    He was buried without sampling DNA. Unfortunate.


    Someone in local churches might remember him.

    Can't suggest anything but would say that the PM image is edited to be something of a recreation. I also think he looks a little younger than the 40 estimate (though 40 is not at all hard to believe - but anyone from about (a hard) age 32 up could be considered, and a match would be less likely at the upper end of the range).

    Ok, I would appreciate your opinion on this guy:

    Missing since 1999 from Palmyra Missouri, and the unidentified was found 2002in Detroit, MI
    Janes Yarbrough was 72"; unidentified is 69"
    Both have brown eyes.

    Well this is too bad, James has brown hair, and the unidentified is listed as having blonde/strawberry greying at temples. I thought it was brown in the photo. Sorry!

    James's height is 72 inches in Nampn (6'0"); and he is listed as 60-62 inches in Namus. That is quite a discrepancy.

    Someone has entered 6'0" as 60"... happens all the time unfortunately.

    If he were 5'0" and 185 lbs he'd be a lot rounder.

    I noticed today that the Namus site was updated and the UID hair color was changed from blonde to black.

    Ruleouts for this UID:

    James Bradford 1942 Arizona
    Richard Dyer 1953 Virginia
    Gordon Machek 1945 Michigan

    Also, the NamUs profile has a postmortem. Are there any reconstructions based off of this?

    His hair color has also been changed to brown. (Not blonde or black)
