Update: "Cinder Hill Cindy" Has a Real Name

Her name was Julie Renee Windhorn. She was 33 years old when she died, on a nondescript cinder hill on the Navajo Army Depot grounds west of Flagstaff. The cause of death has been listed as "undetermined," but nothing is being ruled out.

Read the Arizona Daily Sun story and see a photo of Julie here.

I went to college with Julie and just found out about this from a mutual friend as I don't live in the USA. Do you have any more information. I would appreciate it if you could contact me: halbach_merz@yahoo.com

Thank you
