Well you don't want to make things easy for us... any chance of knowing your aunt's name? OK, from your profile I can see it's Joan Link but try to put yourself in our shoes for a moment. Presumably David was born in the late 1950s? Did he have any children with your aunt? Any family members that she remembers meeting? If he really was in a witness protection scheme under a false name then I think you're out of luck.
Yes my aunts name is Joan Link they had my cousin Dakota in 1987 and all I know is that I was told my uncle David Lee Russell was in the WITSEC apparently he witnessed a crime and the authorities put him in there I don't know his birthrate or where he was born or even where he died I know him abd my aunt divorced before 2001 in Missouri then he moved somewhere else after that I have no clue
