Forensic Investigators Hope Facial Recreation From Human Skull Leads to ID

Clackamas County Sheriff's investigators seek public assistance with identification of missing woman.

The painstaking recreating may look very similar to the woman who apparently met her fate on Mt. Hood several years, possibly decades ago.

(PORTLAND, Ore.) - In August 1986, a human skull was discovered in the area of Still Creek Road, about one mile south of Government Camp, on Mt. Hood.

At the time of this discovery, forensic investigators estimated this human skull may have been at this location for a considerably long period of time- potentially up to 10-years; possibly dating back to 1976.

In March 2008, Nici Vance, a forensic scientist with the Oregon State Police Forensic Crime Lab, in Portland, determined this skull is that of a young female; probably in her late teens or early twenties.

The Clackamas County Sheriff's Office Homicide & Violent Crimes Unit took possession of this human skull in March, 2008.

At this time, Clackamas County Sheriff's Office, Forensic Artist Joyce Nagy, began a forensic reconstruction of this human skull; which was both challenging and difficult -- the skull was discovered missing the jaw bones and teeth.

It is readily apparent the Clackamas County Sheriff's Office has very limited investigative lead information available to convey to the public related to the discovery of this human skull; however, with the release of this combined forensic data and forensic reconstruction image, perhaps someone will come forward and provide investigators with some relevant investigative "TIP".

The Clackamas County Sheriff's Office is seeking information about this unidentified female and is requesting anyone who recognizes this person, has information about this person and the ongoing investigation, to please contact the Clackamas County Sheriff's Office tip line, (503) 723.4949 and/or Detective D. Calhoun (503) 722.6746.

This image looks very similar to the picture of Jamie Grisim from the image found here: I realize she vanished from Vancouver in 1970, but if she was abducted, she could have been taken to Mt. Hood and left, since the projected date of death here is around 1976, could it be possible that the remains are slightly older, to be those of Jaime from 1970?
