You know, I think it's crazy that this poor woman has never been connected to Gary Ridgway. Think about it. Different agencies list her age as varying from 22 to 26. We don't know for sure when she disappeared, but it was sometime between 1982-84. These were the years where almost all of Ridgway's victims were killed. She hasn't been confirmed to have worked in the sex trade, but I say it's probable. She fits the profile of the victims almost perfectly. She vanished from Tacoma, where the green river killer sought his first victims.
I've already submitted her as a possible match for the remaining 3 unidentified women killed by Ridgway.
Welcome to the forum! Yeah it would make sense considering the time frame that Debra may have been a victim of Gary Ridgway. There's limited information about Debra and her life that I can find online so I don't want to make assumptions, but the sex trade is sadly an unfortunate scenario for many young women who go missing. Considering the time and area she disappeared from, I would find it very possible she ran into Ridgway somehow in some shape or form and I'm glad you submitted her as a possible victim.
