    Heya, I'm not sure how to go about starting a thread on this newest report I have stumbled on.
    No sex, or race yet...so I'll just post the link until more information comes from it.

    The Natrona County Coroner has filed a report with a national missing persons database about the human remains discovered Sunday in west Casper.

    Hikers found an entire skeleton of a person near the Wolf Creek subdivision and notified authorities.

    Natrona County Coroner Connie Jacobson said Tuesday that little could be determined specifically about the gender or age of the deceased person, and that she would be sending the remains to Fort Collins, Colo., for an autopsy on Thursday.

    Jacobson has said she will discuss the case more on Friday.

    I know it's not been long enough to start a thread, but just something to keep an eye on.

    :holycow: I thought you researched the whole year!

    :( No, all those I posted a couple weeks ago were only October 2014! I thought maybe I needed to regroup and can't decide how to go about it. I don't understand how there can be so many!

    Maybe we can just do the ones with visuals for now and let the system do the DNA matching?

    That sounds like a good plan. October is already all on here, so I can do September 2014 and work backward. Maybe list the ones without visuals at a later date?

    I went in to list and decided to do a search of children/babies. Now I'm depressed! How did there ever get to be so many?!

    British Columbia:

    It’s almost a cliché: The body was identified through dental records. That has been easier said than done in B.C. until very recently and is still problematic in much of Canada.
    Canadian authorities have been far less precise about describing teeth than TV detective shows lead people to believe.

    At one point, U.S. authorities suggested they were wary about counting Canadians as possibilities for unidentified human remains south of the border because there was such a big gap in relevant information available about their teeth, said RCMP Cpl. Kelly Risling of the B.C. Police Missing Persons Centre.

    “Dental data is a cornerstone of forensic identification,” yet dental codes in Canada recorded just three kinds of teeth: missing, virgin and treated. The treatment was not specified as to the seven surfaces of each tooth, he said.

    “I wanted to see our dental coding system brought more into the future, and now dental fillings are identified,” Risling said.

    “Instead of just three codes, you’re going to have up to seven codes associated with a tooth,” he said.

    Moreover, there is now a B.C. policy that dental information on missing persons must be sent to the provincial dental database and that dental profiles of unidentified remains be searchable.

    Kimster and/or other mods:

    I happened across this and thought it was interesting and might help narrow down states that UIDs with red or blond-red hair came from. It is maps of the U.S. and the world arranged by percentages of hair color "red". and "blonde". It attracted my attention because so many female UIDs from the 1960-1990s seem to have red or reddish-blonde hair. I was thinking about Buckskin Girl, Arroyo Grande Jane, and a couple of others. I tried to post it in the "Resources" forum but couldn't. Maybe it belongs in a subthread on the "Unidentified" forum?

    It's purrfect here! We'll alert @Imamazed for her review in Helpful Resources. That's her area of expertise.

    Would it be possible to start an "Alcala Photos-Unidentified" subforum, to post photos that LE has released to the public to help identify the people in the photos? According to Wikipedia, as of Nov. 2014, LE was still asking for the public's help.

    Whoa! I didn't know there were still UIDs in that case. Can you link me? I'm not able to get to a computer right now, but let me look into it and let's see what we can do. I actually started a sub forum at the other place a few years ago and used to be very familiar with that case.

    I saw a reference to the LE sites where the pics are supposed to be, but the link was bad. :waitasec: I'd like to make sure we're still looking at the photos that haven't been identified.

    Here's the latest I could locate: http://www.vice.com/read/the-haunting-photography-of-a-serial-killer
