Can A Picture Lead to The Identity of Unidentified Man?

An unidentified white male between the ages of 30 to 50 was found deceased near a forested area by the Wiltwyck Cemetery. The area is located behind Pine Grove Avenue in the town of Kingston, New York. The deceased had died from a gunshot wound to the head and been dead for several days. It is believed that he was between the weight of 185 to 205 pounds (84 to 93 kilograms) and around 5'11 to 6'3 feet/inches and around 185 centimeters. He also had brown hair, a scar on his abdomen (possibly an appendectomy) and he was uncircumcised. He had also had a good amount of dental work on his teeth which included a maxillary fixed bridge that was porcelain fused to white metal.

Perhaps the biggest clue as to a possible identity of this man is a picture that was found of a man posing with a male infant. Could this have been the deceased man? It is possible that he was from Europe.

If you have any information as to who this person may be, please contact the Ulster County Medical Examiner's Office at (845)340-3323.

T-Shirt May Hold Clues to Identity of Murder Victim

Boston Police have a 2 decade old mystery on their hands in trying to identify the killer(s) and the name of an unidentified woman found on August 1st, 1994. She had been found in a wooded area near the Ennerking and Turtle Pond Parkways in the Hyde Park section of Boston. Police think may have been between the ages of 20 to 30 years old. She was white, with brown hair, between five foot one to three inches tall and weighed around 120 to 130 pounds. An autopsy revealed that she died from head trauma and was a victim of foul play. She may have been dead for several months up to a few years. There is no composite sketch of her but her clothing that she was found in may provide a clue. She wore Jordache sneakers and S.F.O. jeans. It is the T-shirt she was wearing which could provide clues as to this Jane Doe may be. It was a Fruit of the Loom brand shirt that had a large baseball image and the word "SQUEEZE" in red letters. On the reverse side, it had the words "PLAY".

Anyone with information on this woman’s name and murder can contact the Detective John F. Cronin from the Cold Case Unit at Boston Police Homicide at the phone number of (617) 343-5837. You can also call anonymously into the CrimeStoppers Tip Line at 1-(800)-494-TIPS. Those with information about this case can also text the word ‘TIP’ to CRIME (27463).

Does a Piece of Clothing Hold The Secret to The Identity of an Unknown Murder Victim

On March 25, 2000 in Clinton, Maryland, the remains of a woman were found. The victims identity is unknown and it is believed that she was killed by blunt force trauma. It is estimated that the victim had been dead for about a month and that her age could have ranged from 15 to 30 years of age. She was of African descent, with brown eyes and black hair. She wore 12 inch hair extensions. Items found on the deceased victim include a jean jacket and plastic Tweety Bird wristwatch. There was also the initial C.S written on a tag on a piece of clothing. Perhaps the most telling clue of this woman's identity is that she was found wearing a T Shirt with the logo "1995 Special Olympics World Games, New Haven, CT, USA". Is it possible that this woman was a participant in the 1995 Special Olympics in New Haven. Could the initials C.S. be hers or a family members? If you know who this individual might be, please contact the Prince George's County Sheriff's Office at 301-772-4925. The picture of the victim is a clay recreation of what the victim probably looked like. For additional information on this case please click on the link for the Doe Network.

 

A Practical Joke or Something More Sinister?

It was February 26, 1986 when a couple was walking in New Haven, Connecticut and noticed a bizarre site in the shallow part of the West River. A pair of human legs. The Medical Examiner determined that they belonged to a white male who was 20 to 30 years old and must been between five foot ten and six feet tall. His shoe size was 10 1/2 inches and the bottom of the feet were scratched off. It was also determined that the legs were surgically removed after the death of the unknown male. The remains could have been in the water for up to a week due to the cold temperature of the water that winter. The legs were absent of embalming fluid and in excellent condition with no signs of disease. Police felt it was unlikely that the remain came from a funeral home. It is possible that the remains could have been been from a cadaver from a medical school. A sick practical joke. But it was never determined if that was the case. It could have also been a homicide that someone wanted to cover up. To this day the remains have never been identified and a cause and manner of death never determined. IF you have any information about this case, please call the New Haven Police Department at (203)946-6316.

Who is this Young Child?

More than fifteen years later, he remains unidentified. Many questions surround him. How old is he? Where is he from? Who is he? And why is no one looking for him?

His remains were discovered when a small group of people were walking through a wooded area near a subdivision off Clifton Church Road in DeKalb County, Georgia on February 26th of 1999. When his remains were examined they determined it belonged to a child of African-American ancestry and was between 5 and 7 years old. His remains were probably outside for about three to six months. The shocking thing they found out about the unidentified child, Law Enforcement nicknamed, "Dennis" was that he was well cared for and wore a good quality of the clothes. Medical Examiners also found cough medicine in his system but are not sure if the child was sick with any specific conditions. When he was found he was wearing a new pair of size 11 Timberland brown suede boots. He was also found in denim jeans and a long-sleeve hooded pullover shirt; the body of the shirt was blue plaid while the sleeves and hood were a dark blue thermal color. Other characteristics of "Dennis" was that he was around 50 pounds and around four feet tall. Medical Examiners were not able to determine how the young boy died. IT is very likely that he may have not been from the area and could even be from the Carribean. If you have information as to who "Dennis" is please contact the DeKalb County Medical Examiners Office at 404-508-3500. This case can be solved.....

Four Decades Later, who is Mr. X?

