    On June 18, 1987 police in Smithfield, Rhode Island pulled the body of an unidentified man from Stump Pond, on the property of the Smithfield Police Department. Someone had gone through incredible lengths to try to make sure the body would not float to the surface by wrapping the man in chicken wire and fastening 90 pounds of rocks and barbells to him through a coaxial cable but after a few weeks of decomposing the body had floated to the surface and was discovered by a boater. He was the victim of a homicide, stabbed 21 times with a small instrument such as an ice pick-- 7 stab wounds in the head, 14 on his chest. Police estimated that he had been left in the lake 1 to 3 weeks prior to June 18.

    The man, possibly Hispanic, was 122 pounds and 5'5". His brown hair was slightly receding and he had brown eyes. One of his only distinguishing characteristics was a scruffy beard and mustache-- he has no tattoos, scars, or other markings. Police believe he is between 25-35 and may potentially be from the western part of the country or even Mexico. The clothes he was wearing at his time of death include a black muscle shirt with "San Juan" on the front and back, grey sweatpants, and size 7.5 McGreggor tristar sneakers with no socks.

    Comparisons to the national DNA or fingerprint databases have proven fruitless indicating he probably was never arrested, in the military, or a legal immigrant. Flyers distributed around the New England area yielded no responses.

    The reconstruction is wrong if the description is accurate.

    I don't see a beard at all...

    I think he is most likely a victim of Tommy Lynn Sells. He committed a murder in New York in May 1987 so he definitely could have been in the area. He admitted that an ice pick was one of his tools of choice. And in a 1999 murder he stabbed a girl 16 times after cutting her throat so this totally seems like his M.O. He claimed to have killed a dozen people in seven states between 1987 and 1989.
