    There is a closed thread in the Missing Archives for this UID, and Houston Mom asked that I open it so that she can propose a possible match. I don't have moderator access to the Missing Archives subforum, so I am starting a new thread.

    Hi Carl,
    How do UID cases end up closed and in the archives if they haven't yet been identified?? It seems like it wasn't long ago when we were discussing this UID. Maybe I'm thinking of another one, but I thought there was discussion of Nellie Flickinger being a match..?

    Here's the link to that thread:

    TX - 1982 Female Bexar County Partial Skeletal - Websleuths Crime Sleuthing Community


    I think it was archived quite a while ago when this forum had threads dedicated to one UID and one possible, and we used the "Possible Match" and "Ruled Out" flags.

    I don't have an email contact at TXDPS yet, CarlK do you have one? That porcelain tooth is a good identifier, eh?

    I think the image of the victim resembles Judi Mungia. However, there is no mention of a limp in her case.

    [​IMG] [​IMG] link [​IMG] link


    Missing Since: May 28, 1981 from Odessa, Texas
    Age: 32 years old
    Height and Weight: 5'3; 150 pounds
    Distinguishing Characteristics: Black hair; hazel eyes. Munguia has a scar on her left leg between her knee and ankle.


    Munguia was last seen departing her residence in Odessa, Texas at approximately 1:00 AM on May 28, 1981. She was planning to drive to a friend's house in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma at the time. Munguia never arrived at her destination and has not been seen again. Her car was found abandoned at Will Rogers World Airport in Oklahoma City on November 14, 1981, nearly six months after Munguia's initial disappearance. Authorities determined that her vehicle was parked in the airport's lot for at least 80 days prior to discovery. There was no trace of Munguia at the scene. Foul play is suspected in her disappearance.

    I don't have any close contacts in Texas other than the ones in NamUs or TXDPS. I don't have any closer rapport with them than anyone else does.
