    Tammy Risenhoover
    I spoke with Det. Loveall today re: the possibility of Tammy being a match.

    She said she did not have DNA for Tammy; however she said she had obtained DNA from several familiy members and had sent it to the U of No. Texas Health Center for processing and entry into CODIS in June 2008.

    She did not know what the status was today.

    She was very appreciative of any help - said she had "many, many" cases to try to close.

    What is my next step with this one?

    I can't access the pictures of Tammy for some reason....keep getting a message that I don't have permission to access.


    I will try to contact the Tulsa PD this week and see what I can find out...

    Possible Matches
    I have not heard back from det. Coffman (e-mail) re: a possible match for Princess Blue - maybe I should call? I am concerned re: following "protocol" - don't want to come off like a weird amateur, but want to move these possibles along...what should I do???

    Ive done a side by side for you and I definitely think you are on to something here

    Especially given the new stats.

    [​IMG]

    And after all given that they did that sketch from a skeleton.....it may well not be perfect..

    Good job I reckon this is a good possibility

    Also, I found this case - it says Tammy was 26, but she was really only 20 in 1984 when she actually went missing...her familiy didn't report her missing until 1990.... if she was traveling with a motorcycle gang, she could have easily wound up in Houston....

    I think the picture looks like Princess Blue - what do you all think? (Sorry, I don't know how to do the picture side-by-side thing - or even get the pic to post....)

    Thank you Jane.

    I just e-mailed Sgt Coffman at Manvel PD again - if I don't hear from him, I'll call.

    Do you know if there is another angle to approach this from - since Det. Loveall in Tulsa has submitted DNA on Tammy and I think there is DNA available from Princess Blue - maybe there is something else we could be doing?

    I agree. Tammy does look like a good possibility. Do you have the side by side you could post for us JaneInOz?

    The photos did not show up for me previously. I can see them now though. Thank you for taking the time to do the side by side for us. Tammy does look quite a bit like Princess Blue.

    What great timing you have Jane!

    I heard back this morning from Texas DPS that Tammy had been ruled out as a match by mitochondrial DNA.

    I was bummed - I really had high hopes!!

    Oh well, we'll keep trying!
