    Have just edited this post, as I had originally posted John Ashley as a match....

    John was from Wilmington, would fit the age range and also had a right hip congenital defect. The UID would have walked with a pronounced limp on the right side according to the Doe Network information, however he has been ruled out on NAMUS.

    I thought the similarities were striking but apparently not....

    My bad, but a thread on this case being started might yet help

    Thanks for starting the thread. Your candidate was very good -- I'm surprised he's a ruleout.

    Wow. The reconstruction even looks like him. There couldn't be an error, could there?

    According to Namus "Mitrochondrial DNA testing of three siblings and the mother of John Ashley has excluded him from from any biological connection....."

    I wonder what the 'severe pelvic deformity' was?
    Six-year-old Shannon Sherrill disappeared from her front yard in Thorntown, Indiana in October, 1986. Someone knows where she is......

    Severe pelvic deformity plus several fractures on the right side makes me think he had been in an accident -- hit by a car, maybe.
