Unidentified Wiki

Guadelupe Segovia "Lupe" Gaona (born June 16, 1960) was a young man found shot to death in Kingston, Oklahoma. He was identified in November 2017.


Gaona was last seen in Grand Praire, Texas, on November 27, 1984, but wasn't reported missing until two years later due to rumors that he was in a witness protection program. U.S. Marshalls wasn't able to substantiate the claim and he was reported missing. Few details were available regarding his disappearance.

On February 23, 1985, Gaona's nude and decomposed body was discovered near Kingston, Oklahoma, lying on his right side and caught on a fallen tree and rubble on a country road. He died from a gunshot wound to the head. It was estimated that he died 4 months prior to discovery.


In 2016, a Reddit user compared the unidentified body in Kingston to Gaona and listed several similarities. The match was confirmed via DNA in November 2017.
