    Here's an article with a little bit more info: http://www.ketknbc.com/news/crimewatch/gregg-co-seeking-information-on-human-remains-cold

    -The cleft palate was unrepaired (though I've noticed that this doesn't say if the lip was itself fixed, which does happen sometimes, though no way to tell from the skull if it was soft tissue only. Also, have just read that in 25% of children born with a cleft, it can be just the palate and not the lip).

    -Body was located "on Highway 135, south of Swamp City Road in the Gladewater area."

    I wonder why her new image is not uploaded into Namus?

    I hope they do this soon...

    I would think that they would compare her to Susan Cooke (the only person I could find in Namus that had Cleft lip listed in her medical conditions). Both the UID and Susan have DNA so I assume by default that would mean there wasn't a match, right?

    I don't she is white. I think she is Hispanic. Cleft palates are more dominant in Hispanics and it's Texas. Not to sound politically incorrect but the fact that she didn't have her palate fixed suggest she was poor.

    But most Hispanics have a more prominent upper mandible than this one shows. I have a lot of Hispanic relatives. Not saying you are at all wrong. Just going by my relatives. :seeya: I'm sure there are lots that don't. I just haven't encountered any...
