How about John William Wagner for starters
Location is right (State Road 89 goes right through Kanab) .
Timeframe is right (about six months)
Height is close (5'10" compared to UID's 6'0" estimate)
Age (34) is right
Hair Color might be.
James Zinza is another. (This is the second time this week, his name came up on one of my screens).
He doesn't have the flat looking nose like the recon.
But the timeline, age, and height are about right. And he has greying brown hair (indicated in his distinguishing characteristics).

Brings up a good point, though. I wonder how many of these male UIDs stay that way because they wore a full beard in life. I know a man who's been married 40 years and his wife has never seen him without a beard. I was married to my husband 7 years before I saw him without a goatee. He looks completely different without it. It took me a long time to get used to it.I can't complain but sometimes I still do. Life's been good to me so far. - Joe Walsh

James's profile states that he usually wore Levi's, the UID is said to have on Blue denim trousers, button fly waist size 33... just trying to think outside the box a little...

The DNA is now in NamUs for this UID.
I also noticed this in the casefile:
Other items found with remains: paper from Flagstaff Justice court
CarlK, I just noticed that Zinza's profile indicated he spent time in Flagstaff.

I have always felt that John William Wagner seemed like the obvious one here. My question is about DNA in NAMUS. The UID says that DNA has been completed and entered (Complete MtDNA and nearly complete STR). Wagner says "Sample Submitted- Test Complete". Does this mean he is an automatic rule out?
