    I saw this guy's casefile added today to Charley:

    Steven Douglas Bunch

    http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/b/bunch_steven.html
    https://www.findthemissing.org/cases/5617/0

    There is not much info on the UID to compare. However, the age and race are consistent, and the timeframe is very close (7 days from DLC to Discovery with an approximate 2-4 day postmortem interval).

    The distance from Covington KY to Roane County TN is about 290 miles.

    I see that the UID is in CODIS, but from the notation in Steven’s NamUs DNA section indicates “available but not submitted”.

    I sent off an e-mail to Todd Matthews to see if these cases have ever been compared.

    Interesting cases Carl, nothing really to exclude this MP... quite a few possibilities on what may have occured to the MP.

    What strikes me regarding the UID. The manner of death was an automobile accident, so why no information on the vehicle involved in the accident? Was the uid the driver or a passenger? Very odd more information about the accident was not included in the doenet or NamUs info.

    Could it have been a hit and run accident and they don't know the vehicle? There should be some clothing info as well IMO. People don't usually get into car accidents undressed and it was not enough time for the clothing to disintegrate.

    The thing that makes it puzzling is the PM interval. It could be auto vs. pedestrian hit & run, but he would have to have been knocked to the side of the road out of view. But it also could have been a Grateful Dead Jason scenario - a hitchhiker in a car that crashed into an area not visible to traffic. Or it could have been a stolen car.

    I wish that information was added to the UID's profile. It would certainly help researching who he might be.

    His NamUs page has been updated to include the information that he was driving a car stolen from Palm Springs, CA and had a hand drawn map of that city. It also says he has a tattoo on his right forearm but it doesn't say what kind of tattoo.

    Daniel Muttscheller has a tattoo in the right spot, no DNA listed yet, his eye color is listed as brown.

    Greg Farmer was in Hawaii when he was LKA. The town he was trying to get back to (in 1983 when he went missing) is about 1.5 hours north of Palm Springs.

    The only publicly listed male MP missing from Riverside County CA (where Palm Springs is located) in the previous 3 years is Donald James Gregory.

    But there is a nearly 3-year gap in the timeline.
