    What the heck were all the pins for? That would probably help out a lot. I have to believe they've looked into that.

    They are basically a souvenir for places you have visited but it doesn't always mean you have been there. Sometimes people just collect and trade them.

    The pins are all from the Vancouver Exposition of 1986 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Expo_86), except for the CN Tower in Toronto. It's true that he might have obtained them from somebody else, but my first guess would be that he was attending the expo from another country and didn't make it home. Wish we knew when the estimated date of death was, though -- if he didn't die until 1995, my theory won't hold water.

    According to wikipedia, Expo 86 occurred from May 2, 1986 until October 13th, 1986.

    Expo 86 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    So that may help narrow down the window a bit, as it is not clear the post mortem interval. Date found: December 3, 1995.

    The location appears to be in this general area: http://goo.gl/maps/atuG4RssSQ72

    I did find a missing boxer in the right time frame: Karl Hotchkiss who disappeared from the UK in 1993. http://doenetwork.org/cases-int/569dmuk.html He's a bit younger than the UID's estimate and a bit taller but not far off on either stat. Fair resemblance to the sketch.
