    OH - Garfield Heights, BlkMale UP1878,18-21, note from Cynthia & Boo Boo, Sep'91

    This case has been on my mind for a while:

    http://doenetwork.org/cases/1117umoh.html

    Victim was found September 11, 1991 behind a house on E. 81st Street in Garfield Heights, Ohio.

    Description: Black Male, 18-21 yo. Light complexion. 5'5" - 5'7"
    He wore a red short sleeved shirt and 34W x 30L blue jeans

    In his shoe was a note that read:

    For Daddy
    We can't wait to see you!
    Love, Cynthia and Boo Boo
    Miss you!


    (picture of note and shoes at Doe Network)

    This UID obviously had someone who loved him....can we bring him home??

    The Doe Network says the following about the UID --

    Short tightly curled, suggestive of black type hair. Light complexion.
    I wonder if there were skeletal factors (such as the shape of his skull) that indicated that he was African-American? If he was a non-black person with curly dark hair, this could be why he hasn't been identified.

    I tried to think like that too, but I still didn't find any really good possibles on Charley. The area he was found in is a very racially mixed area so anything and everything is possible.

    I'm just not seeing any African Americans missing in Ohio around that time frame whatsoever.

    Wonder if Cynthia is the girlfriend and Boo Boo the pet name for their child together (or perhaps even child yet to be born).

    Well it says "light complexion" so I assume there was still skin?

    Wonder if the shoes might be a clue? I've just trawled sneakerpedia until my eyes hurt, and I can't find anything exactly like them, although they are similar to the Jordan 'Grape' shoes made in '90/91 - perhaps they're rare?

    Another thought...I have some Italian-American friends who have amazing, tight curly hair which you could loosely correlate with an afro type hair. I guess Italian-American heritage could account for the 'light complexion' too?

    It may be that he is not from our area. The note tends to make me think he is from somewhere else.

    Good point. Like he was carrying it around because Cynthia and Boo Boo were not nearby.

    Recently released from jail, maybe? Trying to figure out why you'd carry a note in your shoe like that. Guessing he'd been carrying it around like that for a while.

    I'm not thinking he had it there for too long or else it would have been more worn and dirty? Right?

    I had thought about recently release from jail because of the note being in the shoe. I don't even know if that makes any sense, but it popped in my mind too. He kept that letter, it meant something to him.

    I wish we knew the COD.

    Maybe there is something to it because I had exactly the same vision. I pictured Cynthia as the girlfriend and Booboo as the unborn baby (or a very small child anyway) and him as the dad who was expected to be released from jail. If he was traveling for business etc. he would be more likely to have some kind of luggage where he could keep his correspondence. It wouldn't take long for the note to get pretty nasty in a shoe. So maybe it was there because he was released with whatever he was arrested in.

    Then I had the disheartening thought if Cynthia would have reported him missing or just written him off as a deadbeat dad who went back to his old tricks again and good riddance.

    Hope his mom filed a missing persons report.

    Donjeta: We are on the same wavelength I see. I was thinking the same thing. Maybe Cynthia got mad when he never came home and assumed it was voluntary. With only a first name and a possibility that she had a baby in the 1990s how can we find Cynthia?

    I called Fox8 to see if they would consider doing a story on him. Maybe a relative or friend of Cynthia or Boo Boo will see it
