    Hopefully NamUs will be updated with a photo and if there is any other helpful information, a relative will post it online.
    He's been missing for over 30 years and only in NamUs since 2018 :(

    Do you think he could be ( NamUs #UP4107 )? He's listed as white in NamUs, but Wikipedia says that the victim was Hispanic. Here's a link to Wikipedia's page where there's a photo of the Los Angeles County John Doe (1987), although it's not really useful without a photo of Desiderio. List of unidentified murder victims in California - Wikipedia

    I think this could be a match, height and weight are exact, same state.
    The report mentions that desiderios hairline is receding, the john doe doesnt appear to have one?
    I would submit it anyway, too close to ignore.

    Edit: hes already been submitted so fingers crossed for a match :)

    Oh, I got too excited about the other details and forgot about the receding hairline - it didn't look receding. But hey, the top of Doe's head isn't visible, so we can't know, right? 114 miles is not too much, considering the usual distance in the US, I think.
