John Doe VII was one of many victims of the Cleveland Torso Murderer. The only known distinctive feature about the victim is that he had "well-groomed" fingernails.
Nearly every part of the victim's remains were found, except for the head. He had been dismembered and fragments of the body were recovered from the Cuyahoga River over the duration of a week.
The upper part of the torso and thighs were found first. No clothing was ever found.
