Sergeant Andraychak-

Hello. I filed this request about Steven Allen Davis, because i've long thought that Mr. Davis resembles a John Doe who was recovered in Las Vegas in February of 1987. This is NamUS UP# 8137. This is a link to the NamUs profile: https://identifyus.org/cases/8137

I believe that I had previously sent messages to Clark County Coroner's Office, and the NamUs contact. Mr. Davis is listed in NamUs, although without a DNA sample submitted to CODIS, which means it would be difficult to confirm or deny. I thought there would be no harm in filing a FOIA request, especially considering that the Davis disappearance is now 30 years old.

FYI: according to information I found on a website, Davis was declared dead on November 1st of 1986: http://death-records.mooseroots.com/l/213729265/Steven-Allan-Davis

Davis makes frequent appearances on websites like reddit and websleuths, with people comparing him to John Does discovered throughout the US. Could you please pass my suspicions about the connection of Davis to the John Doe in Nevada to the case inspector for this disappearance? I would greatly appreciate it.
