A few general announcements

Yashajara Angelino‘s casefile has eight new pictures of her, taken from Yashajara’s own social media pages.

I have decided that, in cases where the MP is wearing earrings in their photos, to note in the distinguishing characteristics that they have pierced ears. I am not going to do the same with nose rings, eyebrow rings, lip rings, etc., though, since a lot of people take those rings out and let the piercings close eventually, while most people — at least, most women — who get their ears pierced keep them pierced for life.

To this end, yesterday I went through my casefiles, beginning with the letter A, looking for pierced ears. Inevitably I was tempted to run names through Newspapers.com, which explains why there were so many updated cases for today with last names starting with A. I’ll start on B later.

I have also made a few name corrections. It turns out the Millbrooks twins, Jeannette and Dannette, are actually the Millbrook twins. Marylou Bostwick was identified in all the numerous Newspapers.com articles I read as Mary Lou or, sometimes, just Mary, so when I updated her case I changed the name to Mary Lou Bostwick. (I also corrected the date of disappearance; it had been off by a few days.) And Crystal Dawn Morrison‘s sister told Ed Dentzel, who told me, that Crystal Dawn Morrison Prentice was not her legal name, so I corrected that too.

    I’ve had my eyebrow, navel, and tongue pierced. All of the piercings have been removed, but I have scars from every one of them. So it might be worth mentioning the piercings in case files.

      Thanks for letting me know. I’ve never had anything pierced, not even my ears, so I don’t really know how it works.

      Once Michael had a female roommate and I came walking into their house and she was all excited cause she’d gotten her labia pierced. And insisted on showing me…

        Oh dear god, no.

        She was a real weirdo. She was a nurse which I really don’t understand because she smoked pot all the time.

    I definitely agree with Fluttergirl. I removed my navel and eyebrow piercings, they closed but the scars remained. The same with my sister’s nose piercing

    Just a note of caution: it’s a good general rule, but doesn’t necessarily follow – especially with older women*. It used to be far more common than it is now for some people to wear clip-on earrings – and I still do, occasionally, because I inherited some. [*I have never personally been aware of a man wearing clip-on earrings, but that doesn’t mean it couldn’t happen!]
