    As of now the DNA testing making good progress considering the previous backlog.

    Results are "expected in April," coming from Akron PD.

    !

    Hopefully the profile is sufficient enough that another agency doesn't need to try again.

    Ice, you're back -- I thought you had dropped off of WS a while ago. So glad to see you, you've done so much work on this case. [emoji4]

    If the tests come back with the results we expect, it won't be necessary. Fingers crossed.

    Yeah, I was wondering how many months since her death until her body is fully skeletonized. I am searching women that vanished in early 1974. I think we have to use a date range and not an exact point in time since for a completely skeletonized body forensics establish like "from 1 to 2 years since her death" or something like that

    I believe all 3 women were looked in to, I know Sharon Pretorius for sure. I'm pretty sure Cross was too but I'm not familiar with her.

    Charlotte Brown was my immediate guess as I was familiar with her case. While she's not been ruled out, it's unlikely due to age since the UID is younger, and if the mo is the same he'd have killed her by stabbing too. I'm not positive but aren't pregnancies able to be seen on the skeleton? I don't think they found marks if so.

    Since we have a tentative match pending dna, I want to refrain from hoping it's these women or someone else. If -if- she's not a match, hopefully NamUs picks something up because I'd haven't a clue where to start next! Maybe Pennsylvania.

    Hi guys,
    I’m new on WS and this was one of the first cases I read. I was wondering is there any news on the results of the dna test. They were expected in April, it now June.

    UPDATE 11-Jul-2018 I just got word from Linda Pagano's family that the DNA comparison came back, and this 1975 Strongsville Jane Doe is in fact Linda Pagano, and her family has been notified.

    Linda's sister gave me the OK to make this announcement.

    I'm marking this thread a WS Match. Even though the Akron PD detective was the first to notice the potential connection, the case would have never come to his attention if not for the curiosity of WS member Ice190.

    That’s so awesome guys. She has a name again and her family can get some closure.

    Props to CarlK and Ice190. Ice's perseverance was unmatchable and Carl's work was dead on with the reconstruction.

    Rest In Peace lovely Linda and I pray for some solace for your family being able to bury you properly.

    I watched the presser, and was disappointed that they went around the horn to congratulate themselves, but didn’t say word #1 about the one person who was the prime mover in the resolution of this case - Christina Scates.

    If not for Christina’s curiosity, today’s press conference would not have taken place.

    It seems like it's a rare LE agency that wants to give any credit at all to a civilian contributor :p

    Typical cuyahoga county, they accomplish so little that when something goes right, everyone crawling up the ladder wants to take credit.
