    A hiker found scattered skeletal remains and personal property near a stream in Malan Basin between Taylor and Waterfall Canyons at @ 6:30 pm on September 6th, 1987.

    (11) bones were found upper and lower leg bone, lower arm bone, ½ pelvis, left thumb and a lower jawbone with (3) molars. One of the teeth had fillings indicating the bones were less than 100 years old.

    Through medical examination it was determined that the man was nearsighted (glasses), apparently bow-legged (shoe soles) and probably had small fine facial features. Investigators targeted a potential time frame of his death between 1956 and 1965 based upon the coins that were found near the remains. It was also suspected the man may have been murdered due to the shell casings near the bones.

    *The articles state the remains were found on Sept 6th, where as the NAMUS date is Sept 15th assume this may have been the date the report was filed.
