I had seen this guy's pic elsewhere (on Ohio's missing persons site, possibly) but I also found him on Doe Network.
LE at the time has suspicions that he faked his own death.

Case File 3635DMWV


Jason Scott Adkins
Missing since January 17, 1999 from Huntington, West Virginia
Classification: Endangered Missing


Vital Statistics
  • Date Of Birth: April 1, 1975
  • Age at Time of Disappearance: 23 years old
  • Height and Weight at Time of Disappearance: 5'9"; 160-170 lbs.
  • Distinguishing Characteristics: White male. Brown hair; blue eyes. Dimples, could have mustache or goatee.
  • Marks, Scars: Small bump at top of nose, surgical scar from appendectomy, previously broken leg (possibly right).
  • Clothing: A brown leather jacket, coveralls, blue jeans and wading boots with inside "Nike" tennis shoes.
  • Jewelry: Possibly wearing a silver chain with a "Cross" pendant. The "cross" possibly has "Jesus" on it also.
  • Nickname: Scott

Circumstances of Disappearance
Jason Adkins was fishing on the Ohio River with his brother on January 17, 1999 when the boat he was in had engine failure.
Around this same time frame, a barge passing by caused a series of large waves in the river where the men were fishing, and caused the boat to capsize. One of the brothers made it out of the boat and went to call for help.
As search and rescue crews arrived, they reported it appeared as if someone had exited the water in a certain area that was different from where the sole survivor would've left the wreckage.
Police asked the family was it a possibility that Adkins could've faked his death, because he owed back child support.
His estranged wife and family do not believe Adkins faked his death that day, because he only was $200 behind on child support. There has never been any trace of Adkins' body if he did perish in the boating accident.
*******
The family also has a website:

http://www.geocities.com/jasonscotta...formation.html

Only a partial skeleton was found...It's possible the right leg was not among the remains, thus the info not being listed for the UID.

I found a Doe Network page for this same missing person, with some interesting info... (I also posted this in the Unidentified forum)

They removed the case from being a hot case; here's the new link: http://www.doenetwork.org/cases/1139umal.html

Since the photos are real, I'm thinking maybe the common law wife had photos of the friend with her husband, but didn't know who it was.

Wow - just wow!

Hot case 776 is now 1139UMAL and that is one heck of a good match.

This is "Chad Singleton":



and this is "Jason Scott Adkins"



Admittedly Scott is slightly too young (three years outside the age range) and 3" taller than the estimated height - but it's only an estimate from a partial skeleton and the height could easily be overstated by an inch or two.

"Chad" had a couple of additional broken bones over Scott but could easily have gotten those in the last five years of his life.

Vask - our posts have obviously crossed but I'm confused as to who the "friend" is with the husband. According to Doe the photos are of the victim and we know the identity the victim was living under but don't know who he really was.

I think it's the same person.

Look at the pictures of Jason Adkins in the top quoted post. Check out the far left picture in the series of 4 pictures.

Now, look at his unusual hair pattern and the part of his hair above his right eye... our left as we look at him. It's very unusual having a hair part that far from center. Now, look at Chad Singleton. It appears he has the same part above his right eye, if you look closely. It's hard to identify the part with his 'hat hair', but it appears the same.

Then, observe how his hair pattern transitions as you travel from his right to his left (our left to our right). Again, the two match. It's a very different hair pattern.

Also, observe the 'look in his eye' in the top quoted post, 3 pictures from the left. It looks almost identical to the 'look in the eye' of Chad Singleton in the pic to the left (on the Doe Network Page) - or the top photo in Cymro's quoted post, above.

If this isn't the same guy, it's his twin brother.

Unhappy Jason Scott match! No it is not !

I feel like crying but also happy to see I am not the only one. Sadly I had been talking to Jason's mother the last couple of weeks and put in a tip I thought also this unidentified was Jason. This guy had no root canal's and Jason had and Jason had a broken I think leg or Ankle at one time. After talking with investigators they informed me of this! OK another thing you all might not know. The mans picture on the right is not the same man on the left! the front view was given to investigators from Florida but we don't know how or why Florida had it. The side view picture that does not look as much like Jason is the man who's wives ID this John Doe had on him. The common law wife provided the side view picture. I just hope this does not effect Jason's mother after finding it was not Jason. This is my first post. . . Monkey

Thanks for letting us know. I have to say that I thought the two pictures "of the victim" didn't look so much alike but Doe does state "images of victim" and I thought I was just being oversensitive.

At the moment then there is only one picture of the UID (assuming it is him) and one picture of a random, slightly shady looking guy?

Shame there's no match of course but onwards and upwards I guess...

I, too, didn't consider the right side picture... as it was a bad picture and I couldn't really see the face. This (guy on right) was the common law husband whose partial skeleton was found with the common law wife's ID?

So, who is the guy on the left/top?

This is what I recieved back from investigator on picture on left and right!
FYI

(I found out the source of the photos on

http://doenetwork.org/cases/1139umal.html

The one on the left was supplied by Niceville FL PD but they did not get any biographical data on him.

The photo on the right was supplied by the common law wife in Blount County Alabama )

He also said he did not know how they got picture in Florida but most likely he had been arrested in Florida on a charge. You know it would have been easier for us to find the person if they would have had more facts in the first place. Heck who know at first they were not the same person in picture? I was confused as they seemed different. Then all the things about partial so how did we know he had never had a broken bone in his legs or ankle? Then also since some of the teeth was missing how was we supposed to know he had no root canals like Jason! Well, I was just in shock to read on on of the post on here after I have been looking for a Red head that the Grateful Dead's hair was not really RED!!!! Even the myspace page someone has on him says RED! I am confused !

I heard back from Doe Network, to their knowledge the two have never been compared.

If LE knows something about the photos, they have yet to update the folks at Doe.

The person who responded to me indicated that the comparison would be forwarded for consideration.

Which two have never been compared?

Sorry, but I've become a bit lost

Is it these two photos that have never been compared?

The UID and Jason Scott Adkins. Controversy over the origin of the photos aside, we still have 1) unidentified male and 2) a missing male. Doe Network is going to look into the possibility of a match, and if they determine there is an issue with the photos then hopefully they will update the UID's page.

I'm a bit surprised that an investigator familiar with the case hasn't contacted Doe themselves and asked the UID's page be updated.

At least having the two ruled out as a match will be in Doe's records.

I think she means that Jason has never been compared to our doe. I am going to hold out hope that this is a match until LE confirms that it is not.

Me is a he

Anyway, that's correct. Whoever that first photo is, darn sure looks like the missing guy to me. Even down to the "heavy" right eyelid which seems to droop just a little at the outer edge.

I do apologize, and I agree whoever the guy is in that first picture sure looks like the missing man.

No need to apologize.
Hopefully the folks at Doe Network can get it all straightened out...If nothing else, we've alerted them to a potential problem. I suppose the possibility exists that photo #1 is a different missing person, and LE somewhere submitted it as a potential match.

That's what I meant when I responded earlier - that the first pic looks like Jason. Hopefully the Doe Network will respond quickly!!!
