Sometimes it takes a storm.

Lt. William Thomas Barry Troy, 29 and a native of New Brunswick, disappeared without a trace on February 25, 1958. He was flying a F2H3-Banshee fighter jet in dense fog for the Royal Canadian Navy along the Florida coast headed for a naval station in Mayport, Florida. He was part of a four-aircraft formation. The other three aircraft landed, but he fell out of formation at some point with others unaware.

The U.S. Navy recovered a helmet and a wheel from his jet, but all were surprised that his body was never recovered and substantial aircraft debris never surfaced. They listed him as "buried at sea." His parents and siblings didn't stop in their search for answers. However, answers finally surfaced nearly six decades later, after Hurricane Irma dispersed on September 13, 2017, that is.

Days later on September 21, Zack Johnson was surveying the damage done by the hurricane. As he drove along a northeast Florida beach a "ball of stuff" along the high water line caught his attention. He says he must have driven by it at least five times without noticing and other rangers drove by it, too. At first he thought it was just jumbled debris until he noticed the military gear - a parachute rigging, a parachute harness, a float coat, bits of metal and survival supplies. Then he noticed the lieutenant's stencil on the back of a coat. He turned the items over to the Mayport NAS.

"It was traumatic for us and we really had no closure," said Dick Troy, 80 at the time of discovery. "My mom and dad grieved for many years. We all did, but a mother has a close attachment to her children, as you know, a special attachment. So they went to the grave without getting anything."

Johnson believes the items were buried for decades beneath sand dunes. He also says it appears that the pilot's parachute didn't open during the crash which brings comfort to brother Dick in that his brother's death may have been quick.

"Thank God the person who discovered it was good enough to do something about it," said Sandra Berry, Troy's younger sister. "If they had just not cared we could still be in the dark." The family hopes to obtain the discovered items for the family to keep as a reminder of their brother. They also look forward to hearing more details from the authorities, when available.

Russell Williams / Re: Russel Williams: crimes and victims
« on: April 27, 2018, 12:27:38 PM »
Vice story claims that forensic psychologists contacted by VICE say Williams wasn't a psychopath. Instead they say he was a man with powerful sexual deviances coupled with a lack of empathy for his victims, who was able to control his urges in order to avoid detection when necessary. A good-working frontal lobe and a simmering cauldron of sexual deviance. Paraphilia. Is this consistent with what the authorities found?

Here's another story worthy of posting about Constable Scott Aikman. Again, thank you belatedly.

Risking Life Undercover

This story was published in December 2016, but I didn't read it until now. Sincere appreciation for people like Toronto Police Const. Scott Aikman for risking his life to go undercover to find answers to the Alexandra Flanagan case. While undercover, his father passed away (he dedicated this award received to his father) and his life was threatened during the trial.  We have to remember these are "jobs" for these people and they do it under such difficult circumstances. Just wanted to say, "thank you."

I just read this story and find it so odd and unusual that so many people were connected to several cases on this site.

Sometimes Next Generation Identification can solve a 30-year-old case

On August 21, 1986 in the 1600 block of East Holt Boulevard, Ontario, CA, police were called to an abandoned Ontario home to investigate the discovery of a body of a sandy-haired young man. At the time, black ink and paper card were used to preserve fingerprints. And, due to decomposition and poor quality prints, the fingerprints were not pristine. Since that time the discovery was referred to as Doe #27-86.

Over the next three decades over 9,000 posters were distributed to schools, businesses, truck and travel stops in California, Arizona and Nevada. A DNA profile was created and shared on many sites, including the National Missing and unidentified Persons System and the FBI's Violent Criminal Offender Program.

Then around March 2017, the FBI would take the poor and partial fingerprints that were taken over 30 years prior and put it through Next Generation Identification, or NGI, to finally give Doe #27-86 his name back. Joseph Pace is now listed as a homicide victim. And, authorities are a bit closer to being able to solve his case. NGI compared the fingerprints of the body found to other fingerprints taken when Joseph Pace was arrested for being drunk in public. It was a match. Records indicate Pace graduated from Needles High School only a few days before his body was discovered.

Russell Johnson

Besani, is there any idea of what may have caused the disappearance? Was he happy at work? Personal life? Dating sites? Finanical crisis? Struggles? Any different routines or friends lately? Is there anything that the family of friends may know that can help people look for him? What kind of work does he do?

Barrie / Re: Human Bones found on Meaford Shoreline
« on: January 05, 2018, 12:22:30 AM »
It seems to be about one hour away from where a skull was found in 2013 on Northern Trail, see http://www.unsolvedcanada.ca/index.php?topic=7035.msg106699#msg106699.  I wonder if the identity of the skull was ever made, or what gender determined.

The name that comes to mind for me is Case #   20120020OPP  Name   Kelly Nichelle COLEMAN.

She was on her way to Own Sound which is between Northern Trail and Meaford. Reviewing the Nichelle's file, it says they feel her case is suspicious, and that "Several items have been identified and are awaiting further examination" but they never said what was identified. Could it have been the skull on Northern Trail, and can the foot at Meaford in some way be one and the same? 

I've always hoped for Nichelle's friends, especially G.D.,  that she was found. She has been troubled by it for a while. In Nichelle's file, it mentions a person of possible interest. I wonder where he lives and frequents and if it is around the area.

Did we ever have an article that talked about the symbolism of the different ways in which a person is killed and what that means? Messages sent?
