    IL - Bolingbrook, BlkMale 1485UMIL, 18-24, behind truck stop, Apr'98

    Here is James Kimball's link from Charley Project http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/...all_james.html

    Missing April 1993 from Oak Park IL
    Age 24
    5'7 165 lbs
    Brown Hair

    UID in Namus https://identifyus.org/cases/5207?page=case_information

    The same UID on Doe Network http://www.doenetwork.org/cases/1485umil.html

    The UID's height on Namus is listed as 71 inches but on the Doe Network is listed as 5'8??

    The UID had Brown Hair, was between 20-30yrs old

    UID was believed to have died 3-5 yrs prior to finding in 1998... James Kimball went missing in 1993.

    Oak Park where James was from and Bolingbrook where the UID was found are 37 miles apart.

    James is not listed as a rule out in Namus for this UID.


    What do you all think??

    Clothing is off too. The area in BB, is a big truck stop. I honestly think someone from anywhere could have stopped there..... so I wouldn't automatically think the UID is local.

    However, it is close enough and who knows how complete missing persons data was back in 93. Being from the immediate area, I think I'd try contacting Oak Park first, but I've never contacted them regarding a case before so no idea how they would be. It's worth a shot, even if for no other reason than to rule out.

    hth

    ETA: IIRC this 55/53 intersection is not off the path from I-80, and as we all know 80 runs across country. I just can't picture the route in my mind, I can only picture 294/55/80

    another possibility?

    Hey Cubby - I was also thinking that perhaps this UID could be Michael Dean Andrews: http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/...s_michael.html

    If you're contacting the local authorities, can you suggest Michael as well?

    TIA!

    Cubby,

    Yeah I knew the clothing was off, and the UID could have came from anywhere in the US since being found behind a truck stop, but what caught my eye is that James wasn't listed on the Ruled out list.

    I would have thought that where the UID was found and from where James was from the LE would have tried to see if it were a possible match??

    Jumping Bean,

    Maybe I will send an email to the Will County's Corners office since they are listed as the contact office for the UID. I will ask about both James and Michael.

    I sent an email to Will County's Corners office, to see about James and Michael as both being a possible match. Will let ya all know when and if I hear something back.

    Thanks Cubby and jumping bean for you input!

    Possible but:

    1. XL jacket, but only 160 lbs? Homeless or transient or something is off.

    2. Pager? Would a man with a schizoid disorder have been carrying one in 1993? It's possible (and James did work) but I would expect a pager back then to be a sign either of relative affluence or involvement in drug deals.

    Also can a pager not be traced like a cell phone? If it was in some way unregistered but active that would tend to indicate that the victim was involved in criminal activity prior to his death and that he wasn't a random victim of robbery etc.

    Chaddy, neither James Kimball nor Michael Dean Andrews are listed as rule outs for this UID.

    what ever became of your submission?

    Ha Webrocket,

    I don't remember...LOL.. I must not have received an email back... Maybe I will resubmit!!!... I save all the emails I receive back from LE, etc, and I don't have any on this case.

    I will send both of these men in. Thanks for the reminder!
