I have submitted this John Doe because I believe there is a strong chance for a potential match.

  • Monte went missing September 9th. John Doe was found 5 days later on September 14th.
  • Monte was last seen wearing a blue t-shirt, tan pants, white air force ones, and had a white nike bag, John Doe was found wearing a blue t-shirt, and khaki pants.
  • John Doe and Monte both weighed 160 lbs. Height is off by 2 inches.

I think this John Doe really needs to be ruled out. This Doe was entered into NamUs in September of 2014, and if he has been in the system this whole time, this will be a failing of LE to have not caught this sooner.
I submitted this tip to Law Enforcement and also the NamUs representative. I hope this results either in a confirmation or an exclusion.
I actually called the Detroit police department personally because I felt like it couldn’t possibly be that obvious. They took my tip though. I also emailed the police chief. Why did it take so long I’m just sad.
I feel sad to know that he’s been there the entire time. Very sad.
It is very sad, I feel for his loved ones.. Sometimes it takes the right pair of eyes to put two and two together, which is why I appreciate the dedication of so many sleuths who take the time to search for and submit matches. You brought answers to this family after so many years, this is phenomenal. May he rest in peace.
<modsnip - qutoed post was removed> his NamUs has been removed is usually enough for the mods to add the “Presumed located” tag. Maybe there will be an obituary in the future and it can be change to “Found deceased”.

I don't know if I can post it here, but I found a Facebook post from one of Monte's relatives confirming he passed away. RIP, a shame it took so long for two and two to be put together here
