WI - Madison, WhtMale 745UMWI 18-35, In Chimney - Wearing Women's Clothes, Sep'89


The following case was added to doenetwork yesterday: In 1989, a young man dressed in woman's clothes was found in the chimney of a business in Madison, WI.

Unidentified White Male

* The victim was discovered on September 3, 1989 in Madison, Wisconsin
* Estimated Date of Death: 2-24 months prior. (September of 1987 to July of 1989)
* Skeletal Remains

Vital Statistics

* Estimated age: 18-35 years old
* Approximate Height and Weight: 5'5-5'7"
* Distinguishing Characteristics: Brown hair, about 4 inches long. Thin build.
* Dentals: Available. Pronounced overbite.
* Clothing: A sleeveless paisley dress, with a matching belt; a long-sleeved, button-down shirt that may have been made of Oxford-type cloth. A medium-size White Stag brand, shaggy-pile sweater. Low-heeled, pointed shoes. He was wearing one pair of socks and carrying another pair. He was not wearing underwear. A German iron cross medallion, a butter knife and a pocket comb.

Case History
The victim's skeletal remains were found in the chimney of a business on University Avenue in Madison, WI. The owner of the building was doing repair work, and saw water leaking from the flue onto the basement floor after removing a boiler. He shined a light into the chimney and discovered the remains at the base of the chimney about level with the basement floor. There is no way the man could have gotten into the pipe from within the building.
The person may have been a male cross-dresser or someone for some reason disguising himself as a woman.
Detectives have speculated the man was a burglar who got stuck in the chimney and died, or a murder victim who was stuffed into the chimney. The pelvic bones of the mystery man had been severely fractured and those injuries appear to have been caused at the time of death.
