I have not discounted William as a possible match and I am still looking into the case very actively. I am meeting with my Detective from the State Police here in Indiana next week and we will be putting more info into the computer (NCIC/NAMUS) for Brad. I will have him run William again and see what we come up with....
I will keep you posted as soon as there is anything near a match. Thanks for keeping in touch.
Any updates? I have just found this thread and find it interesting as I'm from Indiana.
I was trying to find a match for Adam Doe (the African American UID) and three things struck me - 1. the face in the drawing is very enlongated and does not look that natural to me. I'm not questioning the skills of the person doing the sketches but it just looks "off" to me. 2. the age might be off considerably. Brad Doe (the white UID) was listed as 18-28 so I wonder why they are limiting Adam to a much shorter age range. just because Eyler said he looked that age? 3. even using very generous search criteria, I keep coming up with only one possible match at Namus and that's Ronald K. Ross, missing from NC in Sept 1978 at age 22:
there were shockingly few African American males listed and to give you some idea of how generous my search criteria were I was looking for any AA male between the ages of 12-30, between 5'5" and 6'2" between 165 and 195 pounds, lka 10/31/1983. I even went slightly past the date of the discovery of the body and still next to nothing.
ONE person matched and that was Ross.
Read More:... As of early January, McCord said, the National Missing and Unidentified Persons System showed 46 possible matches for Brad. But as he and Andrews went through them, certain details -- such as time frame -- didn't fit.
But two "are interesting," McCord said. He declined to elaborate, should information not work out.
The biggest challenge they face is time. Much of the original evidence, including clothing, is no longer available. And some of the original investigators have died.
Andrews urges anyone with information, regardless of how big or small, to call.

Is serial killer's unidentified victim from Venice?
BY BETH HUNDSDORFER - News-Democrat
Scott McCord was just elected as the coroner of Newton County, Ind., in 2009 when he found two boxes in his office labeled "Victim 3" and "Victim 4."
McCord lifted the lid of the shopworn bankers' boxes and couldn't believe what he saw.
"Sure enough, it was bones," McCord said. "It startled the hell out of me, then it made me so mad to have them in old tattered bankers' boxes. It upset me that someone would be so cold as to do this to someone.".....
