    I couldn't find a thread for this man and saw a news article so thought I would start a thread. There are a couple of items found with this man that might be clues - a distinctive necklace charm and an emblem patched onto his jeans saying "AJ's Club Member"

    News article on this case with a computer enhanced photofit and pictures of his necklace charm and shoes - http://wtop.com/maryland/2015/04/cold-case-police-try-to-id-body-found-in-potomac-in-1991/

    As a native central Marylander, the location has me confused. Bellevue, the town, is another county completely. There's a Bellevue plantation in Prince George's county, but it is inland. Also, the WTOP article says south of the bridge, while the NAMUS case says north of the bridge. There's a Belle View neighborhood in Alexandria, VA, south of the bridge. Maybe that's what they're speaking of? The Maryland line pretty much goes across the entire bridge, so I could understand the confusion if that is the area they're talking about.
