    It seems odd that the remains are listed as decomposed when the UID survived a full month after the traffic accident, but perhaps no photograph is available from that period and they are referring to the current remains (especially as a DNA profile is incomplete).

    I couldn't find any other information on whether this UID was in a car, pedestrian, or other type of traffic accident.

    Nicholas Peter Zizzamia's disappearance is mysterious and not necessarily implausible even though he disappeared from Cherry Hill, NJ. Only dental records are available for him so it is unlikely he has been compared with the above UID since that is a manual process from what I understand.

    From Charley Project:
    http://charleyproject.org/cases/z/zizzamia_nicholas.html
    Article from The Inquirer: http://articles.philly.com/2014-06-16/news/50600594_1_35-years-merchantville-pontiac

    Photographs from The Inquirer article:

    http://media.philly.com/images/600*450/20140615_inq_jriordan15-b.JPG

    The article quotes a friend as saying Zizzamia had spoken of suicide and never being found, or even vanishing. The police detective interviewed does not seem to think Zizzamia planning his disappearance is out of the question. There is also a mention of "some gay tendencies" and an overall depression with life and the future.

    In 1995, Zizzamia would be 39 which is within the UID's timeframe. The height and weight are close. In his images, he has dark hair and he is reported to have brown eyes.

    If he wanted to vanish to somewhere more liberal about the gay lifestyle in 1979, perhaps California seemed like a good option? San Francisco, Los Angeles - the state might seem like an escape for a young man unhappy with his university and potential future taking over his father's business?

    I wonder what his parents thought. I do not want to read too much into it, but his father's online obituary not mentioning Zizzamia seems like a poignantly silent gesture - especially as he was the only child of his parents' marriage.

    Per the Case Investigator's update, Nicholas Zizzamia was ruled out based on dentals.
