Seminole County sheriff’s investigators today released a facial reconstruction image of a man whose skeletal remains were discovered in a wooded area of unincorporated Oviedo almost 20 years ago. Repeated investigative efforts to identify the man over the years have been unsuccessful. Newer technology has now provided us the best representation yet.
On October 7, 1998, workers clearing away brush for a drainage survey in the woods off of S. Econ Circle discovered what appeared to be bones on the ground. From the state of advanced decomposition and other clues, investigators determined the bones had been there a year or more. Despite numerous attempts to learn the man’s identity, this has remained a John Doe case.
The following is a facial reconstruction of a white male in his late 20s to early 40s, between 5’6-5’11 inches tall. New Balance tennis shoes were discovered at the scene along with Quicksilver, Instinct and Speedo brand clothing. Investigators point out these are all popular surf lifestyle clothing brands.
Anyone with information on the identity of this person is asked to call the Seminole County Sheriff’s Office at 407-665-6650 or Crimeline at (800) 423-TIPS (8477), or email Investigator Jennifer Spears at email@example.com<
