    Virginia officials are asking the public to help them identify skeletal remains.

    Chief Medical Examiner William Gormley on Tuesday unveiled facial models of eight people who were found dead in central Virginia and have never been identified.

    Gormley says three of the sets of remains were found at separate locations and times in Stafford County. Two of the individuals were discovered in Caroline County and one was found in Henrico County. The remaining two were located in James City County and York County.

    The facial approximations are of five men and three women. Their remains were discovered between 1972 and 2014.

    Gormley is encouraging anyone who may be able to identify the individuals to contact his office. ​

    I looked at this, and took a look at Patricia Thomas- Wardell, why hasn't she been ruled in Namus for this https://identifyus.org/en/cases/4541 ? These remains of an 16-19 year old were discovered a year later, FOUR MILES away on the same road, from where she disappeared, with a post-mortem interval of a year. Matching perfectly with Patricia's disappearance. She's been compared according to Namus to random Jane Doe's, but not the one right next to where she disappeared...?

    Should I call this in? Derailing the thread, but somehow I can't make new threads and stumbled upon this.

    The height estimate is six inches off, but DNA is available on both, so I wouldn't see any harm in submitting.

    Yeah, the height threw me off, but I'd imagine it could be very wrong.
    http://imada.sdu.dk/~hcp/ijo2005.pdf According to this study, a +-4 cm is always a possibility, and since it was a partial skeleton-
    http://www.sfu.museum/forensics/eng/documents/calculating-stature/
    according to this source the accuracy is even worse when going off of partial remains and had this interesting fact, people under distress may report their beloved one's height wrong.

    Not coming at you BTW, just found this interesting and something I'll keep in mind
