    There's a rash of old UIDs that have been cleared up recently at http://www.doenetwork.org/closed2017.php - some of them might have been cleared up by the FBI using those extra fingerprints they just added.

    Amazing, 43 years later, certainly gives hope and confidence that many more cold cases will be solved and the unidentified, named!

    I'm still confused about how the new fingerprint technology is supposed to work.

    What has been described in this article would be useful in finding fingerprints at a crime scene, but I don't see how it would be of any use matching an UID with a set of fingerprints on file.

    Here is another UP case that's been solved, but the man's name wasn't released (as of yet).
    http://www.niagara-gazette.com/news...cle_0a0b4ab6-613b-11e7-adc3-db5352d6a2df.html

    (BBM) I'm thinking we may come across this more often than not.
