    Since his NamUs says DNA and dental are not currently available, an identification can't be made until DNA or dental is tracked down by LE. That might take a loooonnnnggg time--if it's even possible to find. And he might not get prioritized on looks alone.

    I've finally read all the posts in this thread. It took hours!

    Since I'm new to this, I need someone to give me a task to do. I know nooks and crannies all over Oregon, especially for the period we're looking at. Has someone searched the local missing persons databases for that state for the period in question? Then post anyone I find who's not already on our "Current Relevant Missing list"? I can get going on that if it needs doing.

    Or else, give me another task!

    Yes, only the band remained. That's what I was trying to say. Eh, I had Frye harness Boots in the 70's - even in Boston they were cool.

    But why would the other pair of underwear not deteriorate to just a waistband too? I'm assuming they were both exposed to the same elements. Unless one pair was buried and the other pair was exposed to the elements. If they both were exposed to the elements, my guess one pair of underwear was eaten sans its waistband.

    I thought the other pair, the Hanes, were inside the blanket with the pants?

    ETA: Fabrics exposed also get ravaged by meeces and birds for nesting.

    ETA 2: I was wrong, the information we have does not say the Hanes were with the pants inside the blanket.

    He would have only been 23 in 1992. Our guy was 35 to 50. The detectives will go outside the age range by a few years, but a 12 year difference is significant.

    btw, welcome to the thread! Glad to have you on board here!

    Billy's sister has posted on this forum under his missing person thread, and it sounds like the family strongly suspects that the step-father killed Billy the day he went missing.

    RickshawFan, after reading yours and Miss Muffet's posts concerning meth and mentioning 1984, the CA speed freak killers came to mind.
    Wesley Shermantine and Loren Herzog, were dubbed the "Speed Freak Killers" after a 15-year methamphetamine drug-induced killing spree that began in 1984 and ended in 1999.

    Ironically Wellington, NV would have been within their geographical area of operation and during the years that the killers were active, and they had no victim profile or preference. The CA SF killers were hunters and would kill just for the hell of it..
    There is a WS thread on the CA SF killers http://www.websleuths.com/forums/sh...rmantine-talks-Herzog-commits-suicide)/page10.

    I am posting this link because I cant find a missing report on him or stats the only thing I know he is wanted and would be 82 ,making him 51 or 52 at the time the victims was found.

    The link mentions his name relating to the case he is a suspect in but his name does not come up as a missing person.


    Henry lee Harbison

    This link has photos of him on the bottom and in one photo you can see a red tint ,but those 70's photo's add red to objects over time it seems.

    My thoughts on the underwear differences - the pair suspected to be on the victim when he died was nothing but waistband. The pair that was presumably extra and not on a decomposing body were not themselves decomposed as bad.

    My suspicion is that items located on a decomposing body will get exposed to fluids and other decomposing biological matter which would deteriorate more quickly due to all of the bacteria, insects, molds, etc that happily "eat" decomposing biological matter, whereas a pair of underwear in the woods wouldn't be saturated/tainted/affected by biological material and therefor wouldn't attract the same "decomposers" and therefor would deteriorate at a different rate.

    That's true, but I decided to throw the name in the rink in case they're wrong. He could've run away and stayed away, not because his stepfather killed him, but because the stepfather was gonna kill him sooner or later.

    That's a great find!!!

    He's a POI in a missing person's case who disappeared but isn't listed as missing anywhere.

    We need to find more people who are missing who aren't in the databases.

    Harbison is mentioned in the book A Beautiful Child, about the life of 'Sharon Marshall' who was really Suzanne Sevakis. I think at one point she was thought to be a victim of his. I read the ebook just recently. I didn't pay much attention to the part about Harbison because at the time I read the book, I already knew he was discounted....I'll read the sgement about Harbison again and see if there are any clues or links that jump out. Will repost if so.

    This one (although too short @ 5'8) could have grown if he went missing for a few years - I put him on and have included his Namus profile:

    248) Gunn, William D 5’8+ Brown(reddish?) DOB (Age 15/84) (p1724) Namus no dental avail, dna avail submitted

    Websleuths has a ton of info posted on him and his contact with Franklin Floyd and the church of new song. It is interesting to note the travels though important states and the crimes of which he is said to have commited.
    I could see him ending up murdered himself ,I could also see a death of natural causes being hidden in a case such as his and made to look like a murder.

    One thing I havent read in a while is a physical description ,I am thinking I read he was tall in an article I must have read no less then 10 years ago'.

    Someone upthread postulated that our UID might have been wearing boots at the time of his death and his perpetrator might have taken them. (Not trying to derail the thread so please forgive)

    It reminded me that I once met a couple who had been previously involved in the Tony & Susan Alamo ministries in Arkansas & California. This the same group who came to fame in the 1980's & 1990's for the famous boots and jackets (colored, studded & rhinestones) - made Michael Jackson's studded black leather jacket at one time. The Alamo ministries were a huge cult living communally outside of L.A. in Saugus, (Santa Clarita)CA.

    Members were forced to work 20 hr days, fed food from donations to the "church" and dumpster diving, gave all of their worldly belongings over to the church when they joined, pray over Susan's decomposing body to resurrect her from the dead, and Tony was eventually convicted of forcing child brides (some as young as 8) to marry him. It is reported that Tony got a little "weird" after his wife's death on 1982 and that is when things started to get really bad in the church/commune.

    While beatings of children were reported to have happened frequently, there were many other "disciplines" given to members for crimes such as walking across a lawn ($1 million fine), no food/fasting, no health care unless approved by Susan or Tony, people with mental disorders were taken to the hospital entrance and dropped off (aka the "zoo"). I have been doing some searching but many of the relevant articles no longer exist. Just a thought that maybe our UID ended up being a "victim" of a cult like religious ministry who "minister" to homeless or drug addicted folks circa 1990ish.

    Hello everybody,

    (off topic)First, thank you to Miss Muffet for linking to Sheep Flats Jane Doe in Washoe County. She is my #1 "pet case" and I found and joined WS through reading about her.(end off topic)

    Now, regarding MP Louis Neguelouart. There is some info in another WS thread here
    http://www.websleuths.com/forums/sh...716)-30-69-Shallow-Grave-Powerline-Rd-July-86
    Another WS user put in a lot of work trying to track down some DNA. Detectives, perhaps you can reach out to the detectives for that John Doe's case in Clark County or the NAMUS case manager to get up to date on the effort to get LN's dna.

    He does have a NAMUS page, the last name is just spelled a little differently. (sidenote, I think LN is of Basque descent. We have a large Basque population here in Nevada and almost all of them have long, hard-to-spell last names)
    https://www.findthemissing.org/cases/2072
    Says dentals are available and DNA is not.
