    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.

    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?

    Permission error, so he's been identified. I tried to check to see who he was, but there's an inordinate number of bodies set ablaze in the Philadelphia area in 2016 to present, so it's near impossible to search.
