    Yes, thank you for submitting him! I’d love to see our Doe identified. I don’t wish this fate upon Gary, but his family deserves answers. They’re both such sad cases.

    I skimmed through the posts but didn't see if anyone was offering (or interested) in seeing the sites of some the Northern Kentucky Does' crime scene locations (as a reference). Also, I have accumulated historical records and research of the area dating back to the 1940s.

    Hi!! Thanks for joining the thread! :) Feel free to share anything you have about Kentucky and these cases here! I personally would love to see any of the crime scene locations. And I know there are some history buffs here who could probably work magic with any records you shared.

    I appreciate you offering to help!!

    I'm very interested. Anything that can help to "get the bigger picture" and connecting information while working on this cases is very welcome, like you are.

    Thanks for the warm welcome! I live about 20 miles northeast of Grant County John Doe's crime scene, so I will go there first. The NAMUS map pinpoints the location as a construction company (which isn't the location of the barn he was found in). I will call them in the morning to see if anyone is willing to talk to me. The construction company listed is a direct competitor of a company I will not name at this time, but I do have direct ties to; I will have to tread lightly. Northern Kentucky (Newport) went from two mobs running gambling, strip clubs and drugs to one mob running a construction company. You can look up the Newport, KY past scandals, the Beverly Hills Supper Club fire and the fact of Covington, KY and Newport, KY's local governments shielding the release of crime data. They want businesses to think the area is "safe."

    Sorry for the long post!

    Hmmm...no one stands out as a possible match. There are a few sets of skeletal remains found after his disappearance, but not many descriptors for them.

    Interesting case though. Seems like there’s a good chance he could be in Kentucky.

    Yes I couldn't see any good matches for him but I wanted to put his name in here for future reference; I agree it seems highly possible he is in KY.

    The National Missing and Unidentified Persons System (NamUs)

    Not sure if this one has been listed here already but I found it rather odd it says that a worker trimming trees along the power lines found a skull inside a barn. That in itself is odd but add to that the fact that the skull was determined to be of Asian decent and that is really strange. There is not a very large population of Asian people in the town this was found in only 340 out of a total population of 32,113 according to google records.

    During the morning hours of Sunday June 7, 2020 the Johnson County Sheriff’s Office responded to a call in the White House community of Johnson County. A human skull had been located in a driveway of a residence.
    It is believed that dogs had carried the skull to that location.
    An initial search of the area was conducted by the Johnson County Sheriff’s Office with assistance of the Grant County Sheriff’s Office K9 Search and Rescue.
    Johnson County Coroner also responded to the scene and transported the human remains to Frankfort for examination and possible identification.

    Currently no identification has been made and the matter is still under investigation by the Johnson County Sheriff’s Office. We encourage anyone with information regarding any missing person to contact the Johnson County Sheriff’s Office at 606-789-3411.

    The image used is a historical ape skull. I can't imagine why they used it.

    Okay. I was about to say, that does NOT look human to my untrained eye. Why would they chose to use that?!

    Thank you @Melt71 for posting this!

    @MadMcGoo I don't know if you listen to podcasts but on Just the Tipsters episode 166 which was released this week, they mention that they are doing interviews on two separate KY cases in coming episodes.

    Hi everyone! I'm new to the forum, but definitely not new to unsolved cases and Does. I'm planning on paying the original detectives on Mac's case a visit this week. Anyone have any specific burning questions you'd like me to ask?

    I've recently picked up Mac's case as a personal grail and I'm doing as much ground-zero research as possible. More on that later.

    I was going to post some stuff the other day, but I kept having trouble. Everything I wanted to post that I had a news story to go along with was scanned and put online, so I just had snips from them (i.e. images). I think the file sizes were too big.

    This is a list of UID's in Kentucky that were in a newspaper on my 18th birthday, way before I was using the internet at all. Several have since been identified and it is more of a curiosity than useful. I wonder how many stories like that were ever in the news back then. I don't remember any, even though one on the list was found very close to where I live and I don't remember it at all.

    It seems to be working. I just hope that everyone can read it.

    These are always interesting to me. And it’s a rather long list too. I’ve come across a few of these in my research for Kentucky. I don’t think any were as long as this one. Thank you for sharing! And I had no troubles reading it :)
