    one thing I find is that if the UID is listed as Native American, there is almost never any closure to the case.

    I have no facts to back this up, but I suspect Native Americans don't report the goings on of their tribes to the outside authorities so the rest of us have no clue who might be missing from their communties.

    This thread needs attention. It's the only unidentified person in the entire state. Let's make it a zero. It might be very difficult given the circumstances, however.

    Innocente Yanez?

    I can't help but notice a similarity here:


    You'll need to uncheck the box on the left to deblur the reconstructions on the right. The skeletal height is off, but that wouldn't be the first time.
