Estimated Date of Death: 1978 State of Remains: Decomposed Cause of Death: Homicide by beating
Dentals: Available. Her dental work would not have been possible in a small town during the time frame, but possible in a larger city. She had extensive dental work done on both upper and lower teeth. She had ceramic bridges on most of her teeth. Odontologist estimates that dental work would probably have had been done within two years prior to her death, and she may have still been under the dentist care. Restorative work was of extremely high quality and not capable of being done by the average dentist. It was felt she would have been under the active care of a dentist at the time of her death, possibly with a treatment plan for caps on the upper front teeth and upper right and upper left molar areas. Most of the work appeared to have been performed within two years of her death. Fingerprints: Unknown. DNA: Available.
Clothing: None. Jewelry: None. Additional Personal Items: None.
