    Looking at the location the body was dumped, I wonder if she was missing from a neighboring state, AL, or, more likely, LA, and that is why she was never connected to a missing person at the time. Middle-aged and seemingly employed, somebody had to be missing her. My gut says she's more local than that, however. Most missing persons (according to estimates that I've seen) are not in NamUs. Hopefully someone will come forward soon.

    Edited to add: I was so happy to read that skeletal description, sounds like a real expert did the analysis. The care that is going into this case is top notch.
