    I got tired of looking at the previous recon that I did of this John Doe. It was one of my first attempts when I didn't have as good of a handle on the use of the photoshopping software, and my first attempt was sloppily done.

    So I revised it. There isn't a thread for this John Doe, so I will start one.

    The victim was located along the westbound lanes of Basin Road near New Castle. Route 141 is a well-travelled highway and very close to Interstate 95. He was wrapped in a blanket and appeared to have been dumped at the location.

    A witness reported to police that a van had been parked on the shoulder of the roadway earlier (where the body was found) and that the driver was a white male.

    I am guessing that this guy was probably from Columbia (or thereabouts), and was murdered by persons associated with the drug trade.

    Does he naturally have a bump or a discoloration in the forehead or would that be a peri/postmortem change?

    for what it is worth he does not look Colombian to me. there appears to be some darker features to him which I associate more with being Dominican, Venezuelan or Panamanian.

    If I'm not mistaken, the westbound lanes of Basin Road (141) lead *to* I-95, not away from it. In other words, someone exiting I-95 would have to make a u-turn, dump the Doe on the side of the road, and then get back on the highway. Basin Road also hooks up to Rt. 13, which runs north to south through Delaware, although used most often for local travel.

    Also, very close to the site is where I-95 splits to 295N, which leads to the Delaware Memorial Bridge and into New Jersey.

    Just some food for thought.

    you think this might be him?

    Jeronimo Rico was last seen in Rochester, NY on Aug 21, 1994. he was supposedly 5'7" 138 lbs. even has the mustache. unfortunately, the only pic is small and I can't make out any bump on his head or widow's peak.

    the widow's peak on the UID is not terribly pronounced, certainly not like former VP candidate Paul Ryan's was.

    are you saying Jeronimo also has one? I can't enlarge the picture enough to get a clear image of whether Jeronimo does or does not have the widow's peak.

    Namus has not been updated, but Hal Brown told me that Jeronimo Rico was ruled out on fingerprints.

    Today marks 21 years since his body was found. Someone has to know who this man is and I hope they come forward.

    This poor guy--his post-mortem pictures were awful. I'm really hoping he gets ID'd.
