Etowah County John Doe was a young man found murdered in 1998.


His skeletal remains were found by fishermen. There were multiple gunshot wounds to the skull, and stab wounds to the sacrum and right hipbone. There was also evidence of a burning attempt. The jawline shown in his reconstruction is estimated as his mandible was never found. The remaining maxillary teeth showed no evidence of any fillings, indicating a lack of dental care when alive. Some of his teeth were fractured, possibly because he used them to open bottles. His hand(s) and limb(s) were not recovered.
