    LA - Belle Chasse, Male Skeletal UP13308, 35-50, in vacant house, Oct'14

    Full human skeleton discovered in an abandoned home in Belle Chasse, Plaquemines Parish, LA. This is very near the area where Belle Chasse John Doe was found in Feb 1975. Not suggesting the two are related. It's just interesting to note.

    Would think they would release whether clothing were found or not

    This is another one where I wonder about the height...
    Opinions expressed are strictly my own (who else would they belong to???)

    Wearing so much clothing makes me think they were homeless.
    Here's hoping a name will be matched with this soul.

    Judging by the clothing sizes, the height might be accurate. But that's an awful lot of clothes. That narrows down the time of his death to a few winter months. He might've frozen to death in the abandoned house. This past January and February were brutally cold.

    Thanks. Looks like he really is a very small man.

    I immediately thought the same thing, charminglane.

    What about Oscar Wilcher, who disappeared from Gulfport on Christmas 2013? He's 5'4", hispanic, and Gulfport to the abandoned house is about a hundred miles (map: https://goo.gl/maps/29HJE)

    https://www.findthemissing.org/en/cases/23719/3/ (main namus entry)
    https://www.findthemissing.org/en/photos/full/42833 (his missing poster)

    There's only one short article about him, in the Sun Herald, but it has aged out. Porchlight has this: http://z10.invisionfree.com/usedtobe...howtopic=76025

    Clothing is different, but since very little is known about his circumstances, he could have had other clothing with him.

    I thought he sounded like a good prospect, but his weight is 180-200 on Namus, and he looks husky in his photo. I think the JD was smaller according to clothing sizes.
