    Details about Elizabeth at above link.

    30 JUNE 1983
    Skull found in first article ruled out as Elizabeth.

    JMHO I am not ready to accept that Lucas was reponsible. His claims about his number of victims have been refuted.

    Also, there is a thread here where there are several UID Jane Does that were found in Abilene (was discussed during the West Mesa AZ Burial finds of many women). Could she be one of those UID's?

    Elizabeth has been missing almost 29 years. Come home soon.
