    Hm I thought Dr Who was known mainly in UK, not so overseas. I wonder if he came from Britain.

    According to Wikipedia, it has been shown in 50 countries at various times since 1963. The original version was syndicated in the US from the 1970s to the 1990s.

    Dr. Who has a quite a large fan-base over here in the States. It plays on the BBC America Channel on our cable TV.

    Found the shirt. It's sold at a couple of places online, at least.

    https://teesontap.com/t-shirts/tv-s...never-give-up-never-give-in-official-t-shirt/

    http://www.entertainmentearth.com/prodinfo.asp?number=RJDWAS2645 SMALL

    The shirt looks like it's in great condition, which makes me wonder if he bought it at The Great Philadelphia Comic Con, which happened April 7th thru the 9th of this year, which was just a few weeks before he died.

    I know for a fact that Entertainment Earth sets up shop at numerous comic/entertainment type conventions. (San Diego Comic Con, for example.) It might be worthwhile for LE to contact Entertainment Earth and see if there are credit card records for purchases of that shirt, if they were present at the Great Philadelphia Comic Con this year.

    Edit to add: I sent in this tip.

    One of the photos shows a fair amount of blood on the fabric that the UID is photographed on. I wonder if he was wrapped in it at the time of death and had bled from an injury.

    they should have cropped the photos better :(

    I saw one of a Hispanic male once and the face pic you could see his chest sawed open from the ongoing autopsy. :(

    Ryan Kumle NamUs states:

    Two tattoos one on each arm, one is of two pistons and the other reads"never drive faster than your guardian angel can fly - grandma Lynne"

    so no, it is not him.

    ok I came across this guy



    3432369_orig[1].jpg
    (I would do a side by side with the UID but did not want to post the Postmortem even though the post mortem honestly is one of the better ones that I have seen. he only looks sleeping)


    Hall, George Jr. Alias: George Wallis Hall
    Age: 53
    Race: W
    Height: 5' 8"
    Weight: 145
    Hair: Brown
    Eyes: Green
    Charged With: Possession of a Controlled Substance

    he is under dallas most wanted.. is one ince taller than the UID and weighed a bit less.. but the UID could of tried to clean himself up and gained weight in the process.. I know that happens.. his eyes say green but look grey to me in the photo. I also noticed he has that same oink complexion the UID has. Anyway I thought I would post him here since he is being looked for..so he could of gone anywhere to hide. I wish I could find some more info on the George guy.

    This is one of those PM photos that I am having difficulty picturing in life so bare with me if I'm way off.
    Nothing that says yes but nothing that says no either. Time, height, and weight are all close. No tattoos or scars mentioned for MP though. History of MI and DV but nothing about substances. Im from Maine but not familiar with that area but guessing it's like the rest. He could have taken off and been lost to the "woods" (or lived there for years as our hermit did) or gotten a ride out and been long gone in a few hours. News mentions blood in his found vehicle, woods and water searches, but also mentioned he could have gotten a ride somewhere so sounds like anything is possible. He has 2 kids. I'd be curious to know their names. Only to know if he'd had them tattooed. (I know - reaching)

    So, I'm looking through the cases in PA and found http://abc27.com/2017/04/04/man-52-reported-missing-in-franklin-county/ [FONT=&quot]Preston Wade Pfeil[/FONT][FONT=Open Sans, sans-serif] Last seen wearing a blue short sleeved shirt, black pants, and black and white shoes. I don't see any picture of him anywhere but the stats aren't that far off of the UID. Here's the websleuths post about him.
