General Discussion / National Dental record registry
« on: February 15, 2013, 09:12:51 AM »
I was thinking the other day about what would help in identifying our loved ones that are found but not yet identified.  I have been compiling a list of people that have dentals but not yet matched.  I was speaking with a lead investigator for the O.P.P and have found the only way for them to match dentals is by finding the dentist that did the work, and where the work was done.  I had asked them why they do not have a national dental registry for them to search?.  He was certain that is because no one has put one together. I thought to get the word out there is this something that people feel would be helpful or would it be more or an intrusion to privacy?.  We could make the data base to only be accessed by police and investigators.  By doing so this would be a lot of work at first but I feel well worth it.  Once we have put the dental records out there on it we would simply have dentist upload the records on there own account by there office staff. We could then allow police from anywhere search records from where they are stationed, and cut cost in travel and daily expenses like gas,food, and vehicle maintenance.  We could raise awareness for the need of a national dental registry just like DNA or finger prints that is already in place.   This would allow anyone who is found with dental work done including fillings,teeth pulled, braces and all other dental work done.  The biggest question is do people feel this would be beneficial or intrusion to privacy?
I feel we should have one and that this could potentially ID more remains found that have dental work.  I would say with the proper security features in place we can limit the amount of people accessing the records and have less room for error. Only dentist and police would be able to place dental features on the data base. Please post your thoughts.

General Discussion / Toyota Remains???
« on: January 12, 2013, 07:15:33 PM »
This story makes no sense to me. I can only imagine how you escape your vehicle, and you have no idea who the passanger was.  This is all the information I have come across.

Summary This female was a passenger in a small 2-door Toyota vehicle involved in a collision with a transport truck. The initial contact was a rear-end collision resulting in a vehicle fire. The driver was able to remove himself from the vehicle. The remains were found in the passenger seat.

Case # 20050010OPP
Date Located 22 Apr 2004 
Age (Estimated) 35-50
Sex Female
Features Anthropological examination determined skeletal morphology indicates Mongoloid. Possibly mixed Mongoloid/Caucasian, Polynesian, Inuit or Native North American.
Personal Property   
Location Toronto, Ontario Highway 400 and Highway 401 
Agency Toronto Police Service

I can not understand how someone has a passanger that they have no idea their name or where they came from.  The only conclusion I can come across is the driver picked up someone on the road, sex trade worker or an abduction victim. I don't understand why you wouldn't just release the passanger seat belt and yours then pull them through the driver door.
Maybe its just me, but this dosen't make any sense to me.

Has anyone heard of this story.

Toronto / Canadian Special Appeal Do you know this Man?
« on: January 08, 2013, 07:13:09 PM »
I came across this today, and went through the Toronto post and did not find this. I am posting in case he is not on here and should be. This man has been in the hospital for almost 13 years. I find this really sad up to the point of being mugged I was assume he was living a normal life. Do you know this man or have seen other photos of him, perhaps in missing files. I would also consider names that sound like Philip Staufen, as I am unsure how clear the nurses understand him.

.Do you know him?

5 feet 10 inches tall, weighs about 140 pounds. 
His hair is naturally dark brown and he has brown eyes 
He doesn't have any tattoo's, distinguishing marks, or scars.

His identity has been a mystery ever since he was admitted to a hospital in Toronto, Canada in November 1999 after being violently mugged. He says he has no memory of who he is. But hospital staff named him "Philip Staufen" after he blurted out the name during treatment.

Please respect his privacy. If you can help or know who he is, please make contact as below: Any Canadian Police Officer OR

Additional Info from THE ARMCHAIR DETECTIVE:
July 14, 2001
A young man suffering from amnesia, as a result of a violent mugging in November 1999, is in a hospital in Toronto Canada and the police are anxious for help in identifying him. He speaks with English/Australian accent and speaks a number of European Languages. What is interesting also is that he refers to the boot of a car rather the "trunk" and about wearing a jumper rather than a "sweather". The hospital staff are calling him Philip Staufen after he blurted out the name but his identity remains a mystery. He has no memory of who he is. You can see more details and a photo on the website.(ALSO ON THIS PAGE - SEE LINK) He is more than likely a missing person from somewhere.

Winnipeg - Before 1990 / Lloyd Schnurr 1972 murder
« on: December 16, 2012, 12:19:15 AM »
I have been seeking information about the murder of my grandfather in 1972 after moving to Manitoba.  I have been unable to find any information pertaining to this case.  Here is what the family knows.
  My grandfather was known to frequently visit local bars. After picking up his pay in 1972 he was badly beaten to his death, to the point he was I.d by dental records.  His body was returned to the family and is now resting in the Fermosa Ontario cemetery. It is not known how many people were involved in his death or why. We assume it was to rob him of his pay.
I am his granddaughter and my grandmother refuses to talk of the case as she has never found closer.  I was wondering if anyone remembers this event. Or how I could find out further information on this case. His name Lloyd Schnurr died in 1972. Manitoba police force responded to the discovery of his body.  I appreciate any help you can offer.
