    GA - Atlanta, WhtMale 1029UMGA, 50-70, w/ photo of young girl, Dec'80

    This one seems solveable if he was reported missing.

    www.doenetwork.org/hot/hotcase733.html


    Unidentified White Male





    • The victim was discovered on December 19, 1980 in Atlanta, Fulton County, Georgia
    • Skeletonized Remains

    Vital Statistics





    • Estimated age: 50-70 years old
    • Approximate Height and Weight: 6' 0".
    • Distinguishing Characteristics: Blond-gray hair;
    • Dentals: Had false teeth; a lower denture was found.

    Case History
    The victim was located near a construction site at Northside Parkway and I-75 in Atlanta, Georgia on December 19, 1980.
    Among his possessions were numerous fragmented pieces of paper and a photograph of a young girl.
    The young girl, who appears to have brown eyes and reddish hair, is about 4 years of age (she would be in her thirties now if the picture was taken sometime around 1980).
    Another faded photograph had handwriting which appears to read “HR Bow dyeing and finishing, 278-3448” although this is not certain.
    Fragments of a handwritten letter addressed to “Dear Dad” was singed with love from “Pam T Dwight” or perhaps “Pam + Dwight.”
    Also found was a bus ticket, possibly originating in Panama City, Florida. The writing was faded and mostly illegible.

    Dyeing and Finishing sounds like something to do with textiles.

    I saw this case mentioned in the Sharon Marshall thread and thought it might be solveable if the little girl's picture would be circulated.


    This article has a video link where you can see the letter mentioned.

    There is one Pamela T. Dwight age 52 on Intelius.

    I would find it unusual that a daughter would sign their last name and middle initial on a hand written note to their father, so it may be Pam + Dwight.

    Bump... I was just talking about this case to someone on another forum and am surprised to not see any activity on this thread. This seems like it should be an easy one..... find Pam T. Dwight or siblings relatives Pam and Dwight listed on a people search engine....

    Hoping to see more activity on this one.

    I think it would be Pam & Dwight. I mean who signs a letter to their dad like that. Pam T. Dwight. That would be weird even if she wasn't close to her dad.

    I agree, Pam T Dwight would be an unusual way to sign a letter....
    How can we go about searching for siblings Pam and Dwight? Based on the information provided, I think the siblings would have been in either the GA or FL at the time.... who knows where they might be now.

    I wouldn't think siblings...I would think a husband and wife. The wife is probably the man's daughter. You know, she is signing the letter from herself and her hubby. Why would an adult (or even a child) sign a letter from herself and her brother?

    Too bad we don't have photos of any of the letter/paper fragments.

    That is possible too, unless the big sister wrote the letter and included her little brothers name and he was not yet old enough to print. An adult would most likely not use the + sign but rather spell out and...

    If your scenario is correct the little girl in the photo may possibly be a grandchild rather than his own daughter.

    The picture reminds of a school shot done due to the photo background. Perhaps a pre-school photo. Where she is wearing a turtleneck in the photo, the weather must have been cooler where she lived than possibly Florida. I only say this because of stated possible Florida bus ticket. Grandchild, maybe. As far as the letter goes, I'm thinking Pam + Dwight. Not too many people I know would sign a letter. "Love, Pam T Dwight". Makes no sense, in my opinion.

    Could it be possible he wasn't from the U.S.? Perhaps from overseas?

    I agree about the background, and would hope they have already checked with photographers to see if anyone recognizes it. It is pretty degraded, though.

    You are right that the picture could be from anywhere if it was mailed to him, but it wouldn't be unusual for the child to wear a turtleneck in GA in the winter. The tough thing is not knowing how old the picture is, b/c it looks very 70s to me. I'm guessing that little girl is probably closer to my age (almost 40) and wasn't actually 4 in 1980. I think the picture is older.

    Doing a quick search for the phone number, it pulls up the Adult Probation Office in Montgomery. Who knows how long they've had that number or if that is the right area code, but if the man was a parolee then it might explain why he was estranged from a family who reported him missing.
