    On December 11, 1972, while investigating buzzards circling on his property in northwest Johnson County, Texas, a rancher discovered a human body. The unidentified nude male had been shot with a small-caliber handgun three times and died up to a week before. An autopsy revealed that the small man was about 30 years old, about 5’6 with short, curly brown hair. The original investigation was hampered by extensive damage done to the remains by foraging animals. Unable to identify the deceased, the man was buried in an unmarked pauper’s grave at Rose Hill Cemetery in Cleburne, TX. The body was exhumed for analysis and collection of material for DNA in 2013.

    No update on DNA from Exhumation from 2013?. What about Dentals?

    Not sure about dentals.
    DNA Doe Project is running his DNA currently.
