    WA - Ronald Frye, 15, Coupeville, 25 Sept 1993

    Not everything matches up,but a side by side looks like a good match.
    Where's Logan Tucker?

    Pretty sure the original poster was trying to link here. Anyway, I don't think it's a match. Frye is much taller, has a different hair color, and most importantly has a tattoo that the Grateful Dead fan lacks.

    Sorry about that. Sometimes I get a little over excited after looking at pictures for a few hrs. Sometimes I'm not sure who I am after a long night of searching. I didn't even see that he had a tattoo.

    NP. IMO, can't rule out based on tattoo...he was in MVA, did Jason Doe have any skin missing where there could have been a tattoo?

    Best thing to do is match stats side by side and go from there..that is what I have been doing with these 2 today, just to start:

    Frye went missing in 9/93, Jason found 6/95...could be.

    Frye missing from Island City, WA, Jason found in Greenville City, VA. How far is this?

    Frye is 6'2", I can't find Jason listed anywhere taller than 5'9". I would think the ME would be accurate on height only because Jason wasn't skeletal, found years later, it was MVA and they were found w/in 24 hours I suppose.

    Dentals available for both. Dentals are quick and easy comparison. Why not, just for the heck of it, ask that they be compared? No stone unturned.

    Has Frye been investigated? Was he a dead head fan? What do we know about him? Media Links about his disappearance?

    I don't think it's him based on stats, BUT, and BIG BUT, stats for UID can be sooooo wrong. (as in any UID case) Never hurts to dig some more, then post what's found, see if we can rule out positively ourselves..if not, ask for dental comparison, that's easy.

    ruled out

    I was going through old emails, and at one time sent a tip for a UID case so I thought i'd post the rule out on this thread and the email.. Incase its helpful to someone on either case

    Sheriff's Office Case Number:
    Medical Examiner's 97C-337
    Located on July 12, 1997 in Fort Collins, Larimer County, Colorado.
    Estimated Date of Death: July 6, 1997

    "We have finally been able to (unfortunately) rule out Mr. Ronald Frye
    from Washington state as being our John Doe. Although Mr. Frye had a
    similar tattoo, it was located on his arm, not his thumb.

    Thank you for your tip. Please let us know if you come across any
    other possible matches. At this point, this case will only be solved
    with the public's interest and help!"

    I'm probably not telling anyone anything they don't already know, but the 'circle A' symbol is the 'anarchy symbol,' frequently seen on kids in the punk rock scene (as well as actual anarchists). Here's an Imgur image of just such a tattoo.

    Look at his Charley profile, what a beautiful smile...

    Does LE suspect his friends may have hurt him?
