    Fast forward to July 2003, exactly 6 years later. You have Jessica Taylor, who in all likelihood disappeared from Brooklyn dismembered out in Manorville found on July 6 and the male who was dumped around the same time but not discovered until November. Now just a month before Jessica was found, there was another Asian man found dismembered in a suitcase in Chinatown. He was identified as Yan Jun Zhang. http://www.nydailynews.com/archives/...ticle-1.523905
    I think we need a new chart.

    Breaks my heart that there ARE so many potential matches😞
    Clearly there are too many missing & unaccounted for in this world.
    So sad.

    To my eye, the stripes appear to be white. But with the flashback it really is difficult to distinguish if it is two white stripes or just gold.

    I am thinking it may be on the lines of a team, school or country symbol something along that idea.

    It did look white but I believe it was from the glare of the flash. It is most likely gold. I tried to take the glare off.

    I agree. Typical western stars seem to have a different shape -more pointy than these communist stars. I did find a North Korean MP.
    Nam Kwan Kang, missing from Newfoundland, Canada since November 1, 1996. http://www.doenetwork.org/cases/2304dmnf.html

    He was a student in Toronto at the time and a former member of the North Korean armed forces. No identifiers so I'm not sure anything could be done if I were to submit him. As a martial arts expert I don't think he would fit the vulnerable profile but I thought it was worth posting that there is a North Korean MP who fits the timeline.

    .
    Found a similar one~~not exact this one by a company in China. Appears to be some kind of memory locket or metal floating charm.

    I'm thinking this young man, possibly pre-op transgendered female, might not have been reported missing, if his parents kicked him out of the house for being gay or trans.
    He could have been homeless and prostituting for awhile before he was murdered.
    LE needs to look at service providers or homeless shelters for LGBT teens in NYC in the early 2000s to see if they remember an Asian client possibly presenting as female and/or prostituting himself.
    They should also be interviewing people who worked in gay bars and clubs from that time or late 90s that young people would have frequented to see if they remember any young gay Asian men presenting as female that were known to prostitute or as rent boys.
    Another angle is to look at the juvenile and adult criminal case records for prostitution arrests around that time of young Asian men. I would think that young Asian men presenting as female and prostituting themselves in the NYC area during that time would significantly narrow the pool of possibilities.
    Some people do crossword puzzles or Soduko in their spare time...I look at skeletal reconstructions and work on UID puzzles. I swear I'm not this morbid in person!

    Help Fred Murray find his daughter and bring her home. He should not be walking those woods alone!

    I would also like to add that, needless to say, given the intersection of factors - a young man presenting as female and prostituting himself pre-social media in the late 90s/early 2000s NY - I don't think you are going to find the Asian male was ever reported missing.

    Pic 2 is a Russian Soviet red star. Hmm.
    The Red Star is also used by the Chinese Communist Party as well for symbolism. Imprisoned heart could mean the wearer believes the Communist Party has imprisoned his heart for not letting him love who he wants to love.

    I would say this victim is Chinese, not even Chinese American.

    Anyone think Asian Male could possibly be William / Jael Hilderbrand?
    http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/...d_william.html
    22-year-old, 5'10" Native American trans woman missing from Maine since 11/4/10 (know that they thought Asian Male died around 2006 but maybe the body decomposed faster than usual?)
    Kind of a stretch but it's possible that she could have survived the jump and found her way down to New York...
