    I can't seem to get Doe Network site to copy & paste on here. This young man (UID 1008UMTX) was one of three found on the same day in Houston.
    What do you think of 3DMIL as a possible match?

    Wow,that is quite a resemblance.
    I'd just posted a thread on this very case.
    I wonder if Harris county has checked this guy out?
    The timing is certainly right.
    A DNA sample of the relatives might be helpful.
    Id seen this same boy on the Charley Project 1972 listing but I was looking for Texas missing persons.
    I also hadnt seen that reconstruction.
    You know when David Brooks ( one of Corll's acomplisses) gave his statement he spoke of a kid that he and Corll had picked up hitch hiking.In 1972.
    I wonder if this could possibly be him?
    The info with the reconstruction says he died sometime in 1973 but I thought all of Corll's last victims were accounted for.Who knows.

    Do you think it is a close enough probability? If so, does anyone want to contact Harris county. I'm new at this but don't mind doing it unless someone with more experience wants to. This young man's parents are probably getting on up there in age (at least in their 70's if they are still living), it would be nice to give them some answers if we can.

    Sugie I really think someone should.
    I would think that Harris county would have done the obvious and searched the Doe Network ect. to look for time appropriate dissapearences but who knows?

    You should make the call, you found him! :)

    I think the resemblance is striking, they both have the same broad nose. Keep us posted!

    I hope I do too. They have submitted bones for DNA testing on all three of the boys in Harris County. Hopefully they can identify these young men and return them to their families.

    I certainly hope they are able to get a sample from Dermot Kelly's people.
    I still have a strong feeling about him.This stuff does take time though.

    Im bumping this...I hope there is some word eventually from Harris county.
    I still feel your on the right track with this one.
    I wonder if Dermont Kelly has any relatives that can be located by The coroners office.
    I hope they follow up on this,you would think one look at their reconstruction and a photo of Dermont would be enough to make them take an interest.

    I wonder the same about the Kelly family. This young man would be in his 50's now, so parents would probably be in their 70's. Keeping my fingers crossed that there is someone that they can locate should they think this might be him. How long do DNA results usually take? Maybe when they have completed those, all three of these young men can be identified.

    Hi Sugie!
    Yeah I was wondering what steps they would take.
    I assume they would contact the authorities who first handled Dermot Kelly's disapearence.
    But whether any of his people can be located is another question...
    1972 was a long time ago, and imagine trying to track down some one with the last name Kelly? Goodnight.
    Still If I was a betting man Id put money on it being him.Just a strong feeling.I cant explain why.
    If you hear anything back please post asap o.k.?

    Hi Kline, I hope your feeling is right. It has been so long. And yes, a very common name. I hope some of the family did stay in touch with LE just in case.
    Is it just me or did you notice all three re-constructions have some similar facial features. Strong features especially the noses. I wonder if a certain look was targeted. Just a thought......
    I can't even imagine what it would be like not knowing where one of my children was. I will post immediately if I hear anything.
    My prayers go out for all those who have lost loved ones and those who wait and wonder. God bless you all.
