    A new article on this case. A group of retired officers are volunteering time to try and solve this. Amazing to read in the article that the depression in the ground where Mr X was buried was still clearly visible 40 years on...

    That's great news! I hope they get some more details, and even better, to be able to give 'Mr X' his real name.

    I'm guessing that the "sketch" is based off of a postmortem picture. The mouth was probably open and the artist probably just blurred out the gaping hole below the top set of teeth and didn't adjust the space left over.

    Mr. X is now at the lab for further extraction--sounds like the first time was not successful, unfortunately.

    Kind of a side note, but I hope they can get Kim Parkhurst to do a recon. He certainly deserves a presentable one!

    Yeah....I hate to say it, but I am definitely not a fan of the one he has now. It scares me.

    Yeah, the current reconstruction could definitely be better. I can handle reconstructions that are derived from postmortem photos (they are probably some of the best and most accurate), but not when the decedent was unrecognizable upon discovery.

    I am very appreciative, though, that someone took the time to give him a reconstruction because lots of UIDs, unfortunately, don't have reconstructions at all.

    Could just mean that LE doesn't update Namus, or they have that page set so the general public can't see it.

    I’m thinking that has to be it! I hope someday we get to call him by his name... but as long as his name is returned to him, that’s good too!
