    NamUs says: " This surgery would NOT have left a scar on the skin of her forehead, although the healed crescent shape may have been seen through the skin as an indentation or depression." She is also described as having "aucasian skeletal characteristics with possible afro-american genetic admixture".

    NamUs also says: Update 07/07/14: CT scan by neurologist indicated that the excision was only partial thickness and did not perforate the inner sinus wall of the frontal bone.

    So if they didn't go into the sinus wall, was it a complete incision? It's very odd, and the "partial thickness defect" (e.g. scar-type thing) is too low for a typical frontal craniotomy procedure. There is no hardware to hold the frontal bone back together, and the "defect" is too clean to be a result of trauma. Usually this kind of surgery is for tumor removal but it looks like removal of the frontal bone is incomplete? And from what I can gather, frontal sinus problems can be complication from the craniotomy, but a craniotomy is not done to treat frontal sinus problems. Just super weird, makes no sense whatsoever.

    It will be interesting to see what OHSU thinks about it or if they give us any more information.

    Even though the NamUs profile was updated this year, I don't see anything different on it. No rule outs.

    I like the possibility!
