    GA - Forsyth Co., HispMale Skeletal, permanently bent finger, Dec'11

    http://www.wsbtv.com/news/news/local...-county/nGCcg/

    The wooded area is just off Georgia 400 and McFarland Road, just inside Forsyth County near the Fulton County line.

    Authorities estimate the bones could have been on the land for eight to 10 years, or more. Besides the bones, investigators also found some clothes scattered through the area and are assuming they are linked to the remains.
    This is not far from me. Trying to figure out the easiest method to help search for possibilities, but I'm not a regular in this area of the forums.

    If your local reporters new about NamUs, they would know there are at least two missing persons from Alpharetta:

    Kenneth Hill:

    Here's one more, missing from Johns Creek, but he lived in Alpharetta.

    Orlando Jordan

    The 10-year timeframe seems a little long considering that clothing was found with the remains. One would think that clothing would deteriorate over a decade.

    Forsyth County authorities said they will be checking with the nearby North Fulton communities of Alpharetta and Johns Creek to see if any missing persons reports match.

    Hmm...well, I live here and read the news (been on WS for 9 years now) and I've never heard of any of these three people. Or, I should say, I don't remember hearing about them. So when LE says, "no one immediately comes to mind" I get what he's saying. ***ETA: there are no missing persons from Forsyth Co from 2002-2006 in NAMUS. Weird.

    I did think of Justin Gaines - it wouldn't be far from where he disappeared - but if they think the remains could be 10 years old then it's not him. I wonder how accurate that is? Can they be more specific with forensic testing?

    Also, someone commented on the article Kimster posted that her son was missing. But she doesn't say who her son is.

    The problem is that it is so close to GA 400 that the person could have disappeared from much further away, even if it doesn't turn out to be a homicide.

    I hope they can figure out who this is so their family can at least lay them to rest respectfully.

    She said that her son was missing for seven years from Cherokee County, and had a front tooth capped, and metal screws in his left elbow.

    I checked my list for males missing from Georgia from 30-Dec-2003 to 30-Dec-2004, and came up with 8 missing people. None of them fit that description.

    I also checked the UID listing for males in Georgia with capped teeth and/or medical hardware. I found one black male with medical hardware in the knee, but none with MH in the elbow.

    I get what LE is saying too. I'm sure whoever they interviewed is knee deep in this case, and several others and doesn't know every case from the beginning of time from memory.

    My comment was more to the fact that the news media doesn't really seem to know much about NamUs. Sorry if it came off differently.

    [Forsyth County Sheriff’s Capt. Tim] House added that authorities think the remains are likely those of a Hispanic man. The way they were scattered, it appeared an animal may have gotten to them at some point.

    I ran a search for a Hispanic Male from Georgia last known alive from 2002-2008, and found nobody fitting those conditions.

    No luck in Alabama, Tennessee, or South Carolina, either.

    When I looked at Florida, I came up with the following possibilities.

    Orestes Perez (Miami, FL): https://www.findthemissing.org/cases/10145/6/

    Alberto Batista (Auburndale, FL): https://www.findthemissing.org/cases/5721/4/

    Humberto Giraldo (North Miami Beach, FL): https://www.findthemissing.org/cases/11639/2/

    Juan Lugo (Hialeah, FL): https://www.findthemissing.org/cases/12104/1/

    In North Carolina:

    Jose Trochez (Gastonia, NC): https://www.findthemissing.org/cases/10591/2/

    Jose Espinoza (Charlotte, NC): https://www.findthemissing.org/cases/2454/1/

    All of these are quite far away, with Jose Trochez being the closest at 206 miles.

    We also have to remember that it might not be someone who has ever been reported missing. Since they don't know about a COD, the body could also belong to someone who died of natural causes or an accident.

    He could have been homeless or someone who moves from place to place frequently, or just someone who doesn't have anyone close enough to file a missing persons report.

    Also, we have a large population of illegal immigrants here. If the family is not here legally, they may have been afraid to report him missing.

    Whoever he is, I hope they can find out so his family can lay him to rest.

    It is possible to identify race based on the skull, which was found in this case.

    http://www.forensicsciencetechnician...-to-id-a-body/

    scientists can determine a person’s sex and race from skull features.
