I think the Dead tended to just have a set of shirts for the whole tour, or maybe one for East Coast and one for West Coast legs, something like that. It is kind of rare for there to be a shirt made specifically for one show, so my guess is its just a general 1995 tour shirt. In that case there probably wouldn't be any way to trace the purchase to any particular venue.
I looked for it online but I couldn't find that particular shirt anywhere to get any more info on it. I do wish there was a picture of the back of the shirt just to satisfy my curiosity, but I can't seem to find one?

The reason I started thinking about the shirt is because I was wondering, if Jason purchased the shirt at that show, what happened to the one he was wearing before he bought it? Where were his other belongings? Even if you're on a short road trip, you usually bring a change of clothes in a backpack or something.
Makes me wonder if he indeed did miss a ride with someone (ie, the Carolines) who may have had some of his stuff with them.

so i went through the following states websites looking for missing people because sometimes they have missing people on there that arent on the missingkids.com website. I went to the georgia, alabama, tennessee, arkansas, texas, and oklahoma state sites and found nothing so far. I'm still trying to find a way to see more surrounding states sites to see if he's on one of those.
as for the dentist thing do we know if he just had perfect looking teeth or if he had work done? If he had work done then we can try going to the american dental association website and contacting them to see if they would put something tiny in there about gd fan.
also maybe we could divide up the southern states and contact the major newspapers from each state and put in a little tiny thing somewhere asking if someone knows him
what do you guys think?

Last night I read through the previous thread on this case and was very impressed with the dedication and hard work of so many sleuthers. I, like others, am inclined to believe JD was never reported missing, before or after his death. I was particularly struck by one posters suggestion (supported by information gleaned from the ME) that JD's family
became aware of his fate when this case was first publicized but for reasons unknown, perhaps financial, did not claim his body.
I would still love for this Doe to be identified though my optimism has faded. What keeps me hopeful is to see how many people have been moved by this case over the years and truly care about finding out who 'Jason' was, it is inspiring.

Is everyone sure that the 914 was a prefix and not an area code? 914 used to be the area code for a large suburban area outside NY city. It was rockland and other counties, I believe they changed it a few years ago to be just westchester across the hudson from Rockland.

I received an email fro the Virgina Medical Examiner's office and they are going to contact the Australian Federal Police and ask for fingerprints to see if Missing Daniel Nicholas Sheppard is our Grateful Dead Fan. Here is the email.
Hello Ms. ,
We have received your e-mail regarding our unidentified white male from 1995. Have you been in contact with the police who investigated the missing persons case of Daniel Sheppard? Can you provide us with their contact info so that we may call them and possible obtain dental records or fingerprints?
Thank you for your help!
--Both GDF and Daniel Sheppard have fingerprints on file so I am hoping to find out if there is a match and will post any updates here.
