I'm unsure why you would think anyone was implying it was.

Clearly in other posts we were talking about Romani referring to the people who some people might still call "gypsy".

There is a separate issue that Beth may be from an Eastern European or Mediterranean country. One country that fits this description is Romania. I did point out that the Hasidic communities in NYS have large populations of Romanians so that may have confused the issue, but I was not implying Romani = Romanian. I'm sorry if that was confusing.

I think considering the fact that Beth is probably not Romani, Romanian, or Hasidic makes all this irrelevant. I'm sorry for diverting the thread into this direction.

I totally understood what you meant :)
 
This item was on channel 5 news in Boston this morning:

14 Years Later, Case Of Dismembered Nanny Still Mystery
Criminologist Says Karina Holmer's Murderer Probably Killed Before
...
Karina Holmer, an au pair from Sweden, was visiting night clubs in Boston with friends. Not long after, part of her torso was found in a Boston dumpster. Today, her crime remains unsolved, and a very cunning killer could still be at large.
...
"Most chilling, whoever committed the brutal crime may still be free and, said Fox, it's quite possible Karina Homer was not his only victim.

"What is fairly clear is that this man was comfortable with murder and dealing with a dead body afterward. It is quite possible he did it before," said Fox."

Boston is well within the region where Beth's killer might have come from. Do you suppose she was his first? I wonder if there are others between 1976 and 1996?
 
There are quite a few other cases of dismembered bodies in the Northeast region during that time period.

If you do a search there's a thread of Homer's case here on Websleuths.
 
Hi Lil'E, Sheryl Ann Tillinghast was submitted as a possible match on DoeNet in 2005. My understanding is the match was forwarded onto LE.

I was reading about this case and it makes me wonder if Beth Doe is related to another case and not just a single case herself.
Ex: The parents/family are killed somewhere and she is removed and killed, or abducted and killed later.


This girl went missing at about the same time Beth would have (possibly) figured out she was pregnant. Her parents were in western PA. It's just a thought....

This girl is a really interesting possible. I know it was mentioned before.

Wilma had some false teeth (upper fronts I believe) - didn't we have a good dental on Beth? I can't seem to find it now. I didn't see any filling mentioned about Wilma but if she had false teeth she likely had other work done.

The leg scars match in similar locations.

Perhaps she ran off with the boyfriend who got her pregnant....?? Again, this one went missing about the time Beth would have found our she was expecting.

The age, height, weight, hair color, eye color - all match.
 
Possible same perp?

Stamford Torso Murder Victim
Identified As Canadian Beautician

Stamford (UPI)Police in Stamford Wednesday identified the dismembered body of a woman through fingerprints as a missing beautician from Canada.

Detective Captain Thomas O'Conner said the state police laboratory at Hartford confirmed the prints from the torso victim matched those of Margaret Mary Warburton, 20, of Pierre Fons, a suburb of Montreal.

The woman's torso was found inside a suitcase wrapped in plastic in a coin locker at the Penn Central station here Sept. 20.

O'Conner said an earlier examination of Miss Warburton's prints had established some type of pattern with the set obtained from the dead woman.

A missing persons report filed in New York City showed that Miss Warburton traveled from Montreal to visit her aunt and uncle, Mr. and Mrs. John Flynn, in Queens, N.Y. Sept. 16. She was last seen leaving the Flynn home Sept. 18 for a shopping trip in Manhatten.

O'Conner said that upon confirmation of the identity of the victim, the Warburton family asked authorities to deal with the British embassy in the investigation.

The woman's father, John Warburton, an engineer with a Montreal oil company, came to Canada from England about three years ago.

Miss Warburton, who lived with her parents, was described as "very popular" but a quiet girl.

At the time of her disappearance she was wearing maroon corduroy slacks, black stockings and shoes. Apair of maroon corduroy slacks was found in the suitcase with the torso. The victim's arms and legs were found the next day also wrapped in plastic in a men's room at the station. Her head remained missing. An autopsy on the remains indicated that she had been strangled,police said.
