Human Remains Found In 1982 Identified As Frank Little Jr. of The R&B Group The O’Jays

The remains of a man had been missing for nearly 40 years, but thanks to DNA Doe Project, the remains have been identified as that of Frank Little Jr — a former guitarist and songwriter for the R&B group The O’Jays.

The Grio:

The partial remains of Frank Little Jr. had been discovered in February 1982 in a garbage bag in Twinsburg, Ohio, but they were not identified until the DNA Doe Project, working with local authorities, used investigative genetic genealogy to locate potential relatives of the young man known for 39 years as Twinsburg John Doe 1982.

In a statement, a representative for the band told CNN Little “came with us when we first ventured out of Cleveland and traveled to Los Angeles, but he also was in love with a woman in Cleveland that he missed so much that he soon returned back to Cleveland after a short amount of time.”
They added that they “wish his family and friends closure to what appears to be a very sad story.” Little reportedly had a daughter who died in 2012, and a son police are seeking to notify.

According to a cousin of Little, Margaret O’Sullivan, who spoke to a local news outlet about DNA Doe Project contacting her:

“I said yes. I have a cousin name Frankie Little is missing”. “We don’t know what happened to him. We always wondered what happened, so we don’t know what happened to Frankie at all.”

Twinsburg Detective Eric Hendershott also had this to say:

“He had a life, and ultimately he ended up here in Twinsburg, with his life taken by another.”

The question now begs who killed Little Jr? Did it have something to do with the woman he left the O’Jays for? Netflix or Amazon Video is going to have to do a documentary on this.
