We will update as we find more info. If anyone knows family, please ask them to reach out. Veteran Doe and I would like to fund raise to give him a proper burial off of Hart Island.
_______________________________
APRIL 20, 2018 - he is obviously identified, no information has been released, my guess is that since there was no crime committed, LE gave the family the option on whether to release his name or not just like with Lyle Stevik. Possible he was finally ID'd via the new finger print method. Praying that one day I can add his name to the memorial. Veteran Doe and I would like to fund raise to help the family give him a proper burial. If you're family, I'm an advocate with references. I would keep your info confidential.
JANUARY 5, 2017 - His NamUs profile gives a permission error this morning. Veteran Doe and I are praying he's been identified! Harlem Marine John Doe - Elaborate USMC - Death Before Dishonor - EGA Eagle, Globe, Anchor tattoo in blue on left upper arm, done in Twentynine Palms CA, between 1994 and 1996. It indicates both a connection to Force Reconnaissance and Explosive Ordnance Disposal - EOD Company.
