    The victim was located in a wooded area, between the 20400 block of State Road 84, and the New River Canal, in Fort Lauderdale, Florida on March 17, 1984. Found in the pocket of the jeans were a pack of Kool cigarettes, a white Bic lighter and some change. No underclothing, wallet, identification or jewelry were found.

    Now 31 years later, he has been identified as Earl Blankenship.

    On Monday the Broward Medical Examiner's office identified Blankenship as the murder victim whose body was discovered in March 1984 by two fishermen in the area of State Road 84 and Northwest 204th Avenue, near the Everglades.

    The cause of death was "multiple stab wounds,"
    The murder itself is still unsolved.

    Before learning several weeks ago that her son's remains had been identified, the family also learned that Earl had a child, whom Earl had never met. Now 32, Jessica Casner and her 10-year-old daughter attended a recent memorial service at the Blankenship home, where Casner met her grandmother, aunts and uncle for the first time.

    Casner was a newborn when Blankenship separated from her mother. "I picture him as a kid who got in some trouble, tried to straighten himself out, but it was too late," said Casner, who lives in Danville, Ill. "It's nice to know what happened. It wasn't that he didn't want to be a father. He was murdered, plain and simple."

    It's been a year since Earl was identified. Hoping the investigation is still active.
