    Having followed this case for years, my theory is that he was the child of older parents who may not be living now. The parents may not have been internet savvy & simply wrote off their son as being a runaway. I do believe that a family member (possibly a sibling) placed that call to the authorities & for whatever reason, Jason's family has opted to allow him to rest in peace. We may never know who he was...which amazes me when you think of all the classmates and coworkers he would have had in his young life.

    I agree Snarky. And I think that this case may be solved if it was given air time. It deserves it...HE deserves it. Why hasn't this been on the news much? This is a case that could be solved by someone simply seeing his photo. So sad. I have contacted so many news stations-- they no interest whatsoever.

    Snarky, you just made me think of another reason why someone wouldn't claim the body of a loved one - greed.

    Callmetres, do you mean greed as in not wanting to pay for funeral? Because yes that is so common...there are so many unclaimed bodies w known identifies.

    I recently have been wondering if some sort of religious practice kept them from claiming the body-like the person had to be buried within 24 hours of death or something like that....or there are some religions that do not bury, they hold a memorial service instead of a funeral.
    Where is Shawn Hale? https://www.findthemissing.org/en/cases/7546/0/ Missing from Apple Valley CA since 11/04/1994

    Where is Michelle Crawford? https://www.findthemissing.org/en/cases/14428/0/ Missing from Lawton, OK since 06/08/1999

    Where is Jennifer Lee Schmidt? https://www.findthemissing.org/en/cases/4822/0/ (Missing From West Lafayette IN(Purdue University) since 08/06/85.

    while the discussions of whether his family didn't claim his body are worthwhile, it doesn't change the fact that many many people had to know this kid (classmates, coworkers, friends, townspeople, etc) and not one person has come forward to say they recognize him.

    to me this means one of two things - 1) the situation never made the news where he is from, 2) the reconstruction "photos" don't resemble what he really looked like.

    Masootz, I agree. They need a better drawing. And I'm sure he had peers. I think what this comes down to is that we need to push this case for the news. Maybe with multiple people trying it'll increase chances.

    Needtoid - I was thinking about inheritances and Social Security benefits. When I was growing up, one of my friends' dad died. Her mom got benefits from Social Security until my friend turned 18.

    Callmetres, wow! Yes I've heard on the news of people doing this. That could be the case!

    Callmetres, this site shows a couple of those cases. And then I stumbled on the last story which is very disturbing. http://listverse.com/2013/09/02/10-p...ing-for-years/

    My $.02 - at the moment......

    I've been thinking that he may have been reported missing many months after Jerry died because of the dead head culture. If this was a different band it would have been more immediately alarming to family & police that the person did not return. I'm also thinking he is out of high school because it would seem to me there would be more of an effort for a missing high school student.

    I also wonder about the Sunday ticket that did not appear to be used. Why not? Maybe he spent time in the parking lot, maybe there was some police contact, spent time in the ER with another fan......why go and not go in the second day?

    Anyway, he seems like he came from somewhere and was going back to somewhere given all the info we have. If he was reported it may never have been pushed real hard because he was over 18 so ......he could be a name on a small little state or county list somewhere. The reconstruction is probably off but there is enough info without it IMHO.

    i think his pack was stolen/lost and that's why he had a new t-shirt on and no belongings.
    maybe he was catching rides here and there, not really traveling with 'family'. it's possible that his crew left him with his pack in the car.
    maybe he was helping someone hustle and sell the T-shirts and that's why he had a brand new one, possibly in payment for a days worth or work.
    you could always find 'work' on grateful dead lot, have it be legal or not.

    was there really an used ticket for the next show? if he was short on $$$ he could have sold that unused ticket for cash on lot- a day, a week, an hour before the showtime.

    there were some unsavory characters on dead lot- it wasnt all rainbows and glitter.

    Apearn I agree too with all you said. And there's also a chance he could have been a hs drop out too , 16-18 yrs old, or maybe a person whose parents withdrew him from one school to go to another but somehow slipped through the cracks. If he dropped out, maybe that's why the schools didn't search too hard.

    I am assuming you meant 'unused'. Here is a link with a pic of the tickets.

    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/0...n_5208512.html

    They came from the same 'ticket seller' so I would assume he paid at or close to face value. For some reason it bugs me that the Sunday ticket appears unused and he has 4 quarters. I have random change in my pockets but rarely is it only 4 quarters. Especially since we can assume he started out with somewhere around $85.00 for tickets and the shirt. It's almost like someone said "here are some quarters so you can make phone calls and get home".

    And there's also a chance he could have been a hs drop out too
    Good point.

    where is his backpack? his belongings?
    when you travel solo, you pack is your everything.
    unless it was thrown in a dumpster at RFK somebody had his bag.
    i was at this show- it was a weird vibe. hot, we were on lot until 5 in the morning b/c of car trouble, not a great area.
