Case History
The victim was located near Highway 47 and County Road 5, on private property on August 17, 2003, when an excavator discovered a skull in a load of earth. Investigators discovered human remains at the original burial site and the site where the earth was being dumped.
The body, which was buried about three feet deep, could have been on the site since the 1970's. Investigators are treating the case as a homicide though they have no evidence of the manner of death. The depth of the grave, the location near a main highway leading out of the cities, is suspicious.
Investigators have reviewed available missing person records and interviewed area residents with no success. The only other clue is a man's watch found near the remains.
The structure of the face and the dental reconstruction are very precise. Other facial details, such as the size of the ears and nose, and hair and eye color, are not known and reflect the best guess of the artist.
