Case History
Remains discovered in a wooded area approximately 125 feet south of the roadway at Interstate 10 (Eastbound) at Mile Marker 349, by a road survey crew.

On June 11, 1998, approximately one month prior to discovery of the remains, an unknown individual wearing the same clothes and matching the description of the deceased was observed walking along I-10, acting ill and disoriented.
When authorities responded to assist, the individual insisted he was OK and then fled into the woods.
This incident occurred approximately 50 yards west of where the remains were later found.
