    I posted this on the main thread but thought I’d update here too.

    Hi- I emailed his sister back in October and I could have swore I posted her response. I have been caring for my dad who just passed away from cancer so a lot of thingsfrom last year are a blur to me. Anyway the email is below. And FWIW, I still think it’s very good chance it’s him.

    I sent-
    Hello Diane,

    I came across your missing brothers info on a website that I use to read and research missing people/ cold cases.

    There’s strong similarities to your brother and the Sumter County Jock Doe that was found murdered in 1976 along with a young female.

    Have you looked at this possibility?

    Here’s a link to their page.

    She replied-
    Thank you for your concern. We have seen it and the different pics are confusing, however, no one in the family has olive skin and he did not have thick eyebrows. He was a college student when he went missing so would not have afforded that kind of dental work. Also he was under 6 ft tall. Again thank you though, sincerely Diane

    Thank you. I wish I'd read this first. I just posed a question about the eyebrows on another string; now I have the answer.

    DNA confirmed that although they looked similar, they were not related.

    The lack of underwear and non shaved underarms and legs is indicative of some German people imoo

    Unless they were being held someplace prior to the murder and dumping...
    Allows time for hair to grow out and lack of underwear...
    Human trafficking, sex slaves, and ritual sex abuse was not widely known about during that time period...
    Perhaps trying to escape from someone, or a group of people, that tracked them down...
    Will check back again

    I find it unlikely that they were hostages prior to their murder. They were seen buying food at a fruit stand not long before their death. I believe the witness' testimony because the autopsy revealed fruit in their stomachs.

    My gut feeling (Opinion, nothing to prove it) remains they possibly encountered their killer(s) at the fruit stand and were killed as part of a robbery and probable carjacking. If we are to believe that the Sumter County local (who was found in possession of the murder weapon during a traffic stop) was in any way involved in these killings it would be logical that they had something he wanted. Don’t think there was any sexual attack, so unless it was just a thrill killing the murderer(s) probably got something of value as a result.

    Autopsy said they were well groomed...
    Her outfit and wedged heels don't fit with being hostages.
    Plus ice cream or fruit found in their stomach contents.

    I think their ethnicity is Italian. They have a really strong Italian - ancestry face. I don't think they're French or anything else. They could be Argentinian of Italian descent though, but they're certainly Mediterranean Italians.
