    [​IMG]In August 1986, a human skull was discovered in the area of Still Creek Road, about one mile south of Government Camp on Mt. Hood.

    At the time of this discovery, forensic investigators estimated the human skull may have been at this location for a long period of time -- potentially up to 10 years, possibly dating back to 1976.

    In March 2008, Nici Vance, a forensic scientist with the Oregon State Police Forensic Crime Lab in Portland, determined the skull is that of a young female, probably in her late teens or early 20s.

    The Clackamas County Sheriff's Office Homicide & Violent Crimes Unit (HVCU) took possession of this human skull in March 2008. At this time, Clackamas County Sheriff's Office Forensic Artist Joyce Nagy began a forensic reconstruction of the skull, which was both challenging and difficult -- the skull was missing its jawbone and teeth. (Photos of the reconstruction are linkedabove.)

    The Sheriff's Office has very limited information available to offer the public related to the discovery of this skull. However, with the release of the forensic data and forensic-reconstruction image, perhaps someone can come forward and provide investigators with a relevant tip.

    The Clackamas County Sheriff's Office is seeking information about this unidentified female -- and asks anyone who recognizes and/or has information about this person to contact the Clackamas County Sheriff's Office Tip Line at 503-723-4949 and/or Detective D. Calhoun at 503-722-6746.

    I don't think this is any case that lay people can possibly solve. there were no teeth or hair recovered so the hair color was pure conjecture.

    the Doe Network profile says any match can be made only through DNA so I don't know what we can do that would assist in making a match.

    They don't even have a mandible, so her chin and jawline are also conjecture.

    I'd like to see any available photos of the skull, even if only to allow other forensic artists to interpret her visage.

    New addition to NamUs:

    Karen Ann Harmon
    https://www.findthemissing.org/en/cases/19911/0

    * She's missing from Northern Oregon.
    * Timeline: about 4 years from May'82 to Aug'86. (NamUs has the PM interval at 1 year, but DoeNet has it at up to 10 years.)
    * Her age (26) is within NamUs 18-30 range for the Jane Doe.


    Not a whole lot to go on. The mandible was not found, so the chin and jawline on the reconstruction are just a guess .

    But nevertheless - looks pretty close - Doncha think?

    Wow Carl, That looks very close!

    Honestly I think this recon and Annie Doe from Jackson County Ore look like sisters. But I'm guessing that's because the same artist did it.

    Here's a list of women who are reasonably in the age range who went missing at least a year before 1986:

    Suzanne Rae Justis
    http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/j/justis_suzanne.html


    Laronda Marie Bronson
    http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/b/bronson_laronda.html


    Benita Gay Chamberlain
    http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/c/chamberlin_benita.html


    Sherry Melissa Eyerly
    http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/e/eyerly_sherry.html


    Karen Jean Lee
    http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/l/lee_karen.html


    Linda Rachel Pleva (I know, a little old. But not that far off)
    http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/p/pleva_linda.html


    Deborah Lee Tomlinson
    http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/t/tomlinson_deborah.html


    Irin Marie Meyer (The chances of that are pretty slim)
    http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/m/meyer_irin.html



    Vickie Lynn Hollar
    http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/h/hollar_vicki.html



    Niki Diane Brittan (Which would mean she would have been out there for a bit longer than what they estimated)
    http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/b/britten_niki.html


    Virginia Erickson (Which is also another one who is a little older)
    http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/e/erickson_virginia.html

    Wow, good find, Carl. And nice work, EmmaliLucia.

    I have a friend who does archaeological reconstructions. It's not exactly the same as forensic reconstruction, but some of the principles and techniques are similar. They can tell a certain amount about the jaw line from the angle and shape of the joint of the upper jaw. The musculature also gives clues. So it's conjectural but it's not a total guess, either. It's like deducing the shape of the eyebrows by the shape of the brow ridge -- not guaranteed, but likely.

    They acknowledged my submission. But I never heard anything more. I am guessing that they are just presuming no match based on no CODIS hit.
