    Cops release sketch of man found in canal



    February 5, 2010

    Authorities on Friday released a sketch of a man found floating in the Chicago Sanitary & Ship Canal last week in hopes of identifying the drowning victim.
    The man was found Jan. 27 in the canal near Lemont. An autopsy confirmed the man drowned, the Cook County medical examiner's office said, but manner of death - accident, suicide or homicide - was undetermined.

    additional info from link.

    Illinois State Police took over the investigation and are now requesting public assistance in identifying the man.

    He was described as African-American, about 6-foot-2 and between 190 and 220 pounds with a glass left eye. He had no piercings or tattoos, but did have three square hospital leads on his chest.
    Anyone with information should call state police Special Agent Freddie Summers at (847) 294-4590.

    I couldn't find any follow up stories on this guy. you'd think with a glass left eye, he'd be easy to identify.

    If he was reported missing. He may not have been reported and sadly lots of UID's in IL never have follow up MSM stories.

    Two Mp's listed at Charley Project with glass eyes but neither match the above UID.

    I did see an African American missing person from OH with a glass left eye but he was in his 70's and bald. this UID appears to be in his mid to late 30's but I don't think a description was given, just the composite.

    the UID is in Namus without the composite. no reference to the hospital leads on his chest.

    they got some fingerprints as well as both the nucDNA and mtDNA.

    no rule outs.

    Bumping. I emailed Blackandmissinginc.com about this UID 6 months ago, asking if they could feature him on their site. I never heard back.
