    Residents driving through the southwest Volusia area found the victim's nude body at Maytown Road near Gobler's Lodge Road in a rural area five miles east of Osteen.

    His head and hands were missing and have never been recovered. He had a cord tied around his ankles and it appeared he had been dragged behind a vehicle.

    In 2007, the investigation revealed the victim may be from South Florida, but an official identification has not been made.
