    Unfortunately, per NamUs, fingerprints, dental, and DNA information is currently not available for Goodson. I am not sure how much stock to put into the clothing description since different accounts have her in either a pink or blue shirt.

    I haven't yet found information on what time the UID was struck by the train, but one of the articles linked above says Goodson disappeared at 4 p.m. Queens, NY is a good 15-17 hours away from Russellville, AL per Google Maps. I wonder who supposedly gave Goodson a ride out of town. It seems a stretch to think a stranger just happened to be on their way to New York and gave her a 1,000 mile ride overnight. And yet, it seems strange that she wanders off and just happens to find a ride that heads out to a highway and to this day, has not been identified when there was media coverage locally.

    I was just about to post Yu Chin! The history of mental illness does seem consistent. The time frame is pretty narrow, although it would be possible for her to travel to NY by plane and possibly car within that time span. I like how you formatted your post, by the way, with the comparison.

    Credit to CarlK for the table comparison idea. I saw it in one of his recent posts and liked it, but couldn't seem to get grid lines to show up without the table breaking. Baby steps!

    Do you all think the multiple clothing layers suggests homelessness? Seemed like an awful lot of clothes to me.

    Yeah, I think that's extremely likely. It was probably chilly in NY in March, but few people who have a closet and a warm place to go to at night are going to wear 2 jackets over 2 shirts and 2 pairs of pants. So sad...
