    I'll take this one.

    Right off the bat, this guy seems a little short and heavy.

    He also seems to be young to have any gray hair, and there's gray hair in the LE photograph? IIRC?

    Per Namus:

    He left his mother's apartment to go to the store and has not been seen since. His truck was recovered in a remote wooded area in Hardin County. The keys were missing, but his wallet and driver's license were found in the vehicle.

    Pinehurst, TX, in Orange County

    His name is William Christopher Stonecipher.

    This makes sense of his various aliases
    Christopher Stonecipher
    Chris Stonecipher
    William Joseph Stonecipher
    Stoney



    William, Christopher, and Joseph are very common names in the Stonecipher family tree. They show up in TN, some in midwest.

    From Tennessee and Missouri to Texas roots: the CEO of Boeing Corp, Harry C. (Christopher?) Stonecipher, who resigned in a BIG romantic scandal.

    Enough of this rabbit hole!

    Intelius says William Chris Stonecipher, age 58 (presumably as of this date), from Orange TX is related to Rita Stonecipher.

    Intelius says there is a William Woford Stonecipher, also from Orange TX, age 79. Is this the father?

    One or more Rita Stoneciphers, age 77-78, from Texas are related to William S and Joseph S. This is presumably MP's family.

    Since there are family members/relatives, presumably a DNA link could be found if our UID is a Stonecipher.

    Since it looks as though there are parents, maybe more information can be found about his disappearance?

    The entries say foul play is suspected, but I'm thinking this could have been a suicide... Hard to know without more backstory.

    I have no way to verify why foul play would be suspected.

    If Stonecipher were the guy, family might have known if there were teeth missing at a date substantially before our UID was found (which is a prerequisite we're working on?)...

    I think the Stoneciphers were at least a middle class family, so it seems unlikely that teeth were in poor shape.

    The earlobes of Stonecipher stick out a lot. His upper lip protrudes quite a bit over his lower jaw (like he blows the trumpet or something); this may be bad teeth? Bad orthodontia?

    The photo of Stonecipher in LE TX records was updated in 2001, 11 years after his disappearance in 1990. http://www.txdps.state.tx.us/mpch/m...d='M9/28/20011:31:31PM'&Person=Missing Person

    It still seems astonishing to me that a family, apparently with so many similarly-named relatives, wouldn't have more photos of this guy. Family holidays? Guy friends? Girl friends? Odd.....

    No yearbook or high school information located. No job history located.

    Interesting that Prepaid Legal (of Jodi Arias trial fame) Founder was part of this family: Harland Stonecipher , MO.

    Thoughts: William Christopher Stonecipher seems really unlikely for the identity of "our" UID. There's too much that doesn't seem to fit including his weight and height, being too young to have grey hair, and the find of his car in the woods, which suggests he was no longer with the living at the time of his disappearance. If foul play is suspected, I'm guessing LE has more info on the circumstances of his disappearance. If not, this kinda shrieks suicide...


    DONE

    There is a Stoney Stoneciper on FB. Not sure if related.

    There are a lot of Stoneciphers and a nickname of "Stoney" for a Stonecipher is likely to be common as well. Hard to tell if these Stoneciphers are relatives. If DNA was needed, this route might be helpful to develop.

    Not sure if this is the right place to post this, but this seems to be the only thread for William Stonecipher. William is missing from Pinehurst, TX. Some human remains were recently found in Pinehurst by LE investigating a missing persons case: http://m.orangeleader.com/2017/10/19/human-remains-discovered-in-wooded-area-in-pinehurst/

    No idea if the remains could be William but I only found him and one other person missing from Pinehurst, TX (Eulan Hodgkinson is the other).

    That's interesting.

    It sounds like they were looking for a specific missing person, which could mean somebody recent who was in danger, or could mean a tip or something from a much older case.

    William doesn't currently have any identifiers, according to his Namus page. I wonder if they'll get DNA now?
