    NamUs - https://identifyus.org/en/cases/13093

    There is no picture on NamUs, but I feel like there are so many details that could provide insight into his identity, it is surprising that he remains unknown.

    Found October 27, 2014 on the side of the hill at 14th and Sherwood in Omaha.

    White adult male. No info on age, height/weight, post-mortem interval, or COD available.

    DNA submitted - testing not complete. No dentals or fingerprints.

    Physical:
    • Blonde or Strawberry blonde hair, blonde hair on arms.
    • Prior healed fractures to ribs, right fibula (calf bone), and the left side of the jaw. Jaw fracture appears to not have been treated.
    • May have been involved in a prior accident.

    Clothing:
    • Rustler brand blue jeans with black belt
    • Fruit of Loom blue/white checkered
    • White socks
    • Dark colored hoodie and shirt
    • Black "Starter" brand tennis shoes

    Other items found:
    • Two pairs of OTC reading glasses - one black and one silver
    • A key with a red "Guardian Real Estate" key fob
    • Bottle of "Seroquel" pills

    A few details I've gathered in a quick search... Seroquel is used to treat biopolar disorder. Wildhorse is a popular cigarette brand in Nebraska. Guardian Real Estate is a company in Omaha.

    I imagine he was local. He had glasses, medicine, keys... it doesn't seem like he was totally homeless or off the grid or anything. I've found very little coverage of the discovery of his body. It seems crazy to me that no one knows him.

    Here's a map showing where the body was found.

    It doesn't look like a particularly remote area to me, but maybe someone local can weigh in.

    likely estranged from family due to mental illness judging by the rx.

    True! But if he had a real estate key then someone must be missing a tenant, or a neighbor? Assuming the meds are his, he would have a pharmacist and/or a doctor.

    Ronald McCormick

    https://www.findthemissing.org/en/cases/25278/

    RMimg_45879.jpg

    City Bellevue
    State Nebraska

    Missing since June 19, 2014. Ronald McCormick left his friend's home in Bellevue to go dumpster diving. His truck was located several days later near a dumpster in the area of 111 and Mockingbird Dr.

    Local guy. His hair was nearly gray when he disappeared but this photo looks strawberry blond-ish to me. Other photos show way more gray. His truck and the UID were found about 14 miles away from each other.

    I don't think it's Ron. No tattoo or chest scar mentioned in the UID description. Also, Ron's glasses appear to be prescription (they are bifocals), rather than the OTC reading glasses the UID had.

    Good point about the glasses, unless he picked the OTC readers up for somebody while dumpster diving? Shrug.

    I was thinking that tattoos or scars may not be evident after four months (plus no age weight no height, no PM estimate etc).

    Thanks for the feedback!

    Was there not a label on the seroquel?

    It says that the bottle is "unreadable," whatever that means. I can't tell whether he was found with Seroquel and some other unknown med or if the Seroquel bottle was illegible. Perhaps the label on the bottle had worn away. So I guess the pills were still intact enough to visually identify them as Seroquel. Either that or they ran them through some kind of drug-testing procedure.
    Seroquel is used in a variety of mental illnesses (not just bipolar) but I don't know of any recreational usage other than to sleep. People love it in jail, but that's mainly so they can sleep their sentence away (not really for "getting high").

    And I don't understand the lack of details. I figured that if you could identify the hair color (including arm hair) that you would at least have some kind of notion as to the height, weight or how long they've been dead.

    I just thought that it could be a "sample" bottle like they take to doctors offices. But they usually stop bringing those if a generic becomes available. I used to be able to get some meds that way (my mom is a doctor and I work at her office) and they haven't brought any Seroquel for a while. So I thought that would be the case for this guy's timeframe.

    Here's what I found when looking for the location

    1336 Sherwood Ave, Omaha, NE 68110 is right at the corner mentioned, so I put a marker there. You can find it if you search for that address. Or just use the link I posted.

    It looks like he was found on the border between a residential area and an industrial area from the satellite photos. It's also not far from some railroad tracks that go through the industrial area. It's not too far, though on the other side of the industrial area, from the Missouri River and one of its oxbow lakes (Carter Lake).

    I think that he could have possibly been somebody that was a hobo (is that PC?) since he was fairly close to the tracks. There are a good number of our homeless that are homeless/jobless because of mental illness. The Seroquel kind of backs that up with this guy.

    And I could never personally call that area the "Boonies." I don't know if my town's population is even 200, but we're technically a "town." We even have a little city council that we elect (usually via "write-ins"). But I guess I'd consider the park areas (around Carter Lake) to pass for Boondocks.
