    CT - Hartford Co., male body off Route 72, Nov'11 - Janusz Wlodarczyk

    NamUs link: https://identifyus.org/cases/9513

    The UID was discovered on the shoulder of Route 72 East at exit 8 in New Britain, CT on November 13, 2011. Postmortem interval is listed at 3 hours.

    He is described as a white male from 30 years to 45 years old, having short black hair, and brown eyes. His height was measured at 5'7" and weight at 168 pounds.

    The UID was wearing blue jeans, black socks, black shoes, a brown belt, green boxer shorts, a brown button up shirt, and a grey tank top.

    Dentals are available on NamUs and DNA has been submitted but tests are not complete.

    There already is a very long list of rule outs for this UID. One possibility that came to mind to me was Michael Mongillo of Bristol, CT. However, I am having difficulty finding descriptive information on Michael. Judging from his image, his hair seems dark but I cannot make out his eye color. He also appears to be taller than 5'7".

    Still, a definitive list of descriptive info would be helpful.

    This really frustrates me. I live in CT, and have not heard any mention of this John Doe anywhere before this thread. How did he die? What was the ME's finding? Murder? Accidental death? Suicide? Natural causes? How about a picture. That would surely help.

    I live in CT as well mstrbill. I was mystified why there was no picture of the UID and it does say on the report IIRC that he has a recognizable face. Perhaps the state of CT doesn't post photos of UIDs on NamUs like other states. It's a shame, really.

    I couldn't find any cause of death either on the report.

    Mitchel Weiser 1956 New York
    Nicholas Zizzamia 1956 New Jersey

    I went ahead and sent an email to the medical examiner and submitted the person Michael Mongillo as a possibility because his age is within the 30-45 year window of the UID, and Michael has what looks like the same color hair - and short - as the UID. I was a bit surprised he wasn't on the rule out list as well.

    I will let you know if I hear anything.

    here's a guy from CT not on the rule out list Donny Cappella,missing from New Haven in Oct 2009. Donny was 39 y.o., 5'9" 150 lbs, black hair, brown eyes and no identifying scars or tattoos:

    only problem is they have no photo, fingerprints, DNA or dentals so there is nothing to compare him to.

    Got a reply from the ME this morning.

    Dear [my name],



    Thank you for your tip. I called the investigating Sgt. At the New Britain Police Department and he had already spoken and looked into the case of Michael Mongillo as a possible match for our Unidentified. Michael did not match the more in depth description that the Bristol Police gave him.



    Thank you very much for the tip, it is greatly appreciated.



    Sincerely,

    Michelle Clark

    There's a NamUs MP casefile and facial reconstruction now for this John Doe.

    He looks amazingly like Kevin Bowman of Twin Falls ID.

    http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/b/bowman_kevin.html

    The ears are spot-on.

    But the height is off by 5 inches, Kevin doesn't have the scar on the right side of his upper lip (as is depicted on the UID), and there is no mention of a scar on the UID's head.

    I'm very happy that a reconstruction was posted. I had mentioned in my email to the medical examiner that it would be cool to have an image to compare the UID to missing persons.

    However, CT has another problem that very few recent missing persons are posted in NamUs or Charley Project. While the fact that this UID is in NamUs with a huge rule out list means they are certainly improving, it is far from sufficient. An article posted today in the Middletown Press says that State Police says there are 37 missing persons cases in CT, but the actual number according to this advocate is 700 or more.

    Carl, that reconstruction does look a lot like Kevin Bowman, but I agree it is highly unlikely to be him.

    I'm so surprised he has been ruled out, they look really close.

    The ME stated to me that the UID did not match the description provided by the Bristol PD. However, now that I look at the reconstruction and the image, there are some similarities. The eyebrows and nose in particular look very similar.

    I think I will email the ME tonight when I get home and state that after looking at the two images, there are physical similarities and it is worth looking into the two of them being a match.

    I sent a reply email to the medical examiner in charge of this unidentified person's case, and it reads as follows:

    Hello Michelle,

    Thank you for your reply. I noticed that on the NamUs profile for this unidentified person a reconstruction has been posted. Myself and a few others have noted a few similarities from the reconstruction to Michael Mongillo. I also noticed that he has not been added to the exclusion list on the unidentified personís NamUs profile.

    If Michael Mongillo has been conclusively ruled out, then please disregard.

    However if he has not been conclusively ruled out, myself and others have noted that the nose shape, eye brow spacing, facial hair, and dimple placement in the reconstruction look very similar to the published picture we have seen of Michael Mongillo.

    I think that if he has not been conclusively ruled out based on identifying factors, it may be worth checking Michael Mongillo against this unidentified person.

    Thank you again for your time and consideration.

    Sincerely,


    [my name]
    I will let you know if I hear back from the medical examiner.

    Could the scar on his upper lip be due to removal of a mole or blemish in that area? When somone has a cancerous/precancerous lesion removed as cheaply as possible without any reconstructive effort a scar usually results.

    Wow! I wonder if the height is off because the person who reported him missing took a guess? They sure look a lot alike..that nose...looks the same to me... Also how long has Kevin been missing? Maybe he got a scar after he went missing?
