    Your thoughts on this possible, please. One of those "surely she must have been ruled out" situations based purely on stats.

    Looks good to me, but if there is any truth to the following from her Doe Network profile...it couldn't be the unidentified, but again...only if what is said is true.

    from her Doe Network Page:

    "It is believed that Bardin lived for a while with a woman in Johnson City, about 40 miles west of Austin. The woman and another friend of Bardin's told investigators that on July 4, 1993, Bardin dropped out of the carnival. On July 19, Bardin, who doesn't know how to drive, asked the two women to take her to a bus station outside Dallas. There she rented a locker and stored her belongings. The women claimed they hadn't seen her since."

    I think the dates just don't match.

    also, Bardin had a tattoo. the UID's body was in good enough condition that they were able to determine she had missing organs so I think if she had tattoos, at least some remnants would be evident and no tattoos are listed for the UID.

    The dates are off. Even if the accounts given for the July dates are inaccurate the Charley project link indicates investigators were able to verifiy Bardin was staying at the St. James hotel in early 94.

    UID has very little information on NamUs, but DNA is complete. DoeNetwork states "She also had several crowns and a bridge on the upper left and only six remaining lower teeth"

    Here is a collage of UID with Bardin. Note her DNA is complete also.

    I am really confused by the clothing sizes listed? A Small shirt @200#? But size 10 panties?? But, a small slip? None of that makes sense together. I'm a chunky girl and I wear size 7 panties. No way could I wear a small shirt or a small slip.

    No way a size 40C bra goes with a small shirt either.

    I was thinking the same thing... then there is the size 40C bra which doesn't appear to coincide with a size small shirt.

    eta: gayeld, great minds think alike :highfive:

    In the early 90's wasn't everything oversized??? That may explain why she may fit into the small top, but the slip is another story.

    I wouldn't rely on the clothing sizes. They're virtually useless because of vanity sizing; there's no set chart or standards the clothing industry follows; the materials, the cut and type of shirt (or whatever article you're looking at) affect the size; your body type plays a role; and most women are wearing the wrong size bra anyway.

    Just to show how useless it is: My mom is a C-cup and I'm somewhere between a DD and E and weigh more than her. And yet, we both fit in pretty much the same size (medium, in most cases). There are some shirts where I'd have to go up to a large to accommodate the boobs, but it's not too common. I think it's because our fat distribution is different: hers is more in her hips and waist, while mine is in my chest and stomach but not my waist.

    Also, going by the description of the UP's teeth, it doesn't sound like she was in a good place financially. She could have gotten the clothing second-hand from somewhere, and she probably wouldn't have cared if the clothing was one size too large or small so long as she could still wear it. That would also help explain why the sizes seemed to vary so much.

    Good point. I'm pretty sure Rhoda Lee is/was a line for "mature" women, with sizes starting at what would be 14/16 in an "average" clothing line. So their small is probably quite generous.

    Thinking outside the box. . . .what if this is a guy dressed as a woman? Per NamUs the victim is missing: Appendix and Ovaries and Uterus. I'm not sure if there would be any scarring from surgery to remove male genitals. Or possibly someone who is born with both or a mix of both or neither.

    Just a thought. . . .

    I'm not sure about scars but NamUs has DNA available for the victim, that would show what sex chromosomes the victim has, correct? I don't think that hormone therapy would have any effect on those, but I'm obviously no expert.

    It certainly could not change the chromosomes.
    Note the stats given: Approximate Height and Weight: 5'0-5'2"; 160-200 lbs.
    This is extremely small for a man but not uncommon for a woman. The small clothing sizes mainly refer to the height rather than width, as she must have been somewhat obese.

    The reconstruction given doesn't seem very good, but there is a higher resolution version from the Texas dps:

    Just putting this one out here - height a bit off, but weight could've been gained in 13 years?

    That photo looks like it was accidentally distorted when it was uploaded.
