high temperatures are almost the whole year fit for swimming, except for Jan, Feb, March, Nov, Dec.
