    JUST IN: The remains found near Myrtle Beach, SC are not Brittanee Drexel. The remains belong to a man who is at least 20

    I'm wondering if maybe this is going to be Johnny.

    I found this to be interesting in determining the identity of bones, but don't know how accurate it may be.

    The eye and nose openings in the skull and certain proportions of the skull vary by racial group between the Mongoloid, Negroid, and Caucasoid races. By examining the skull, or certain parts of the skull, forensic folks can determine the race.

    I'm sure that when the forensics anthropologist looks at the remains, race will be one of his/her first things to identify about the remains, then comparisons based on dental records or DNA (if needed) will be done to missing people who are of the deceased's race, age group, etc.

    Just wish it didn't take so long to get an ID. But thankful this person will likely be IDed.

    I have a vague idea about this area, but I wonder specifically what type of land the remains were found on: dryland (forest), wetlands, marshland, etc. I'm thinking somewhat dry, since they said the remains were spread around, but I wonder how they got there. Any possibility other than being killed/dumped in that specific spot?

    In a picture from an article posted above, I noticed LE walking on a railroad track so maybe the person was walking on the track when he was hit or fell off the train.

    More bones found this morning.

    Additional human remains were located on New Year's Day by a search party near Ronald McNair Boulevard, a short distance from the bones found over he weekend. Since it is not a complete skeleton, Coroner Edge believes the bones could belong to the same person. The anthropologist on the case can determine if the bones found are from the same male.

    Those RR tracks have not been in use for several year., I recall one train travelling thru there in the past 5 years. For a long time, they were used to store empty box cars, however. That was about 3 years ago.

    Tidewater remains have been entered into Namus. At first I thought Johnny was a possibility but race is listed as white. Age 35-60 and height 5'7". Also swim trunks and pendant found. Also the UID had the following:

    I still think of Mr. Brown all the time.

    I'm sad that there is no new update.
