    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.
