I hope they figure out who this is quickly! It is amazing to me that bones are just laying all over the U.S.--just waiting to be found. Mindboggling to say the least!
I did a search on missing persons in South Carolina and these are the two I came up with closest to Calhoun county. I am sure there are more so I will search more but these are the two that popped right up. They disappeared from other counties but they were near enough to Calhoun to consider.
or this one maybe???
There is just nothing really to go on in the article. There is not an age, gender, or race. I would like to know more.
It is horrifying that bones are being found with no idea as to who they are. Everyone deserves an identity and a proper burial!
I will just keep watching this thread.
I know, very frustrating!!! Is it male/female? Age? How old are the bones?Etc...so many unanswered questions and extremely frustrating.
Article doesnt say if it's male/female, adult/child, ethnic background,etc.
I did pull the area up on a map however, and found it was interesting that this is not that far and a straight shot down the interstate from where Brooke Henson disapeared from.
I will wait to do any searching for this myself until we have more specifics on what/who was found. it doesn't really make sense to start speculating now - it could be anyone.
"The victim could have been a white female between the ages of 30 and 50. Height approximately 5'3" to 5'7"," says Summers. Investigators also say the victim may have had blond hair. No identification was found at the crime scene so officials are relying on DNA testing.
my first instinct when I read the first article was Brandy Hanna from Dorchester County.
except that Brandy Hanna was 5'9", and the remains are listed as being between 5'3" and 5'7".
since there's not much else to go on, I'm going to stick with the few details they do give in the article, in looking for our UID.

Facial reconstruction of mystery woman updated
I see only two woman named Maria on my list Aged 21-40 with DLC's from 2003 to Sep 08. Both of them have much broader facial structures than this "Maria".
Not sure if this is appropriate and am not at all trying to incriminate anyone, but coincidentally there was a young man that went missing for about a week at the end of September 2008-early October at Clemson.
FWIW here are the Maria's (middle name Maria included) from Nampn.org (1993-2008 minus the two already posted by CarlK)
( I didn't put links to anyone younger then 14 or older then 60; they're are several children named Maria Ages: 14 and under and a two older 70+ Maria's on Nampn.org fyi.)
I haven't looked closely at any of these honestly to compare to the recon posted above....
Maria is spelled the same way in English and Spanish. Not sure why they said what they did.
I thought the same thing; unless there was/is some other writing on the braclet...
below the age range of the UID but this Hispanic female disappeared in SC in 2007, Viridiana Maldonado.
nothing to reference Maria, but in some of the web stories I read about her, someone tried to throw the family off track by sending a text message that she was planning to return to Mexico, despite the fact she never sent text messages before.

Viridana Maldonaldo may be a good candidate. Charleston and Calhoun County are only an hour and fifteen minutes away from each other tops.
