    KS - Dickinson County, 1974 UID Exumed in Oct 2016 to Verify Possible Match

    I looked and could not find a thread for this case.

    Dickinson County- In April, the Dickinson County Sheriff’s Department was notified by the Kansas Bureau of Investigation (KBI) of a possible match between unidentified remains found near Upland in Dickinson County in 1974 and a person reported missing from Tulsa, Oklahoma in 1974. ...

    Investigation conducted by the Sheriff’s Department determined it was necessary to exhume the remains of the unidentified victim to attempt to determine if the remains were in fact the missing person.

    On Wednesday morning, the Sheriff’s Department and the KBI exhumed the remains.

    ...

    The remains will be sent to a laboratory for comparison with information provided in the Tulsa, Oklahoma case.

    Investigation conducted in 1974 by the KBI indentified a serial killer, Cecil Henry Floyd, as the suspect in the Dickinson county case. Investigative reports indicate that Floyd admitted to killing 11 individuals, four killings in Florida, one killing in Kansas, and one killing in Nebraska and the remainder of the killings in Indiana.

    The articles do not say which UID case it is but I *think* it could be this one: https://identifyus.org/en/cases/2353

    I also suspect they are trying to match the UID with Alan Soper as he is the only one I found missing from Tulsa, OK in 1974: https://www.findthemissing.org/en/cases/7770/

    Alan's stuff was found in Needles, CA in 1977. Interesting.
