    Huh. Mr. Carbuff has a ring exactly like the gold one. The stone is a tiger's eye in his; I don't know how the burning might have changed it.

    Photos of the lot here

    Apparently he was burned in broad daylight.

    The incident occurred around 10:30 a.m. Friday near the intersection of 17th Street and Allegheny Avenue.

    Firefighters were called to the area after a report of a fire in an empty lot.

    I know the NAMUS page says 'white,' but is that a certainty? It's certainly rarer for a white person to have dreads.

    My guess is that this UID is on the older side, considering the pins and such. (Grateful Dead, Public Enemy)

    You see quite a number of white people with dreads in the college and artsy areas of Boston, so I imagine that's true in most big cities as well. Mostly college kids and artsy types.

    I just saw a Hispanic woman w her baby in a sling and her husband had long hair. it is unique but not unheard of. but it should make it easier to ID him I would think?
