Can you please add the link to the FB info you mention. I couldn't find it, but I stink at FB stuff.
It probably means that they need to do another round of extraction to get a better quality sample, and therefore need a second round of funding to pay for it.
Ok, I don't understand it, but I'll trust it..... none of that DNA stuff makes sense to me.
On another note, I found an old article about this case. It mentions a bottle of pills found with our John Doe, with a doctors name and number, but no city or area code.

I wish we knew more about this prescription. I realize the physical evidence no longer exists, but what about notes with the doctors info and perhaps what kind of prescription.
I heard from the ME's office this morning regarding this case with some new information I can share.
The DNA swabs from James Charles Stanford family has been received at the lab. The lab is closed due to Covid-19 which is causing back ups in testing.
More to follow.
NamUs has been updated with some additional information regarding the envelope found with the prescription. The name "Scott" was on the prescription.
She gave me the name of the doctor who wrote the prescription, but I don't yet have her permission to post his name and I don't know that his name is particularly relevant in helping us id our guy.
Here is what I can share. The doctor had a family practice in Berwyn and retired in 1976. He is long since deceased.
IF our guy resided in Berwyn he may have attended Morton West High School. Anyone with a subscription to classmates or another site that has yearbook pictures is welcome to see if anyone from Morton West say from the class of 1968 through 1974 resembles our guy and research indicates no evidence of this person being alive after 1977.
DO NOT post personal names of people from a yearbook search. A photo, initials, page number, year and name of HS yearbook should be OK for the thread. ANY additional information for discussion will have to be set up in the conversation/private message area of Websleuths and we can discuss there.
Hth. At least we have a little more to chew on while we await the forensic stuff.

I don't have access to a clear view on classmates. Can you send me a screen shot of the page?
PM'd you with some photos from the yearbooks.
This is getting exciting!
Me too please?
@carbuff Sent you an invite to the convo...First post is the pictures I sent to Cubby.
*raises hand to be included please and thank you
@meanmaryjean For some reason it says I'm unable to invite you to the conversation. Can you allow invites from me?
Has anyone looked at the Morton East books from that year span? That school also has parts of Berwyn in its zoning area.
I have not yet done any searching in this Berwyn newspaper. If anyone wants to take a look.
Berwyn Life on Newspapers.com
Berwyn Life is the local newspaper. Most people in these areas read their smaller local papers rather than the Chicago papers.
Did anyone find any info on RS from Morton West class of 1976? The name is so common I was unable to find a thing on him.
Normally I like to do a little more vetting before sending to the authorities, but this guy resembles our guy enough I can just brush it aside and am going to forward the information @coffeeandacig sent me to the ME. Since she has access to info the general public doesn't maybe she can find out if RS is still alive or not. Especially since Cook county was able to locate some living missing persons in their quest to ID the remaining Gacy uid's.
I'll wait a few days since it's a holiday weekend and that will give posters some time to read this and let us know if anything was found for RS.
Some additional info on Berwyn newspapers

I think sending it in is the right thing. If he's alive, that's all good.
I can't find any info about Berwyn RS after those high school entries, though without an actual birthdate it's hard to distinguish him from the other RS's in a couple of cases.
Found what looks like another Senior yearbook photo from RS in 1978 from Glenbard North in Carol Stream.
If you want, I'll pm you all with the photo.
But, at least we know he was originally in Berwyn up until 1977 then Carol Stream in 1978.
