Um, no way. No fracking way.

It seems very unlikely that this man is three foot nine inches tall. That has got to be a typo. Either that or he’s a Little person. The weight is unusually low for a grown man also.

I called the Oakland PD and they gave me the phone number for the investigating officer in Mr. Adkins’s case, but when I called that number he didn’t answer and I couldn’t leave a message because his mailbox was full. Muttergrumble. I hope the guy I spoke to contacts the investigating officer himself and passes on my inquiry about Darriel Adkins’s height.

[EDIT: Well, I’ll be darned. I called the CDOJ database and they said they’d call me back. They did, like five seconds later, and verified that Mr. Adkins really is 3’9 and 105 pounds. Must be dwarfism, then.]

    So are there any missing persons who had dwarfism that you know of?

    I was wondering why your links to dojapp.doj.ca.gov just don’t work for me, so I searched the basic site URL and got a Google cache that says:

    “This system is restricted to authorized users for legitimate Law Enforcement purposes.” http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:lPgRVofDHJMJ:dojapp.doj.ca.gov

    Problem solved I guess.

    Using the search function at the bottom of CharleyProject front page this is the closest to dwarfism I could find, James Butler:
    “He has unusual bone structure and muscle patterns similar to Dwarf Syndrome. ”

      I have no idea why they don’t work for you. They work for me just fine and I’m not authorized law enforcement.

    Darriel Adkins seems like an ultra-obscure case, I can’t find anything, so is that restricted dojapp.doj.ca.gov page the only source?
