    I did not find a thread on this unidentified suicide victim that was found in a motel in Vermont in 1998.
    Several people spoke to her and there seem to be many clues left by her.
    If mod can please help me write a better heading for her?

    Strange...It let me do it. I have googled her but only been able to find this one and another one which was about them burying her despite being unidentified.
    She was a striking middleaged woman with expensive luggage and clothes.
    She called herself Kathy Smith and travelled in New England, arrived there from New York, said she had just gotten through a nasty divorce and that she worked in the finance industry. She was fit and good looking with striking long white hair.

    I'm pretty familiar with searching on NAMUS. She is not listed there. They list 3 UIDs females from Vermont, the oldest is from 1935; one is from 2011; and one is from 2012. The weird thing is if I log in, I can only see the Asian female UID from 2012. If I DON'T log in, I can see all 3 UIDs listed.

    Yes, that is very sad.

    It appears that the only people to pay their respects to her never really knew her.

    Suicide woman was from Missouri
