    I wonder if this guy was a cross dresser or had a fetish for women's clothes

    I'm thinking that he might have been working as a "drag queen" because of the bra and falsies

    Harold Lawson went missing from San Francisco on February 3, 1983 and wears women's clothing. There are some discrepancies between the two, but he went missing from about 30 miles away and was known to dress as a woman (I don't think this is a very common trait).

    I think maybe this was a young man and perhaps not even a "known" cross dresser...

    Not so sure about Jeffrey, he went missing quite some time earlier, more than a year.

    Has anyone looked at Norman Creech? His hairline is exactly the same and the eyes look similar to the reconstruction. Also take a look at the dates.

    Norman Creech looks a lot like the UID.

    The UID and Norman Creech both have fingerprints entered in Namus.

    Thanks Donjeta. I just sent off an e-mail to Mrs. Sutherland. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that this could possibly be Norman.

    Also the clothing could have been to throw off police or the men that were beating Norman the night he went missing might have been attacking him as some sort of hate crime. You never know.

    The hairline is so exact, the other features so similar, and when I saw the date I knew I had to contact someone.

    Update:

    I received an e-mail from Carrie Sutherland who thanked me and said that she would look into it. Fingers crossed!

    I know that this was fiction, but I vaguely remember my mom watching a BBC mystery on tv where the father hated the son because he wasn't his real son and the product of his wife's affair. He killed him and dressed him as a woman because he didn't like the young man. I guess something like that could have happened (not that the he is the product of an affair, that someone put him in drag because they hated him).

    I could see something like that too, a couple of guys dressing him like that to humiliate him.

    I'm really hoping this is a match. I haven't heard back from Mrs. Sutherland but I'm guessing that it shouldn't take long to compare fingerprints. My goal is always to give someone back their name and send them home.
