    NY - James Knox, 24, Warsaw, 9 Dec 1979

    I found another photo for a MP who is listed in NamUs with a no-photo casefile. I found it among the freshmen in the 1971 Warsaw (NY) High School yearbook. The book shows portraits only for the seniors. The underclassmen are shown in group photos. Unfortunately, the 1974 book wasn't available, so I could not obtain his senior portrait.

    The photo is very poor quality and was taken 8 years prior to his disappearance, but you can get a general sense of what he looked like. It appears that there is some assymetry in his face, and he might have a problem with his left eye, though none of this is mentioned in his NamUs casefile.

    NamUs MP # 9602

    WARSAW, N.Y. (WIVB) — New York State Police are still investigating a nearly 38-year-old cold case.
    When Knox suddenly disappeared, had been living on Wyoming St., and was on medical leave from Leroy Machine Company in Leroy.

    Knox is described as white, 5’11” and 150 lbs. He was described as having dark blond hair, blue eyes and glasses.

    Anyone with information related to the investigation is asked to call Investigator John Neeley at (585) 786-7244. Callers are asked to refer to case #3029766.

    I'm glad to see NY police are actively investigating this case still...I do see some similarities between James and the Canadian JD, but I'm not sure about the timing. James went missing Dec 1979, JD was found in April 1980 but estimated date of death 1971-1978, which was before James disappeared. Definitely worth looking into, thought.
