    Posting here what I just posted on another thread. Doesn't mean they are related... although I found it worth mentioning.

    There was another John Doe found before this one (WhtMale 8UMGA) in the same location, months before.

    John Doe 1011UMGA was a young Black male found on June 10, 1978. He was also found in coal car at the Eatonton Georgia Power Plant.
