My personal theory is that Laureen was seen restocking the wine coolers in exchange for the beers and wine that she and her friends drank later that night.
Thank you so much for releasing a podcast about Laureen's disappearance. I have been following her case for a long time. A lot of info you released I have never heard. Thanks again!
By any chance has this Jane doe been ruled out as Laureen?
Thank you! Let me know if you have any questions for me based on my research. I'm just now checking back in here. Love that photo of the Rosebud Superette.
Thank you for listening! Of course! I really did some digging on this one. Please let me know if you have any questions on any of the research. I also reached out the coroner's office about the Arroyo Grande doe and they said there were no public updates on her identity, just an FYI.
hello, any news or response on this?
Bumping for Laureen, today is her birthday.
Happy birthday Laureen!
Where was this statement? Do you have a link? I've tried googling for this info.
Both have dentals and DNA available. The system automatically checks for a match. I understand submitting a possible match if you truly think a mistake was made, but it’s very unlikely it could be a match due to the system automatically checking for matches.
Which system automatically checks for a match in dentals? I have never heard of that. Not only that but a forensic anthropologist from Oregon last year wrote that Namus does not have the capability to check DNA matches against everyone in the system. It is done one to one based on the parameters they have (date missing, date found, distance, clothing, tattoos etc etc) CODIS checks DNA against other DNA in CODIS but NamUs does not. Here is her post from last June:
Obstructions to matching the missing and UID -Q&A's/FAQ's only please!
Sorry, I should have been more specific. Both are in CODIS. CODIS automatically checks for matches. The link that you provided, look at post 47 which confirms that DNA is automatically checked for matches in CODIS.
Correct, NAMUS cannot automatically check for matches.
@Feme98 I'm curious about the more recent Kristen statement too. What new info was there?
I remember reading it from an article, apparently ‘Kristen’ was Laureen’s friend and from her comment, Kristen and Laureen met 2 guys that night, one was 18, the other 21.
The 18 year old worked at the store and got them the alcohol. I’m unsure if the 18 year old was at the apartment that night.
Kristen thinks that Laureen left with one of the guys that night.
Here is an article (the one I read was from Reddit): The disappearence of Laureen Rahn
Thank you...my gut feeling was always that there were older boys who could get a hold on the alcohol. We still don't know if the boys were both there that night....in the podcast there was at least one (called Brad, just to get him a name) and he took his life afterwords....Kristen knows more IMO
It’s possible, I hope that Laureen’s case gets solved, for her family and her friends.
Laureen has been missing for 41 years today.
