    TX - Wharton Co., AsianMale UP4183, 20-30, hit by car on U.S. 59, Apr'87

    This young Asian male was struck by a vehicle and killed on April 10,1987 on US 59 in Wharton County Texas . He is described as being 5'7" and weighing 173 pounds. Estimated to be 20-30 years old, he had black hair and brown eyes.

    He had fillings in his molars, but no other scars or tattoos. His clothes were described as a brown plaid western shirt from JC Penny, jeans and Trax shoes.

    I was having a look around, how about https://www.findthemissing.org/en/cases/17650/1 Raymond Kung?

    The only photo available isn't terribly good, and different angle, but the nose and ears look similar from what I can see. No DNA for either, but there is dental for both. According to http://doenetwork.org/cases/906dmca.html , the dentals for Kung are x-rays, which indicates to me that he had at least some kind of dental work in his life. Age also fit, Raymond Kung would have been 30 in 1987.

    Height matches very well:

    UID: 67", Kung 68"

    Raymond went missing in 1981 from home in San Francisco. NO information about him at all anywhere, so at least there is nothing to rule out that he had left home and was still alive in 1987.

    With the UID, the fact that he was walking as a pedestrian on a clearly non-pedestrian street makes me wonder if he was hitchhiking. He had nothing with him it seems, but he might have been hitching back from Wharton to wherever he was staying locally? I don't know.

    Ears, eyebrows and chin are similar. Nose is questionable due to post mortem changes. Here is the collage. Warning post mortem picture

    Looks plausible to me. With dentals, it should be a fairly quick rule in or out.
    Opinions expressed are strictly my own (who else would they belong to???)

    Does anyone else feel comfortable with sending this through? I'm in the UK so calling isn't easy, and I can never find email addresses.

    Glad they checked him.

    I always have mixed feelings when there's a new name on the ruleouts list. I'm disappointed this guy doesn't have his name back, but I'm glad there's still a chance Kung will be found alive and well somewhere.
