I believe this could be Jasmine Hardy. I posted this in Jasmine's thread.
I may be wrong but the remains were found 12 miles from where Jasmine was last seen
Using this map of where Jasmine was last seen, marked with the "a" the remains were found about 12 (not 5) miles away in Glendale.
Prayers for her family
Agreed. It could be Jasmine. They did imply in the news that it was an adult female, but the reports are so preliminary at this point that they could be wrong. I hope someone recognizes the rings and comes forward soon.
Jasmine is a tall girl at 5'8 ... that's tall for being 15, I think. She looks a bit husky/muscular and could be big boned but I can't tell from the picture exactly what she looks like from the neck down.
She hardly got any media attention
I texted Crime stoppers with no response. I wrote to the author of the article and they made it sound like I "know something". I don't, I just did research
Geez, no one is going to want to call in a tip if they're going to think we "know something"
That is terrible! They should be happy with any tips. What a shame. I also read that they thought the body had been there since July, but I don't know why they assumed that. If that's the case then it would not be Jasmine. And I agree about her not getting any coverage. The only reason I knew who she was is b/c I read the news all day long. So sad!
Sure hope it gets figured out quickly.
so do we have an age range, stature and date of death yet?
As yet unidentified:

Remains found in wooded area, directly to the west of Interstate 75 southbound entrance ramp, and south of Princeton High School.
Possible healed fracture of left ankle (distal left fibula). Lower limb bones showed very unusually well-developed muscle attachment sites suggesting very active biomechanical stress of some duration in the lower limbs.
Gray sweatpants (Fruit of the Loom, size XL); underwear band from men's underwear, cotton cloth had disintegrated (Fruit of the Loom, size M); white bra; remnants of a sequined top (Faded Glory Women's); white or gray socks
Green and blue gym shoes (Sketcher's Retro, size unknown).
All teeth in the upper jaw were missing antemortem.
Both nuclear and mitochondrial DNA available
The two links in the original post no longer work.
The link you posted with the NamUs info does, thank you for posting it.
It would be nice if they would release pics of the rings at least, wouldn't it?
It's very frustrating to me sometimes that the press does not allow Missing Persons reports to be copied in full and then they are not available later on their own site.
Thanks again Donjeta
There's a pic of the rings at the link:
what is odd is that this woman appears to have been an athletic woman and was wearing sweatpants. it is almost as if she was snatched while out on a power walk and dumped on the side of the highway.
I looked up I-75 and according to Wikipedia, it travels through 6 states - Florida, Georgia, Tennessee, Kentucky, Ohio and Michigan. The UID does not appear to be local to OH so I'm going to see what I can find along the other states in terms of matches.
Faded Glory is a clothing brand that is sold only at Walmart.

Article shows the images.
Article states these remains are listed on NAMUS (no case# given).
That's Glendale Ohio, not Glendale California.
There was already a thread for this Jane Doe, so I merged them.
Couple of MPs might fit:
Ericka Thomas, missing since 10/08. Taller than our Doe, but went missing from another part of Ohio.
Faith VanNortrick, missing since 9/04 from OK, but sounds like she could have gone anywhere.
The following people have been ruled out as being this decedent:
Sharon Apgar 1966 Ohio
Patricia Hubbard 1954 Kentucky
Suzanne Lyall 1978 New York
Sheila Main 1969 Ohio
Judith ODonnell 1961 New York
Parley Pate 1959 North Carolina
Elizabeth Rogers 1931 North Carolina
Laurie Steiner 1952 Missouri
Margaret Warrington 1962 Kentucky
Photos of rings and shoe are now also on NamUs
