Doenet says "Investigators have invested a lot of time and money into the case they've dubbed "Tommy Torso." A drawing and reconstruction of the victim was completed but neither is unavailable at this time." I have no idea why they would have done a reconstruction and drawing if they weren't going to make it publicOpinions expressed are strictly my own (who else would they belong to???)

i bump this one year later.
i read the story of "theresa torso". the female victim and her family (disgusting pervert partner and children) lived in a makeshift camper on a closed island in FL that was inhabited by vagrants. since the partner was very abusive, i am thinking this man is someone who also lived on the island or else how would she have had access. so possibly a vagrant or immigrant. probably not reported missing.
