    There is a clay reconstruction image now appearing on namus that I have never seen before. I think it was just added on July 2nd, 2012.

    This badly decomposed body was discovered in a landfill in Oklahoma City on Feb. 18, 1981. The post mortem interval is 1980-1981 (months). The body was: Not recognizable - Near complete or complete skeleton.

    Healed fractures-cranial vault, left nasomaxillary region; ribs 2-10, left;
    ribs, 5,6,11, right; ribs 7-8-9, left - have 2 fractures each, united by osteophyte outgrowth; scapula, left with transverse fracture of inferior angle; healed compression fracture of T11.
    These injuries are consistent with a single episode of massive injury to the head and thorax occurring several to many years prior to death. The pattern is similar to that observed in seated forward impact, such as occurs in auto accidents.

    The forensic artist (Pratt) who did the reconstruction has obviously added hair (none was listed with the body) and glasses which were also not listed with the body.

    It's so sad that this case file hasn't been updated since 2013... The DNA sample hasn't even been submitted (it is available)
