Native women use innovative methods to raise awareness of missing, murdered Indigenous women

Marita Growing Thunder read a letter to her murdered aunt. Her aunt taught her how to make dresses. She should still be here today.

Tearing up while she spoke, Growing Thunder remembered her aunt’s life and the last moment she saw her. She often thinks about that last moment, she said, because she never wants to forget her aunt as others have.

Growing Thunder read this letter at an Indigenous Feminisms event at the University of Washington Intellectual House, an event space on campus dedicated to increasing Native student success at UW.

Dian Million, associate professor of American Indian studies at UW, and Luana Ross, professor of gender, women and sexuality studies at UW, help plan the Indigenous Feminisms series. This series is intended to elevate the voices of Indigenous women because the lives of those women are silenced, said Casey Wynecoop, assistant director of the Intellectual House. Growing Thunder spoke at the

Gouldsboro skull, found in 2015, ID’d as missing Connecticut man

A human skull discovered more than two years ago in Wayne County is that of a Connecticut man who disappeared in 2011, Coroner Edward Howell said Monday.

The remains were positively identified as those of George Julian Rymko of Waterbury, Connecticut, using DNA testing, Howell said.

A hunter found the skull April 28, 2015, in woods near 827 Main St., Gouldsboro, and contacted authorities. No other remains were recovered.

According to the National Missing and Unidentified Persons System, or NamUs, Rymko, who was 49 at the time, was last seen alive Jan. 22, 2011, in Scranton.

His vehicle, a blue 1999 Chevrolet Tahoe with Connecticut plates, was located at a Gouldsboro truck stop about two weeks later.

Howell said a forensic anthropologist who obtained a DNA sample from the skull compared it to a DNA sample submitted by a blood relative of Rymko, which yielded

Governor Cuomo Signs Otis/Savino Missing Persons Bill

NEW YORK, NY — Legislation to require that reports of missing children and adults filed in New York be transmitted to the National Missing and Unidentified Remains System (NamUs) was signed into law by the Governor on November 29. The legislation, A8286B/S6739, was sponsored by Assemblyman Steve Otis (91st AD, Westchester County) and Senator Diane Savino (23rd SD, Staten Island).

The bill will promote more comprehensive sharing of missing persons data to aid law enforcement in the resolution of such cases and help families dealing with the heartbreak of a missing loved one.

The United States Department of Justice created NamUs to address the staggering number of human remains that go unidentified each year. In 2016, New York became the first state in the nation to require that all medical examiners and coroners report unidentified remains to the NamUs database through legislation sponsored by Assemblyman Otis and Senator Savino. Other states are

Tips sought to help identify remains found 23 years ago in Alcona County

CURTISVILLE – Investigators from the Michigan State Police (MSP) Alpena Post and the Alcona County Sheriff’s Department (ACSD) are seeking information to help identify human remains found in northern Michigan 23 years ago.

A bow hunter discovered the skeletal remains in October 1994 while walking in a wooded area off Bamfield Road, between Curtisville and the Alcona Dam, according to police. 

The ACSD was the lead investigating agency, with the MSP crime lab assisting in the recovery of the remains from the scene.

Michigan State University anthropologists have determined the remains to be that of a female, 30-50 years old, who was approximately 4 ft. 7 in. to 5 ft.  6 in. tall.

She was likely of European ancestry, but no population group should be excluded, according to authorities.

Evidence of a fracture to the skull indicates she may have experienced some type of trauma at or
