Overview of 2008 Wayne County John Doe
The decedent was wrapped in a comforter or blanket, tied with an electrical cord and partially buried in a shallow grave in a back alley off Mansfield Street. His death is believed to be drug-related.
Identifying this man may be the key to solving the cases of three other sets of human remains found in the same alley within a few days of finding this John Doe.
The four slayings are connected and are believed to have been committed by the same person.
