This man had a testicular implant - which is something I had never heard of. I wonder if contacting someone who is an expert in that field might lead to more information about the Preacher.

Hi Leigh,

Interesting observation. You might find this information useful in understanding the reasons for a testicular implant:

Testicular Prostheses: Development and Modern Usage
D Bodiwala, DJ Summerton, and TR Terry

"The absence of a testis from the scrotal sac represents a psychologically traumatic experience in males of any age from childhood to the elderly.1 Testicular loss may arise following orchidectomy for torsion, mal-descent, trauma, infection or malignancy. Testicular absence is seen in cryptorchidism from either an undescended or ectopic testis. It may also be a result of testicular agenesis or atrophy following intra-uterine torsion (vanishing testis syndrome). Such patients may, at some stage, request the implantation of an artificial testis for cosmetic or psychological reasons. This is more likely in patients who have lost a testis compared to those born with an absent testis. Female-to-male trans-sexuals may also seek a testicular prosthesis as part of their gender re-alignment surgery."

I'm sure LE has followed up on the implants to see if they could find the maker records and/or doctor records of said procedure. Keep in mind LE's time and resources are always precedent in matters like this.

Good eye for the detail Leigh! I hope you found that information an interesting read.

Thank you for your time and dedication helping to bring resolution to America's Unidentified.

All My Best,
