    Yeah, some of the approximate deceased dates have been really screwed up.

    I'm getting to where I don't trust any information about older UIDs unless it's been confirmed recently. Grain of salt? How about a whole salt mine?

    Yeah really.

    In the old days, most places didn't have a medical examiner. The coroner was whichever local doctor was available. When I read about what they had in the way of training and facilities, I'm amazed it isn't worse than it is.

    And so many LE agencies won't even consider there might have been a mistake. It's maddening.

    Investigators looking for answers in 24-year-old cold case
    "The bodies were exhumed Tuesday. The case is just one that Morris’s investigative unit is looking at, after he formed the unit in December 2017 hoping to solve old cases with the technology we have today.

    “It could possibly go further," Morris said about possibly matching John Doe's and Jane Doe's DNA with someone in a registry. "Once we notify the family, they may have some information on why they would be in this area, who they would travel this area with, or last contacts.”

    The bodies were weeks old when they were originally found, with the victims estimated to be between 18 and 23 years old. Investigators say both were killed by gunshots to the chest.

    The petition for the exhumation calls for full body and dental radiographs, as well as a DNA sample."

    Pittsburg County Sheriff Chris Morris told the McAlester News-Capital the DNA does not match relatives of a Dangerfield, Texas, couple who disappeared around the same time the bodies known as John Doe and JaneDoe were found in 1995.
    [...]
    Morris said the DNA will be entered into a national missing persons database.

    Sheriff: Cold case DNA to enter national database

    [​IMG]

    DNA from two bodies exhumed from a Pittsburg County cemetery will enter a national database after it did not match a missing person case in Texas.

    The two bodies — a man and a woman — were found by a guardrail under a tree near Crowder Point on April 9, 1995, and have not been identified despite a nationwide effort at the time. Pittsburg County Sheriff Chris Morris said

    “It’s disappointing,” Morris said. “We were hoping to bring closure to this family, but it didn’t happen in this case.”
    ---
    Morris said the DNA results were first compared to a family from Daingerfield, Texas, who investigators believed could have been related to the two bodies found as there was two missing people from that area around the same time when John and Jane Doe were discovered in 1995.

    The sheriff said the DNA results will now go into a national database where the results will be compared to other families that have provided DNA in hopes of finding their missing family members.
