    I can't seem to find a thread for this possibly transgender/gender variant doe from Atlanta, GA. If there is one, I'll ask a mod to merge the threads.

    I made a quick reconstruction as well because the PM photo seems a bit uncomplimentary.

    The case lists the body as found in 2017 but Circumstances notes say 2019. Since the Namus case was created in October 2019, either date could apply... may want to submit a request for clarification.

    That's odd, I didn't even notice. I'll send a note to ME.

    Well the name doesn’t match up but stats are close if the deceased was found in 2019 instead of 2017. Cader went missing in 2018 and could have had time to gain some weight. I don’t know how old the photo is so I also don’t know if the receding hairline would be plausible or not. The nose seems similar, even the bridge, I think. Slowly making my way through Facebook feeds so I’m not all the way to 2017 yet. Wanted to share here so I wouldn’t forget.

    I found some articles about the burglary attempt in which the decedent was shot. It took place in 2017.

    Police: DeKalb County homeowner shoots, kills intruder

    DeKalb County Police said the man, who was wearing a wig and arched eyebrows, broke into a house on Beechwood Forest Drive just outside of Lithonia. The homeowner shot the man in the stomach after he continued to walk towards him in a basement, according to investigators.


    Burglar wearing woman's wig gets warning from armed homeowner. Burglar doesn't listen.

    The burglar is described as a dark-skinned black man, 5-foot-6 to 5-foot-8, weighing 180 pounds, WAGA said, adding that Robertson said he was wearing a burgundy shirt and shorts.

    Residents told the station they've seen a man in the area who dresses like a woman and rides a bicycle but don't know the person's name.

    Thanks for sharing this one! I'm gonna take a look and see what pops up for GA missing people of any gender; I have a feeling this individual was around mid-late 20's early 30's at time of death.

    Welcome to Websleuths! And thank you for posting this thread. You did it pretty perfectly!

    @KaylaraOwl I posted this case in the TDTF general discussion thread, but wanted to tag you just in case. :)

    One thing, this body was found July 24, 2017 rather than 2019. I’ll alert a moderator so that the thread title can be changed.

    So Georgia's MP databases are kind of a mess, but I'm still sifting through. Nothing that even remotely looks similar on GBI website or NamUs nationwide with those vitals (searched all genders).

    I wonder if APD put the Doe's prints into CODIS? That seems like it could possibly yield us an answer.

    I agree, a proper sketch recon would be nice in this case.

    I found one missing 14 year old named Justin. He disappeared from Louisiana in 2002. It’d be nice to have additional details about his disappearance though and of course a better photo for comparison.
