    When I click on the link it takes me to a page on reunion.com to buy a subscription so I can't access the info at the link provided.

    It says on Doe he is also known as Joe Jeffco...

    This one always strikes me as odd, as if the police just "lost" him. Do you think maybe he had some sort of accident or was assaulted by someone (another inmate or possibly even by the use of restraints or something) & died while in custody & they covered it up?

    I have read about this case and it does sound strange regarding the police. I did read somewhere that he was seen after the arrest.I will have to try to find that bit of info.

    I wish there was more information about him available. He was a pretty big guy. And he simply vanished?

    He obviously had served in the Marine Corps. I wonder if he was still on active duty or in the USMC Reserves when he went missing.

    And what is the story with his nickname/alias of "Joe Jeffco"?

    Here is one link to the story reflecting a possible sighting the day after his father went to see him in jail. This is strange in that it says his brother saw him. Also Charley project lists a possible sighting one week later.

    Soriano said that in September 2010, New York State Police submitted skeletal remains of a "John Doe" found in August 1984 in Wawarsing, Ulster County, NY, to the New York City medical examiner in order to generate a DNA profile.

    In May 2011, detectives were told by the university that the family DNA samples matched the remains from New York state, the prosecutor's office statement said.

    Mmh. Interesting. In this link the story of how he went missing sounds completely different. Nothing about him being arrested and vanishing during a transfer.

    On May 10, 1973 the Bridgewater Police Department received a report that Dziogwo, who was 25 years old at the time, was missing from his Drake Street residence in Bound Brook, where he lived with his wife and young daughter, Soriano said. Family members have continued the search for Dziowo through the years, including through Internet searches and social media postings, the statement said.

    Interviews conducted in the tri-state area determined that Dziogwo was last seen in May 1973 staying with a man named "Bear" at a rental bungalow behind the former Alibi Bar on Route 28 in Branchburg, the statement said.

    Investigators said Dzogwo's death has been rules a homicide, but that the cause and manner of the death are not being released to avoid jeopardizing the investigation.
    How can the story change so much?
