    MA - Boston, WhtMale 1068UMMA, 35-45, full-sleeve & multiple tats, Jun'06

    I did not see a thread for this heavily tattooed white male UID, other than in EmmaLucias "Can You Identify these UID Tattoos?" page on WS.

    He is not in NAMUS at all, but is listed on Doenetwork. http://www.doenetwork.org/cases/1068umma.html
    Link contains pictures of many of the tats.

    Found June 2, 2006 in Boston MA on Causeway Street, across from Banknorth Garden.
    Possibly homeless. May have been living in the general area of where he was found.
    Height 69 inches, "medium build" specific weight not listed
    Estimated Age 35-45 Years.
    Eye/Hair color not listed
    Appeared to be missing his left front tooth

    Very heavily tattooed (BBM) Just a few of his tattoos:
    Right arm heavily tattooed from wrist to shoulder
    Two separate green dragon tattoos: Dragon 1 is on left side of back and Dragon 2 center of lower back
    Jester or joker type tat in middle of abdomen. "Terminator" across abdomen as well.
    Asian letters running lengthwise along spine
    Inside of right leg, below calf but above ankle, is what appears to be a yin-yang symbol
    Woman's face on back and left shoulder

    Some of his other tats are described at the Doenetwork link above.
    Where is Shawn Hale? https://www.findthemissing.org/en/cases/7546/0/ Missing from Apple Valley CA since 11/04/1994

    Where is Michelle Crawford? https://www.findthemissing.org/en/cases/14428/0/ Missing from Lawton, OK since 06/08/1999

    I wonder how much effort LE put into identifying him. Boston's not that big and there seems to be a pretty close knit group of homeless people over in that area. You'd think with those tats they could have at least gotten a street name for him or something. Would also help to know how he died.

    Nothing new here, but BPD did try to ID him and said that it was not a homicide:

    Also, not that I necessarily think he was a vet, but there are some veterans' resources and resources/clinics for homeless people and people with addictions on Causeway and that general area.

    I thought he had a thread here but I don't see it any more...hm.

    There's an article at Porchlight: http://z10.invisionfree.com/usedtobe...howtopic=17140

    There were several articles in the press at the time -- I remember them because I thought at first he was a guy I used to know who had a very similar dragon tattoo.

    I'll try to play with the photos a bit to see if I can get a clearer image of the tats. That Boston Viking is intriguing.

    In FiveFeline's link above, it is stated his height was 5 ft. 9 inches.

    Yeah, all the articles seem to agree on that. Do you think it's significant?

    The Doenetwork did not mention height at all. The 5 ft 9 inches will help with possible matches. Families of an MP male who was that height may take a close look at the rest of the description of "Green Dragons Tattoo Man".

    His height is listed as 5'9" in the Doe Network article you linked above. I really wish there was a photo or at least sketch of his face.

    For some reason, MA LE doesn't seem to be into sketches or reconstructions or anything like that. And only a tiny fraction of the MA missing and unidentified are in the national databases -- or any public database, for that matter.
