    I was doing a quick search (on WS only) of missing persons cases around the Herndon, Virginia, area and was surprised by the number of cases listed. Also mixed in is a lot of speculation how some of these cases perhaps could be related to Jessie Lee Matthews, alleged killer of Hannah Graham. One case, a male, goes back to 1991.

    I wonder how long identification will take? All those families waiting and wondering. What suffering.

    Unless I provide a link or refer to a specific link, all my ramblings are theories, speculation, scenarios based on what info is available and my own unique life experiences.

    were these bodies together? or will they be just two bodies found separate? we should make a second thread if they are separate.

    A teenaged boy only known as Sachin went missing from Alexandria in December 2013. Alexandria is only 7 1/2 miles from Mt. Vernon.

    Since the body is thought to be a male, I don't think the body has been there that long. A body from 2013 would be skeletonize. The body was described as being in "advanced state of decomposition"
    To bad LE didn't give some indication as to how long they thought the body had been there.

    A spokesperson with the Fairfax County Police Department initially said the remains were so badly decayed that a gender could not be determined, but police now say they believe the remains are male.

    Perhaps a suicide?

    That's the kind of language they use when they think someone is a suicide. And it's the kind of location a lot of people choose when they want to end their lives. So it could be.
    Opinions expressed are strictly my own (who else would they belong to???)
