I found this article about Marvin Gibbs, who disappeared from New York in 1985, at the age of nineteen. The police don’t have much on Marvin, then or now, and the only photo they’ve got is of poor quality. But they think he may be a John Doe that turned up in West Virginia, in 1986, shot in the head. The problem is they can’t find any relatives to get DNA from. He lived with his mom in 1985, but she’s moved since then. His mom is Jamaican. No mention of the father.
I hope the police track down some of Marvin’s relations and I hope the West Virginia man is him. Otherwise they’re back to square one.
