    On July 14, 1974, the body of an unidentified male was located in a wooded area off of Valencia Road in Aptos, California.

    The decedent is believed to be Caucasian (possibly Hispanic).

    His hair was shoulder length and dark brown with a reddish tint.

    He was found wearing a blue/purple crushable hat (similar to a fisherman’s hat), a long sleeved shirt (red and blue plaid with a Mickey Mouse figure on the front), brown corduroy pants, a brown leather belt with a sliver buckle (size 32), brown socks, and brown work boots.

    NOTE: The shirt had a Mickey Mouse design. That wasn't worn by any men back then, that I can remember. I would think it would stand out for recognizing him.
