The lock is yellow

I submitted a request to unlock it
It is still locked,

When someone abandons a profile why doesn't it become unlocked.

Does it just become locked in as a dead profile?

It could take up to 24 hours a volunteer team member looks at each request. It may take some time.

If you want to adopt a locked profile, James, you should send an email to info@wikitree.com .

Sometimes an open orphan profile becomes locked after an edit, even if the person is deceased. I believe it is caused by the interaction of the privacy levels of attached profiles.
