New article, includes a new pic of the bust from a different angle. It seems they’ve used a hair sample to get DNA.

In November 2021, that evidence — not bones, but rather the hair that was found with them in the chimney — was sent to Astrea Forensics in California, one of the nation’s leading laboratories for recovering DNA from rootless hair. Should Astrea succeed, the DNA Doe Project will then look for genetic matches among the living. As of press time, the DNA testing was ongoing.

And there’s more. Multiple sources tell Madison Magazine that the bone remains — unlike the hair evidence, which remains in MPD’s custody — are in the possession of the Dane County Medical Examiner’s Office, which has now sent them to Bode Technology in Virginia for analysis. Asked about that, the Medical Examiner’s Office replied, “We do not comment on open cases.”

The article makes it sound as though Good 'n Loud had not yet opened when the body was found and that there had been a bakery of some sort in the building at some point. There is mention of appliances having been outside the building providing possible access to the roof. Seems inconsistent with some of the other reporting.

It had opened extremely recently, like 6 weeks prior. I couldn't find when the bakery was opened or if it was even in the same building but if it was it was open pre-1984 so it was pretty much irrelevant. The bookstore (Bread Shop) was in that building from 1984-ish to December 1988 when it moved to Hilldale Mall, Good 'n' Loud bought the building in April 1989, at least that's when they advertised it as their new location opening soon.
