    Case Information
    At approx. 9:42 a.m. on March 25, 1986, Sioux City Police responded to a report of a man down under a bridge of an abandoned river channel near Marx Trucking at 220 S. Lewis Blvd.

    Marx employees had observed smoke and a noxious odor coming from the area the day before at approximately 5 p.m. Investigators located the body of man — believed to be between 40-50 years of age — burned beyond recognition, with a gas can located between the victim’s legs.

    The subject wore white cotton gloves, a brown western shirt, blue jeans, blue cotton socks and tan western boots.

    The decedent’s possessions also included a tube of contact cement.

    The death is believed to have been caused by thermal injuries suffered during an act of self-immolation (setting one’s self on fire). The body was found doused with gasoline. The decedent’s blood type was determined to be A+.

    The Sioux City Police did obtain dental records from the victim’s teeth, which have been compared to numerous missing persons across the country.

    As of this date, the subject’s identity is unknown and the case remains open.
