    I've updated my recon for that John Doe since it was used in the DoeNet page.

    His facial shape and the details suggest an Arabian ancestry.

    I'm gonna guess he has only one testicle remaining from testicular cancer, which ranged from age 15-30 which is also consistent with his age bracket.

    He was 5'8" and 105 lbs and wore a 34 waist jean. One of those numbers can't possibly be right.

    I agree; my father looked nearly emaciated at one point at 6'2 and 127 lbs. Well I know that 6'2 is obviously not 5'8, but that would have to be really, really thin still.

    This guy isn't in NAMUS, and he was allegedly seen a month after the UI was found, but take a look at his picture. I wonder if his dates could be wrong.


    ETA - I really don't think it's him, I just think the resemblance is striking!

    Agreed! North Africa -- Egypt, Algiers, Libya, Tunisia, Morocco, Western Sahara; possibly Iraq or Iran.

    The Namus circumstances page says, "On 12/30/1997 the decedent was found under some blankets in a ravine." Which makes it sound like he might have been homeless or transient, and perhaps the weight is so low because he was severely malnourished. The weight could also be the weight of the remains when they were found, in which case they wouldn't tell us anything about what he might have weighed in life.

    Also, if he's 70 inches, that's 5'10", not 5'8".
    Opinions expressed are strictly my own (who else would they belong to???)
