    why does it say skeletal remains, and then that he had died only approx. 10 days prior?

    Would a body decompose that quickly in 10 days? (I have no idea). Nova Scotia occasionally can have some hot days in October, but it is usually sweater weather in October. It certainly is NOT freezing...ever in October. There is no mention of eye color so I suspect/guess there was advance decomposition. Perhaps another member would know more about decomposition rates?

    Yes, a body can decompose in 10 days, especially if animals are involved.

    Looks pretty good. Height is right. Glasses are similar, facial shape is right.

    He's a little older than the age estimate. But I've seen errors in estimated age before. There is a 2 1/2 year lag in the timeline, but there's nothing in the circumstances to suggest foul play in Florida.

    When I googled his name, I found multiple mug shots online:

    (not all are of the same individual but several are).

    Hi fin & carlk, thanks! I was wondering if it was a typo. I know there are coyotes in Nova Scotia, there was a young woman killed by them a couple years ago.
    So this man was biracial, had an improperly set broken leg at some point in his past, and he never had orthodontic work. JMHO, wouldn't those points suggest the West Indies? Aren't some of those nations still part of the British Commonwealth, just like Canada?
    (i think citizens of the commonwealth nations can travel to other member nations relatively freely).
    What does everyone think?

    Canada doesn't have a revolving door policy for those from other countries that still pledge allegiance to the British monarchy. It wouldn't matter what country you come from, you pass through customs just the same way as everyone else, if that's what you are asking.

    Hi Dewey-
    Thats exactly what I was thinking. If he was from Jamaica or Barbados or the Bahamas, and he was in Canada for education or work and all his family are overseas, it would explain why he wasn't reported missing, or why no one has identified him. Thanks for clearing that up!

    Update: My suggested missing man (P.S.) has been ruled out by fingerprint comparison and is not this UID.

    I stumbled across this man's photo and I was drawn to his ear size. It reminded me of this UID from Halifax. It seems this man may have been last seen in 1998 or 1988 (article is conflicting) but he was only reported missing last month in December 2012. The height is right, plus the African connection, he has been known to wear dreadlocks and glasses. However, the age is an issue.

    What about Terrance Deon Williams as a match?

    http://http://charleyproject.org/cas..._terrance.html

    He fits timeline - disappeared earlier in year than when John Doe was found, appearance is similar (stats match fairly closely, mixed ancestry,same hairstyle and beard, Very similar clothing, ALSO seems to have slightly crooked nose mentioned in John Doe profile) Circumstances may also match - He might be lying low - perhaps he fled to Canada? It is not mentioned that the John Doe has gold caps but they may have been lost postmortem as teeth often are.
