Make-a-List Monday: Heterochromia iridum

This list was created by Annie Keller of For the Lost fame. (She still really really needs donations to her dental fund, btw. It’s a worthy cause, and right now she only has about one-third of the sum required.) Anyway, the list is for people who have what’s called Heterochromia iridum, or eyes that are not the same color. Certainly it’s a striking distinguishing characteristic. Here we go:

Madeline Kelly Edman
Brian A. Jones
Winifred Joan Matronia
Janis Kay Sanders
Dewayne Alan Stewart
Robert Joseph Tennison

Out of 9,500-odd people on the Charley Project, these six are as far as I know the only ones with Heterchromia iridium. It’s a rare condition, more often seen in cats and dogs than human beings.

    My mother in law has a white cat named Lily that has one orange eye and one blue eye. She’s beautiful but mean as a snake too.

      Fun fact: odd-eyed white cats have a tendency to also be deaf.

        All white cats are. There’s a tendency for white animals to be deaf because the pigment cells in the inner ear die.

    When police say “all of someone’s personal belongings” were at their house, does that include perishable food in the refrigerator?

    • Meaghan February 10, 2014 / 12:26 pm

      I highly doubt it.

      • Angie February 10, 2014 / 4:23 pm

        I wish they would note that. If there wasn’t any food in the refrigerator it might indicate the person had planned to leave. Otherwise, if the date of disappearance is unclear (as in Winifred Joan Matronia’s case listed above), the expiration dates/mold on the food can be used to determine approximately when the person might have disappeared.

      What color are your left and right eyes?

      • Jose February 10, 2014 / 6:11 pm

        I have sectoral Heterochromia, both of my eyes are brown but I have a huge light brown-amber section with blue stress lines, In my left eye.

    What does it say on the U.S. driver’s licenses of people with heterochromia? Or a passport? Anyone know?

    • forthelost February 11, 2014 / 9:26 pm

      Not all driver’s licenses have eye color listed (my sister’s doesn’t) and in any event they usually put down whatever you tell them is your eye color.

    Some ppl aren’t very good at clearing out their fridge when they do plan to leave.
    Whenver I see “all his personal belongings were left behind” I think Oh yeah, so you know every single thing he owns and you know where he keeps every single thing? Uh huh.

  6. Princess Shantae February 10, 2014 / 5:41 pm

    Sorry, I don’t mean you personally, I meant the police or even the MP’s family. lol

    Meaghan, the brother of Julian Sam, who vanished in 1998, is in the news b/c he’s headed to the NFL and has come out as gay. Theirs is one of your real bad luck families: the one brother disappeared, one shot to death, baby sister drowned in a lake, two other brothers in and out of prison.

    • Meaghan February 10, 2014 / 9:58 pm

      I knew about the gay guy but hadn’t realized Julian was his brother.

      • Kat February 11, 2014 / 6:44 am

        I had read something about his family having a run of extremely bad luck but didn’t see anyone mentioned by name. Who knew? Just read there is going to be a major press conference about a break in the Lyons sisters case. They’ve ided a “person of interest”. Should be interesting to hear what LE has to say.

    Wow another crazy list. That’s alot of ppl for Charley. Is this a normal for ppl in general???? Mila Kunis has those huge eyes w/ wild colors. Very pretty. The eyes are so large & unusual looking that u can’t help but stare into them. And the white cat thing! I had no idea!
