    please look into this: http://news3lv.com/news/local/who-is-jane-doe-teens-body-found-in-desert-outside-las-vegas

    The image is only a COMPOSITE, but looks very similar to Asha.

    Has anyone considered Irvine County Jane Doe as a possible march for Asha? They do have Doe’s DNA:

    https://www.google.com/amp/www.ocregister.com/2016/05/17/who-is-jane-doe-woman-found-burned-7-years-ago-in-irvine-still-unidentified/amp/

    This case haunts me and I hope the Degree family finds their little girl…

    • I did check into that case a few years ago and called the Irvine authorities, sending Asha’s info to them to look into but they obviously didn’t think it was a match since that case is still up. But thanks so much for your concern! We need all the input we can get to solve Asha’s case.
