    I’d give it a try! I tried to suggest him to the DDP but the process asked me about an agency, maybe I clicked the wrong link.

    Thank you for the link!

    Something that is kinda strange is that his dentals are not available. Are they available if the coroner notes that dental work has been done?

    Yeah, maybe they haven't been spread to every dentist at Long Beach. I think our guy is local to California, if he indeed was visiting Ripples then he could have come for the day, he could have hitchhiked to get up there. My guess is that he rejected someone.

    I'm unsure if this is strange but this case gets me so upset and sad, last night i cried for him, there's something about this that just lingers on my mind, i can't imagine someone hurting him and leaving him on the side of the street. He seemed like a fun person, a free spirit. I often think of him.

    I saw his yearbook photo, there is resemblance but a dna match will prove if he’s indeed out guy.

    It's on the pages of the online version, i'm unsure if i can post them here though as i don't want to break the rules.

    So far, there are two photos of the yearbook, from 1973 to 1974.

    Actually, it looks like Carl has posted photos of yearbooks here, so I think your good, but I am not sure.

    Jeff Daum, Michelle's foster brother.
    Has anyone here been in contact with her?

    Jeff's yearbook photos do resemble our guy a lot, his nose seems like a match and the way he combs his hair is very similar to the way the UID's hair is parted. If he is indeed JD then he would have been 21/22 at the time of his passing.

    I'm trying not to get my hopes up as Beth Doe's case followed a similar trend. If Jeff is not JD then i just hope that he's found alive and well.

    I did a side by side of the post mortem photo (the new one) and Jeff Daum's yearbook photos and the similarities are uncanny. Even though the quality of the yb photos aren't the best, I'd bet he's our guy. I hope DNA doe projects consider John Doe's case one of these days.

    Yes, I agree.
    And I was thinking if Michelle isn't around anymore, who is there to make a missing person report on Jeff?
    Or did LE find him alive for her, in which case we can stop spending time on him?

    I feel like there is something amiss with him, but looking at his features separately there is no denying some look identical.

    When Michelle was active on this thread, she said that she made a missing person report and that she spoke with the coroner (I think via telephone). I tried looking for a missing person report but I couldn’t find one, maybe they did locate Jeff and Michelle just forgot to let us know.

    Also, a Ancentry search of Jeff Daum, born on July 9th 1956 (I think that was his birthday, the same that Michelle gave) says that he’s currently living and has a active landline.

    I sent a email to the investigator responsible on our guy’s case and asked them if there was any chance that the DNA Doe Project or another genealogy agency could work on his case.

    I also asked them if anything came out of Michelle’s lead, since she said that she passed the tip to LE. She asked if I knew her name (I didn’t refer to her initially) and if there was any contact info. I gave her some details on Jeff and did refer to this thread if she wanted to know more details that Michelle gave.
