View Full Version : An Opinon needed on a case

12-01-2006, 10:02 AM
This is my third cousin, Arden Bogart Jr.

He disappeared Feb. 11, 1988. Although this was not stated on the Doe Network he was last reported as being seen in Needles, CA. I then found this John Doe that turned up in San Dimas, CA about 2 years later:


Do you think there could be a connection or am I grasping at straws? The only thing I doubt is the weight. Arden is listed as 170 and the JD was listed as 129. But, there was 2 years in between.

Please discuss.

Very interesting. I wouldn't say I necessarily think it could be him but it definitely should be checked out. They have dentals and dna so they would be able to determine definitely whether it was him or not. He was last seen in CA so thats similar, do you know if he had any clothes matching any of those described? As far as the weight descripancy no doubt they found this person after they had already decomposed somewhat so the weight and height are just estimates. I would definitely contact the doe network with your cousins name and I'm sure they will look into it. Keep us updated!

Well, nobody in my family really knows that much, and those who do are either dead or dont want to talk about it so I'm kinda on my own, and as far as contacting the doe network, I've emailed the 2 people in the New Mexico area, one never wrote back and the other stopped writing back after a few emails. I've also tried calling the Santa Fe police, but I always get answering machines and my calls go unreturned. If anyone can help in any way, please let me know.
