AL - Gadsden, BlkMale Skeletal UP2758, 17-21, in Coosa River, May'98
Had a look but couldnt find any posts on this John Doe, never made a topic before so hope this is allowed.
On May 29, 1998, the skeletonized remains of a black male were found by fishermen in the Coosa River in Gadsden, Etowah County, Alabama. There were multiple bullet wounds to the skull, and stab wounds to the sacrum and right hipbone.
Evidence of burning was also present. He was aged between 17 and 21 at the time of death, and had been 5 feet 6 to 5 feet 8 inches tall. Although a forensic reconstruction of the skull was performed to aid identification, the jawline is only an approximation as the mandible was never found.
The remaining maxillary teeth showed no evidence of fillings, possibly indicating a lack of dental care when alive. Some of the teeth had been fractured before death, possibly by using them to open a bottle.
One or both hands and one or more limbs were not recovered.

I am wondering if this could be Kawan Pryor missing from Norfolk VA in 1997. He's thought to have left the area but no listing on where he may have gone. I think his aged progressed picture reminds me of the UID.
He's 15 vs 17
5'5 vs 5'6 - 5'8
UID estimated time of death several months to a year
What do you all think?
Can someone do a side by side?

The skeletal remains of a young black male were discovered by men fishing in the Coosa River on May 29, 1998, according to Toni Driskill with the Gadsden Police Crime Scene Unit. Authorities found multiple bullet wounds to the head and stab wounds to the base of his spine and right hip.
His age is estimated between 17 and 21 and he was about 5 feet, 8 inches tall. Scientists created a facial reconstruction but had to approximate his jaw because the mandible was never found. Other limbs were also missing.
