    The decedent carried a handmade ID with the name of James Summers.
    A fingerprint matched a person by the name of Thomas Stone, which possibly could be an alias.

    Interestingly, when I searched both names together I got a James Summers, class of 1974 from: Thomas Stone HS....obviously the graduating year would put him at around 56yr old? Im sure just a coincidence, but ironic.

    If his fingerprint matched a "Thomas Stone" - there must be more information attached to that. Assuming this fingerprint came from an arrest - or a driver license application, etc., - there must be more identifying information than just simply a name. This seems totally solvable to me -

    I wonder whether that might not be coincidence. People choosing aliases often pick a name that has some connection to them, so they won't forget it. Certainly coincidence is more likely, but I have to wonder whether there isn't more of a connection. Possibly our UID used the name of a friend and of the high school?

    Was this person you found listed as still living?

    Deca, I think you're right.

    Look at Christopher Aument's mugshot from 2002. Looks VERY much like the deceased photo, except a lot of weight loss.

    http://florida.arrests.org/Arrests/C...ument_4285452/

    https://identifyus.org/en/cases/10560 (click on images on this page, and look at the full face image. Looks just like him.)


    I think you should call this one in - seems VERY possible.

    I don't think so. The John Doe's nose is much different. The tip of his nose is positioned well below his nostrils. Aument's nose is broader at the bridge, and the tip is positioned above the base of the nostrils.

    Carl, he looks like he's had a broken nose, to me.

    This is DECAs call - but if she/he decides not to report the possible match, I will.

    Thomas Stone (1743 October 5, 1787) was an American planter who signed the United States Declaration of Independence as a delegate for Maryland.

    So a good choice of name to grab as a pseudonym.

    Though I doubt if he's the only Thomas Stone. Seems like a common enough name to go unchallenged.

    Regarding Aument, the angle of the pictures is a little different so I think the nose would look a little different because of that but it looks to me like the widest point of the UID's face is at the temples and Aument's is the widest at the angle of the jaws.

    What do you make of the handmade ID? What use is a handmade ID? You can't prove your identity with a document that looks like you did it yourself. Is this just a fancy way of saying he had a fake ID?

    Agreed. Believe me, I spent an hour or more and there are a TON of Tom Stones and Thomas Stones out there: people, businesses, etc.

    You (or anyone else) are welcome to report this one.

    In Aument's mugshot he seems to be tilting his head up. That and the weight difference make it really hard for me to judge.
    The things that struck me were more of the back scars, general area his was found and general description---and the fact that it was the closest match I could find in about 10 different databases. Still, as we know with any homeless or "home insecure" it is unlikely the UID was reported missing.
