VA - Chesapeake, BlkMale 1069UMVA, in river, Sep'06 - William Valencia-Trujillo
Oct 5, 2007
Forensic experts from the Naval Criminal Investigative Service (NCIS) are hoping to identify a body found in Chesapeake Virginia by using the man's remains for a facial reconstruction.
NCIS Special Agent Ed Gardner, a forensic artist based at the NCIS office on the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center (FLETC) in Brunswick Georgia, is working meticulously to create sketches and a sculpture, which should result in a good approximation of what the man looked like before he died sometime last year.
Chesapeake Police asked NCIS to help identify the man whose body was found in the Elizabeth River in September of 2006. The body of a black male was recovered from the Elizabeth River. It was determined he had been in the water for approximately a week. The male was discovered unclothed and was wearing a Ferrari watch. The watch was aired by local media but generated few calls. There were no unique physical characteristics that would assist in identifying the man. Detective T. Downing, assigned to the case, was able to rule out numerous missing persons that fit the description during this period.

I want to see the watch. I find it interesting that I was talking to a co-worker who had a Ferrari watch go missing from her house in Norfolk around the same time this man was found. Not that it was her watch but I never even knew there was even a Ferrari watch. I know I have see this case before, but it may have just been on the local news. Another link.

New addition just added this afternoon to NamUs.
He looks like a very solid possible for this John Doe.
* Height (5'9") is spot-on
* Age (40) is at the top end of the estimate (20-40)
* He was last seen on 25-Aug-2006 - 10 days before the John Doe was discovered (04-Sep-2006), and the body had been in the water about a week.
* He was last seen in Gaithersburg MD. - about 200 miles from where the body was found.
* Very solid resemblance.

Just realized that the UID's NamUs casefile is offline. Maybe someone already spotted it.
But I e-mailed Pamela Reed anyway, just in case.

He is not listed on any of the missing sites and I can't find any mention of him on the internet at all. Grrrrrr! /EndLittleRant

After six years, body found in river is identified

The body bobbed up in the Elizabeth River near the Jordan Bridge after a nor'easter more than six years ago. It was naked, nameless and decomposing.
A Ferrari wristwatch and a goatee provided the only apparent clues to its identity.
