    CA - Sacramento, Wht/HispMale UP2410, 18-25, in Southside Park, Jan'80

    I thought I would start a thread on this young guy as I came across an article on the case which has a sketch that neither NAMUS or Doe Network has and some more in-depth details that either of those sites have which someone might be able to link to something, for example they have narrowed it down to a man in his 20s and included initials which might be of interest.

    Some extra info from this article published today - http://www.modbee.com/2012/02/26/208...e-for-new.html

    Sketches -




    Some more detailed info from today's article -

    He was in his 20s, 5 feet 9 inches tall and believed to be white or Hispanic. He weighed 147 pounds at the time of his death; however, stretch marks led police to believe he had lost a "significant" amount of weight.

    He had brown hair, brown eyes and a moustache and goatee. He wore a blue denim cap with a short bill; a "LeChevron Collection" jacket; a long-sleeved, navy blue "Sigallo" sweater with a gray collar; prescription eyeglasses; blue jeans; and royal blue Adidas tennis shoes with yellow stripes, size 9.

    Inside the shoes, the letters "HS" are scrawled in ink, though police are not sure whether those are the man's initials.

    An autopsy revealed his appendix had been removed. He had a partial denture plate on his front upper incisors, and his upper four front teeth were false. A pack of Salem cigarettes and a lighter found next to his body suggested he was a smoker.

    Also found next to him was a Burger King cup that detectives traced to a fast-food joint inside the old Greyhound bus station, then at 7th and L streets. Employees remembered selling the man the drink about 8 p.m. the night of his death.

    The MP and UID have very different noses but otherwise, Donald Cary Ewalt, missing from El Centro, CA since October 4, 1979 has similar physical statistics. There's nothing mentioned about him having lost weight prior to disappearing, though.

    Donald Cary Ewalt has a page in the missing persons section of Websleuths -- http://www.websleuths.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=138148

    I think his DNA is on file because, according to the Riverside County Sheriff's Office, because there is an UID in their county that they would like to exhume to collect his DNA and compare it with Mr. Ewalt's DNA when they have funding available.

    It is my understanding that Donald Cary Ewalt's fingerprints and dental information is not available.

    Other than the differences in the nose (I don't mean to be graphic, but because the man found in Sacramento's cause of death was, according to the article, a bullet wound to the head, could that have distorted his nose?), there is another reason it may not be Mr. Ewalt is his eyes are hazel (they appear to be more blue-green on the photos), I'm not sure if they could be mistaken for brown. El Centro, where Mr. Ewalt went missing, is almost 600 miles from Sacramento, where the UID was found, but I guess he could have gotten there by bus earlier since (from the article) he bought the drink he was found with at the Burger King at the bus station.

    Speaking of the bus station, I reread the Modesto Bee article and noticed it said this about it --
    Police believe he might have recently arrived by bus from the Los Angeles area, as one witness indicated, and police now are hoping someone from that region might remember him.

    I was looking through missing persons listings and noticed Anthony Mario Bryant, but unless the date of his disappearance is incorrect, he is out of the question.

    He really looks like this UID and he disappeared from Sacramento, but 9 months after the UID was found.
