    Case History
    The body of this white or Native male was located in a Quinault area motel. His death has been ruled a suicide.

    He had checked into the motel using the name "Lyle Stevik" from 1019 S. Progress Avenue, Meridian, Idaho. The address he listed is for a motel. Lyle Stevik is a character in the book You Must Remember This, by Joyce Carol Oates. He indicated that he was going to stay a few more days though he had only paid for one evening. The maid entered the room on September 17, 2001 and found him hanging from the coat rack with his leather belt. He had left money on the nightstand with a note that said "For the Room". The only personal belongings in his possession was a tooth brush and paste.

    He arrived by bus, possibly one that came from Port Angeles (south), but a bus came up from Aberdeen (northbound) and arrived about the same time. Neither driver was sure if he was on their bus. He arrived with no luggage, and there was no luggage, clothing, etc. in the motel dumpster. He may have come from Canada, as the clerk recalled that he had "a slight Canadian accent". The fact he wrote the word "suicide" on a piece of paper found in the trash leads authorities to believe he wrote a letter home, telling someone of his intentions, that he was going to disappear, so they aren't looking for him. He may have been dying, or suffered from depression, as he lost a lot of weight, although nothing was found at the autopsy. There were no indications that he ever wore a wedding ring. Fingerprints were sent to FBI and RCMP with negative results.

    I submitted the Romanian man who went missing as a child via FB messenger. They thanked me and said they would forward it to the investigators.

    Another avenue my mind went down is what if he was a fugitive? If he were here illegally from another country, he would have had one hell of a time getting out of the country right after 9-11

    Please don’t take my questions in a confrontational tone, I am simply curious. [emoji846]

    Since his Dna was able to be extracted from his blood sample, and your website states extracting it that way incurs a minimal cost, how much will the complete process of extraction and testing cost?

    Yes, but if you read further, they say if the Dna has to be extracted from bone...it can cost $750. Hang on, let me find it so I can quote it.

    “The process described above assumes that DNA is already available for a Doe from the medical examiner. If no DNA is available, it will be ncessary to obtain DNA from biological material retained by the ME. The expense of trying to extract DNA from blood is minimal, but an attempted extraction from a bone or a tooth can cost up to $750 per attempt, whether or not DNA is obtained from the sample.”

    They have a blood sample for Lyle which already passed quality control so they don't need to extract from bone... they only need to extract from bone in cases where other DNA is not readily available. Bone DNA extraction does not apply in Lyle's case. They are trying to raise $1,500 for DNA sequencing and have already raised $430 thus far.

    I always wonder if he was one of IK first victim. IK gets out of the military
    in July 2001. 9/11 happens. He’s not in the military and it’s frustrating. His friends are prepping for war, he’s out. He meets a traveler from another country or who looks like he’s from another country, and unleashes on him. IK had a very homogeneous growing up, with exposure to racism. The crisp cash came from an ATM most likely, likely IK used the card. As cash was always a motive. No possessions would be an IK move. Plus the fact the guys hair was perfect. Staged. Victim of chance. And I still think Lyle was that far north trying to exit the USA by ferry where you didn’t need much ID, then the borders got closed down.

    I just wanted to toss out this missing man. I don't think it's Lyle but it never hurts to have a look. maybe he will look familiar as another John Doe. I've never seen him before.

    Post mortem photo ahead.. I want to add this to conversation. You Must Remember This..a story about a boxer named Lyle Stevick. Why would he know this name unless he read the book and why would he have read the book. A college student? I thought maybe he, himself could be a boxer. In his profile pic he does seem to have the flattened facial features boxers get from repeated injuries over time ( no offense) it's just MO though<modsnip>

    In the book the boxer's name was actually Felix Stevik. Lyle Stevik was the father who had 4 children. Felix was his brother.
