    This one is way off in age, and the eye color is off, but there is a physical resemblance, especially of the second image offered.

    I think the teeth are way off.

    I don't really see it, sorry. I know that this unidentified man was found in Oregon, but he has a look that a lot of New York men (and some Los Angeles men have). I can't exactly put my finger on it. David Cunningham doesn't have it.

    I agree -- he looks exactly like a member of my Irish-Italian New York family. Except for the being exceptionally tall.

    If he doesn't have some Italian or Hispanic in his background, I would guess a little Native American... which makes sense in the Northwest.

    This man is so distinctive -- hard to believe he hasn't been identified.

    He does have perfect teeth, doesn't he? It looks like the John Doe has a broken front tooth. They didn't have dental records posted to let us know if it was broken post or ante mortem. I guess I was looking at the forehead, brow line, shape of the nose and the unevenness of the cheek bones.

    I agree that the broken tooth shown could have happened during a fight just prior to being thrown in the river, if he met with foul play, for example.

    There is huge gap in time and the circumstances are off, but I really think that he could be David Reuben Boniske. They are both very tall (David is 6'5") and have brown hair and hazel eyes. Plus, although [I would assume] he is from Washington state, David really has that "New York look" that the UID has; the UID is just a bit older, heavier, and balding.

    In addition to the broken front tooth, the dental records on this UID reflect a lot of work--2 crowns or caps and 10 fillings. They also note possible previous orthodontic treatment.

    I heard back from Janet Franson, David Boniske has been ruled out as being this UID. He was sort of a long-shot because of the amount of time between when David went missing and when the UID was found.

    Prior to him being ruled out, Janet Franson asked me if the missing person had Marfan syndrome (I have no idea if he did). I wonder if this means that the tall guy in the river did? It sounds like it to me.

    www.the-seeker.com would be much more useful if it were indexed in some meaningful manner.

    in any event, Larry Shane Kelley has the wrong hair and eye colors to be this UID.
