Skeleton found in Ontario well
Bones could be key to decades-old mystery
Dresden residents are wondering if skeletal remains discovered in a dormant well Wednesday are those of a man who went missing decades ago."Maybe this will solve the Dresden mystery after all," said a passerby, who wished to remain anonymous. "That's the first thing that came across my mind -- Clint Brown.They could never find him, they looked for years.

What is it about Canada that these victims of decades-old murder cases are found in wells?
Here is another one dating back to about 1900 to 1920

My parents live just outside Dresden on Kent Bridge Rd.
I thought it would be bigger news, but my parents seem to think the police have been given an indication on who it may be, based on archival missing persons cases.
Also remember that Dresden Cemetary runs the bank of the river, and a couple years ago there was terrible erosion that caused numerous caskets/grave markers to be unearthed and swallowed by the river. A new retaining wall was installed. Unsure if all were recovered, so maybe that is why there isn't more interest?
I also wonder if this person is linked to the Underground Railroad, and/or the hiding of slaves during that awful period of history. Many black people sought refuge in Dresden area (Uncle Tom's Cabin is located in Dresden).
I will ask our family friend, who lives on Croton Line, and whose house backs the cemetary.
If anyone has specific questions regarding the area, please let me know and I will ask my Dad who has lived there for 68 years.

It seems there is more than one Clint Brown missing. It would not be this one because he disappeared from Waterford, Ontario in 2008.
09-11-2010, 07:15 PM #11Canadian investigators say military dental records from World War II have identified the skeletal remains found at the bottom of an Ontario well in April.
The records confirmed the bones as those of Clint Brown, a World War II veteran who was last seen in 1975 on his way to a doctor's appointment, Chatham-Kent police announced Friday.
