    This makes sense. Are there any group pictures of employees of that facility? Set the Purdue students to comparing images! As a break from their careful checking of Yonkers high school yearbooks.

    Ms. Carzon have any relatives? A male relative who would take on Paul's name?

    Almost as if you landed in a spy novel -- a man who leaves no impression on other people.

    CyresAres, what do you hear from Dandridge, Kentucky & the man with 20 IDs?

    JMHO YMMV

    Who else was at that wedding besides the best man? And he doesn’t remember job, Paul, wedding, etc?

    It is possible. I spoke with several of the auction companies and they stated so dealership would pay to have a vehicle shipped from state to another... at least not a Geo Metro hatchback!

    This is possible, as is about any scenario we can imagine. I am making every effort to follow everything we think as we go... but am only one person.

    He has a sad expression in all the photos imo. Is it possible he committed suicide? If he did and the car was found would it still be repossessed in such a scenario?

    I noticed that sad expression too. Maybe changing his identity wasn’t by choice.

    I am not sure. He told his wife one night he could “disappear anytime he wanted” which, when we couple with known false identity, leads me to believe that scenario is unlikely... yet plausible.

    If he was thinking ahead about changing identities again, the local cemetary in Indiana might give some possibilities. Just out of curiosity I browsed the Crown View Cemetery (Sheridan) using find-a-grave and found a Stephen Alexander who died as an infant in 1950.

    Yes, I noticed it too! Even when he was feeding cake to his bride in the one photo.

    The detective thinks it’s quite a possibility that “Paul” was working/living under his intelligence level. If that’s the case possibility chose his wife as he saw someone who wouldn’t ask too many questions. I believe that someone who is using a false identity and hiding would not like photographs taken and likely would look unhappy.

    Maybe he was in the Federal Witness Protection Program and started a new Identity on his own.

    But these auto auctions are regional. So the car could have traveled some distance to get to the auction facility. Many dealers may not ship a car far, but they will send teams of drivers or a transport truck to bring back several cars at once.

    I wonder if the car was abandoned somewhere before it was repossessed? I doubt running the plates or the VIN on it for anything that long ago would turn up much.

    VIN has been run... yielded nothing but owners since Paul owned it.

    It is possible! I have not been able to verify if there is the existence of a master list of people who have been in protection.

    That is true. Nevertheless I would venture that he felt safe enough in his new environment that he decided to get married, an event that is always captured in film. He took that chance.

    Also, he could not have foreseen the Internet, of course, and that his face would end up on it for the whole world to study! Those years, photos would likely only be shared with family and friends.

    @CyresAres1 is it possible to have an age progression done?

    Interesting! I guess I assumed you would be given that master list. I hope you can get your hands on it :)

    Yes, and another possibility would be hiding from his ex wife whether she is actually an ex or not lol. I wonder if he has any kids.

    If he had a previous family wouldn't they have reported him missing?

    ETA: unless he was divorced and estranged from them.

    Hard to say really. Maybe they did and he was under another name/different appearance or maybe there was some reason they didn't. It's a mystery!
