    OH - Akron, WhtMale UP16005, 30-55, in vacant house, Jan'16

    Akron Police hope 3-D reconstruction will help ID human remains


    The man's skull was found outside an abandoned two-story house at 1345 Marcy Street on January 8, 2016.

    Additional remains were later found inside the home, which had been damaged in a fire in 2012.
    "Someone out there knows who this man was, and we are all very hopeful that someone will see this model and notice a resemblance to a missing friend or family member," said Attorney General Mike DeWine.
    The “John Doe” is believed to have been a Caucasian male between 30 and 55 years old.
    He was estimated to be about 5'9" tall, but his weight, hair, and eye color are unknown.

    Items such as hairstyle are the artist's estimations to complete the image and should not be considered significant markers for identification.
    Several items were found with the remains, including clothing, a belt, black shoes, and keys. More information and photographs can be found in this BCI Criminal Intelligence Unit public bulletin, which was issued to all law enforcement agencies in the state today.

    Just how the skull found its way to a sidewalk back on Jan. 8, 2016, when it was discovered facing toward the street, is still as much of a mystery as how the rest of his skeletal remains ended up inside an upstairs bedroom inside of the home at 1345 Marcy St. that was damaged in a fire in 2012.There were no identifiable physical features offered by the bones recovered from the home after a second search was conducted following the discovery of the skull.
    There also weren’t many clues discovered inside the bedroom where authorities believe someone fished out the skull from beneath a collapsed roof from the Nov. 24, 2012 fire to alert police of the presence of a body.

    Found beneath the roof were some of what is believed to be his personal belongings — from an XXL Croft and Barrow brand coat to a pair of Wrangler straight-leg jeans with red stitching in the waist band to a BUS brand key with a serial number H 00471 — that authorities say have yet to offer any help identifying the man.

    Thanks to forensic work by anthropologists from Mercyhurst University, Summit County Medical Examiner Dr. Lisa Kohler said authorities now believe the man was dead as long as three months prior to the fire.

    She added that they are not sure exactly how he died but they are certain he did not die in the fire.
    Akron Fire Chief Clarence Tucker said firefighters did three sweeps of the vacant home back in 2012 looking for potential victims after the fire was reported at 10:24 a.m.
    Complicating matters, after the fire was extinguished some 24 minutes later, the roof had collapsed and there was a hole in the unstable floor leading to the bedroom where bones were discovered more than three years later, Tucker said.
    He said there was no evidence at the time that the abandoned home was occupied and there was not an alternative way to safely get inside of the second-story room.
    “We do not put firefighters in harm’s way,” he said.
