    I take it we should be searching for a very slim male. From a quick search, most major retailers don't even offer men's jeans with a 30-inch waist, they start at 32.

    What about Terry Rawdon?
    https://www.findthemissing.org/cases/9072/8/

    It seems like he would have been the 1st person they thought of though. From the same county, weight listed as 145lbs.

    I think I'm going to send it in just in case...

    I guess he can be ruled out because the shoes weren't sold until 2005...

    Actually it is easy to find size 30 waist jeans. My son needs a 28 and in my searching I found lots of 30s, just very few 28 and 29s. 30x34 would be an extremely thin man. My son weighs 130 and is 5'7" and wears a 28x30. My husband is 5'10 and wears a 32 length. By that comparison I am guessing 6' tall and 160 pounds.

    Webrocket,

    Have you sent an email to the case director RE: Benjamin Lund being a match? If not, I would be happy to for you. It very well could be him.

    Just emailed the regional case manager about Benjamin Lund. I must say I think the new reconstruction resembles him as well. Fingers crossed!

    Just thought I would shed some light on MIchael Zipfel because of his medical history and proximity to the location where the remains were found.

    http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/z/zipfel_michael.html

    Michael Jerome Zipfel


    Missing: since 2005 from Coppell Texas
    Age: 46 years old (way beyond the maximum age perimeter of 35 years therefore probably discounted as a possibility)
    Height and weight: 5'9", 130-140lbs.
    Medical conditions: mentally unstable and addicted to drugs in 2005

    Coppell Texas is about 40 minutes away from Tarrant County:

    personally I think he is too short to have worn jeans that had a 34" inseam.

    It is hard to know for sure with the variation of styles in how jeans have been worn in the past few years. Here are some examples:

    Michael Zipfel was homeless and a drug addict. Someone could have given him the jeans or he may have acquired them at a Goodwill store.
