    Zooming in on the charms, one says San Miguel. With the "A" on the charms, maybe his first name starts with the letter "A"?

    Ok, none that fit the timeline mentioned in namus of a few weeks with the last name Lopez. But a depressing number of missing people in Pima county who went missing while crossing the border. Also, black hiking boots, blue jeans, and a black belt seem to be very common things for border crossers to be wearing.

    Looking at the GPS coordinates where he was found he had just walked passed a fire station. I'm thinking if he was a citizen he would have stopped there if he was in physical trouble.

    The pocket knife is available via catalog. I didn't find this exact one but there are quite similar new ones. This one looks to be older. Perhaps the knife was pertaining to, or belonged to, a family member in the states and the last name is the relation's last name.

    Does it seem odd to anyone that his hand(s) was/were missing?

    Since it doesn't say that his hands had been cut off, I'm guessing the hands being missing is the result of wildlife. I have read on other cases that the hands are the first parts to be carried off by small animals.

    The missing hands... I remember seeing quite a few UIDs in Hidalgo County Texas (on the border) in Namus when looking a few weeks ago. I assumed it happened prior to disposal (cartel-related or an illegal immigrant killer) but animals makes sense too.
