It’s been almost 17 years since the Saguache County Sheriff’s Office recovered the body of an unidentified man, who remains nameless, while those responsible for his death have not been held accountable.
Officials recently released facial reconstruction images of the John Doe, in hopes someone might recognize him and help heat up the cold case.
The man, who could have been between 40 and 60, was found wrapped in a blanket or quilt off Colorado 141 on Oct. 19, 2002. His death was deemed a homicide. The man was estimated to weigh between 225 and 300 pounds, was about 6-feet-5 and had brown hair; ethnicity was not determined. There were no tattoos or obvious scars. He was wearing black boxer shorts and a black Harley Davidson T-shirt from Fort Washington, Maryland.
“Unfortunately, there was no identification, vehicles, or information located with the remains that would not only help investigators to identify the victim, but also locate the person(s) responsible for his murder,” said Saguache County Sheriff Dan Warwick, in a Colorado Bureau of Investigation press release. “It’s a case that the sheriff’s office has actively worked over the years, and I am hopeful someone will come forward to provide a key piece of information to help solve this case.”
