Why would a doctor in NC think to suggest Judy as a candidate to ID that body? Even if he remembered seeing her missing persons flyer? Does this mean that her flyer was disseminated all the way down in NC, too? That In itself seems a little weird, but maybe it isn’t. What seems unequivocally weird is why a person in North Carolina would suspect an unidentified body found in NC to be a missing woman who lived in Boston and Vintage Quarantine Edition September 1996 24th Birthday Shirt last seen in New Jersey. Like, wut? That was one of the weirdest parts to me. I live in Florida so I guess next time a body is found I’ll call the police and say “I think that could be Maura Murray!” And if it turned out to be I would not be that surprised. The fact that Maura has still not been found has led myself and others to think that there is a decent possibility she died far from the accident scene.

I’ve often wondered that too. I remember that the Unsolved Mysteries segment on this case stated that someone in Asheville claimed they’d seen Judy shopping at a store (I think a knick knack shop of some kind) either the day she disappeared or the day after. But that raises questions too…would you remember a random person in a store nine months later? At the time nobody really knew Judy was missing, let alone that she might be in NC. I’m leaning towards misidentification of the body too. Dental records aren’t infallible, Vintage Quarantine Edition September 1996 24th Birthday Shirt and as another poster mentioned a lot of people Judy’s age have arthritic knees. I have experience with early onset Alzheimer’s and this is definitely possible. It’s not unheard of for someone as young as Judy to begin experiencing symptoms, and someone with Alzheimer’s can certainly end up 600 miles from home without proper supervision.

I’m assuming the North Carolina doctor (he’s been described as an ER doctor) saw the flier when his hospital got it. Then, when he read the article about the Jane Doe found near Asheville, he put two and two together and alerted Philadelphia police. It’s possible that if he hadn’t done that, it may have taken longer to identify the Jane Doe or it may never have been identified at all. — I don’t find it weird, necessarily, but it’s definitely lucky. Also, Judy apparently had two very vague connections to NC that may actually have nothing to do with the case. According to Wikipedia: However, if this were the case I would expect more witnesses. She likely would have been confused, paranoid, and panicking. Vintage Quarantine Edition September 1996 24th Birthday Shirt Likely would have asked several people for help and had memorable encounters with them. But, that’s just based on my own experiences.
