MP of the week: Stanley Chandler

So yesterday although I changed the missing person of the week on the actual Charley Project I was basically too tired to write an entry for this blog, still recovering from the stomach bug thing. Here it is now:

This week’s featured missing person is Stanley Gene Chandler, last seen leaving his mom’s home for his own. This was in Seattle, Washington on May 18, 1990 and Chandler was 23 at the time. He’s described as black, with black hair, brown eyes and scars on his left hand, right leg and above his left eyebrow. For a man he’s on the small side, 5’4 and 150 pounds.

As Chandler was involved in the drug trade, foul play is possible in this case. If still alive he’d be 55 today.

    Regarding Thomas Gatlin III, strange thing is that in his father’s obituary from 2010, it says that he was preceded in death by his son, Thomas Gatlin. How could Thomas Gatlin III have died BEFORE his father (who died in 2010) and then have gone missing in 2020?

      Sometimes if a child doesn’t live long, and the parents have another of the same sex, they name the new baby after the deceased one. It was much more common in times past than currently, probably cause more kids died.

      Or some people like a name so much they give it to multiple kids. Like George Foreman the boxer and all his sons named George. I think his daughter is named Georgetta too.

      Or you have the wrong man’s obituary.
