    If you have time, can folks here help with:

    1. Making a 1 page poster with a condensed version of what we are looking for currently with respect to Jay/Jason and Grateful Doe. I can do this later, but, if anyone else has the time now?

    2. Compiling a list of all middle schools and high schools in Myrtle Beach. We need a name and contact email for a best source, to send 1 email, to request that they print and post our poster, show teachers and possibly go through some yearbooks for the school during the pertinent time period in question. This information needs to be short and sweet, and we need a confirmation from each school if possible, so we aren't duplicating efforts. We need to target the Principals or Guidance Departments, even the Librarians, as they would have the best link to historical information for the school, and any alumni associations for the years in question.

    3. We need to compile a list of media local to the Myrtle Beach, Champlain, Vermont, Albany NY areas to contact in the same manner as 2, so, that we can get some traditional news media coverage on this story. We need to be precise with the info, keep speculation out of it, and really just present what we "know" now, which is mostly the visual similarities of Doe to Jay/Jason.

    Please help if you are able, and update here.


    via Classmates, I looked through MB, NMB, Socastee, and Aynor/Galivant Ferry yearbooks (at least ones that are available) - no 'definite' hits, but the years available are limited. The Aynor has a very interesting pic, a guy that looked a lot like him and his name was Jay (Thom), but it would've made Jason ~ 30 at the time (keep in mind, I think Jason WAS older than the 17-18 he may have told the IL guys - just not to look too out of place). I do think Jason was from the more rural areas of MB and not MB proper. Any Horry county schools is a good place to start, probably starting at 9th and 10th grade years. Still looking..........

    How very exciting!
    I've been intrigued by this case since I first joined Websleuths. The physical resemblance, the earring, the clothing, the lifestyle- it all points to a positive match! Fantastic work sleuthers!!

    The '94 year book I bought was shipped today. I paid for first class, rather than media, mail - but sometimes sellers ignore that and pocket the difference.

    Respectfully, what is the harm in attempting? We can't possibly know that no one would remember him. What if someone does?

    For the schools: Target the guidance counselors and the school librarians. Include a line saying that if they have any friends who have since retired from teaching, please show the photos and info to the retirees as well. Remember to include parochial schools as well as public (Catholic, Jewish, independent Christian )schools. Most school districts have a website and many schools have their own web page that lists the staff members by departments/grades/subject.

    http://www.horrycountyschools.net/pa...County_Schools main site
    Link to list of public schools: http://www.horrycountyschools.net/pa...ls/Our_Schools

    It looks like MB is in the diocese of Charleston for Catholic schools.

    Are there any "New Age" y type alternative bookstores in MB? since J. liked to talk to trees.

    High school reunion committees, like for 20 years or 25 years class reunion type events might be worth exploring.

    How about surfboard/surf gear type of shops in MB?

    I understand it's a long shot, but no more of a long shot than trying to reach out to attendees of the show where he had the stubs from, even tho we don't know if he actually saw the show. Or trying to track down mysterious Caroline's or Corinnes with no last names, trying to complete the phone number possibilities from the note, or browsing many random yearbooks looking for someone who may or may not be named Jason, with only an approximate age.

    Who knew that a random reddit post would garner the most solid leads we have to go on?

    It only takes one person to remember him. Whether there were 100 people at the show or 100,000. JMO.

    Amazing work GreyMetal!
    I've been on here for several years now, and boom, out of the blue, a possible match!
    This sure appears to be the right boy, way to go.

    I was also thinking a lot of high schools have FB pages one could post his pic too, may get a quick response?

    Hello all fellow WSers, cheers in all the work on this case.

    This is from Greymetal's Reddit: Just a quick one from my lunch break.
    Woke up this morning to find I had been contacted by a media outlet.
    I don't have too many details just yet. I'm not even sure if it will all follow through!
    But I needed you guys to know; this is how far we have got the story of The Grateful Doe!
    Let's keep going! :-)

    This is so exciting! Even his height, in comparison to his friend, seems to be on the shorter side...and the pale, freckly skin, the wavy hair, and the pierced ear. Do we know when the photo was taken? His hair could have easily grown to shoulder length in a matter of months. Also, the t-shirt appears to be his style. Out of curiosity, I contacted Liquid Blue (official GD apparel manufacturer) and asked when that design (space your face) first appeared-just to be sure (although I'm confident it was originally much earlier than '95.) Just trying to make sure the photo could not have been taken later than '95. The other man's shirt is hard to make out...but that might help narrow it even further, if we can identify that...

    That's an excellent idea!
