    (WARNING: GRAPHIC)
    Qld Police need help to identify this man.
    Poona Dam myster man

    He has some tattoos that can be seen here (WARNING GRAPHIC...photos are the actual photos of the tattoos taken from the deceased.)

    I would like help to find the original tattoo flash designs if possible as I am working privately on this case. I do know that the tattoo designs are American in origin, so it may be possible (although a long shot) that they were tattooed during a trip to the USA.
    Basically, Qld police have exhausted all avenues, including international..so I am using my networks to try and find a lead.

    The Courier Mail has a similar story that focuses more on how he is suspected to have frequented a business in the area.
    http://www.couriermail.com.au/news/...dam-near-nambour/story-e6freoof-1225906085268

    Kingaroy is a smallish town (less than 10,000 inhabitants) but because it is a sort of regional focus for the area has an unusual number of caravan parks, motels, bed and breakfasts etc for its population. The area is prosperous farming land that has historically provided quite a good living to the people who own land there, the crops are mainly peanuts and also a few wineries.

    Dead man leaves smiley face as only clue to identity

    September 14, 2013

    BEFORE his lonely death, a man's last act was to leave a puzzle for police that has remained stubbornly unsolved for five years.
    Next to the man's body was a wallet - containing no identification - that had been left open to show a smiley face on a card.

    "Have a nice day," read the card, in an apparent challenge to police to solve the mystery of his identity.

    Measuring just over 6ft (185cm) and weighing 102kg, he was between 45 and 60 years of age. At some point in his past he had sat down for tattoos on his upper arms of a shark, eagle, Native American woman and warrior.

    Just reading the articles - 2 different reports on who found him:

    Age:

    The man was located wearing:
    A red ‘Bauhaus’ baseball cap,
    long sleeved “Duchamp” brand black shirt,
    “Aus sport” grey tracksuit pants,
    white orange and grey “Fila” ankle socks
    and a pair of “Cougar” white, navy, silver and orange sandshoes.
    Police estimate the man was approximately 178cm tall,
    with short straight grey hair
    and a heavy build.

    Another Source says his height is:
    Measuring just over 6ft (185cm)
    and weighing 102kg

    Found with the body:
    A wallet - containing no identification.
    A smiley face on a card that said, "Have a nice day"
    Empty blister packs of prescription tablets
    An old Plains Video Kingaroy rental card.

    It would be nice for this man to have his name back and his family to know he was found. I hope they keep the investigation ongoing into who he is.
