    Case History
    This woman was found on March 2, 1992 in Texas. She has been tentavily identified as Lynda Lee Bronaugh, though no DNA comparison is available because Bronaugh was adopted.

    DN link: http://www.doenetwork.org/cases/299uftx.html


    Lynda Bronaugh: http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/b/bronaugh_lynda.html


    Despite tentative identification, there are some differences such as the joint disease (Bronaugh is not reported as having), Bronaugh is one inch shorter than Jane Doe's estimated height, Bronaugh has less clothing reported than Jane Doe- JD had a white boot (Bronaugh had black heels), red belt and an earring (Bronaugh had neither). Another problem is the estimated date of death for Jane Doe and the time Bronaugh was last seen. Jane Doe's estimated DOD is 01/01/89, Bronaugh went missing 04/08/91. I created a mini timeline with a few possibilities of her being Jane Doe

    TIMELINE OF LYNDA L. BRONAUGH'S DISAPPEARANCE AND JANE DOE'S DISCOVERY

    04/08/1991
    - LYNDA L. BRONAUGH DISAPPEARS FROM HER APARTMENT IN LAREDO, TX

    - LYNDA POSSIBLY MAKES PURCHASES OR RECEIVES EARRINGS, WHITE KNEE HIGH BOOTS, A BLACK JACKET AND RED BELT
    - LYNDA/JANE DOE RUNS INTO FOUL PLAY AND BECOMES A VICTIM OF HOMOCIDE
    MARCH 2, 1992

    Ms Bronaugh has strong oriental features, which is normal since she is from the Philippines. Isn't there a way for a forensic anthropologist to tell if skeletal remains belong to an Asian individual? I ask because back when I lived in southern California where there is a large Asian minority it would often happen that skeletal remains were readily identified as belonging to an Asian individual when such was the case.

    Are you sure that Lynda was NOT wearing the earrings and belt when she disappeared? Maybe they just weren't reported in her file, being minor accessories. If I disappeared right now it would probably say "last seen wearing jeans and a light gray sweatshirt reading 'I trust Severus (Albus did)'" But I am also wearing a red turtleneck under the sweatshirt, and gray knee socks, and brown boots, and a black hair tie and clip, plus undergarments.

    Sorry to bump an old thread, however has there been any kind of testing to conclusively prove that Corpus Christi Jane Doe and Lynda are one in the same?

    Can I have your sweatshirt? Lol


    Agreed 100% though. Missing person info usually has holes.

    I'm wondering why dentals or bone xrays of somekind, especially with the noted left knee injuries aren't being used to id.

    The identifyus profile has a couple of interesting points:
    -boots were size 5. This caught my eye since it's very small; makes me think her height must be closer to the low end of the range given (5'1")
    -dental record notes the upper canines were congenitally absent.

    It would be great if we could find a good smiling photo of Lynda Bronaugh. If she was missing her #6 and #11, it would be easily recognizable.

    BTW, the UID's NamUs dental chart is wrong. If her two upper canines were "congenitally absent", then the #6 and #11 boxes should have been marked "A", not "P".
