    NY - Plainview - Wht/HispMale (UP 140), 23-57, Died >20 yrs Prior -Gold Watch, Mar'04

    PLAINVIEW, N.Y. (CBS) @ Police are using modern technology to solve the ultimate cold case. Investigators were actually able to reconstruct the face of the victim whose remains
    may have been buried for more than 20 years.
    It was March 2004 when state troopers responded to a car crash on the Northern State Parkway in Plainview. It was there rescuers stumbled
    onto bones unearthed in a shallow grave. Now, through the wonders of modern science, those skeletal remains believed buried for 27 years,
    now have a face.

    With his height being only 5'2" I would think we should be able to narrow this down considerably.

    So, we need to start looking at men missing at 20 or 25 years ago.

    The dates don't match up, but the face looks similar and the geographical area is nearby.

    This young man looks very similar, but again, the height is off. I wish we could get that height of 5'2" on UID confirmed.

    Maybe I should have collected all of these for one post.

    This man has similar appearance, area, and time of disappearance, but height is off.

    I've been searching and searching for a possible match and you'd think it would be easy to at least come up with a couple of possibilities based off of JD's height alone but so far I haven't had much luck. So far I've went through 1982-1985 on the Charley Project website and have come up with pretty much nothing.

    I found this guy that is unlikely because of his height which is listed at 5' 8" (JD is listed as 5' 2") but something about the face looks similar to me -

    http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/...sa_donald.html

    I've seen a couple that looked somewhat similar to the JD sketch but they were much too tall to be even remotely possible.

    I also found this man but it seems very unlikely for a number of reasons. First of all he was from Michigan. The men who were believed to have murdered him were charged with the crime and they were a couple of hunters that lived out in the woods off of the land so I doubt they would drive all that way to bury him. It does not list his height however and you never know.

    I'm off to keep looking for a match.

    The article states that the john doe was found in 2004 and has been buried since around 1977. But he was wearing a jacket imported in 1982. Okay, I'm no math wizard, but did he import a jacket while underground? So if the jacket was only a year or so old, then the earliest he could have been buried is 1982/83. So if he was estimated at 30 at time of death, then his dob would be 1952/53 or thereabouts. Second question to all you fashion moguls out there, were men still wearing bell bottom pants in 82/83, was that about disco fever time, Saturday Night Fever I can't remember, I'm getting old.

    I'm just updating that I went through from 1982-1986 now and I'm still not coming up with any really good matches. Here is what I came up with for 1986 -

    This guy seems too young as the police believe JD was about 30 years old and he's from CA -

    http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/...christian.html


    What do you guys think about this man? -

    http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/...ia_freddy.html


    I found this man and the age and height fit. It says that he is Asian but to me he looks like he could pass for biracial or Hispanic. I think their are similarities between the JD sketch and his picture. -

    http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/h/hy_nam.html


    Well I'm done searching for the night but I'll keep looking tomorrow if I have time. I'm sorry the possible matches I've posted tonight are so unlikely to actually be JD but I've looked through hundreds of missing people and I'm just not finding any great matches for this man. I hope that I or someone else here has better luck tomorrow.

    Also they found a plastic "hair pick" in his pocket. The only guys that used hair picks had curly hair and usually wore in sort of Afro style, that I remember anyway.

    I wonder if he could have been a jockey, exercise rider, or someone associated with the track? Aqueduct is not too far away. Maybe an ex-jockey turned gambler or bookie? That can be a real vagabond lifestyle. Obviously robbery wasn't a motive, with the $600 watch. Very mysterious.

    Hmmm... I didn't see that detail. All the more reason to wonder if he was a jockey, so many Latin Americans in that field. If he came from another country to race, then he probably wouldn't be on the Doe Network.

    I noticed the same thing too and thought it was odd. I've been searching through people who went missing starting in 1982 but it would be nice to know if that was a typo and the article meant to state that the jacket was from 1972. I'm not sure about the fashion at the time but I would imagine that there are a lot of men who just wear whatever they have in the closet because they don't care to go shopping for clothes.

    Definitely '80s jacket, since they have the manufacturing date down. Gotta think about the bell bottoms, that seems off for the '80s. The fancy watch makes me think he was probably someone who cared about his clothes.
