    KY - Bullitt Co., WhtMale UP14560, 18-22, burned, maybe Canadian, May'76

    A recent addition:
    https://identifyus.org/en/cases/14560

    "X-ray examination did show the subject had an old, healed fracture of the left “mandudiable” (perhaps mandible)." "Fracture of Madible - "Examination of the X-rays of mandible reveal an apparent old well healed fracture near ramus on left side."

    Gary Mullinax from Arkansas seems to be a good potential fit - he broke his jaw when young and went missing on the same day the body was found:
    "Jaw had been broken at one time and wired shut for weeks from a car wreck"

    A 500 mile drive is a bit of a stretch - the body was found at 16:30 on May 9th supposedly, so it would be difficult to leave Benton in Arkansas after a Mother's Day gathering and get to Shepherdsville KY in time for burning the body. The profile even says the remains were found 1 day after death and were "partly decomposed", and Mother's Day was definitely on May 9th in '76 after I searched. It's possible that Gary Mullinax went missing a day or two before Mother's day of course, people can misremember/mistranscribe. His original report was lost in the late 1970s apparently. The body may have been found later than recorded as well.

    The UID has fingerprints and dental available, Mullinax has DNA and fingerprints available. So a ruleout could be done on fingerprints, although the UID's fingerprints were hard to get apparently (the hands were rather burned), so it might not be conclusive.

    That the remains were found "1 day" postmortem is unlikely to be very exact - the remains were burned, they wouldn't have been able to tell with any exactitude.

    Add that to the significant facial resemblance, and I'd say it's worth submitting (the last seen/found times might be wrong).

    I submitted it using Doenetwork's match submission page, never tried that before so I thought I'd give it a go.

    There was another victim in Kentucky who was seemingly tortured with his hands removed maybe in the 80's?

    Looking through the chronological Doenetwork page maybe it was this one:
    http://www.doenetwork.org/cases/296umky.html

    I think that LE investigators severed the hands of the UID found in 1976 because of fingerprint issues:

    "The hands were so badly burned that processing by our lab was impossible at that time. The hands were severed from the body and forwarded to the Federal Bureau of Investigation Identification Unit for special processing."

    No, the one I was talking about was in 1990 but this guy you found was 89 so maybe those two were connected. It's just odd though, there have been 3 strange murders of men in Kentucky which isn't the most populous state. 76 is long before 89 and 90 though.

    I misspoke earlier, in fact I used the Geographical Index not the Chronological One:
    http://www.doenetwork.org/cases/uid-geo-index.html#KY

    Can't find any male UID from 1990 in KY in DoeNetwork. identifyUs has one:

    Date found January 07, 1990
    "Body conditions Not recognizable - Traumatic injuries"
    One or both hands not recovered

    It may have been deleted from DoeNetwork - this thread talks about a false ID for the January 7th 1990 one, the Doe page was taken down and seemingly not put up:
    http://www.websleuths.com/forums/sho...D-Again-Jan-90

    Someone linked to a webarchive of the profile:
    https://web.archive.org/web/20041213...s/133umky.html

    From Doe:
    "As for the motive, police think it was possibly a Satanic sacrifice and there was also evidence to suggest homosexual activity before the victim's death"

    This is similar to language used on the FBI info for the '76 Doe (i.e. the subject of the thread we're on now):

    "Evidence recovered from the victim’s body suggests that he was involved in homosexual activity prior to his death."
    https://leb.fbi.gov/2013/march/vicap-alert

    I have no idea how LE could determine "homosexual activity". I guess they discovered male sexual excretions inside the man but that isn't specified. The "satanic ritual" idea for the Jan 90 Doe looks questionable and to me is over-speculation (the "satanic ritual" stuff is an unfounded conspiracy theory more than anything I think). These cases are getting mixed up in my head a lot but it's been interesting to run through them.
