    Oddly enough, the NamUs rule-out list consists of three females

    Here are three possibles that I came up with:

    Thomas Billy Lee Tillery
    http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/t/tillery_thomas.html
    [​IMG][​IMG]
    * Went missing only 25 miles from where remains were found.
    * DLC is a just over three months prior to discovery date.
    * Has protruding front teeth, but they don't appear to be gapped like the UID.

    Nicholas Patrick Barclay
    http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/b/barclay_nicholas.html
    [​IMG][​IMG]
    * Good resemblance from mouth up (since mandible is missing, UID's chin is a guess).
    * Distinguishing Characteristics indicate Nicholas had a gap between his teeth.

    Charles Arlen Leon Henderson
    http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/h/henderson_charles.html
    [​IMG][​IMG]
    * Good resemblance from mouth up.
    * Gapped teeth similar (though not spot-on) to UID reconstruction.

    :eek:fftopic: :eek:fftopic: :eek:fftopic: :eek:fftopic: :eek:fftopic: :eek:fftopic:

    NamUs lists three missing girls from Oklahoma (on the rule-out list for this case of a missing male), and only one of them (Monique Daniels) is listed in NamUs, DoeNet, NCMEC, or Charley.

    I found that the second one, Roxie "Mosure" is really Roxie Moser of Tulsa. From what I can gather, she is still missing, but she is not listed anywhere. I am wondering if there is some way we can find a photo of her and get her listed in the MP sites.

    I see nothing on Chandra Thompson either.

    The resemblance with Nicholas is very strong -- and he smiles like a kid who is embarrassed to show his teeth.

    This really bothers me. How can they have a skull since '94 of a child between the ages of 10 and 18 and not have compared this with every child missing in that year. It has been 16 years. I believe that this child greatly favors Charles Henderson in the teeth.

    Just because the names aren't listed in the rule-outs doesn't mean they weren't compared. It seems like record-keeping is, er, somewhat spotty for older cases...

    When I first saw this reconstruction Thomas Tillery was my immediate response. It makes me wonder how they would not have checked this before, given the proximity in time and location of his disappearance. You'd think a young boy's skull showing up 25 miles and three months from where a young boy disappeared that they would immediately check that match. I suppose it's possible they didn't have mtDNA to compare it to before now, but still....

    It appears that until recently, they thought the skull was of a female child, and DNA testing revealed that it was male. The first three rule-outs in NamUs were girls.
