The composite sketch seems a better likeness than the clay rendition. Perhaps you should submit it. I don't know how to see if there are any rule outs anywhere to determine if Garnett John Doe is on this Ralph's list.
I'm also wondering about her. Do we even know her real name? If she was involved with drugs, I imagine she was arrested sometimes... But The Ledger says they uses alias for every person mentioned on the articles (except Ralph Miller).Interesting case... does anybody know whatever became of the witch?
I'm reading all the post of The Witch of Lakeland (I'm shocked, BTW) and a rumor indicated that they disposed of Ralph's body in Saddle Creek; I checked on Google and there are many alligators in that area... They feel confortable in Lakeland so I don't think they travelled so far to dispose of a body; they didn't do it with Caleb McDowell, John Arnsdorff or James Wagner.
The National Missing and Unidentified Persons System (NamUs)
On 10/2/70, the victim’s mother reported that she last saw the victim in his bed as she left for work on 09/19/70. They lived on Rt. 3, in Lakeland, FL.
Interesting if this is a match. That means he would have been alive for approx 3 years before dying which is plausible. UID hasn't been ruled out. Has this been submitted as a possible match?Just now coming across Ralph’s thread. I haven’t gone down the rabbit hole yet that is the witch, I’m working on it. But after seeing Ralph’s thread, I thought it had some similarities to this UID from Okaloosa, Fl.
