Discussion in 'Sand Canyon John Doe' started by anthrobones, Jan 6, 2006.
Reminding myself of this today.
Should we eliminate men who have dental bridges or partial dentures? Or are teeth missing in such a way that a bridge might be possible?
I don't use Twitter much but will for the purpose of this case ... I just tweeted for my aunt to retweet ... She's a media personality in Florida and has a lot of followers and may have other media connections in the NV area and such
I'd say face shape and features are close on this one.
Never mind. Ruled out by Mmarty.
Have we seen any pictures of the shoes or car? I thought the shoes were posted. If we can get the location and position of the car I'd like to take a look at some map routes, etc.
An ad showing the shoes was posted, but not the actual shoes found. They either are being tested or the detectives don't want the photo posted in here, as I think they were brought up in the first few pages after the detectives came into the thread. The car info is also being held close to the chest, probably b/c there is no certainty that it is involved in this guy's death.
GGE - In the process of trying to find the ad in the early pages, I did find the "report" I'd read that the shoes were, in fact, Stadia shoes (not Standia, Skandia, etc.). It was posted by lcsodetectives here.
Since the thread has seen some new faces as well as visitors, it'd probably be good to have a FAQ page for this John Doe thread with summary, relevant photos, and the timeline by lcsodetectives.
Here is a summary sheet with case summary, photos, and thread highlights, for those visitors who don't have the time to go through the whole thread. Mods, feel free to adjust and/or post in the beginning of the thread as well:

Quick update. We're adopting the hashtag #JohnDoeNV. Maybe we'll trend. Doubtful, but anything's possible. Optimism at it's best.
I need some help!!!
Tweeted all the anchors from 3 of the major news Stations in Phoenix and my notifications are though the roof on twitter asking for more info!!!
Where do I send them????
Since they're media, I'd send them to other recent media links:

That way they'll circulate the press coverage Marty was trying to get.
A slight offshoot - as this thread was linked earlier to another UID (Crowley, TX), I've been exploring a possibility over there that I'd love to have your input on. It's possibly a long shot, but it could also fit. And I'm tired of talking to myself over there, lol.
Post 34 is my first of three exploring a possible match: http://www.websleuths.com/forums/sh...eral-1-w-Wings-Oct-87&p=11713114#post11713114
There. I fixed my typo.
I came to the thread to share Bernina received leads. She's doing amazing work.
EVERYONE is doing amazing work. This wouldn't be possible without all of the people who are helping out, and there are many of you.
I'll work on a list when things slow down to give thanks and recognition to those of you helping.
FYI: Media inquiries don't necessarily pan out. I've had many inquiries like this (I don't post them here), but they often determined it's not relevant to their regions.
Fingers crossed these ones and others in the works right now are interested!
Funny! I remember feeling panicked the very first time I got an inquiry response. It's exciting and terrifying at the same time!
You do amazing work! Keep it up!
(Just an wee aside--as a writer, I tweet continually with media on a daily basis. It's just been my own experience that retweeting the small media stories gets the stories into bigger media markets.)

IMO, everyone who has posted on this thread and tried to give a name to this UID has contributed to that goal. We do it in our own way and in our own time. There has been some great work done here. I would think that all efforts would be appreciated!
Really. It's been awesome to be a part of.
It would appear that JD is also on the Missing Persons list, now (since 1991):
