    Circumstances of Discovery
    A fisherman cutting through a field in the 1200 block of Oakland Boulevard, just north of Interstate 30, found the decedent's skeletal remains under a tree in a brushy ravine. A barrel was found nearby and a clothesline-like cord with a noose dangled from a tree.
    The acre of field is not entirely secluded but surrounded by a neighborhood, it's just vacant enough to be off the beaten path.
    A review of all Fort Worth missing persons cases at the time yielded no clues to the man's identity, nor did a check with the Missing Persons Clearing House.

    I submitted Edgar Orlando Forbes and Asamte' Anton Willoughby as a potential match on the Doe Network. I got an email ruling out Forbes by DNA, and I am currently awaiting an email for Willoughby.

    Just received the email regarding Willoughby. They said the comparison doesn't seem to have been done before and they will contact me further if it is a match. Fingers crossed!
