    AK - Anchorage, WhtMale 439UMAK, 25-40, naked, fell from flagpole, Aug'89

    Thoughts?

    No NamUs File
    W/M Found 8/23/89

    Doe File 439UMAK: http://www.doenetwork.org/cases/439umak.html

    Gordon Lopez
    He's on the young side of the age range, but he does have an AK connection and his Demographics fit pretty good so, I thought I'd throw it out in the ring-LKA 1/1986

    Lopez appears to have more distance between his lip & chin & the nose turns differently, but the picture of the unknown person is a reconstruction & details could easily have been skewed. Some artists are better than others. I think the straight (not much arch) eyebrows are very much alike.

    The other info is certainly close enough to submit...... got my fingers crossed Snuffy, you're on a roll!

    Certainly looks possible. Yeah, he's at the young end of the range, but still in it. The middle picture of Gordon especially bears strong resemblance to the UID. I say send it in.

    Snufamonbobball -- I think that is worth submitting for sure. If you submit it please let us know if you hear back.

    Aside from not knowing how he would have gotten to AK, seems very possible.
    And the distance isn't that big a deal, since if these people were where they were supposed to be, we wouldn't be looking, would we?

    I'd say go for it....looks good.
    JMO. Unless there's a link, I can't prove it.

    I did submit Mr. Lopez to his NamUs case manager, she emailed me back today and said she has contacted Alaska and Portland. She'll let me know when she hears back.

    In the mean time, keep Gordon in mind while you float around in cyberspace.

    I got an email from a Portland detective saying he can't comment on Gordon because it's an open investigation and he can't comment on the Alaska guy because it's not his case.

    There wasn't any confidentiality clause in his email (often there is), so I figured I'd update.

    I have no clue if Gordon has been ruled out, but it's nice that he took the time to respond quickly (or at all) though, so everyone please keep Gordon in mind and the guy from Alaska too.

    Thanks!

    How about Steven Lee Harbaugh?

    The reconstruction picture somewhat resembles Harbaugh. There seems to be about a 2-3 inch discrepency between the two (however, the Doe estimation could be off, sometimes is). The ages match and Harbaugh disappeared under unclear circumstances. The Doe committed suicide about a year later.

    The location and resemblance is great but Harbaugh went missing in 1998 and the UID was discovered in 1989.

    Boy, I read that wrong. Darn discalcula. I read it as gone missing in '88, not '98..

    Sorry about that guys!
