    I was reading through the thread on William Richard Bradford (serial killer) and saw that he had photos seized by police after his arrest with possible victims. Picture #89 seen here http://www.lacountymurders.com/wanted/LADIES1.html (scroll down) is of a male sailor in uniform. This intrigued me first and so I started looking for missing sailors from the 1970's & 1980's and came up with Schram. Schram's parents said that he called from Florida but don't know exactly where in FL in late 1981 and it was the last time he was heard from. WRB was living in Florida at least as late as 1980 (http://articles.sun-sentinel.com/2006-08-27/news/0608260352_1_sheriff-sexual-assault-victims & William Richard Bradford - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia). Several sites also claim WRB was bisexual and also could be responsible for the deaths of men as well as women. I will try to post a side by side so that you guys don't have to pull up both pages to compare, but I'm new to this so bear with me here. For now, what do you think??? (Anxiously awaits :fence: )

    They look very close. For a while, I was thinking that they could be the same guy. But if you look at both of Schram's photos in his Charley Project page, his face appears to be noticeably asymmetrical. His left eye (our right as we view the photos) sits a little higher than his right eye.

    I don't see the same asymmetry in the photo of the unidentified sailor.

    Both of Schram's photos show the same asymmetry, so I don't think it is a photographic anomaly or an illusion created by camera angle.

    Thanks a lot for that, it does seem like it pretty much rules it out now with that outlined for me. I don't have a great eye for things like that unfortunatly, something about the circumstances seem very eerie about the time frame for this. I wish the unidentified picture was a full body so we could tell at what angle he was standing/sitting etc. Very helpful and much appreciated!

    From the Sturgeon Bay PD link: Schram's father stated that he received a phone call from Terrance in early 1982. Terrance said he was calling from some unspecified location in Florida, stating that he was considering turning himself in to Navy authorities. He had been AWOL, and would have been designated as a deserter by the time of that last call. NamUs has dental available but not yet published, and DNA entered.
