    The clothing looks distinctive. It's too bad it hasn't been traced back to a store. And the T-shirt to a "Bar" possibly. Especially since it dosen't say the usual "Moniker" "Detroit Rock City" but "LA". It says she just had a "Cyst" removal. Would She be traveling that soon?. She was dressed in "Layers". Like alot of "Transients". I know it's "Florida. But December. She is wearing a "Sweater" but has no "Jacket" or "Coat". Not wearing warm Socks. Or warm Shoes. Does this mean She WAS fairly local?. It states they kept "Teeth Roots" but did not say if they tried to extract DNA.

    I also wondered about how recent her cyst removal was.. I suppose it depends on how invasive the surgery was as to how soon she would be active afterwards. I, personally, do not believe these clothes to be that of a 'transient'.. in Florida, in December, it does get chilly- especially when the sun is not out (or its cloudy)... we often wear layers to be able to remove some when that Florida sun pops out because it warms up quick! One would also want to wear layers if they planned on being on a boat or hanging out by the lake or ocean. The wind chill can get pretty nippy, especially near the water! Also, the fact that her shoes were red and matched her red stripes on her sweater makes me think that she was fashionable- typically transients don't have that luxury.. it could be a coincidence, however..
