    There is an annual celebration Islenos actual dancers come from the Canary Islands its a very cool event. The Islenos settled in lower St Bernard Parish east of New Orleans. There were several settlements however it came down to St Bernard as the primary.

    Most of the friends I know that are descendants from Islenos have very dark hair, dark eyes and are petite in size.

    French, German, Italian and Spanish surnames are plentiful from Alabama to Texas Gulf Coast

    It would not surprise me if she was from Louisiana many I know here have moved to Texas for work in the oil & gas industry

    I think she’s too old to be wcjd but finds like these are so important and it’s worth pursuing for other UID cases obviously. There is a group on fb with some excellent admins who are proficient at researching cases and getting them into namus. This is the group, it could be worth posting in there to see if someone can help you further? If you don’t feel comfortable posting in the group then I’m happy to do it for you.

    I joined this forum after being contacted by someone from your site here. I have been researching the Skelton case for years. She has been missing since 1980 but someone has used her name and identity to rent a house in Stockton during the 1990s-2000s and that is currently something I am looking into. Gail disappeared along with her car, just 4 months after her fiance' had drowned in the Delta. I have been researching both of their deaths for years.

    Welcome to Websleuths J Rubio. :wagon:Thank you for the additional info on Gail's case. Over in another thread, we are discussing how to get her case listed in NAMUS: https://www.websleuths.com/forums/showthread.php?83841-Has-your-case-been-entered-into-NAMUS/page5

    It's important to get her case listed in NAMUS so that if she is a Jane Doe somewhere she can be identified. But if she happens to be alive and simply cut off contact with family it can also aide in finding that out.

    Hey, that was me! Thanks for coming to join! This is totally up your alley so I'm glad you came along.

    I think we should probably start a thread for Gail...?

    Yes a thread needs to be open for Gail and move away discussions from AGJD and WCJD

    I've always been told we need something "official" (MSM, missing persons report number, NAMUS, etc) to start a thread but if the mods approve and you have enough info RATS, please go ahead and get her thread started (I don't know where she was reported missing from-- California?). Maybe the mods can move the posts on Gail from this thread and the "Is your case in NAMUS" thread over into one thread so we don't have to post it all again?

    I have only met one Isleno (he usually just referred to himself as 'Cajun' because few outside of Louisiana have heard of Islenos) and he matches your description very well.

    I always thought she might have been visiting her father, maybe she had never met but had been told by someone her father was a prisoner there, I know they say none of the inmates knew her but what if he had never met her or didn't know she even existed.

    Yes, that potential lead came about in Oct. 2016, I believe? Sadly, nothing more has come of it :(

    I think this is a ve
    I think that the possibility of a guard is quite possible. In certain specialties of the military they are taught to insert something such as a sock in a deceased person's rectum in order to prevent the bowels from evacuating stool or anything else. For the same reason they are taught to insert something absorbent into the nose because stuff seeps out of there as well. I believe that whoever did this had served in the military at some point, and it is very common for ex-military to seek employment as prison guards and such

    Her wisdom teeth (#1, #16, #17, and #32) are all marked "N" on her chart for natural tooth. That doesn't necessarily mean that they were fully erupted though.
