    RI - Exeter - Human Remains found in woods, Dec 2011

    "Rhode Island state police are now looking through missing persons reports to try to identify human remains found in the woods in Exeter."

    I am not finding any recent missing people in RI or nearby Mass or Conn. Maybe someone here with more experience and resources can find something.

    I know LE in CT has been looking for Michael Mongillo, a man missing from Bristol, CT since October 24th, so that seems to be a bit too short of a time if the remains are determined to have been there for 2-12 months.

    There is only 6 missing persons' cases listed in RI that I could find on NamUs. Other sites list more of the same.

    The UID age of 35-55 begs the question why he's wearing a hoodie with Class of 2009 on it. Is he a parent of someone that graduated in 2009? I can't imagine that a shirt like that - if issued or purchased from a school - doesn't have that school's name on it somewhere.

    I wonder if police could locate the manufacturer of that sweatshirt and see where it came from and/or who could've ordered it.

    I earned a third college degree in 2008 at age 49. I didn't have a "Class of" sweatshirt, but only because I was too cheap to buy one.

    I had thought of something like that as well Techwriter - if you did choose to buy one, did it have the school name on it?

    This guy could definitely have gotten a college degree at an older age of course. Still, odd there's no school identification on it.

    I am wondering if they were iron on letters that fell off or if the garment was too degraded to read much more than that.

    Just imagining what he looked like with the various articles of clothing he was found in sounds like maybe homeless? Esp. with the no teeth part of it? And quite possibly why no matching MP report.

    This UID was found right near the former state mental hospital, known as the Ladd School, of which much historical information is available on the internet, as it is known as a haunted site, one which I explored in my teens, as many from the area also did. It is quite creepy but I suppose that's a discussion for another time.

    Currently a Job Corps training school and some other facilities including a drug rehab center are located here. I am wondering if the UID is someone connected with the rehab.

    The sweatshirt with the graduating year 2009 on it made me think that it could possibly have been a homeless person who got it from a Salvation Army store or even a dumpster.

    That is interesting about Ladd School.

    I keep checking local news sites for any updates to this case, with no success thus far. I hope this man's identity is found soon.

    Gerald Peasha, Jr. MP#8582
    Gerald (Jerry) Peasha, Jr. was last seen on April 4, 2010. He may have traveled to any New England state looking for work. Jerry has a thin build and thin hair and will be wearing strong prescription eyeglasses.

    Height 69" to 71" LKA 44yrs. From Leominster, MA which is approximately 79 miles from Exeter, RI.

    I am fairly new at posting in WS, but I got to thinking about the sweatshirt (class of 2009). My husband works outdoors as a tree trimmer and I often find old sweatshirts at yardsales for him to use as work clothing for when it is cooler. I didn't find any information on whether Mr. Peasha was missing his upper teeth, but dental information is available.

    Aside from the question mark on whether or not he is missing his teeth, everything looks consistent.

    You have the option of calling or e-mailing authorities on the Missing Person side or the UID side.

    On the UID side, the news article indicates that the contact is the Rhode Island State Police at (401) 444-1155. There is no e-mail address indicated in the contact.

    If you prefer contacting the MP side, you can e-mail the Law Enforcement contact on Gerald Peasha's NamUs MP casefile. The contact is Detective Richard Gallant of the Leominster Police Department - rgallant@police.leominster-ma.gov, Tel: 978-534-7560 ext 343.
