In forensic artists at Dundee University created an image of how she may have looked based on her bone structure according to one article she was left badly disfigured by the hit and run. The image was published in Newspapers and seen by couple in Christchurch, Dorset. David and Barbara Liversedge contacted the police as they believed the woman in the picture was a French student who had stayed with them for 6 months back in David was able to recount how he had met her 37 years earlier.
David picked her up, recalling she was wearing an afghan coat. During the course of the journey her lack of a place to stay came up in conversation and David offered her a room at the cottage he shared with Barbara in Bedfordshire. Her name was Odile Ludic no one is sure if this is the correct spelling , she was French and from either north Paris or to the north of Paris, and in her early 20s.
She spoke fondly of her mother and sister back home, but never mentioned a father or much else about her background. The couple helped her find work at a local packing factory on the Henlow Trading Estate and Odile is believed to have been dating a local man who died sometime prior to After her 6 months staying with them David said she moved to a terraced street in Cambridge, she had enrolled on a course studying English at a language school there. Barbara believes Odile was coming to visit them when she died as the incident occurred a few miles from their home.
Since then the case has gone cold, there have been no updates and the case is still listed on the Missing Persons Unit database. This would suggest that her family, prior to moving near Paris, could be originally from the Morbihan department in Brittany. Might not be anything, though On one hand you'd like to think with Interpol being involved they'd at least run checks for anyone born around with that name or variations of. But time and time again so many cases go unsolved for years because someone didn't do something as obvious as that.
It's possible the couple got it wrong, 37 years is a long time and it's pretty exotic sounding compared to your average English name. It's a shame the boyfriend had died before the appeal, sounds like out of anyone he might have had a bit more insight or known a few important details.
The no shoes part disturbs me for some reason, she had a distinctive coat but no shoes? The impression I got is she was most likely trying to escape an assault or rape when she was hit. I dread to think that she could have been hit by the person she was trying to get away from.

Something about it just doesn't sit right. It's possible her shoes and handbag flew off when she was hit and they were missed when searching or were dragged miles down the road by the other traffic. My first impression: She wasn't wearing shoes because they hurt her feet. She's dressed up, right? Nice coat. I can't tell you how many times I have gone out places and wore a pair of heels that looked hot, but were painful.
She may have taken them off to walk. I agree to a point. I've known more than one quirky girl Yes, even at night.

All of them were travelling types. Free spirits. Saying that, I wonder if her shoes flew off and weren't recovered due to poor policing? I've watched many tv specials on Jane Does and it always seems horribly sad to me that someone can just die and no one seems to be looking for them. Style see all. Trench Coat.
