Head of Philly homicide says there are developments which may lead to his identity by the end of the year, sounds like DNA may have been helpful! NBC 10 usually posts links to the story, hopefully by the am. They interviewed founder of the Vidocq Society as well. So many want to give this boy his name back, fingers crossed!

Post from 31 Oct about the pending ID. @Identifinders anything to add?


Is ID imminent?

Anyone else watch the YT video where the ID of the Bibb County John Doe was announced? At the 59:15 minute mark Misty Gillis and Allison Peacock from Identifinders discuss which case announcements they have coming up. Allison mentions the "double duo" (UP701 and 703) and then says boy in the box isn't far away either.

After listening to Dave Mittelman on YT w/Trisha tonight, I cant help but wonder if THIS could be the case Othram has been working on. If I understood correctly there will be an announcement on the Othram case on Fri (or Mon)... which means good news (someone has been identified) whether this case or another.
