    I would hope her surviving family would have some input as to how this is handled. If they're satisfied with DDP's finding, then that would be good enough for me.

    We will see....lost my patience...and learned...from WS, and other things..the time it takes to solve a case...Always think of LE (and individuals amongst them) waiting.......if this is your "pet"case (and it sounds so not ok)......it's sound horrible....

    The waiting is the hardest part. Patience has never been one of my strengths.

    Maybe her agency is doing an official DNA test through a lab... that can sometimes take forever if there's a backlog. This is my feeling based on DDP saying that proof of identity is different for each department.

    I've noticed that - proof of identity is different for each agency.
    Some in CA will accept pictures/talking videos showing teeth, and one case that was solved by the MP's family providing a description of a distinguishing mark not released to the public, also CA. All a far cry from DNA.

    Not only that I’ve seen a lot of reconstructions that look nothing like the victim. Some are similar but sometimes they have very little to work with nothing personal Carl although I will say the one you did of Marcia king aka buckskin girl was the only one I’ve ever seen that was almost identical to her in reality. I was amazed

    I think a lot of CarlK's recons have turned out to be pretty darned close, in some cases more than the computer generated ones.

    Washoe County has to make sure they’ve crossed all their T’s and dotted the I’s. It is coming. The wait is the hardest part. There was a Jane Doe identified for Washoe back in May and she’s still on their page as being unidentified. It takes some time.

    I expect it's taking them a long time because they are busy setting up a mega-press conference, like the one for Buckskin Girl, with dozens of LE agencies, and DNA experts. They are trying to get them all together at one time, so they can all pat themselves on the back and congratulate each other. Then when it is done, they will all go home and forget about the case. Because, sadly I think they have zero interest in actually solving these 40 year old cases. :(

    BBM for focus
    That may be true for some, but investigators in my state recently solved a 36 year old murder case. It wasn't for lack of interest that it took so long, but lack of evidence or anything solid to go on. The victim's family also kept on the case, reminding them.
    I also think BG's investigators are interested in solving her murder. They never gave up on identifying her, either.
    As for the rest, you may be right, but I think it may be unfair to generalize.
