    The UID case has been there at least since last June. I checked an archived copy of my UID listing, and UP 4641 was there. It probably didn't get much attention because there were no images at that time.

    So exciting. As Carl says, something about Paulette has attracted a lot of eyeballs over a long time. Fantastic job, Houston Mom, and happy you have some of the answers, finally, Pbuck.

    I looked to see where she was mentioned before but didn't find it.

    Copying my post here..

    Peg; my condolences to your family. I'm thankful you do not have to spend another day wondering where Paulette is. Can you tell us how they came to the conclusion that she is Paulette since the dentals didn't work out?

    I do not have a missing loved one; I can never know the hell your family & other family feels. I volunteer my time because of people like you; that makes sure your loved one is in the press; on message boards like WS as well as FB pages. I wish that everyone with a missing loved one would consider coming here; checking to see if there is a post then regularly posting to it so that their face is fresh in our mind.

    I'm honored to be here with you & the others that work so hard to give families their loved ones back <3

    Pbuck, I'm glad you know where your sister is now, but I'm so very sorry it couldn't be under happier circumstances. Please accept my condolences for your family's loss.

    Houston Mom, beautifully, beautifully done. This is a prime example of a match made by human intelligence.

    (I notice from the Google cache of both cases that dental information was available and entered for both Ms. Jaster and the UID. I wish we had more information about how NamUs attempts dental, DNA, and fingerprint matching.)

    Wow. Great, great job Houston Mom! Just amazing. Really illustrates the importance of thinking - and looking - outside the box. Prayers to Paulette's family. Such bittersweet news. :( May Paulette RIP.

    Didn't realize this didn't post when I hit submit due to posting in the other thread... Came back from feeding my grandson & noticed

    See the newest article she posted in Paulette's thread; very interesting!
    Three freckles helped Texas officials identify dead woman as long-missing Davison woman

    This week, siblings found out the reason for the silence after a citizen tip led Harris County officials to compare the unidentified woman with Jaster.

    Derrick said identifications are typically made with fingerprints, but in this case, none were on file for Jaster.

    And although there were dental records to compare with autopsy reports, there were no dental X-rays to compare.

    Finally, investigators had DNA samples from Jaster's family members, but DNA wasn't collected for the accident victim when she was buried in Texas at county expense.

    Derrick said the ability of Jaster's sisters to identified the woman as their sibling helped with the identification as well as consistencies in dental records, matching freckles and the same hairline pattern.

    MI - Paulette Jaster, 25, Davison, 12 May 1979'

    Pbuck- while I am so very sad for your loss, I am gratified that you now, at the very least, have some answers.

    God bless your family in this time...
