MP of the week: Alexis Dillard

This week’s featured missing person is Alexis Dillard, who is male. A KU senior, he vanished on December 11, 1992, after a night out drinking with his fraternity brothers in North Lawrence, Kansas. There’s a theory that he drowned in the Kansas River, possibly while trying to swim across. He was 22.

And yes, I’m aware that suspect Pedro Hernandez was convicted of Etan Patz’s murder and I’m aware I have to re-write his entire casefile. That’ll be my task for tomorrow.

    What do you think about Pedro Hernandez being convicted? I have my doubts and am not confident police had the right man.

      I don’t know much about it yet — I’ll research it more thoroughly tomorrow for revising Etan’s casefile — but my initial impression is that the case against Hernandez is weak. Jose Ramos strikes me as being a more likely suspect. But the jury was in the courtroom and heard the evidence; I have only read articles. I certainly HOPE they got the right guy.

    I notice he is not in NamUs nor, is there a description of what he was last wearing other than shoes. I believe I may have a match for his remains, the links are all broke or the emails do not work for Sedgwick County where I found the UR John Doe, I emailed the Chief of Police in Lawrence. Hopefully, he will take action. I find matches all the time and have to pursue the follow ups and push these UR to MP’s through, it’s pretty frustrating. I’ll let you know what happens. If you want to get him in NamUs that would be great, follow up with his family if you can to get DNA in.

      I don’t submit cases to NamUs, but there are plenty of other people hanging out in the comments section who do.

        Well, I will try to do it this weekend if no one else chimes in, it’s pointless to follow these cases if they are not in NamUs now way to link them, we have to work on getting them all in, there are so many, so we can find closure for the deceased.
