    Okay, everybody who didn’t google Othram, raise your hand.

    Of course we snooped! What kind of armchair sleuthers do you think we are?! There are no slackers here. Besides, we are so excited about this genetic dna thing!:p

    What’s a swag kit? The group is private & I avoid FB groups as much as possible, but want to support the cause!

    Agreed McGoo!

    I’d so love for this guy’s case to be taken on by the experts, his identity restored to him & family traced & informed. Can’t help but feel he ended up far from home.

    ( I would certainly be happy to donate towards costs, if this is possible from the UK)

    @othram
    Another famous KY case here: KY - KY - Owensboro, WhtMale UP87, 25-40, in woods off Pleasant Valley Rd, Jan'90
    They had been misidentified in 2007 before it was determined that investigators were wrong. It's been more than 30 years cold now, and we still don't know who did it (although it is speculated the killer(s) was(were) local.

    Hi everyone! This case has no Websleuths thread because it NEVER WENT COLD. As soon as investigators had exhausted leads using CODIS and other forensic tools, they came to Othram and we helped them make the identification and return this person to his family. This is the future!

    Very exciting! Great work. I’m glad he was quickly identified and returned to his family. May he rest in peace.

    We stand corrected. Apparently there is a Websleuths thread for EVERY case: IL - McHenry County Conservation District police ask for help identifying body found in rural Harvard
