  • Case History

    The victim's skeletal remains were found in a desert wash about 1 of a mile west of the end of Ann Road and about of a mile north. It appears he shot himself in the head.

    Based on clothing recovered, it is believed that the victim's death took place during the winter time. It was suggested that during the victim's younger years he was probably around 5'10" but due to severe arthritis, his stature at the time of his death was around 5'8".