For several decades, the Rhode Island Medical Examiner's Office has been trying to solve the identity of a possible unidentified male whose partial remains were found on the afternoon of March 10, 1977. He had been referred to in a newspaper article as Mr. X. He was found when a fishing vessel that was 31 miles off Point Judith hauled in the decomposed remains that been submerged in the murky deep water. The remains were partial in that legs, hands, forearms and even part of the head was missing. It is believe that he may have been between the ages of 30 to 70 but it is possible he could have been younger. There was one interesting characteristic of the body, there was a .22 caliber bullet was lodged in the upper left hip. Police were not sure if the bullet was from before his death (a possible war wound) or if the person was killed by the bullet or shot when he was already dead.

If you have any information about who this man may be, contact the Rhode Island Office of the State Medical Examiners at 401-222-5500.

A Hunting Trip Turns Up Something Interesting

On October 9, 2006, two bow hunters looking for deer made an unusual discovery. In a marshy area where the Salmon and Connecticut Rivers merge in Haddam, Connecticut named "Cove Meadow Peninsuela", one of the hunters found the skull partially submerged in the ground. It was later determined that the skull was that of a white male between the ages of 35 and 45 years of age. No other bones were found near the area where the skull was found. Police are not sure if the skull washed there from flooding from the northern part of the rivers, or if the victim died or was placed there.

Looking for Clues in Twenty Year Mystery of a John Doe

For two decades police and the community of Clinton, Wisconsin have been trying to find the name of a young man found in a wooded area of Turtle Creek in their town. It was hunters who discovered the remains on August 26, 1995 of man believed to be between 17 to 20 years old. Medical experts believed he may have died a year prior during the fall/winter of 1994. He was believed to be caucasian, five foot six and around 140 pounds. He may have lived in Minnesota, Michigan or Wisconsin.

His eye color could not be determined but he had long brown hair that went down to his collar.

But he was described as a white male around the age of thirty. He is buried in Hillside Cemetery.

A Gruesome Discovery With Few Clues To Go On

Police in the Connecticut town of Milford are still trying to discover the secret behind a gruesome discovery found near the banks of the Housatonic River in 1994. A torso was found dumped at the end of Oronoque Road, and has yet to be identified. The torso was found March 24, 1994, in a secluded neighborhood near the river banks.

Newborn Baby Never Identified, Killer Unknown

It was a discovery no one wants to make. On January 24, 1974, an eleven year old boy opened a suitcase at 4:30 pm near a building at the corner of Ely Avenue and Wilson Avenues in Norwalk. Inside a suitcase was the body of a newborn female infant believed to be either white or Hispanic. A Medical Examiner declared the death was as result of a homicide and that she had been deceased for 2-3 days. There are few clues as to who killed and may have given birth to the dead child. A half an hour earlier, a white or Hispanic female had been seen walking down Ely Avenue carrying the same type of briefcase. She was described as being Caucasian (possibly Italian) or Hispanic. She is believed to be in her early 20’s,with dark hair, and a medium complexion. She was also described as being well dressed as well. The suitcase also had a brand name of ”Jesus A.

Killers Convicted but Real Name of Victim Still Unknown

It was May 30, 1974 when the Connecticut State Police went to a house on Shewville Road in the then quiet town of Ledyard. They had been given a tip about two murders and dug up a shallow grave in a wooded area behind the house. The decomposed bodies of a man and a woman were found. The man was successfully identified as convicted bank robber, Gustavous Lee Carmichael. Carmichael was a serial bank and had even escaped custody from jail. He and the woman (who was his girlfriend) used the aliases, Dirk and Lorraine Stahl before their murders on December 31, 1970.

Richard DeFreitas and Donald Brant were convicted of the murders. The reason why they killed the two was a result of concerns that the unidentified woman (Lorraine Stahl) would divulge details of the illegal activities of Carmichael’s.

The victim is described as being in her early twenties with red hair. She was about five foot one and between 110 and 115 pounds. Police believe that she may have been from either New York or possibly from Maine. She may have also driven a 1964 Green Oldsmobile with either Massachusetts or Maine plates. Pictured above is a ring found on the female victim. If you know who this unidentified female is, please contact the Connecticut Medical Examiner at 860-679-3980. As of June 2012, Defreitas is still alive and serving a life sentence in prison.

Horrible Discovery in the Woods

On March 13, 1975,Two boys playing in the woods in East Lyme came across a horrible discovery in a bag. It was the body of newborn baby male child with his umbilical chord and placenta still attached. The baby was found near a stone wall behind 39 Park Place not far from a housing project. It was later determined that the white male child was the victim of a homicide due to asphyxiation. The child is referred to as Baby Boy Doe. Sadly, he was not the only unidentified child to be left in East Lyme. In 1941 an unknown female child no more than 3 days old was found in the Black Point Creek, she had died from a cerebral hemorrhage. In early November of 1976, the body of a female infant (possibly a late term fetus) was found in a gravel pile near Grassy Hill Road and the Nehantic State Forest. The deceased child in this case was given the name of Baby Doe and the manner of death in her case is unknown.

If you know the parents or siblings of any of these children are please call the Connecticut State Police at 860-685-8190.

Who was Victim of Homicidal Drowning?

It was May 13th, 1977 when the body of a black adult male was found wrapped in a burlap bag by the U.S. 74/76 bridge in Brunswick County in North Carolina. He was found in the Brunswick River in the town of Leland. Police believe foul play was involved and the man was rolled up alive and purposely drowned. Police believe the victim fought valiantly trying to get out of the burlap bag. The victim was naked except for a pair of blue socks. It is possible that the victim was dumped in the water upriver. He could have also been dumped in the Cape Fear River near Elizabethtown and Fayetteville. It is believed the victim may have been between the ages of 18 to 30 years old.

If you have any idea who this victim is or who killed him, please call the North Carolina Office of the Medical Examiner at 919-743-9000.
