    Good idea. I don't think it's a match. I can't begin to get the two faces to line up right by changing the sizes of the photos, and Curry's ears are very flat against his head, brow line is not the same, forehead's not the same, hard to say about the nose since the UID has some facial damage, and the angle is a bit different.

    Hello

    Hello, Yeah, I think it is weird, if he was ID'd, why is he still up on all the websites. I think Steven Gonzales looks like a good match, the nose in particular catches my eye. The delay in ID'ing him might be because the UID is listed as white and Steven is Hispanic, there are not a lot of Hispanics with red hair and people wouldn't guess that the UID was hispanic. I'm gonna try to get more info on Gonzales...Maureen

    When I spoke to the police officer, he was real vague with no explanation as to how the identity was made. I do remember him saying he could not remember the details. So it does leave this questionable.

    Unfortunately, there are some police that just do this as a job and have no passion for the field.

    Just a thought - seems there may be some doubt as to the ID - if it's not Michael Curry, then perhaps ..Robert Kovack ?http://www.doenetwork.org/cases/3412dmva.html

    Dearmont,

    There is a resemblance! Also, the unidentified man said that he was from West Virginia, while Robert Kovack went missing on his way to West Virginia to attend a college football game. (Although there is a few months of difference between the disappearance of Robert and the discovery of the unidentified victim.)

    The unidentified man has a B- blood type. That's a rare type. I wonder if Robert Kovack's blood type is on record anywhere. Also, Kovack may sound like Hicks or Hex if the person talking is injured especially with head trauma.

    I'll go ahead and change this back to unidentified since the link to doenetwork still shows he is unidentified. In the future, PLEASE send a pm to a mod regarding any changes which need to be addressed by a mod. with the hundreds of thousands of posts here, it is likely a post will not be seen by a mod, so we ask you please send to us via pm. Thank you!

    What about Fred Charles Moseley
    http://www.doenetwork.org/cases/3334dmtx.html

    His coloring is almost right, his height is right, and those of his features that wouldn't be messed around by a head injury look somewhat similar. His age is almost right if they are talking about when he died, not when he sustained his injury. Maybe he walked off from his car intending to kill himself and then had last minute doubts and decided that the problem wasn't himself so much as his home/town/religious school/friends/family and it would be better to leave it all behind instead and live rough until he turned 18 and couldn't be forced back? The real stumbling block is that Fred had a large birthmark and the John Doe had no identifying marks, but maybe during the accident he sustained a grazing injury to the area of the birthmark that confused matters a bit?

    Does anyone know if this guy was also paralyzed from the accident? The has a collar for a tracheotomy tube in the pictures on NCMA. After thinking maybe that was just for when he was on a ventilator.

    Also, the accident was in 1998 but he died over two years later. In the pics on NCMA his eyes are open.. is he alive in those pics? Cause I wonder how bad his injury was. Was he in a assisted living place? Was he awake and could he communicate with other people or was he in a coma? Maybe he told the people where ever he was a clue to who he was, but they didn't know that's what he meant...

    As for his hair, I don't consider that color to be 'red'. It looks brown in the pics, it might have some red in it, but if I was reporting someone as missing I'd give the hair color as brown w/ maybe a mention of red highlights.

    The man was in a persistent vegetative state (i.e., a state of being awake, but not aware), and yes, he was in an assisted living facility.

    Immediately after being hit, he made a few vague comments to paramedics that his name was Steven Hicks, and that he may have come from West Virginia, but he was unable to communicate anything meaningful thereafter. Of course, we don't know how lucid he was when he made those comments.

    I thought that maybe he was unable to pronounce his true last name, and on that premise, I looked for people named Steve or Steven with last names starting with "H", and came across Steven Harbaugh.


    Here are a couple of additional photos of the John Doe.

    Hattiesburg John doe

    Maybe his name isnt Steve Hicks or Steve Hix. Maybe he was trying to say his name is Steve and he is from Hix, WV or he was on his way to Hix, WV? There is a Hix, West Virginia and it's in Summers County WV and there is also a Hix, WV located in MCDowell County West Virginia.

    On namus no one has been ruled out. He's went from unidentified to supposedly identified, back to unidentified. That seems odd to me. I think he resembles Robert Kovach myself. Wondering if perhaps he was trying to give the name of the perp.

    Found Steven Branston missing since 1996. Had been in California, traveled to Hawaii and then disappeared. The physical descriptions are close. What do you all think? http://www.nampn.org/cases/branston_steven.html

    I think it unlikely Branston left Hawaii alive.
