    In regards to Mr. Keyton, he’s missing a leg, there’s 3 people in the car, but only one set of teeth, nobody in the vehicle possesses a driver’s license, what do you want to bet the car came to a rest in a creek or some other body of water, or is lost in a bunch of trees somewhere?

      The solutions to MP cases are often self-evident. This one doesn’t exactly take a detective with Sherlockian powers of deduction to explain.

      Updated follow up to Kat’s post: Is Emporia John Doe, the boy found with a note from two young women, Jason Patrick Callahan?

      It seems like a real possibility. Click on link for unidentified person profile, a photo of Jason, and additional information.

      Jason’s mother, Margareta Evens, just filed a NamUs missing persons report for her then 19 year old son on January 13, 2015, almost 20 years after he was last seen.

      Jason was around 5’10” tall, 160 pounds, with wavy light brown to strawberry blonde hair and brown eyes. He was last seen in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina on or around June 1, 1995. His family believed that he may have moved to Champagne, Illinois

      According to the Website, The Smoking Gun, Jason left home in 1995 to follow the rock group “The Grateful Dead” and has not been seen since. Its unknown if Jason’s mom reported him as a missing adult at the time.

    Forgive me for bumping a 5 year old post. I was reminded of Walter Dunson tonight. His son was not convicted for forgery because authorities couldn’t find an example of his signature. I realize this was a long time ago, but due to the fact you mentioned he was a WWI vet, well…hmm…I found an example of his signature in about two seconds. It was taken from his WWI draft registration card. While people’s signatures normally evolve/change/devolve over the years, my findings prove that the powers that be couldn’t be bothered looking very hard. While this info wasn’t available via a quick internet search at that time, they could have requested a copy be mailed to them from where the microfiche reels were housed (the originals were destroyed in a fire).
