Vital Statistics

Case History
The victim was found hanging from a tree at the Thorn Creek Nature Preserve, several hundred yards from the roadway at 23450 Western Avenue, in Park Forest, Illinois on October 9, 2008.
The coroner's office checked with local police for missing persons that may have matched, but all of those were ruled out.

Getting DNA extracted from The Hanging Man's bones proved difficult. The lab the coroner's office usually uses was unable to perform the procedures successfully.
Will County Sheriff's evidence technicians were able to get fingerprints from the mummified fingers, but no match was found in any data system. Nicotine was the only drug that was found in his system.
