    Ref. Eder. He does indeed. Very much so. But LE is likely to have much more information on this guy already than anything I can find on the internet.

    It would be great if we WSers made a match with America's most Wanted, but we've been so NICE to this guy....

    This is what Carl Eder's grandmother said about the creep: “The only thing I wish is they hadn’t found him alive,” she said. http://truecrimediary.com/index.cfm?page=cases&id=194

    After all these years, she might have her wish....

    I'm still putting out there that the hands and feet were cut off because they had identifiers on them (rings? custom boots?), rigor set in, and the only way to remove them was to chop them off.

    I find myself wondering if our UID was disemboweled....

    My head is spinning. I've been looking into a few cases at a very superficial level and, well, I am overwhelmed. Every time I start focusing on a case it takes me in other directions.

    RickshawFan, you are a focused machine!

    I want to put my hand up on one of these cases, but I know that I will be incredibly busy until after Christmas. Currently I am looking into Rodney Sloat, but I am not sure that I can do this case justice this week.

    Should I keep looking?

    At this point we don't need detailed investigation. We need to check to see whether there have been any changes for the people we already know about, especially changes in identifiers. I just posted the list of things that are being worked on. If a missing person's name isn't on the list, it means nobody has checked him yet.

    And for people who are new to the UID world: "identifiers" refers to the things you can use to compare the missing person and the unidentified remains. So right now, dentals, DNA, and fingerprints. This UID was skeletal so no fingerprints. In the future there may be other methods such as isotope signatures, retinal scans (also no good with skeletal remains), etc.

    Yes, please do keep on working on him. Are

    Yes, please do keep working on Rodney Sloat. And if you wanted to pick up some of the other Canadian possibles after him, that would be great.

    First off, amazing work here sleuthers! I hope it is ok that I've been jumping in and adding a few comments on some of the cases. I won't really have much time to work on anything for the next few weeks.

    I'll finish up on Timothy Guy later today.
    Please be aware that what I type is my opinion.

    Feedback on the cases and other posts is an extremely valuable function. It's easy to get so deep into a particular person or theory that I lose perspective, and a more detached view can get me back on track. Thank you for being here

    Krostewitz, Mark DONE

    He seems to be a bit too young (10 years younger) than suggested limit age of Sand Canyon JD. He might have disappeared in London, UK. Found a message from sister-in-law searching for him with his brother.
