    Did LE estimate how long she had been there? Cause of death?

    Neither the PM interval, nor COD was indicated in NamUs. But the "sun bleached" condition of the bones would suggest that they had been there for a considerable length of time (i.e., over a year). But since her clothing was still there, I wouldn't think that she was there for more than 5-10 years.

    the bust is helpful but there is so little information to go on. no height, hair color or estimated date of death.

    dentals are tough with the post-mortem losses but that's about all we have to work with.

    sad.

    She was missing quite a few teeth antemortem, so I suspect that she was a vagrant or drug user.

    Wow! Rhonda looks pretty similar to the reconstruction. Good Work, Irish Eyes!

    could be Rhonda but she has no dentals on file and that is the only identifier currently available for the UID.

    The UID's profile now says "Samples submitted-tests not complete" regarding DNA. So we're one step closer to having another identifier. She and Rhonda do look a lot alike.

    Right age
    Right place (78 miles away)
    Right time
    and the reconstruction looks pretty good too.
    Shame there is no information on Anita's dentals but...

    I will submit this one.

    Confirmed this is NOT Anita Gunn

    and the details have changed from female to male!

    Carl can you update the initial post?

    this one is going to be fun. I wonder why they thought this was a female? height? only 5'5". size 7 1/2 sneakers??

    the UID was wearing boxer shorts and while I know some women wear 100% cotton boxers for a particular reason, most wearers of boxers are men.

    a bigger question for me is that they say a pair of Jordache jeans were found near the remains and that he was only wearing the boxers along with a shirt. I wonder why the guy was in a partial state of undress? does anyone know if this particular area was a place where guys went for some casual anonymous activities?

    The boxers make more sense now.

    7 1/2 shoe is small for a man, so it's likely he would be of slight build.

    My first thought when I read your post was to wonder if this isn't tied to Elton Manning Jackson. He operated around the Portsmouth Va. area during that time.

    Just checked a little further and the age range of the UID seems to fit the age of the victim he was convicted of murdering.Also the site where the UID was found is within a mile of interstate 64.Proximity to the IS also being part of Jacksons MO.

    It turns out that this is not a woman, it was a man. Dippy pointed it out earlier, but I didn't notice.

    isn't Flowers a tad too tall for this UID? last we knew the deceased was about 5'5" and Flowers was said to be 6'1".
