Unidentified 2010 to Present

The photographs were found last fall when Horace Van Vaultz was arrested, the first case brought by the LA County District Attorney’s Office that relied, in part, on searches of genealogical DNA databases in order to identify an alleged killer. The charges included the 1986 murder of Mary Duggan, whose body was found in the trunk of her own car parked near the 5 Freeway in Burbank. She was last seen at a bar on Vanowen in Reseda and a pizza restaurant on Saticoy St. nearby. Then in 2006 a DNA profile from Duggan’s body, that had been uploaded to a law enforcement database, linked the case to the 1981 unsolved murder of Selena Keough, who was tied up, sexually assaulted, and strangled.

https://dailyvoice.com/new-york/orangetown/news/human-skull-found-by-hiker-at-harriman-state-park/783741/ A human skull found by a hiker at Harriman State Park is part of an ongoing investigation by state police.

The recreation area is a wooded valley with playing fields and hiking trails in the park which is located in Rockland and Orange counties. Nevel said the skull was part of an ongoing investigation and that additional information could not be released.

There is dispute on where Doe was found, however, as some news sources place her discovery as being several miles away from Mohegan Sun while others, such as NAMUS, place her as being found within several hundred feet of one of the casino's parking lots. She was, according to NAMUS, believed to be between 45 and 65 years old, of Asian descent, and measured at 5 feet tall. Her time of death was believed to have been between 2017-2018. Also on NAMUS is some possibilities for her name, with her first...
