    The Namus page has pictures of all of his tattoos and also his clothing. His white T Shirt is blood soaked at the top and full of maggots. Don't look at them if you can't stomach the sight. His other clothes look clean. So I'm guessing shot in the head or face? I wonder whether this was classified as a murder or suicide?

    If this guy has a DuPage t-shirt on and was found in the city of Chicago, I’m guessing he has to be local to Chicagoland. He was found in a gentrifying neighborhood that was originally Chicago’s big Puerto Rican hamlet. Still lots of Hispanic and Puerto Rican people there. I probably wouldn’t go walking around Humboldt Park with a swastika tattoo (I also would NEVER get a swastika tattoo, but putting myself in the UID’s shoes). Could he have gotten the swastika tattoo in prison? If so, his fingerprints would definitely be in the national database, yes?

    I wonder about COD. Blood on the shirt in an abandoned building suggests murder or suicide.

    This one can’t be hard to identify. Nathan is probably his child, Emily is maybe a deceased relative? How has no one claimed this guy with so many identifying tattoos? “Nathan” looks pretty fresh so even if he alienated family through an addiction or mental illness etc, he must have a youngish child and probably other family out there. I normally wouldn’t feel a lot of empathy for a guy with a swastika tattoo, but this is my old neighborhood and this guy seems very identifiable.

    Sorry so scattered, my horse kicked me in the face at an event yesterday and I’m recovering but not 100%!

    Edited COD part because of new info.

    Could “Emily Faith” be the first and middle name of a deceased person? Or “Faith Emily”.

    Tattoo- (midline over sternum) black and red ink drawing of shield divided in quarters with letter "A", two lightening bolts, swastika, letter "B".

    This is an Aryan Brotherhood tattoo, and his joker tats make me think he has a prison record. He was found in a building in the middle of the Vice Lords gang zone on the West Side near Humbolt Park. I am not suggesting this is gang related, more that he was a fish out of water. The Heroin Highway is just north of there so this may very well be a drug overdose.

    Just saw your post Vail... I completely agree this might just be an OD. Kind of strange though, that this Aryan Brotherhood tat doesn't seem to come with a state or location.

    I admit I am not as familiar with AB as I am with other gang types, but my guess is he got it in prison and from what I've researched, the shield type may be a disconnected AB sect versus the main one (like Texas AB or Alabama AB) - it looks like there are several of them that use this quad shield in various styles without necessarily adding the state or chapter. No matter what, he seems to have associates and family - someone has to report him missing eventually.

    I'm curious about the lighter skin around the tattooed areas. Did he suffer from vitiligo or is this a naturally occurring process in decomp? TIA

    If he did prison time, then they should have his DNA on file. Makes me wonder if he did time before they implemented taking samples?

    Decomposition becomes darker. And in his case, he was every color due to decomposition.

    Is it possible that this guy was a member of a motorcycle club?

    I know that there used to be an MC at Division near Hamlin (back in the day) and I think maybe there's a new MC at Chicago and Hamlin, which is about 200 feet from the building where he was found.

    I assumed it was a chemical agent to preserve or clarify the ink.

    I thought about that, but then I'd expect some OMG or similar tats. He was dressed pretty "soft" for a motorcycle guy - I think any gang activity was probably earlier in his life and maybe not something he associates with now. I think their gang unit will have to ask around and find someone that saw him to get a clue as to why he came to be there.

    Given the sheer number of tattoos, I think that would be represented on his body somewhere.

    I was also thinking OD, but there appears to be blood on his shirt in the NAMUS photos.

    If he got that shirt from the event instead of second-hand, this would be the place to start: Care Net 5K Run/Walk for Life

    The date of the 2018 walk is listed as after he was discovered, so we should be looking for results from previous years.

    Do you think he was found with his pockets turned out, or that was done before the photos taken? Also what looks like a dirty shoe print on the calf of the pant leg.

    You're right about the blood @azure - It wasn't obvious to me until I enlarged the photo of the back of the shirt where it is un-mistakenly red.

    If he was murdered, it increases the chances there is someone that is missing him.

    that much blood from the face/head though? its possible but I feel like drug deal gone bad. Addicts will buy from any dealer, race be damned.

    they've been taking samples since the 90's, and he is supposedly 25-40.

    I think drugs are involved as well.

    I did some checking on the Carenet walk and it seems to be mainly a Kentucky thing. Getting a flyer with his info through the prisons in the midwest might help if they don't already do that routinely. I wonder how long before they release any more info if any.
