Case History
In May 1998, a surveyor was walking through the woods on the back of 6824 Dale Road in Rex. The owner wanted to sell the land and the surveyor was measuring it, walking about 40 yards off the southbound lanes of Interstate 675, between Ga. Highways 42 and 138. He was walking along the inside of a Department of Transportation fence, coming up on an old barb wire fence when he saw a skull in the leaves. It was buried down in the leaves, by some weeds, upside down.
Police uncovered the rest of the bones. The remains were wrapped in insulated, blue and gray Tiger Bay coveralls. Plants were growing through the bones and a season's leaves covered the body.

There was nothing in the pockets -- no driver's license, nothing bearing the dead man's name.
Found at the scene was a corroded bullet shell casing, a heavy chunk of quartz, and a small crack pipe.
Officers scoured the area with metal detectors and found a bullet, a .40-caliber piece of lead, buried a foot into the ground below the body.
The surgical pin in his hip was too old to be tracked. There were no records.
