Sleuths give names to graves of unknowns
A number of amateur sleuths have taken it upon themselves to find names for the graves of the anonymous dead.
One such detective is Todd Matthews, of Tennessee, who began his quest with the grave marker of someone only known as “Tent Girl.”
Through researching forensic records, Internet chat rooms, the use of DNA and other records, he was able to identify this woman who had gone missing 30 years earlier.
But he is not alone. There is a nationwide group of people who have formed the Doe Network, all dedicated to giving names to the unknown dead, and in some cases, helping law enforcement identify missing-person cases.
