    GA - Woodstock, BlkMale Skeletal, 27-53, red Adidas shoes, Jul'13

    http://www.wsbtv.com/news/news/local...-county/nYyMD/

    WOODSTOCK, Ga.
    The Cherokee County Sheriff's Office said human skeletal remains have been found in Woodstock.

    Investigators told Channel 2 Action News a biologist searching for snakes found the remains around 6 p.m. Saturday off South Cherokee Lane.

    They said the remains appear to be that of a male. Investigators said the person was wearing size 13 red Adidas shoes and blue jeans with burgundy shorts underneath.

    Investigators are unclear how long the body had been in there.

    The remains are being sent to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation's Crime Lab for analysis.

    Investigators ask anyone that might know something about the remains to please call 911.

    Found this man under the Missing 2000's thread, could this be the UID?

    Stephen M. Lankester-Cox, 38, Acworth, GA, missing since November 18, 2004

    Foul play is suspected. I could not find a clothing description for him, nor shoe size. He was 6'1, 170 pounds, so it is possible he could wear a large shoes size since he was a fairly tall man. It appears his mother had been actively looking for him for years.

    According to Google maps, Acworth and Woodstock are about 12 miles from each other.

    GA GA - Stephen M. Lankester-Cox, 38, Acworth, 18 Nov 2004 - Websleuths Crime Sleuthing Community

    ETA: I found more information. According to Charley Project, Stephen was wearing blue jeans, though one of his Harley Davidson boots was found near his home. I thought he was a good match for the UID, but the boot finding makes it less likely.

    I'm in metro Atlanta, so this location is within 45 minutes of me. I wish we knew what kind of red Adidas. The shoe could tell us a lot - are they red high-top Adidas (most popular among African-American young men), running shoe-type (this would open up the demographic a bit) or the skateboarding type Adidas (would suggest a younger man, 16-25 most likely).

    A red shoe leads me to believe this is a younger man, I'd guess under 30. You don't see a lot of guys 40+ walking around in red Adidas, as a general rule.

    FYI, Woodstock (and the Northwestern suburbs of ATL, generally) is not as racially diverse as other parts of the city. Woodstock itself is 80% white, and it's pretty far up there - unlikely place for a body dump for someone from ATL. I'm guessing this guy is missing from somewhere nearby.

    Last Seen: April 28, 1992 at American Hotel across the street from bus station in Atlanta.
    The Atlanta Police Department, the Cobb County Sheriff's Office and the GBI are investigating the disappearance of Chistoph "Chris" Zahn, a 21 year old Swiss citizen, who was last heard from on April 28, 1992, while he was visiting Atlanta. Police suspect foul play was involved and need the public's help in obtaining information that might lead them to the location of his body.
    Zahn was 6' tall and weighed about 160 lbs. He had light brown hair, brown eyes and a fair complexion. He had a scar on his chin and was last seen wearing a turquoise cap and blue jeans. He spoke English with a slight German accent.
    On April 27, 1992, Zahn had taken an overnight bus from Jacksonville, Florida, to Atlanta and checked into a hotel across the street from the bus station.
    Zahn was last heard from at 4:15pm on April 28, 1992, when he placed a call to his travel agent in Orange County, Florida, from a telephone at the Denny’s Restaurant on Mountain Industrial Boulevard in Tucker, Georgia.
    Between April 30 and May 11, Zahn's credit card was used 31 times in the Atlanta area, including Cobb & Carroll Counties. Arrested and convicted in connection with these fraudulent credit card transactions was Harry Eugene Hale, a 47 year old white male who lived & worked in the Austell area from May through October of 1992. Hale is 6'1", 185 lbs. with thin, graying brown hair and green eyes. Hale has homes in Kentucky and Florida. He was arrested in Miami, Florida on Carroll & Cobb County warrants on forgery related charges for using Zahn's credit cards.
    At the time of Zahn's disappearance, Hale drove a 1993 red Ford Probe with Ga. Tags. We are asking that anyone with any information on Chris Zahn, to call the GBI Tip Line. Also, anyone with any information on Harry Hale, particularly anyone who might have seen Hale and Zahn together, maybe in a red Ford Probe, please call the GBI Tip Line at 1-800-587-TIPS.

    Another article....

    It says skeletal so they could have been there awhile...

    http://woodstock.patch.com/groups/po...d-in-woodstock

    The skeletal remains of what appear to be a man were found in southern Cherokee County Saturday afternoon.
    The Cherokee Sheriff's Office said biologists searching for snakes in the area discovered the remains along South Cherokee Lane in Woodstock around 6 p.m. Saturday.
    The remains, said Sheriff's Office Spokesman Lt. Jay Baker, appear to be that of a "male who was wearing size 13 red Adidas tennis shoes."

    "Blue jeans with burgundy shorts underneath were also located with the remains," Baker said in a press release.

    Investigators have not determined how long the remains were in the woods, and investigators will send the remains to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation's crime lab for analysis.

    Respectfully snipped by me for space.

    I posted about him too, the locations are so close (according to google).

    The shoes throw it off though, apparently his boot was found. Since you know the family, is his Mom still alive? She was active online looking for him with a myspace page, but I couldn't find anything more recent. I would think she would be able to confirm his shoe size and/or if he owned red shoes.

    ETA: That was supposed to be a quote of georgiagirl's post. New to posting, sorry!

    I live in the Suwanee area, so Justin Gaines case is always on my mind when a body is found. Everything I can find indicates he was wearing flip flops at the time of his disappearance.

    I've read about the Cox case, and it sounds as if LE knows he is deceased and pretty much knows who is responsible, but there is no body. I agree he does not sound like the type to sport Adidas of any kind.

    The existence of the shoes, jeans and shorts suggests this body hasn't been there THAT long. I doubt those would survive in the GA elements for 20+ years...

    BBM

    Yes, his mom is still alive and still lives in the area. She is very active in her son's case. We have a Facebook group set up for him if you would like to join called Bring Home Stephen Lankester Cox. My heart breaks for this woman because the CCSD IMO doesn't seem too interested the case since Stephen was involved with drugs. He is still someone's son, brother and father.

    My other thought is that it could be a hispanic male who maybe hasn't been reported missing. There is a hispanic community in the Canton area which is just one town north of Woostock.

    astridxx - That's bad reporting but I believe by "in there" the reporter means the woods. Both the MSM and Patch article refer to the body being located in the woods.
