    If you look through the images on this UID, there's a very clear tat of the name "Dennis" on the left forearm and the letters D and N on the left calf (for "Dennis Nathan," perhaps?). UP #6106 was 35 to 45 years old when he died in 1999 -- 20 years after 19-year-old Dennis Mann disappeared -- and he was 70" tall and 170 pounds with brown hair and a mustache. No facial image available, unfortunately.


    He's the right age, the right height, and has the right hair and the right name. Could this UID be Dennis Mann?

    According to this page, the Walmart in Winona, MS opened on 5/15/79.


    I am wondering what date the concrete was poured.

    Other information:
    Dennis Mann was not from Winona, MS. He was in town working on a construction job. It may have been Walmart, but not sure of that. He was from a northern state but I can't find that information. I want to say it was possibly Michigan, but not sure. Back in the 80's his parents names were listed in connection to the case available on the internet along with a phone number for them. I can't find any of that old information. I believe he was staying in a then apartment house, an old historic hotel turned apartment house, called the Wisteria Inn.

    At some point, it was printed in the Winona Times that anon calls were received by a female claiming she and a male witnessed someone throwing a body off a creek bridge near the time he disappeared. After searches the body was never found.

    Many years later a skull was discovered on someone's mantle and traced to having been removed from a creek. The skull was first sent to Jackson for carbon dating and an examiner indicated that it WAS Mann's skull. For some reason there was a discrepancy (maybe other cases by this particular examiner being found grossly wrong) and the skull was carbon dated a second time and found to be from an apparent Native American prior to white settlement, nor did the skull match Mann's injuries from a motorcycle accident.

    The connection between the pouring of the Walmart concrete and Mann's disappearance have long been an unprinted hypothesis because this is the one place that could never be searched and dates coincided closely. (How closely?)

    The case was briefly reopened by Sheriff Bubba Nix in 2009 but nothing known since.

    This is from my memory and not guaranteed flawless by any means, but if anyone can find the evidence to substantiate this information as fact that would be awesome so that the information is not LOST. In cases this old, I believe it's important that details are not lost just because time passes. (Thus my need to contribute these details as best as am able.)

    Articles may be available through the Winona Times.

    "Mann was last seen at a friend's home in Mississippi on January 26, 1979. Foul play is suspected."

    Also I am nearly certain that articles read he left the friend's house, walking "across a field" at night, heading back to his apartment.
