    Morgue pictures are hard for me to deal with.
    Rest in peace, I hope someone is able to identify you, and that you are given justice.

    May your killer rot.

    The elderly mother of a girl who disappeared from Ballarat 37 years ago will have DNA samples taken today to see if a body discovered in the United States is that of her missing daughter. Police investigating the case of missing 16-year-old Sherrlynn Mitchell will today travel to Ballarat to take samples from her mother Betty Hill. Sherrlynn's older brother Gerard, who lives in Melbourne, will also have DNA samples taken today. Ms Mitchell disappeared from Ballarat on November 22, 1973 while waiting for a bus. Her family has not seen her heard from her since. Victoria Police confirmed on Wednesday they were investigating whether the body found in a Nevada desert in 1980 was that of Sherrlynn, who disappeared from Ballarat seven years before. Belier Taskforce members and coroners from Clark County in Nevada have been working together in recent weeks to determine whether the Jane Doe found in the desert was that of the missing Ballarat teenager. Ms Mitchell's mother said Belier Taskforce officers had contacted her and her son yesterday to confirm DNA tests would be carried out today. ''I'm relieved something is being done for Sherrlynn. Even if this body in Nevada doesn't turn out to be Sherrlynn, there is no harm in trying (to find out),'' said Mrs Hill, who turns 80 next month. However, she believes her daughter may still be alive. ''I don't think she's dead ... I would have felt something if she was gone, but my motherly instincts tell me she's still alive.'' Ms Mitchell's brother Gerard was also relieved police were conducted DNA tests. ''I feel happy knowing that someone is looking for her. At least we know we've tried,'' he said.

    Wow! won't that be something if they identify her. The next step is to determine who or what was responsible for her death. Murder never goes away does it?

    I just looked up a photo of Mitchell. Can't post it since I'm on my crackberry. From what I can see, its pretty damn close.
    My question is, what the hell happened that she couldn't contact her family for 7 years? A fight with them? Or could she have been a sex slave?

    I was wondering the same thing. It kind of reminds me of Colleen Stan, the Girl in the Box.

    Hello, This will be my first post.

    31 years ago today she was found.

    We have made a lot of rule outs but, nothing containing a match.

    The fact that she was found nude suggests that the killer knew she was from some other place because the brand of clothing may have given away her location.
    Its good that we search other states to find a match. But, that number is limited and there were only so many girls reported missing in that year. I think we need to search European missing girls for this case.
    Just my suggestion.

    If she was hit in the head with a hammer.
    What was she stabbed with?

    My guess would be a screw driver since its they can't identify what she was stabbed with.

    Hammer, Screw Driver, maybe it was someone who was a construction worker?
    Or somebody who knew there way around tools.

    I also wish they would show what the S tattoo looks like.

    Unfortunately, too many.

    If you read the cases at the "Identified" link at the Doe Network you will be surprised how many are noted as not having been reported missing.

    The 'Doe' network sounds like a useful place. Truly you can make a difference giving the nameless their history back, crimes unsolved or not, letting the Lost back in our collective memory...of which all these people have a right, is a beautiful concept alone in an ugly subject. Rare for the context, and color me impressed.

    Oh, [MENTION=1903]Insomniac[/MENTION]...that is a hella avatar!

    The Doe network just breaks my heart. It's unimaginable to me that so many can be so lost without someone looking for them. :(
