Overview of 2015 Gwinnett County John Doe

On July 21, 2015, Buford Sewer Authority workers clearing an easement along a pipeline on Centerville Drive near Suwanee Creek in Buford discovered a fully intact skull and several other human bones scattered in the area. The decedents cause of death could not be established but the medical examiner theorized that he may have been associated with the contractors responsible for the construction of nearby subdivisions.

There was no evidence of trauma and no clothing or personal items were found with the remains.

A forensic anthropologist initially thought the remains belonged to a Caucasian male between the ages of 25-40, but DNA testing suggested the decedent was Hispanic or Native American.
