    Unidentified White Male


    The victim was discovered on January 3, 2005 near Summit, Cook Co, Illinois

    Approximate Height and Weight: 5'9"; 185 lbs.

    Clothing: A brown sweater, blue shirt, dark blue pants, a white T-shirt, and black, size 9, slip on shoes, a gray short sleeved sweater.

    Case History
    The victim was recovered from the Illinois/Michigan Shipping Canal near Summit, Illinois. Metal weights were attached to his body via rope.
    It is believed that the victim may have been homeless at the time.
    Couldn't find a thread for this man, but I came across him while searching for Mark Dribin (http://www.doenetwork.org/cases/3847dmor.html). While there's certainly a resemblance, I had actually meant to be searching in Idaho and was looking in Illinois.

    The metal weights stand out to me; was this a suicide?

    I think either a suicide or a murder. Someone could have pushed him over and tied the weights. But yes, a suicide is more likely.

    I doubt it was suicide. It's the proverbial cement shoes here.
