    1112 Broadway is the address in Doe. Looks like it could be apartments? Hard to tell what the neighborhood was like back then. Horseshoe Casino Cincy is right across the street, but that wasn't there back then - I wonder what was?

    Do we know for a fact this young man's race? I know NamUs says white, but I also know that NamUs usually lists Hispanic people as white, something that drives me crazy. With only a drawing you can't tell anything about the person's competition. But I guess with blue eyes you would expect him to be white, right?

    This looks really good to me. The hair color, eye color, height, & weight are all basically right on. He is on NamUs but he doesn't have DNA or Dental entered.

    It strikes me as unusual that someone this age would have so many scars. Any thoughts on what may have caused these? If he had some sort of medical condition that made him prone to falls or accidents this could help narrow down the possibilities. Just a thought.

    Those sound like the kinds of scars that are common in many outdoor-type professions and hobbies: hunting, fishing, farm and ranch work, lumberjack, landscaper, carpenter, etc.

    I have reservations, but Steven W. Hendricks? He is missing from Washington, IN (~3.5 hrs from Cincinnati) the month prior to the discovery of Broadway Doe. Hendricks's girlfriend's body was found in their home, but he has never been found, alive or dead. He seems to be considered alternately as a suspect and as a potential victim of foul play himself. No motive is offered for either his disappearance or possible death, or that of Rebecca Harvey, his girlfriend. He was 22 years old and had dark hair and a mustache, although his eyes are listed as hazel, not blue--my biggest reservation with the match. Doe says DNA is available, but I'm not sure what type. He is listed as 5'7" and 135 pounds, which is consistent with Broadway's 5'8" and 137 pounds. I could easily see him going to Cincinnati to jump town as a fugitive, but I have no idea what would have prompted someone to lethally attack him there.

    Unfortunately, his hairstyle obscures a lot of his features in the one photo I can find of him online, including his hair line, most of his eyebrows, and his ears. The lips, chin, hair pattern of mustache, and placement of eyes appear similar. His eyes had a "sleepier" appearance than that of the photo of Broadway, but that appears to be the most retouched aspect of the image for me. Hazel seems to mean very different things to different people (see this article for examples), but I do think Hendricks's eyes in the photo may be too dark to be Broadway.
