    May be less distinctive than you think. https://www.tattoojohnny.com/download/S1F-00042

    Really? You think that there are lots of women with that tattoo on their right calf gone missing in the last six months or so??

    That's not the point. Maybe someone knows her but does not know that she's missing. There may be 100 women out there with that tattoo and 99 of them are fine.

    There's no one matching that description in the national missing person database. Women age 20 to 40 just don't go missing very often. In all of 2012, there were no women that age reported missing in CA, and only a handful of cases in all southwestern states (mostly women trying to cross the border illegally.) She could have been a recent immigrant from Mexico without strong ties to LA, and with no one to report her.

    I have a friend who works for the LA Coroner and he's posted the query to Facebook, hoping for leads to her identity.
    That which does not kill me has made a massive tactical blunder.

    The remains of the woman, listed at the Los Angeles County Department of Coroner as Jane Doe No. 27, were discovered by county workers about 8:40 a.m. April 2 in the riverbed about 150 yards north of the Whittier Narrows Dam, and 100 yards west of Pico Rivera Bicentennial Park, coroner's officials said in a written statement.
    April 2??

    OK so I'm not a detective I just play one on the Forum har har... But yeah who knows where she may have came from or when if ever she was reported missing. I called about a missing Utah woman who had a mushroom tattoo on her right leg unlikely the same person, but...

    Doesn't it sound like someone with a backpack containing two body sprays may have been homeless?

    The one that went missing in 1995? Yeah, doubtful it's the same person. The tattoo seems recent (if it can be googled), the age is off, and coroner describes her as hispanic.

    I have no idea why someone would carry two body sprays (and nothing else) in the backpack, but it does not sound like something a homeless person would do. I'd suspect a hooker, but size 16 petite pants are not exactly hooker geometry ... (but what do I know?)

    Thanks. I find it odd that they can't tell you what color her eyes were, yet they can identify her as "hispanic". Is that DNA?

    There are tools that forensic anthropologists can use to determine, among other things, race/ethnicity from skull measurements. For example, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FORDISC
