His Doe Network page also provides more medical cluesLemme try to send that Bat Signal to some medical professionals -- maybe someone has orthopedic experience?
I'd figured a car accident, but a bad fall -- off a ladder, catwalk, maybe a tall horse could cause neck damage?
@meanmaryjean , @LaborDayRN , @BeginnerSleuther , we're looking for your opinion on what sort of injury leads to this kind of bone graft, or did in 1980???
On the right side of his pelvis were 3 Trephine holes that may indicate that within the previous 10 years he had some sort of bone graft.
We used to have an anesthesiologist, KZsomething, and a physical therapist on the Missy Beavers thread....

Prior broken nose. Evidence of orthopedic surgery, possibly as a result of an accident. The victim may have had surgery that required a bone graft from the right hip (where 3 small holes were found) and the bone placed in the neck vertebra. May have had a dietary deficiency.
He also had evidence of long-term denture use (I'm not sure if full or partial)... odd but not unheard of for a middle-aged guy. Might be another indicator of some kind of deficiency.
