    Praise the heavens for these incredible organizations. Without them, these souls would remain anonymous forever. They deserve the dignity and respect of being given their name back, not to mention justice!

    ETA that I really do think the Doe is James, as mentioned upthread.

    Has anyone found articles about Pillar Point Doe from the 80s?

    Alot of great links/articles about this case here:
    Remembering Our Dead - Pillar Point Doe (26 Nov 1983)
    The source of the updated rendering is: New Forensic Illustration of Pillar Point Doe, San Mateo/Half Moon Bay, CA 1983

    The rendering is good, but I wish the artist had of stuck to the description of the clothing. The description of the turtle neck sounded quite distinctive, and might shake loose someone's memory if they wore it frequently, or even borrowed it from someone.

    Does anyone know how/where to find (if we can) the original police report on this case?

    Quoting myself!
    Here is another reason I am hopeful that James Hires is our Pillar Point Doe.
    James has *hazel* eyes, and so does our Doe. Approx. 2% in the U.S. have hazel eyes.
    On top of the facial shape and other facial markers appearing the same, the eye color is another factor making me feel pretty certain we have given Pillar Point back his name.
    Time will tell.
    James W Hires

    Editing to add that both the Doe and James have fingerprints on file - so this makes me less hopeful. Also, James had a fractured right clavicle and fractured upper left arm. Surely this would have been flagged in PPD's autopsy?
    Sigh.....

    If only there was an existing post mortem photo, it would make it a lot easier to identify or eliminate possible suggestions.
