    This is my first time starting a thread and I'm not even sure if this is the right forum for it or if I'm formatting it correctly, but I thought this man deserved a thread and I couldn't find one for him.

    There is a thread for Ray Acklin in the Located forum
    Found Deceased IL - Ray J. Acklin, 43, Chicago, 25 April 2008 - Websleuths Crime Sleuthing Community

    but I wanted to post him here because the case shows that you cannot always rule out matches just because they seem unlikely based on some data.

    The UID details are available in https://identifyus.org/cases/8353 but probably not for long.
    They were looking for
    Estimated age Adult - Pre 50
    Minimum age 35 years
    Maximum age 55 years
    Race Unsure
    Ethnicity
    Sex Male
    Weight (pounds) , Cannot Estimate
    Height (inches) 65, Estimated
    Person may be Asian, Native American, or Hispanic

    They got age and height right but the race might have lead searchers astray.

    He was identified by his personal effects and DNA.

    Rest in peace, Ray.

    Thank you. Looking at the picture compared to the drawing, I would have never made the match. Reminds me that the drawings need to be taken with a grain of salt.
