Illinois police hope reconstruction leads to identification of man’s body

• Bookmarks: 2

A forensic anthropologist has completed a “facial approximation” of an unidentified body found in Newton, Ill., last spring.

Authorities hope the public will be able to help identify the man from the reconstructed likeness.

On March 10, 2012, a man walking in a remote area near Newton found a human skull and alerted authorities. The remains were found a half-mile east of Illinois 130 in Jasper County.

Officials with the Illinois State Police say the remains are that of an adult male that could be Caucasian, Asian, Native American or Hispanic.

The man is estimated to be 35-50 years old, and approximately 5-feet-3-inches tall. No cause of death has been revealed.

Anyone with information about the individual is asked to contact Sgt. Albert Gallatin with the Illinois State Police at 217-342-2292, ext. 207.
