    Ok, i'm as stubborn as a mule but i've just emailed the Grayson County Sherifs Office with my "suspicions".
    Cause i can't get this damn "Match"out of my head.

    I mean, the only reason that stopped me from contacting them was the fractures/plates part not matching up. But the "what if his family didn't know about that" part was driving me bat **** crazy.
    So I emailed them with my thoughts and the info (NamUs No. of the John Doe, Straight drive from hometown to place where the John Doe was found etc.) and asked them if they could find out if John Wingler ever did have the fractures/plates that the John Doe has.

    The worst that can happen is that they say he really didn't. But then at least I know i have tried everything.
    So keep your fingers crossed guys.

    Ok they haven'r responded and there are no exclusions mentioned on NamUs.
    I registered so i can see them.
    I have emailed the contactperson from John's case and the contactperson for the John Doe.
    Keeping my fingers crossed

    Hi Frenchie,
    Is there DNA in John's case? If so they most likely put the DNA for the UI person and it really does take months to get the results back, so it may be a hit. Never be afraid to reach out to the detectives in these cases, they will happy to look at what you have found. You may not always hear back, as most are so busy or don't want to engage about a case unless they have to ask you a question, but they are grateful for the "eyes". I can't speak for all of them, but I know how busy our detectives are and most won't reach out because we get so many emails a week about cases. Thank you.

    Hi Skully,
    I don't think they have DNA for John. At least I can't find it mentioned on his NamUs page.
    I emailed the Sheriffs Dept. in July 2018, so i figured they must have thought I was some nutcase ;-) and ignored my email

    No, they don't think you are a nutcase. I am sure they got it and will or are looking into it. If John has a sister, or brother they can put DNA into CODIS. All they have to do is go to local LE and tell them they want to submit DNA for the missing person for NAMUS.
