    The DNA Doe Project website has him listed as their latest pending case. Their first from Colorado if I'm not mistaken.

    I wonder if he was a conspiracy theorist/pseudo-military survivalist/doomsday prepper. He looks like a nerd (not a judgment) but he's well armed with likely illegally obtained weapons. He could have gotten the weapons illegally because he "didn't want the government tracking him" or a similar mindset. I've known a few guys like that. I think someone with that many weapons in the outdoors has to be paranoid.

    MARBLE ARVIDSON is missng from Vermont since 2012. Although he is younger than they suggest the deceased was, he fits physically. Hair color and same glasses style.
    Marble was a hiker in VT. and he may have known somebody who moved to Colorado to work at one of numerous ski resorts in the area.
    Marble would cut himself so the suicide angle may fit. The fatal shot could have been an accident.
    I reported it to VT today but I posted here in case somebody knew anything about this case. I'll cross post in Marble Arv
    idson forum as well.

    On the DDP Facebook page there is an explanation of who they are and what they do. In there amidst the text is a link to their spreadsheet of case matches which they update every 2 weeks

    There is an update on this case. He has primarily Scandinavian heritage:
    Authorities revamp efforts to identify Summit County John Doe in 2016 cold case

    "Based on results, Koski said, the man might have been a recent immigrant and of Scandinavian descent, both of which create problems. Researchers have identified a few potential matches, but they’re too distant to make an easy ancestral connection.

    “In that gene pool, as far as looking at databases here in the United States, it can be difficult to draw from,” Koski said. “We have probably fourth cousin matches. But let’s say we can get their ancestors built a couple generations back, when we get to the turn of the century, when a lot of families immigrated here, a lot of the names will change. If they were keeping the naming patterns from Norway and Sweden and other Scandinavian countries, it’s very difficult to follow.

    “If you have a name like Johnson, that’s literally John’s son and his daughter is John’s daughter. And the next generation down doesn’t follow that same convention. So John’s son becomes something else, he’s Johnson and his child would be something like Sven Johnson. Now his son would be Svenson. It’s very hard to find connections.”

    Peter Larsson from Sweden
    DOB october 12, 1967
    Missing since october 13, 2008
    View Yellow Notices

    Foto is from the link above.

    Apparently he had run into some bad company and a couple a weeks before his disappearence another male from the same social circle disapperared.
    Police suspect both men have been kidnapped and killed according to this article:
    Peter Larsson försvann för tio år sedan – nu tar Missing People upp sökandet

    However, perhaps he actually fled because he knew someone might hurt him.

    When I first read the article, may be because English is not my native, I thought that the phrase "the man might have been a recent immigrant and of Scandinavian descent" refers that he was actually an immigrant himself, but re-reading it I now think that he was American with Scandinavian ancestry. So, the biggest doubt the DDP team has is wether his family americanized their name. In the past Scandinavians had the tradition to have father's name instead of a family name, I think in our days only Iceland still keeps this tradition. Also I believe that some Scandinavian family names can sound very English (for example, Anderson or Nilson, they also have Johnson but they say Johanson).

    Authorities revamp efforts to identify Summit County John Doe in 2016 cold case
    ''FRISCO — Scientists and researchers are working to identify the body of a man found in the backcountry near Breckenridge in 2016.

    Officials are hopeful that new efforts in the still-developing field of forensic genetic genealogy could be the key to identifying the individual, a process composed of advanced DNA analysis paired with detailed investigations of publicly available genealogical databases.

    Spearheading the effort is the DNA Doe Project, a recently founded California nonprofit specializing in cold case identifications of John and Jane Does. The project made headlines just last week after identifying a man found dead in Park County almost 50 years ago, but the group is also investigating a more local case. And researchers say it’s a challenge.

    “He’s a tough one,” said Missy Koski, team leader with the DNA Doe Project. “I think eventually we will be able to get somewhere. But we definitely need some closer matches or some breakthrough in putting together some family trees. He’s giving us a run for our money.”

    Mr. Sipple was still alive in 2012 when the Summit county man died.

    I lived and worked at Copper Mountain for several years but left 2014. I have been thinking back to people I meet there and the figure does resemble my boss but the nose is wrong and he didn't smoke or at least he didn't when I knew him. As far as I know he is still employed at Copper Mountain or was when I left in 2014.

    Below is another photo of the figure of the unknown man.
