    Thank you so much! He was such a beautiful person.

    I believe his family has come to terms with the most likely scenario that he drowned in a nearby body of water the night of his disappearance. However, someone did say he called to tell them he was leaving and wouldnt say where he was going. So its possible he left to avoid the draft or impending charges for theft (i think it came out later that he had some theft charges brought against him that his family didnt know about). But based on what we know about him i cant imagine he would have cut off all ties with his family so i do suspect something bad befell him.

    Forgot to add that it is believed if he did disappear on purpose he would have been headed to Canada

    I posted this in the UID thread but I thought I would post it here too. I think this is a possibility but the thing that does throw me off a bit is the rod in the femur... But still, worth a look. If William was going to Montreal he very well may have been going through NH.

    Here is another one that I have been thinking about. The stats are slightly off however.

    This UID is my "best bet" for lack of better words. The reconstruction really reminds me of William and the stats aren't too far off.

    Yeah this is one of the cases I always though could be William. Should I submit it?

    Weight is a bit high but height and timeline are solid. Really dont want this to be him though based on cause of death. Also William deserves a way more handsome reconstruction :)

    I agree, the reconstruction doesn't look all too good. I will submit him tomorrow and let you all know what the response is!

    I think it's absolutely worth submitting. I'm a bit suspicious because if one were to be going to Canada to avoid the draft and lives in Minnesota why go via NH? Maybe to throw people off? Do the less obvious?

    I'm not very familiar with the US and Canada, but I figured if he was on his way to a specific place in Canada, for example Montréal or Ottowa, he may have ben roughly on that path. Correct me if I'm wrong but wasn't Montréal one of the cities that many americans ran to to avoid the draft because it was safer or something? Again, I'm not too familiar with it but anything could have drawn him that way.

    has anyone considered William to be Delafield John Doe? Cleft chin/dimpled chin; hazel eyes; right height; and the whole thing with the theft charges against William; maybe that's why Delafield/William took off-he knew he had those charges and he dodged the draft.

    Interesting, wonder if William had an upper dental plate?

    My dad went missing almost the same exact time as your brother. So I can definitely relate to your frustration and sense of loss. I'll do hope you guys get some solid leads and answers one day.
