He does a bit. I always keep coming back to this case, hoping they will solve it. Glad this thread is still active. Never did find what I was looking for though.

Can someone make up a flyer with the information we think we know, re Steve/Stephen Hicks/Hix/Hecks with the accident date, plus the Hix, WV references?

Much appreciated. Thank you in advance!

I wonder if the drunk driver was convicted of manslaughter after the victims death?

I tend to think one of the following scenarios are possible :

* He was saying his name was Steve and was referring to Hix , WV , as a previous poster mentioned , there is indeed a Hix ( McDowell County) WV and a Hix ( Summers County ) WV

* He was saying his name was Steve Hicks as it is a common name in WV

* OR Could he have been saying his name was Steve Vicks or Steve Vix , Steve Vex , Steve Hex , Steve Hix, Steve Ickes ? Under duress and with an accent if you say any of those names mashed together , it could be hard to determine one from another . I live in PA very close to the WV border and we tend to talk fast , shorten words and mash them together without much enunciation. Plus this man had just suffered a massive injury.
For example , we would never say " I'm going to go over there". We would say " ima go overdare" .

This is definitely solvable and such a tragedy .

I think it's possible that he told them his real name and they misheard it.

Such a sad case, and it's a shame he has not been identified. I wonder if Steve Hicks was his name at all? If it was, could it originally be Stephen? Other surnames that sound similar Higgs, Nick's...just so many.
I wonder if he was speaking clearly at the time, would be really interesting to know.

Wow! Did you submit the information? Please let us know if you get a response from LE that they received and are looking into your suggestion.

I can't get any help from LE. It's like they don't want yo solve cold cases. Well at the ones I've had to message. I've attached a sise by side of MP and UID. 4 months between missing, date and UID was hit.

He had a noticeable large surgical scar on his abdomen and one in the face.

According to Doe Network, this UID did not have identifying scars, though.

However since Daniel Gerard Ryan has dental records (3350DMNY - Daniel Gerard Ryan), they could probably use those to rule him out (or in?), if they haven't already.

Daniel Gerard Ryan sister dose not think it's him. I had submitted prior to that. A person in my Facebook group submitted another candidate. I'll post a screen shot of her post.

I've suggested and submitted that one before. I think I still have an old post earlier in this thread. I agree the likeness is very strong.
