    On 05/19/1981, at 0315 hrs. Richmond Police responded to a body in the alley of 306 E. Leigh Street in Richmond.
    The unidentifed decedent, a white male, 20-35 years of age, cause of death: skulls fractures, acute brain injury due to beating with blunt instrument. On 10/02/81, a suspect was convicted of homicide but the decedent is still not identified.​

    I could've sworn there was a thread for this guy -- I'm following his case on NAMUS; they added a picture today.

    As soon as I saw the recon, I was like, "That's the dude that disappeared the year after we moved to New England!" Took me a while to find him, though, because I couldn't remember his name.

    Anyone know what the circumstances were surrounding the beating? They convicted the perp, but he didn't know who he was beating? Was it a bar fight? Robbery?

    That article you posted is exactly why I am terrified of the woods.

    Looks like his DNA has been updated from none to complete - insufficient
