    Looks almost exactly like someone I’ve seen before in the Saint Mary’s County area years ago. If there were more details about the victim’s description, I could possibly provide a full name but I don’t want to provide incorrect information. If it’s who I think it is, she’s more like early 30’s and about 5’8-5’9 at the most. Did she have a vehicle or children? Was her complexion brown or dark-skinned? A fingerprint check might lead to a couple of states along the east coast if I’m correct.

      What would be the harm in giving them a name? If it isn’t that person the cops will figure it out really quickly. If it is that person then the family will finally know her fate.

        Because a good guess isn’t the same thing as a positive identification. Accuracy counts in murder cases and for your business, I already took that step for good measure in case I was right. Therefore, if a real photograph had been posted I would know if it’s who it might be or not. You people on here really need to stop jumping to conclusions and the moderators here need to stop approving ridiculous comments to be posted but they’re probably in on it anyway. Drama, slander and adults bickering like children draws controversy that translates to “entertainment” and money.

      HMMM. I wonder if the police have thought of doing fingerprints yet? Great job Sherlock, looks like your about to crack this mystery wide open Scooby doo.

        Exactly why I shouldn’t even have said that much. This site is full of dumb a** trolls and drama queens like you who can’t even respect a serious situation for what it is. Just another example of how immature and ridiculous this society really is.

      I also know who she might be, if they provide a name, picture while alive and possibly address and social security then I would know for sure. Does she have face tattoos, it’s more likely a guy in his ’80s and not a 20yr old like they say.

    Was she wearing two pairs of pants?
