Overview of 2009 Monongalia County John Doe

A man preparing a field for deer season discovered the decedent's decomposed remains, lying next to an overturned flatbed dump truck. The discovery took place 300 yards off of Route 19 south, near Beverly Hills Florist. The field had last been mowed in July.

Investigators found a Georgia ID card with the remains. While they believe the picture is of the decedent they are not sure the information is correct. They ran the name on the card, Pablo Hernandez Cruz, through various databases but found no matches. No one at the address listed on the ID knew who the man was. Also found with the remains were phone numbers and personal effects, none of which led to the man's identity.
