    Your Help Needed To Solve Murder Cold Case
    August 04, 2011 5:20 PM

    In an effort to bring closure to families agonizing over lost loved ones NewsChannel 9 is partnering with the Hamilton County Sheriff's Office. Detectives have invited us into the files of some of their most puzzling cold cases.

    Hamilton County detectives have a real "John Doe" case on their hands, the first one to air on NewsChannel 9.

    They shared a forensic scientist's drawing of a man who's life came to a violent end the summer of 2006. It's based on an autopsy performed on a badly decomposed body. Hamilton County detectives still don't know who he is.

    "Somewhere out there there is a family grieving, not knowing what's happened to a family member," Hamilton County detective David Sowder said.

    Bumping. There is a huge rule out list for this UID, over 100 names. Meaning he was less likely to have been reported missing?

    DNA Doe Project has taken on his case and they will need the public's help to fund his DNA sequencing! Please see their facebook page for today's post www.facebook.com/DNADoeProject

    "UPDATE – NEW CASE

    DDP will be taking on a case of a 2006 John Doe from Hamilton Co, Tennessee. He will be a DoeFundMe case if and when his DNA passes quality control. Here are a couple links to background on him: http://www.hcsheriff.gov/coldcase/displaycase.php… and Doe John

    Our website is undergoing upgrades and updating, but we will have a page and Paypal button for him as soon as we know he can be sequenced. We’ll post more information on him at that time. Thanks again to all of you who have been supporting our Does!"

    Is there any way the thread title can be Hamilton, Birchwood instead of just Birchwood, since Hamilton is the county name?

    ...aaaand here we go!

    "The DNA Doe Project is pleased to share that we have an update on the case of Chattanooga/Birchwood John Doe. His DNA was submitted to the lab for DNA extraction as of 17 December 2018. Funds will need to be raised through DoeFundMe to cover his various lab and associated costs.

    Who was Chattanooga/Birchwood John Doe?
    On August 28, 2006, hunters found the body of an unidentified white male in a wooded area along Eldridge Road near Chickamauga Lake in Birchwood, TN. He was wearing a gray t-shirt with a Tom and Jerry cartoon logo, Arizona-brand blue jeans, white tennis shoes, and a bandana. His teeth were in bad shape, with many missing and others with excessive decay and staining. He was estimated to be between 40 and 55 years old. His manner of death is considered a homicide.

    As of this week Chattanooga JD 2006 now has 9 matches over 40cM with the highest being 56.8 which is not a close relative. But every match puts a mark somewhere on a family tree and hopefully one day they will all link together.

    I recently submitted Johnny Lee Smith to the doenetwork for a possible match for this one. I received an email back this morning and they are going to look into this as a possible match and let me know something as soon as they get an answer. Keeping my fingers crossed this one will be him his family has been waiting so long for an answer.

    @carbuff long list! Am I correct in assuming all those MPs without a Namus number actually aren't registered in Namus? If that's the case, far out, it's amazing we ever identify anyone!

    No, those names were on the old list. I think they all had numbers but I didn't take the extra time to copy them over, just added the new ones.
