Hello! This is my first post so I hope I do this right! I have been fascinated w/ this case so here is my suggestion for BK.
John Wesley Davis
I just see so much in the smile and eyes.
I just can't believe that no one has claimed him. BTW: They say that he has a "regional' accent. What region? Did I miss it?
Thank you all and I am honored to be on here.

This site says unsolved homicide.
Leon County, FL, website. No new information.
Listed as missing person.
Not a lot of details about this person.
Need side by side photos with BK.
There is a possible look of BK.

John Wesley Davis, missing since 2/5/1981 from Tallahassee, Fl.
I think there is a look of Benjaman Kyle.
I cannot find information about John W Davis online.
Today, I posted his information on Tallahassee, Fl topix forum.

Could someone do a side by side? Doing that is not my strength.

IMO, this one needs looking into, maybe finding out if he had scars. He's the right height, and looking at the pic, I would say the weight is a little off, possible by 15-20 lbs. making him in the pic about 180-185 lbs. and he has been missing since 81. I think the ears, though facing down a bit, seem to line up. The con would be for me, the pic's show a dimple or a dark spot in the chin, but this could be the picture itself, and the one in charley's on the right is age progression on the man, so with that said, imo, it needs some further research with le.

Even though I've only been here a short time, to me this looks like the best match so far.
Can I clarify something? what does "charley" mean in your post above, carolwood? Is the right photo an age progression of JW Davis? If so, it's uncanny.

I am not seeing what you guys are seeing; in Davis I see a dimpled chin and a different face shape, as well as the nose being different from BK's, but JMO...if it is not BK, perhaps he is worth sleuthing out as a separate missing person? Wondering if he has been located??email me

"Charley" is charleyproject.org, a missing persons site named after a child who went missing in the 1800s. The picture on the right is another photo of Benjamin, not an age progression.
This potential match is very interesting! I'm eager to hear more.

taking a second look at the link on charleyproject, I get the hit that it isn't Benjaman. JMO

John Wesley Davis:
Pro: I think the ears line up. That is something I have not found too often in these comparisons. Brown hair, blue eyes. Eyes seem hooded in both. Height matches.
Con: Disappeared in 1981. So long ago. 28 years ago. Where would he have been?
Weight is less, but anyone could put on pounds in 28 yrs.
John W Davis nose seems a little more bulbous on the end.
I think we need more information from LE.
The scars, other identifiying marks. What were the cirumstances of his disappearing? Was the car in the airport parking lot parked by him? Did the car have blood stains in it? Were there fingerprints?
Is there dna or dental available for a match?
Why does one site say possible homicide and the others say missing?
I will take on calling LE in Florida, see what I can find out.
