    David Allen Dunaway's case is a bit odd in that according to his Doe Network profile, he was paranoid on drugs and carrying a shotgun in a brown paper bag when he vanished from Houston, Texas.

    There is a huge gap in timeline of 17 years between his disappearance and the UID being located near a transient camp in Jacksonville, Florida. Age-wise, he would have been 46/47 which is a year or two higher than the UID's estimated age range. I want to include him here, though, because he:

    • Did have a plate in his jaw like the UID
    • Had a broken nose whereas the UID has healed nasal fractures
    • May have healed broken ribs whereas the UID appears to have a healing broken rib
    • Bad teeth whereas the UID seems to have quite a few dental issues going on
    • Was estimated to be 6' tall. The estimated height range for the UID is pretty wide from 5' to 6'.
    Also, as a drywaller, would he be prone to the types of hand injuries described on the UID? I'm not familiar enough with the trade to know.

    Dunaway was last seen in Houston, Texas on May 10, 1981. He was paranoid on drugs and was carrying a sawed off shotgun in a brown paper bag.

    He left behind a wife and two sons.

    It is out of character for him to leave without saying something to his family. He worked as a drywall contractor.

    The family has tried to file missing person's report twice in Harris County.

    David was my uncle and I gave all of the info that you see. I have reason to believe he was murdered in 1981. I doubt that he ended up in Florida.

    The decedent has two ruleouts:

    Clyde Ellis, Jr. 1956 Mississippi
    William Moldt 1957 Florida

    The decedent's updated Doenet page, with a sketch: http://www.doenetwork.org/cases/3031umfl.html

    David Dunaway's Namus page is returning a permission error. Do you know why that might be?

    I believe you that it's not him, but I want to point out that the decedent's height is listed as a range from 5'6" to 6'1", so it's not much of a guideline for any future matches.

    We don't seem to have a thread for Dunaway. Would you like us to start one?
