    OR - John Burl Cranford, 43, Eugene, 17 Aug 1996

    John Burl Cranford


    A wallet discovered near a small pile of bones last week contained the identification of a man who was last seen a decade ago, the authorities said.

    Lane County sheriff's investigators declined to disclose the name on the Oregon driver's license, and said they won't know for certain whose remains were found until they get a DNA match.

    Detectives have yet to find relatives of the man whose name appears on the license.

    "We have not officially released the name, in part because we have not been able to notify next of kin," said Lt. Randy Smith of the Lane County Sheriff's Office.

    Smith, however, said the identification card belonged to a person who was reported missing in Lane County in 1996.

    The Cottage Grove resident who discovered the bones said the driver's license belonged to John Burl Cranford.

    John Perry spotted the bones while walking his dog near Highway 99.

    It is my understanding at this time that confirmation has not been made as of yet because his family has not been located to do a DNA comparison.

    He is listed as missing on doe network

    He is listed under resolved in Charley Project.
