Elmer Crawford

Elmer Crawford brutally murdered his wife and children in Australia in 1970, and then disappeared. An internet crime sleuth named Debra Cashion thought the picture of an unidentified dead man posted on the DOE Network resembled the picture produced by the Australian police of how Crawford might look today (some people seem to have a gift for facial recognition). More scientific checking has confirmed the hunch. Crawford has a living daughter in England (and maybe a half-sister in Florida), and a DNA comparison to confirm the identity is in the works.
