    I know you are very serious, but looking at the 70's fashion it seems mismatched to me all the time. Especially if they name it "color-coordinated" LOL I guess in the future they have to laugh at our clothing too, seeing it back from the 2050's. Some 70's examples.

    From the Facebook page Volusia County John Doe 1972 Florida

    I think this recon might be one of the best out there. It's made by Joe Mullins. I think he is really a talented artist.

    What an excellent job. 3-D sure gives more expression and dimension to his face.

    I know it’s very far from the original sketch which to me made him look like he had a receding hairline .

    I also wonder if his sketch looked different he would of been identified by now ?

    I wonder if they ever had any postmortems?

    Still thinking of you, Doe. Hope you can regain your name soon, and finally see justice in any form applicable. You deserved better.

    I saw a Cold Case File episode on serial killer John Rodney Macrae. He was just released from prison in Feb 1972 in Michigan. He eventually moved to Florida in 1976 and is believed to have killed several boys while there. After a over 20 year stay in prison could he have vacationed briefly in Florida? This doe fits his victim's age range, profile, and also stabbing is consistent with his known killings. He particularly looks similar to Kip Hess (missing 1979 FL) and Randy Laufer (missing 1987 MI; found deceased 1997).

    He was freed Feb. 2, 1972. McRae had an exemplary record in prison and was thought unlikely to be the menace he had been as a teenager. At the time, the Houseys were unaware he was let out.

    Three years later, McRae -- now with a wife and son, Martin -- finished parole and moved to Florida where he became a prison guard. By some accounts, he hid his record; others maintain he was hired under a Florida program to employ rehabilitated ex-cons. He later transferred to a youthful offenders facility in Brevard County on the Atlantic coast.

    I would love to know if he took any trips to Florida in Nov 1972. The job he got at the youth facility was in Brevard county. Brevard county is not to far from where the bike that was found with the kid was stolen from.
