    This guy just showed up in NamUs. He apparently jumped from the San Francisco Golden Gate Bridge, although nobody witnessed the jump.

    NamUs UP Case Number: 7083
    ME/C Case Number: 06259
    Marin County, California
    17 to 25 Year Old White Male

    He sure bears a strong resemblance to Marvin Ardon.

    Marvin Arture Ardon

    [​IMG]__[​IMG]

    • Height: 5'8" - Match
    • Weight: 170 - 10 lbs less than UID.
    • DLC: 14-Nov-2006 - 28 days before UID found.
    • Hairline: - Both have same hairline irregularity at the center of the forehead
    • Ethnicity: - Listed as Caucasian - Appears Hispanic and has Hispanic surname. UID also listed as Caucasian, but may be part Hispanic or Asian.
    • Circumstances: - Ardon was facing a rape charge, and may have staged his disappearance and fled to California. He would have a strong motive for suicide.

    Inconsistencies:
    NamUs lists the UID's eyes as blue, while Ardon's eyes are brown. But I wonder if this is correct. How many Asians or Hispanics have blue eyes?

    Also, he was wearing sweatpants with a Galileo Lions logo. Galileo High School (whose sports teams are called the Lions) is a San Francisco area school. This would be inconsistent with his being from Alabama.

    Facial Blemishes shown on UID not apparent in Ardon's Photo.

    I agree this looks good. There's even some kind of California connection. Good find! Are you going to submit it?

    Joseph Hany Booth-Metwally was an athlete at Galileo High School but he was last seen December 14, 2006, two days after the UID was found. I wonder if the UID's date of discovery could possibly be incorrect.

    http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/b/booth-metwally_joseph.html
    http://dojapp.doj.ca.gov/missing/detail.asp?FCN=4670634900048
    http://www.josephbooth-metwally.info/

    Booth-Metwally was a wrestler and a member of the class of 2007. His weight is given at 150 while the UID's was an estimated 170. Don't wrestlers sometimes gain or lose pounds to move up or down a weight class, though?

    He is one inch shorter than the UID at 5'7" but again, the UID's height is listed as an estimate. The eye color is not a match, blue vs. brown, and Booth-Metwally is described as African-American and of Egyptian descent, while the UID is thought to be Asian and Hispanic. Booth-Metwally has an appendectomy scar not noted on the UID.

    Thanks, tatertot. I will e-mail this article to Meaghan at Charley Project so that she can remove Ardon from her site.

    Interesting that the article says that the rape case "happened in October of 2007", but Charley indicates that he has been missing since 14-Nov-2006. It seems that one of these must be wrong.

    Marvin Ardon was acquitted in his trial.

    He is still missing according to Charley Project. It's not been updated since 2007. (I only hope that a huge number of other people are also there only because their pages have not been updated since they were found safe.)

    John Doe has only one ruleout, Zebb Quinn.

    Joseph Booth-Metwally's Namus page says he has had DNA tests done.
    Sample submitted - Tests complete
    No dental charts.

    The UID has nuclear DNA available.
