    I'll take this one.

    Right off the bat, this guy seems a little short and heavy.

    He also seems to be young to have any gray hair, and there's gray hair in the LE photograph? IIRC?

    Per Namus:

    He left his mother's apartment to go to the store and has not been seen since. His truck was recovered in a remote wooded area in Hardin County. The keys were missing, but his wallet and driver's license were found in the vehicle.

    Pinehurst, TX, in Orange County

    Google:


    His name is William Christopher Stonecipher.

    This makes sense of his various aliases
    Christopher Stonecipher
    Chris Stonecipher
    William Joseph Stonecipher
    Stoney



    William, Christopher, and Joseph are very common names in the Stonecipher family tree. They show up in TN, some in midwest.

    From Tennessee and Missouri to Texas roots: the CEO of Boeing Corp, Harry C. (Christopher?) Stonecipher, who resigned in a BIG romantic scandal.

    Enough of this rabbit hole!

    Google:


    Intelius says William Chris Stonecipher, age 58 (presumably as of this date), from Orange TX is related to Rita Stonecipher.

    Intelius says there is a William Woford Stonecipher, also from Orange TX, age 79. Is this the father?

    One or more Rita Stoneciphers, age 77-78, from Texas are related to William S and Joseph S. This is presumably MP's family.

    Social Security lists this MP as dead in 1990. http://search.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/s...gss=seo&ghc=20

    Since there are family members/relatives, presumably a DNA link could be found if our UID is a Stonecipher.

    Since it looks as though there are parents, maybe more information can be found about his disappearance?

    The entries say foul play is suspected, but I'm thinking this could have been a suicide... Hard to know without more backstory.

    I have no way to verify why foul play would be suspected.

    If Stonecipher were the guy, family might have known if there were teeth missing at a date substantially before our UID was found (which is a prerequisite we're working on?)...

    I think the Stoneciphers were at least a middle class family, so it seems unlikely that teeth were in poor shape.

    Mocavo has birth lists for Orange County, TX. A William Christopher Stonecipher was born in 1957. I'm guessing this is the MP.

    http://www.mocavo.com/William-Christ...93543816234768

    William Christopher Stonecipher (current age 58) has one current criminal event listed, per https://www.criminaldatabase.org/wil...onecipher.html This may be BS or earlier than disappearance, but I have no way to verify.

    The earlobes of Stonecipher stick out a lot. His upper lip protrudes quite a bit over his lower jaw (like he blows the trumpet or something); this may be bad teeth? Bad orthodontia?

    The photo of Stonecipher in LE TX records was updated in 2001, 11 years after his disappearance in 1990. http://www.txdps.state.tx.us/mpch/mp...ssing%20Person

    It still seems astonishing to me that a family, apparently with so many similarly-named relatives, wouldn't have more photos of this guy. Family holidays? Guy friends? Girl friends? Odd.....

    No yearbook or high school information located. No job history located.

    Interesting that Prepaid Legal (of Jodi Arias trial fame) Founder was part of this family: Harland Stonecipher , MO.

    Thoughts: William Christopher Stonecipher seems really unlikely for the identity of "our" UID. There's too much that doesn't seem to fit including his weight and height, being too young to have grey hair, and the find of his car in the woods, which suggests he was no longer with the living at the time of his disappearance. If foul play is suspected, I'm guessing LE has more info on the circumstances of his disappearance. If not, this kinda shrieks suicide...
