    For some odd reason and as I've previously stated, body-in-suitcase/torso-in-trunk -type crimes wield a possibly unhealthy hold on my imagination, possibly resulting from having first read of them in re: a couple Brighton UK murders a very long time ago, ones which I read about decades after their occurrence whilst developing an interest in true crime writing.

    Hope they ID and solve this. Justice is always interesting, a healthy thing to see accomplished.

    Thanks for posting this. I tried to, but I guess I don't have thread posting permissions yet. The comments on KOMO's facebook post about this seemed to point to her possibly being a homeless person that was seen around the area. This isn't too far from the King County courthouse and jail. It's possible that she had been released from there and didn't make it much farther. I really hope they find out who she is and who would do something so horrible.

    Homeless people being preyed upon is nothing new.

    I hope the local paper will publicize her case in the hopes that people in the area will keep an eye out in case the person(s) who killed her strike again in that area.

    UID could easily have died of natural causes, after being cared for by her family members. If her family were desperately poor (and/or sleazy), possibly they did not want to give up this woman's SS disability insurance, and/or any subsidy/tax deduction they received as caregivers: therefore they disposed of her body like you would someone you murdered.

    I'm thinking this poor lady was probably homeless, I've seen discarded adult diapers in areas where homeless persons stay due to a lack of bathroom access I assume. I saw this posted on another message board a few months ago: https://komonews.s3.amazonaws.com/Appendix-A-to-Dept-Memo_83116.pdf Seattle has had a much larger issue with homelessness recently.

    Hmm. You might be right there. I know adult diapers are relatively expensive things to buy regularly (which made me think "not homeless") but I don't know how many municipalities have programs which make them more accessible.

    I know they're expensive, and initially I didn't think she was homeless either, but I'm thinking she may have gotten them from a homeless shelter or hospital visit. Pre-60 is a little young to have incontinence issues and her autopsy apparently didn't reveal any evidence of illness that would have left her bed-bound and needing to use adult diapers.
