    BOULDER COUNTY, Colo. — Twenty-six years after a man’s death in Boulder County, investigators are still trying to uncover who he was and how he died.

    "On Nov. 11, 1993, human skeletal remains were found near Gregory Canyon in Boulder County. Investigators have not been able to identify the person since then.

    An examination of the remains indicated that the person was a Caucasian male between the ages of 25 and 45 years old. He was between 5 feet, 3 inches and 5 feet, 8 inches tall and, at the time of his death, was wearing Levi blue jeans, a white shirt and white tennis shoes. He had shoulder-length dark blonde to light brown hair."

    "His teeth were in poor condition and he may have anemic.

    Based on chemical isotope testing, he may have been born in the southeastern United States and likely lived in southern Florida or central Texas. He did not appear to be a Colorado native."

    Are there photos of his clothes, shoes? Or do we know sizes, brands (besides Levis jeans)?

    A bit more info. about the Doe's nose.. rbbm.
    Art of Forensics
    "A hiker in Gregory Canyon discovered the partially skeletonized remains of a 30-45 year old man of White (European) ancestry. Unknown, he was buried in a John Doe grave until April 2018, when exhumed by the Boulder County Coroner’s Office and sent to IFAAS for analysis.
    He had shoulder length, dark blonde - brown hair and was dressed in Levi blue jeans, a white shirt and white tennis shoes. The bridge of his nose was very prominent and likely appeared deviated to the left. He was approximately 5’5” to 5’8” tall. Chemical isotope analysis suggests he was born in the Southeastern U.S. and likely lived in southern Florida or Central Texas, but was not local to the Colorado area. His manner of death remains Unknown.

    Location: Gregory Canyon, Boulder County, Colorado

    "New technology is giving Boulder County investigators hope that they can solve a 25-year-old cold case by putting a name to a face and bringing closure for a man known since 1993 only as John Doe...

    The University of South Florida’s body farm that specializes in studying what happens to a body after someone dies was enlisted to help.

    Through testing, researchers were able to determine the man was born in the southeastern United States and was likely not a Colorado native. Testing showed he was of European ancestry and likely between 30 and 45 years of age.

    The team was able to create a sketch of the man and a reconstruction of the man’s head.

    “They’ve created these tangible, visible reconstruction that we can look at,” said Lampi. “And now he has a face. And that’s great. Like I said, maybe someone recognizes him.”

    It’s Lampi’s hope that the sketch and bust can help her solve the crime "

    My first impression of the uid is that he appeared to be French Canadian, but of course the more one looks, he could be of any heritage, imo.
