Case History A mushroom hunter found a human skull a half-mile west of state Route 20 south of Libbey Road in Coupeville on November 7, 1996. More remains and a .25- caliber pistol were found the next day. Items from the description strongly indicate this person had a connection to the military. Randolph Engineering has produced eyewear and special optical equipment to the US military since 1982. Looking into this case brought me the question of whether or not military deserters are listed anywhere for the public to view. In researching that aspect, I've discovered that the Army's CID will work with local law enforcement to look for missing personnel, and list the person's info with NCIC. The Navy's NCIS maintains a missing persons' website, but only lists those cases with unusual aspects (missing from ships, personnel missing with indications of foul play) I can't find any central data base for personnel who are AWOL or considered deserters. I did find one missing person that bears consideration in this case: (courtesy The Charley Project) http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/s/summers_william.html Summers went missing from his ship at the Naval base at Bremerton, WA. Bremerton is approximately 60 miles south of Coupeville, where the UID was found. More info is available on the NCIS website: Sex:MaleRace:CaucasianHeight:6' 01"Weight:160 poundsEye Color:BlueHair Color:BrownRemarks:Petty Officer Summers was assigned to the U.S.S. Robison (DDG-12), which was in port at the Naval Shipyard in Bremerton, Washington, when he disappeared on January 4, 1982. William Kermig Summers is described as quiet, reserved, and a gentle loving person. He was raised Baptist and became very religious around the time of his disappearance. He became argumentative regarding his religious convictions and has been known to become physical in arguments. It is suspected that he has become involved in religious cults and might have a mental or emotional disorder. He likes tennis, fishing, and working with children and mentally handicapped people. Around the time of his disappearance, he mentioned an interest in moving to Canada. He could be going by the name of Andrew.
