America's oldest missing-person case could be drawing to a close in Portland.
In 1926, a 75-year-old Tigard man took a bus to Portland to visit his daughter. Marvin Clark, a former town marshal, was last seen at a bus terminal in downtown Portland. He then disappeared.
Loggers found a complete skeleton in 1986 in northwest Multnomah County alongside a .32-caliber pistol and shoes known as "police loafers." The skull had a bullet hole in the temple.
Now, the state's forensic anthropologist has used DNA analysis to connect the skull with Clark. If confirmed, it would solve the oldest missing-person case in the nation's medical-examiner database. Learn the details in this Oregonian article.
