    newsEngin.16535575_model.jpg The skeleton of a man found with some articles of clothing now has a face to help investigators determine who died in Cherokee County in 2013.

    Kelly Lawson, a forensic artist with the Georgia Bureau of Investigation, created a three-dimensional model.
    The facial reconstruction Lawson completed on the skull on an African-American man belongs to someone between 40 and 60 years old. Lawson said the reconstruction should be viewed as an approximation and anyone who thinks the man looks familiar should call police.

    The remains led investigators to believe the man was approximately 5-foot-7 to 6-foot-1, with a light brown complexion. His body was found in October 2013.

    “This individual likely died sometime between February and July of 2013 and could possibly have been homeless,” GBI spokeswoman Nelly Miles said.

    Police are seeking the public’s assistance in identifying the man. The Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office is the investigating agency and can be contacted at 770-928-0239.

    <snip>The case used by the GBI involves the discovery of skeletal remains on July 20, 2013, in a wooded area in the 3000 block of South Cherokee Lane in Woodstock. The individual was described as a black male between 40 and 60 years old and approximately 5'7" to 6'1" tall.

    The remains also suggested that the man had a lighter skin complexion, with brown tightly coiled curly hair. This individual likely died some time between February and July 2013, and could possibly have been homeless, the GBI states.
