The Los Angeles County coroner's office is seeking the public's help in identifying a woman whose remains were found last year in the Angeles National Forest after the Station fire. Coroner's officials on Wednesday released a composite sketch of the Jane Doe, who officials believe was a white or Latino woman between 20 and 40 at the time of death. The sketch was created using clay reconstruction technology. The woman's skull was found on Dec. 26 in the burned-out area below Angeles Forest Highway, two days after hikers discovered a male skull with an apparent bullet hole in the same area, officials said.

A few weeks ago, I wrote a column describing my encounter with teenage drug addicts. One young woman, Alice, said she'd been "using" since the age of 12. Now 19, she desperately wanted to get sober, but couldn't visualize what life without drugs might look like. She had no concept of a natural adult high. I thought of Alice last weekend while hiking with a friend. When I told Alice what I did for fun, such as long walks in the San Gabriels with good company and a picnic lunch, she replied that she hated the sun. Hmm. My friend and I passed many fellow hikers, all freckled, tanned or sunburned, in spite of various hats.
