Case History
The victim was located in thick mangroves at the end of a dirt road in the area of Fourth Street N and 115th Avenue, in St. Petersburg, Florida on March 13, 1981.

He was buried in a shallow grave with his knee exposed, near a waterway. He had four gunshot wounds to the head, (3) .22 caliber and (1) .32 caliber which was behind the left ear.

Detectives consulted optometry organizations. Over the years, they found more than two dozen missing persons reports involving people with glass eyes. None were their victim. They ran fingerprints through databases, but nothing matched. In 1983, investigators exhumed the body and used the skull to mold clay into a likeness of the dead man's face.
The "St. Michael" brand pants were only sold in England and the Bahamas at the time.
