    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    "When from a long distant past nothing persists, after the people are dead, after things are broken and scattered, still alone, more persistent, more faithful, the smell and taste of things remain poised a long, long time like souls, ready to remind us, waiting, hoping for their moment amid the ruins of all the rest, and bear unfaltering in the tiny and almost impalpable drop of their essence the vast structure of recollection."

    Oswalt is described as a white male, about six feet tall with hazel eyes and bald head. No clothing description was known. He previously listed a home address in Cantonment.

    John Douglas Oswalt was last seen May 3 in Flomaton, Alabama.

    Two days later, a car belonging to Oswalt was found in McDavid, Florida which is about 12 miles away.

    Oswalt is originally from the Memphis area, graduated from CBU and was a Memphis Police officer.

    Friends and family say there is no reason to suspect Oswalt left on his own.

    A former Memphis Police Department officer ... the search began after Oswalt's fiancee reported him missing. Surveillance footage showed his car at a car wash before it was found a few days later 12 miles away in Florida.

    So. In the "car wash", was he videotaped washing his car, or is it one of those drive in things where you really can't possibly see who is inside the car?

    I don't think he was living in the Memphis area anymore.

    According to the Facebook page and a message from his mom, John's body was found in the woods (not sure which "woods") this morning. I can't find any other information confirming this at this time.

    Human Remains Found Near McDavid During Search For Missing Flomaton Man
    May 29, 2015
    http://www.northescambia.com/2015/05...g-flomaton-man
    The remains were found during a multiple-agency search near where the vehicle of 35-year old John Douglas Oswalt of Flomaton was found back on May 5. Oswalt had last communicated with family members on May 3.

    The remains were found about 500 feet off Pine Barren Road, about a half mile from where Oswalt’s vehicle was discovered.

    The exact identification of the remains must be determined through DNA and dental records and may take some time. Authorities have declined to say the remains are those of Oswalt pending the outcome of that further investigation.
