A hunter scouting for deer on September 3, 1995, found the decedent's skeletal remains in a wooded area across from 4533 Old Vincennes Road, off Interstate 64 near U.S. 150 in Floyds Knob. Floyd County is approximately 5 miles from Louisville, Kentucky.
Investigators believe information obtained fro the skeleton could easily lead to the man's identity if it's seen by people who knew him. The fact that a missing person might not be within the age and height estimates should not rule them out as a possible match.
He was buried in the Fairview Cemetery in New Albany on November 22, 1995.
