    CO - Saguache Co., WhtMale 1550UMCO, 30-40, 'Fort Washington Maryland' TShirt, Oct'02

    http://www.doenetwork.org/cases/1550umco.html

    Unidentified White Male


    The victim was discovered on October 12, 2002 in Saguache, Colorado

    Vital Statistics

    Estimated age: 30-40 years old
    Approximate Height and Weight: 6'5"; 235-240 lbs.
    Distinguishing Characteristics: Possibly brown hair. No identifying marks, tattoos or broken bones were detected.
    Clothing: A Harley Davidson T-shirt and black briefs. Fort Washington, Maryland was printed on the back of the T-shirt.
    Dentals: The man had no teeth and no dentures were found at the scene.
    Fingerprints: Available


    Case History:

    The victim was located lying in a ravine in the Rio Grande Forest, just off a dirt road about 14 miles west of Saguache.
    The body was partly frozen when found October 12, 2002 and it has not been determined how long it may have lain in the ditch.
    The man was wrapped in black plastic secured with duct tape and had been wrapped in a handmade, antique quilt.
    An autopsy attributed the cause of death to two gunshot wounds to the head, fired at close range.

    Authorities over the years have speculated that because the man was found not long after the last Hells Angels rally was held in Gunnison, he could have ridden to the rally from out of state and met with foul play in that time frame. But until an identification is made, it will be hard to determine whether there is any real connection to the rally.



    Interesting UID case, not too many options to choose from. Found Craig Allen Reed to be the closest possibility based on the height,weight, and age of the UID. No indication however if Craig Reed had dentures and/or no teeth. Thoughts?

    His chin sure looks right, and I'd say the facial shape is close enough.



    Everything else (aside from dentals) looks good. The physical characteristics section is quite thin. So the fact that it doesn't mention dentures or no teeth doesn't mean that's not the case.

    Overall, looks good to me. I think I looked at this case once, but 'll take a look again to see what I can find.


    ETA: Nothing else came up on my screen that looked very promising.

    Thanks Carl. I went back until Oct. 2001 on the Charley site and noone else listed was remotely close to 6'5" other then Craig. I found a few others who resemble the drawing, but no mention of height and weight for either man...I'm going to look into them a little more (and post if anything adds up).

    I found six others from 1999 to 2002 who meet (or come close to) the age and height requirements:

    Patrick Sukeforth

    Boating Accident - Not our guy.

    Daniel Joseph Lahrman

    Doesn't look like him to me.

    Wesley Barrett Tedder

    Doesn't look like him to me.

    Scott Anthony Gilchrist

    Could be, but nothing jumps out there.

    James Vincent Bierman

    Apparent landslide victim. Not our guy.

    Wayne George Pavlick

    Could be. Fat on face may explain lack of resemblance to recon, but nothing to sieze upon.

    I found a missing Canadian- Gregory Brushett who disappeared in 1999 who may be a possibility.

    While he is listed as being 6'8"; is was a member of an motorcycle club.

    ok, might have found this guy.

    Steven Gabbard, missing from Kentucky June 10, 2002, was 39 y.o., between 6'2"-6'4", around 200 lbs, most definitely a biker and as per the Namus profile had upper dentures. hair color is stated to be black but the picture definitely looks brown to me.

    among the clothing and accessories he is listed with are:

    Black Outlaws T-shirt & Leather vest and blue jeans
    Black Harley boots
    black wallet with Harley Davidson on it with a silver chain

    https://www.findthemissing.org/cases/9476/1/

    the Doe Network page for the UID mentioned a Hells Angel rally, which apparently started shortly after July 22, 2002:

    http://www.v-twinforum.com/forums/v-...s-allowed.html

    that is just one month after Gabbard was last seen in KY.

    I realize the weight is off a bit, and there is no mention of lower dentures, but there seems to be many things pointing his way.

    I did not Masnitram. can you do a side by side with the images? for some reason I either have not been able to figure that out or I just can't do it with my laptop.

    the biggest negative with Gabbard is that he was listed as having upper dentures and the UID had no teeth at all.

    I haven't figured out how to do a side-by-side on my laptop either...

    However I did zip an email to the Namus case manager regarding Mr. Gabbard, his known associations with the Hells Angels and the time line is too good to pass up IMO.

    I agree that there's enough here to make me curious. Good find webrocket. Let's hope it's a match.

    the UID is still not in Namus and Gabbard's profile is still up. I assume you heard nothing back Masnitram?

    I haven't heard anything. Might be time to resubmit Craig Reed and Mr. Gabbard....honestly though I think Gabbard is the best match out of the two of them, but it wouldn't hurt to submit both.

    I still don't see the UID in Namus and Gabbard is still there. did you ever follow up Masnitram?

    This UID has been added to NamUs. NamUs UP #15756

    When I saw this UID added I thought Steven Gabbard is a really likely match. After searching Websleuths I see that other people had the same thought.
