CompositeOn April 6th 2006 this agency recovered the skeletal remains of an unidentified male subject. With assistance from the NJ State Police Forensic Anthropologist and a Sketch Artist, the composite drawing shown here was made. A suspected description of the male is described as follows:

White male, light colored hair, missing upper central left tooth, estimated height of 5’8” to 5’10”, estimated age of 45-65 years old (at estimated time of death prior to 2005), location of death was the Fort Lee NJ Section of the Palisades Parkway (on the Englewood Cliffs border). There were 2 watches recovered as well. One is a Field and Stream and the other is a Pierre Cardin. Both shown here and we believe that one may belong to the victim.

There are also healed right side rib fractures and it is possible that he walked with a limp. It is also possible that this subject experienced chronic back pain and arthritis.
