I can't remember seeing isotope results in her NamUs before?

Last modified February 28, 2020. Guessing that's when the info was added/unhidden.
Notice that California is separate from the rest of the states mentioned and says "Predictions also include Coastal California." In other words, CA is not from isotope analysis but is on the radar for another reason (IMO).

In the podcast Bensalem Police Detective Chris McMullin mentions missing women who he investigated as very good possible matches for Bensalem Jane Doe but were later ruled out by DNA:

Jeanette Tambe who was indentified as a different Jane Doe found in 1986:
Identified! NJ - Buena Vista Twp, WhtFem 248UFNJ, Aug'86 - Jeanette Tambe

Tracy Byrd who Det. McMullen mentioned lived less than 2 miles away from the distillery where Jane Doe was found:
Tracy Ann Byrd – The Charley Project
PA - Tracy Byrd, 14, Bensalem, 7 March 1983

Good podcast, but not a lot of new information. It did shed some light on the California connection mentioned upthread. While not part of the isotope results, a California reference was made. Det. McMullin mentioned that he was investigating a connection to an unnamed man posing as a photographer convicted of murdering a woman in California, who had used to live in Bensalem. While the man was unnamed in the podcast, a short google for the victim's first name, and a reference to being murdered by a photographer will give you the man's name. I don't know if it would be out of bounds to state it here, so I won't. But it is very easy to find. Interesting that the man asked his would-be-victims to bring a pair of black stockings.

Also, FWIW, the gender of Publicker Jane Doe's baby was female. :(

Thanks for posting this!
