    NY - Harriman State Park, WhtMale 2385UMNY, 64, tentatively ID'd, Dec'08

    http://www.lohud.com/article/2008812150335

    "SUFFERN - Two hikers discovered a dead man lying about 20 feet off a trail in Harriman State Park yesterday morning.
    About 7:15 a.m., they called Suffern police to the location, close to the entrance of the Suffern-Bear Mountain Trail. Local police then called on the state park police and park forest rangers to investigate the finding.


    The man was described as being white and in his mid-60s, park police said. The Rockland County Medical Examiner's Office, which also went to the area, will conduct an autopsy to determine how the man died."

    "SUFFERN - The identity of an older man found dead in the Harriman State Park woods remained unknown yesterday as investigators continued looking into the circumstances surrounding his death.
    A preliminary autopsy didn't find any signs of trauma to the man's body, but what caused his death was pending, said Shivonne Hutson, an investigator with the Rockland Medical Examiner's Office."

    Bump. The information indicating the 'tentative match' at Doenetwork was updated in 2008. Has there been any new information indicating the match was confirmed?

    Hard to believe no one is looking for John and LE can't find someway to confirm this tentative match.

    There are a few cases here which have pending tentative matches that linger for years. It breaks my heart to know some family and a John or Jane doe is left in limbo for years pending confirmation of identification.
