Case History
Crab fishermen on the Gulf of St. Lawrence hauled up the naked body of a man believed to have been floating in the icy waters at least two or three months. He was found in the water 60 kilometers off the coast of New Brunswick. Currents could have carried him down from Montreal, from the seaway.
An autopsy in May 1980, indicated the man drowned.
Police have no idea how he got into the water. They are also suspicious of the fact he had no clothes.
He was believed to have been in his early 40s, but the age range is anywhere between 30 and 50. He is probably Caucasian, possibly with central or eastern European ancestry. There was nothing on the body to aid in identification, no clothes, Jewelry, tattoos or scars.
With no leads as to his identity, the man was buried in a cemetery on New Brunswick's Arcadian peninsula, under a white cross bearing the name Joseph.
