Dr. Kathy Taylor contacted me to advise that national media outlets were calling the King County Medical Examiner’s Office about Cowlitz County’s last unidentified remains case. The remains were being exhumed after over 20 years, and she asked if I could do a reconstruction for them. Here’s a link to the original story.
Reporter Parella Lewis from Washington’s Most Wanted has been following the story from the beginning. She was instrumental in raising funds for the exhumation. I finished the reconstruction and she asked me to come in to the studio and talk about the case. These are some photos that they took during the drawing portion of the interview. Hopefully the attention on the case can lead to an identification of the victim. She’s described as a Caucasian or Native American woman in her early 20s. She was about 5′ 4″ and slender. A witness saw her shortly before the crash and said she had long straight dark hair in a ponytail and high cheekbones. She was wearing a gray or black shirt and possibly a cowboy vest, jeans, and a feather earring.
