    "On April 4, 1978, the Hewitt Police Department found a man who was shot and killed stuffed into a concrete culvert off of Sun Valley Rd., near the Hewitt Dr. intersection. However, after months of investigating police were not able to find any leads or suspects and dropped the case.

    With new crime solving technology though, the current Hewitt Chief of Police believes now is the perfect time to re-open this case and find the murderer."

    I think there are a lot of good hints- this UID has a few unique tattoos and a unique necklace.

    physical description spot on but he disappeared 5 years prior, in 1973.

    Note: it looks like this UID has DNA but not yet submitted. Two of the three above suggestions have DNA in the system already.

    HEWITT - The Texas Department of Public Safety and the Hewitt Police Department want the public's help to identify a man whose remains were found in 1978 in Hewitt.

    The victim was white, 5 feet 8 inches tall and weighed about 128 pounds, with brown eyes and shoulder-length light brown hair, a moustache and a small goatee.
    At the time of his death, he was wearing Levi’s jeans, brown boots and a long-sleeved shirt with a dark blue/white floral pattern. He was also wearing a white puka shell necklace with black beads. A silver-colored “Snoopy” medallion was found at the scene.

    That article is making the rounds again -- just saw it on Facebook. Praying this is the year he is identified.

    A new article on this case....


    Hewitt Police seek leads in department's oldest cold case: 'Disco Dan'
    Stephen Adams, KCEN 10:53 AM. CDT June 16, 2017

    The Hewitt Police Department is renewing calls for help solving its oldest cold case.

    Detectives opened a homicide investigation in April 1978 after someone discovered the body of a man believed to be in his 20s or 30s with a single gunshot wound inside a drainage culvert in a field near Spring Valley Road and South Haven Drive.
