Overview of 1993 New Castle County John Doe

A motorist found the remains of the victim in a wooded area off of Marsh Road, east of Carr Road, near Interstate 95. He was blindfolded, wrapped, and dumped along the roadside. No matches were made in national fingerprint databases. Missing persons reports were examined, but they failed to reveal an individual consistent with the victim.

Estimated Date of Death: 2 weeks State of Remains: Decomposed Cause of Death: Homicide

Dentals: Available. X-rays and photographs are available. Maxillary incisors were "shovel-shaped". There were generalized wear facets in varying degrees on all teeth. Heavy tartar and tobacco deposits. No evident restorations or existing decay. Wear facets and heavy deposits suggest individual was probably over 30 years of age. Fingerprints: Available with FBI IAFIS, high-resolution scans available with DE-OCME, and copies available with NamUs. DNA: mtDNA and nucDNA available with UNT (ref #10-2540).

Clothing: Light-colored Ralph Lauren polo jacket, short sleeved T-shirt, tan Bugle Boy trousers (size 28 medium), white boxer shorts with turquoise squared design, bikini-type light-colored jockey shorts, and brown or tan, leather-like slip-on shoes with rubber soles. A seven-digit number was written in one shoe, possibly the former phone number of a Domino’s Pizza in Brick, New Jersey. Jewelry: Unknown. Additional Personal Items: In the right front pants pocket was a piece of tissue wrapped around with three unspent .38 caliber bullets.
