Database tool seeks to ID unknown dead

System a resource for investigators

By Jim Balloch
Knoxville News-Sentinel

He was a black man, probably in his 30s or 40s, when someone robbed him of his life - and his name - more than 30 years ago. His body was left in a heavily wooded area of Mascot, covered with leaves, brush and limbs freshly cut from a nearby tree. Animals had brushed the vegetation aside. His skeletal remains were found Jan. 12, 1982, about 600 yards off Clear Springs Road near Mine Road, a remote site probably known to whoever dumped the body, investigators theorize.

In life, the victim had stood about 5 feet 10 inches tall. In death, he wore a blue pullover shirt, dark trousers, red and white socks. There was a pair of size nine zip-up shoes on his feet. There was a .38-caliber bullet wound in the back of his head. He had no identification or possessions.
