    With the Skeletal Findings, he may have been a boxer of some sort?

    I don't read, write or speak Polish, but this is the Chicago Polish paper. (Also the oldest polish paper in the country).
    I wonder if there was ever a news article about this john doe in this paper. Anyone know how to search it? Anyone able to make contact with the paper to see if they will run an article in Polish about this john doe?

    If he was undocumented perhaps someone would not list him as missing.

    Maybe this is a silly question/observation but...

    I'm a bit interested in these shoes. It lists them as a size 13... Were his remains consistent with this? I'm curious because his approx. height is listed as 5ft 5" .. in my lifetime, I've not seen many men of that stature with that large of a shoe size. Call me an oddball if you like, but I thought that I would throw that out there.

    It could be if he was homeless, he was wearing shoes too large for his feet.

    That Doe link puts him at 75", or 6'3". That's more in line with a size 13 shoe!

    Found a link to a Poland missing persons site which allows for a search for persons missing abroad. Still exploring the site.
    Possible:

    http://en.zaginieni.pl/missing-and-unidentified-people-database?type=2&imie=&nazwisko=&plec=M&wzrostOd=&wzrostDo=&kolorOczu=&wiek=&wiekOd=&wiekDo=&ostMiejsce=&woj=%28poza+granicami+Polski%29&x=51&y=26&Itemid=2&option=com_content&view=article&id=2&pageNumber=4&id_o=03731393030323

    I see some resemblence on the above. Dates are a bit off - 5 years. The MP has more hair, but whose to say how much hair loss may occur in 5 years. Ht within 3" ( based on cm to inches converter). The MP also appears to possibly have a similiar skull fusion on the top of the head in comparsion to the recon.


    Link to main page:

    http://en.zaginieni.pl/missing-and-unidentified-people-database


    There is also an address at the above link to email if one is trying to identify someone. I have sent an email to the address at the link with this UID's NamUs and DoeNetwork links and necessary information requested by the site.

    There are two locations for Joe and Franks Famous Homemade Sausage. One is in Chicago and the other is Oak Lawn, IL. Chicago is about an hours drive north..depending on traffic. And Oak Lawn is about 20 minutes northwest. Oak Lawn has a rather large polish community.

    I live very close to where this body was found and this isn't the first body to be found in this forest preserve. I do think the location is really odd but it didn't surprise me.

    Sorry to quote myself. I have received a reply email from the above organization/site indicating they do have a possible match, initials PK (I did not ask for permission to share the mans name so I will just add the initials) and they are working with both family and LE to determine if there is a match.

    I'm glad I was able to find the site, that this organization in Poland was able to find a possible match and that LE/ME in Will County is now aware of this missing persons site in Poland. I don't believe they (LE/ME) would have been aware of them without a group of volunteers such as ourselves being able to research this info and pass along.

    Even if it is not a match at least this organization in Poland is aware of this UID.

    I think we will eventually find more. Perhaps I should email the above linked organization and ask if she knows of any additional European MP sites, similiar to hers, she can send me links to as she has time. I had imamaze add the one from Poland to the WS resource center, so if we found more I could request she add them there.... I think I will go ahead and send out that email request letting her know of the resource center here at WS where we could add them. I will do that shortly.

    CanManEh if you look at the information in the opening post the medical examiner was able to determine the UID's dental work is consistent with Eastern European dentistry. They didn't just decide he was possibly from Poland based on the lighter.

    Also, the NamUs link currently has 18 or so rule outs so they are not excluding possible matches based on place of birth or state of resident. The rule out list includes mp's from all over.

    I do agree with you on the perplexity of why UID's with tat's remain unidentified.

    Regardless of where he is from, I pray he is identified because every person, regardless of circumstances, deserves to be id'd.

    No, just that the dental work found on the UID is consistent with that which is done and practised in Eastern Europe just as the info on doenet stated. I'm not an expert but I would assume those who examined this UID would be familiar with dental work done within the US and outside of the US as it is something we'd seen listed as an identifier for various UID's.
