    The location (Mesa AZ) is spot-on.
    His age (30) is consistent.
    The timeframe (10 months) is consistent.

    He is a little taller and quite a bit heavier than the estimate though.

    The big questions are did he have a significant injury to his right side, and did he have a missing #10 upper-left-lateral-incisor and a rotated #11 upper-left-canine.

    Yes, the 32x30 jeans are consistent with the UID height of 66". If Zinza wore those it would have to have been because he was hard up for clothing. Not sure what his financial situation was.
