    Could this be Michael Benavides?

    Not in NamUs


    • He has a very strong resemblance to the UID.
    • His age (22) is slightly below the lower end of the age range.
    • His height (5'7") is within 1 inch of the UID (5'8" Per NamUs, )
    • DLC (06-Jan-1995) is reasonably close to Est. Date of Death (Fall/Winter 94)
    • His hair is dark and shoulder-length.
    • His ethnicity is listed as Hispanic, but he does appear to have Native American facial characteristics.
    • Cove, Arkansas (just past the TX border) is about 500 miles from San Antonio (See Link Below).
    • He is not listed on the NamUs exclusions list for this UID.

    ETA: Although the UID is in CODIS, I see no indication (DoeNet or NamUs) that MB is in CODIS.
    ETA: I just called it in to Chris Edwards of the Arkansas Crime Lab (left on Telephone Message Machine).

    How certain are they that this is a Native male? Namus lists him as a white male

    Syringe and razor blade are sometimes tools for heroin.
    Opinions expressed are strictly my own (who else would they belong to???)

    If he's a white guy, Daniel Lacy Fagg fits most of the parameters:

    He disappeared summer 1994 (exact time unknown), is 38 years old, 5'8" with long dark brown hair. He was from Wichita, KS, about a six-hour drive, but it's not known when/where he was last seen.

    Not sure about the resemblance especially with Fagg's beard, but the UID's nose has to be an approximation.

    This guy's stats are kinda close. The only thing that is off is the missing man had a pace maker. I do not know how decomposed the UID was but perhaps it fell out or was taken out?

    The syringe and razor blade are also used by meth users. Meth became a very popular drug in the early 90's in small towns in Arkansas.
