    Are there any more newspaper articles on him or the body found?

    'Detective' will exhume bodies in victim identity hunt



    The oldest known unidentified victim, found in 1957, may have been named Nolan Pruitt - but it remains unconfirmed decades later.

    He wore an oversized cowboy belt buckle, had false teeth, and appeared to be under 40.

    The identity as Nolan Pruitt was initial. As of today he is unidentified.

    Possibly they got a match with Nolan Pruitt with another UID?

    Could this UID be Clarence Theodore Moore a soldier who is rumored to have gone AWOL. I know a lot of ex-military who still like to wear khaki. Mr Moore was 5'8" and 160 lbs and had dark brown hair.
