Conservation Corps crew, deadhead or homeless those are your three choices! Not really, but those are the clues you have about who I am and most likely one or more of them is possible.
Was I part of the California Conservation Corps crew Delta 5? I was found with a shirt that clearly represented the Delta 5 of the California Conservation Corps, or so Law Enforcement determined. At first the California Conservation Corps (known to some as CCC) refused to provide any information. They required law enforcement to obtain a warrant to view the roster for that crew which was active from 1998 to 2006. After the records were finally received Law Enforcement could rule out that I was a member of that crew. Wonder why CCC made them jump through those hoops. Maybe I was part of Conservation Corps, but not that crew. Maybe I knew someone who was part of that Delta 5, like a boyfriend?
Why could I be a deadhead? First you have to know who the Grateful Dead is to understand the term deadhead. They found me with a Grateful Dead jacket. In turn, one could assume I was a deadhead. Then again, one could simply think I was a homeless person who got the jacket from a shelter. Is that really possible? You really think a Grateful Dead fan gave their jacket to charity? Even if the jacket was completely worn out, which you really have no way of knowing, but even if, come on!
Was I a homeless person? This could possibly explain both clothing items that would have no connection to either the Grateful Dead or the California Conservation Corps. See shelters, thrift stores, etc is a great way for the homeless to clothe themselves. So sure it’s possible that the clothes have no significance. Then again, many deadheads go wandering around. Many deadheads end up in not so nice living circumstances all the time. Many teens run away to follow the Grateful Dead and then are stuck out on their own, hence homeless.
Maybe I worked for or volunteered for the California Conservation Crew, was a huge fan of the Grateful Dead, and had some characteristics that implied I could be homeless. Anything is possible.
By now you are probably wondering why I can’t simply tell you which one is the right answer. The reason for is that I was killed in 2004. A fisherman near Tyler Island Road, Isleton, California found my skeletal remains on March 29, 2008. So it’s going to be up to Law Enforcement with the help of the media, and the public to figure out who I am.
In order to figure that out a few details might be helpful. The coroner determined that I was a Caucasian female possibly with Asian or African influence. I was somewhere between thirty to forty five years old. I stood anywhere from 5’3 to 5’8. Quite a range for you! Hopefully my jewelry and clothing (previously discussed) will help narrow it down a bit:
“Clothing: … a blue "Delta Fire Crew" sweatshirt with two crossed fireman's axes and the number 5 on the left chest area, a "Grateful Dead" jacket and jeans.
Jewelry: … beaded necklace with a crouching frog, a white metal bracelet with green heart charms. Most of her jewelry was white metal and included bangle bracelets and a sword charm.”
What do you think? Was I part of the California Conservation Corps? Was I a deadhead? Was I homeless? Or was I combination of all three?
Does it really matter? What I was, was someone’s daughter. I want to find my identity and my way home. Please help me do that by sharing this information with as many people as humanly possible. If you can, hit the key areas like the CCC and the deadheads. You never know when you might find that one person who knows exactly who I am.
