An MP case I plan to add today, I’ve got a slight problem with: the sources say she was wearing a hoodie with “Jimmy Hendrix” printed on the front. But the legendary musician spelled his name Jimi. It seems much more likely that the missing woman’s hoodie also said “Jimi” rather than “Jimmy” but my sources say otherwise.

This reminds me of the time when the MP was wearing a Bowdin College sweatshirt and I knew that no such place existed, but a Bowdoin College did, and it was pronounced bo-din, so I thought it must be a mistake.

Thoughts, anyone?

    If she bought the hoodie someplace and it was mass produced it probably did say Jimi. But if she put the letters on herself or somebody who didn’t know any better did it then maybe it realy did say Jimmy. If I was wrint her bup I’d say Jimi b/c its way more likely the hoodie was bought ready made and was done right.

    My guess is that someone unfamiliar with the Jimi spelling thought it was an error and “corrected” it. Either that, it the shirt manufacturers made a spelling error (which could happen), but I think a typists error is more likely.

    I’d just put that she was wearing a hoodie that said “Jimmy (or Jimi) Hendrix”. Just put a note in your description that it could be either or. That way people can be on the lookout for either of them and nothing gets overlooked either way.

      Sounds like a good idea. *does so*

    Maegan Hembree has the same hair as Gemma Teller from Sons of Anarchy.

      If you’re talking about the bright highlights, that’s not uncommon at all. Rachel Cooke has the same.

    That’s is a good solution Becky.

    This reminds me of Daisy Doe, found on 5/7/88 in Fort Gibson, Oklahoma. I am not sure if the writing on her shirt, “Love is like a butterfly. It goes wherever it pleases and pleases wherever it goes,” is connected to anything, but I came up with a possible hypothesis none the less.

    From my unidentified person profile:

    “Investigators stated that early leads lead them to several adult dance clubs in Tulsa and Muskogee. Those tips led deputies to believe Daisy may have been working as an exotic dancer. Club owners and patrons were questioned but ultimately none of the tips lead to her identity.

    Authorities traced her white pullover shirt with, “Love is like a butterfly. It goes wherever it pleases and pleases wherever it goes,” on the front, to Dollywood.

    “That was the only place we could ever find that sold them,” Sheriff Gross told the Muskogee Phoenix in 2008.

    Dollywood, which is located in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee opened in 1986, two years before Daisy was found. Expansions to the theme park coupled with its new name substantially increased the parks attendance; with 1.3 million people visiting in 1986.

    The only possible connection between Pigeon Forge and Fort Gibson would be Interstate 40. It travels across the country passing by Knoxville, Tennessee and Muskogee, Oklahoma. If Daisy was a adult dancer, its possible she traveled a strippers circuit along the I-40 corridor”

    For those interested, a facial reconstruction and the full post.

      Useless fact of the night part 1: The song quoted on the aforementioned shirt is a Dolly Parton song which was also covered and used as the theme song to the seminal ’70s – ’80s British sitcom “Butterflies” (which starred two British TV legends, Geoffrey Palmer and Nicholas Lyndhurst). Anyway, that might explain the seeming randomness of those words being used for a Dollywood tourist souvenir.

        Hi Diane,

        Thanks for the information about the song. Now I know why investigators focused on Dollywood.

    Peter, I just looked up Daisy Doe b/c I never heard of her before. Doe Network doesn’t have much about her but I found a news story that did.
    It says she was five foot eight and weighed 188. That’s very heavy for a stripper, at least for one that wanted to be a success at it. It depends on the club she went to, I guess. Probably the low rent ones didn’t care as long as she showed up and took it off.
    Dollywood’s a real “redneck” tourist attraction but I don’t mean it ina bad way. Dollywood and Branson and Silver Dollar City.
    Maybe she went to Dollywood but maybe not; maybe she got the shirt at goodwill, or stole it from somebody or maybe even just saw somebody else wearing and went to some t-shirt place and had it made up for her.

      The Facebook pages says 118lbs.

    • Peter Henderson Jr. August 10, 2014 / 5:59 pm

      Dear Princess Shantae

      That would be quite on the rubinesque side for a stripper. However her NamUs profile ( # UP 6658) lists her as being a estimated 6’8” tall and 115 pounds with a size 36 bra. Sounds like she could have been a adult dancer to me.

    • Peter Henderson Jr. August 10, 2014 / 6:19 pm

      Sorry 5’8” tall and 118 pounds Lol. Need to double check my posts before I hit send.

    • Diane August 11, 2014 / 3:08 am

      Useless fact of the night, part 2: Dollywood also attracts a strong gay contingent based on the fact that Ms. Parton is a big gay icon. In fact, there was an entire special on Dollywood taped for the BBC and hosted by the gay Irishman/BBC institution Graham Norton, who himself is a huge Dolly fan. Whatever he thought of Pigeon Forge itself remains a mystery.

    That reminds me of Caledonia Jane Doe and the strangeness of the place it was said that one article of clothing of hers probably came from. I want to say that a California place name I recently came across is probably what was meant by that place name and hazard a guess that the case info there came from the longhand notes of someone with terrible handwriting, but maybe it was “Vermont” after all and this sun-kissed young girl spent a rather long time in the cold Northeast. *shrug* Who knows? And one would’ve hoped that this sort of thing wouldn’t have happened anymore now that we’re in the age of the computer and typing notes and all, but maybe that’s asking a bit much.

    Hi Meaghan,

    I just saw your post on Maegan Hembree. I think you covered the sweatshirt wording dispute.

    For the record here is my clothing and tattoo description

    Clothing/Jewelry: When last seen Maegan was wearing pajama pants or blue jeans, a light gray hoodie sweatshirt with a purple Jimi Hendrix design on it and black tennis shoes.
    (Using the description I found implies it could be a picture of Hendrix rather the his name.)

    Tattoos/Piercings: Maegan’s ears are pierced. She has a large Houston Astros logo tattoo on the back of her neck, a tattoo on her left shoulder as well as a “biohazard” tattoo on her lower left leg.

    One thing I mentioned that you don’t is, “ Maegan has posted on a dating website “Single in Lubbock, Texas“, using the nickname 88Buttercup88, but it’s unknown if the friend she was going to see that night met her through the site.

    There she says, “I’m fun loving with a strong mind. I know what I want and I don’t back down from a challenge. I will not be lied to and I don’t play games! I need someone strong. I wear stilettos on a regular basis. I can change my own flat, change my oil, or jump start my car while in my heels. I want a man with rough hands and a soft heart. Anything else you’ll have to ask.”

    Full profile,. I will need to update it to include the person of interest
