    TN - Columbia, male body in Duck River, Sep'89 - Joseph Oden

    I could not find a thread about this John Doe in the Unidentified forum so thought I would start a new one here...

    MAURY COUNTY, Tenn. - Detectives in Maury County said they've finally solved the mystery of an unidentified body.

    Police pulled a man's body from the Duck River in Columbia about two and a half years ago. With no ID found and little more than just bones for remains, police were only able to determine the mysterious death dated back to 1989. The victim became a John Doe.

    Assuming 1989 since it would be hard to date the time of death within a year in a 20-year old death.

    You're right Donjeta, it was 1989. Found an updated article on this case and the man has been named as Joseph Oden
