    The man had been beaten severely and cut with a sharp weapon like a machete. The attack was so vicious, police said, the man`s jaw, several teeth, and an area under his nose had been sliced away. The cause of death was officially listed as multiple stab wounds.

    Investigation of the one piece of evidence, a ring bearing the German word ``Kriegsgluck,`` also led detectives to a wall.

    ``Kriegsgluck means `war luck` in German and we believe the ring may be presented to German soldiers. But we`ve tried German-American clubs, German nationals living in this area, and we couldn`t learn anything,`` said Miramar Detective George Pierson.

    Pierson admits that although the ring was found near the body, police cannot determine whether it belonged to the victim.

    As a ``last ditch effort,`` a Broward Sheriff`s Office forensic artist made a facial reconstruction of the victim, molding features around a cast of the victim`s skull. Photographs of the reconstruction were distributed, but police have received no leads.

    6 1/2 is very small for a man's ring. Are they sure he was wearing it?

    Taken from the article posted above:

    "Pierson admits that although the ring was found near the body, police cannot determine whether it belonged to the victim".

    It sounds like the victim was not wearing the ring.

    Wow, there were 18 different 21-35 YOA white males that went missing in Florida between 1980 and the discovery of this UID.

    https://lostandfound.revealnews.org/...iedperson=1249

    Also, 24 UIDs with that description during that period.

    Yes, I don't ever see standard men's rings smaller than size 9 so this must have been a pinky ring if he was wearing it.
    This my opinion and to the best of my knowledge, that is, if I'm not joking.
