    It would be nice if we could finally bring Stephen Lankaster-Cox home to his mother. :(

    If the height estimate of the UID is correct he was 13 to 15 inches shorter than Stephen Lankester Cox.

    In the OP, it says "The remains were then sent to the GBI crime lab for forensic testing. Experts determined the victim was between 18 and 40 years old and was between 5-feet-3 and 5-feet-9 inches tall." .. but in the namus link, it has Minimum age 33 years maximum age 42 years ... 18 to 33 for minimum age is a biiiiiiiigggg stretch. I wonder about Justin Gaines? Bartow is a long way away from Gwinnett, but he was stranded at a club and someone may have said "Hey, I'm going that way" and taken him to Bartow ... it's about a 45 minute drive at least.

    I was talking to someone who was a member of the Texas Rangers for 45 years. He travels all over the world training LE for various things, and his specialty is missing/murdered children and the pedophiles who kill them.

    He said he plays a 3 minute video at the start of his seminars of all of these kids...and sometimes he just cant stand it.

    Does anyone know what these skeletal findings mean in terms I might understand?

    Snipped from NamUs profile...

    "ossified thyroid cartilage" Ossified cartilage is cartilage that has become calcified and transformed into bone.

    "congenital non-fusion of 5th lumbar spinous process" The spinous processes are the pointy structures at the rear of each vertebra. In this instance, one of the spinous process didn't fuse to the vertebra (as normally occurs in fetal development).

    "presence of wormian bone (accessory ossicle) at lambda" Human skulls consist of several cranial plates connected together by sutures (i.e., seams). A wormian bone is an additional cranial plate that results from cranial sutures that don't follow the normal pattern. In this instance the extra plate is located at the rear aspect of the crown of the skull (i.e., the "lambda").

    "large incisive foramen" The incisive foramen is an opening in the hard palate just behind the upper front teeth.

    "Fusion of the coccyx to the 5th sacral segment" - a portion of the coccyx (i.e., tailbone) is fused to an adjacent portion of the sacrum (i.e., a structure of the pelvis).

    Thank you CarlK.

    Would you be able to tell by looking at someone that they had these problems? Would they walk with a limp? I am assuming they would but want to make sure...

    TIA

    I'm no expert in this matter, but I don't think that most of those things listed would be known to people who knew that person. But they would seem to me to be symptoms of abnormal development that might be noticeable in other ways. Unless there were additional physical deformities, I doubt that they would be mentioned in a Missing Person description.
