I find this stuff fascinating!
It’s like CSI or Criminal Minds-but real life!
Ontario Provincial Police are seeking the public’s help solving a case of an unidentified young male, whose remains were found in Algonquin Park close to four decades ago, by releasing a three-dimensional clay facial reconstruction image for the first time.
Police said a hiker located the remains on April 19, 1980 while on the Harwood Lookout Trail near Whitney, Ont., 77 metres from trail marker number five.
“We were able to give information to a forensic artist and being able to create a face is a huge step forward.
“We’re hoping that a face humanizes the remains enough so that people may take another look and think back to those days.”
“We can’t say for sure that he’s Canadian. He could be American. The Vietnam War was going on at the time. So we don’t know. The border was quite fluid, unlike today.”
Anyone with information on the case can call the missing persons hotline toll-free at 1-877-934-6363 (1-877-9-FINDME) in Canada only or 1-705-330-4144 from outside Canada. An email can also be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org.
