MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – Hennepin County is asking for the public’s help identifying a man whose remains were found in Rosemount in September 2014.
According to Hennepin County officials, partially skeletonized remains of an unidentified man were recovered from a railroad switching shed on Sept. 29, 2014.
Police believe the man had been living in the shed, which was located near the intersection of 146th Street and Burnley Avenue West.
After investigating several leads, Rosemount Police were unable to learn the identity of the man.
Hennepin County Medical Examiner completed a full forensic analysis and dental charts, then entered the man into the National Missing and Unidentified Persons System in 2015.
Despite indexing his clothing and personal property, there have been no leads on his identity.
The Hennepin County Medical Examiner, along with the Federal Bureau of Investigation, recently created a facial reconstruction. They are releasing the images in hopes that someone may recognize him.
The Hennepin County Medical Examiner describes the man as being a white male between 30 and 50-years-old. He is thought to be 5’6″ tall with long brown and grey hair.
Officials said his clothing size was XL and XXL, but his belt size was 29 inches.
When the remains were found, the man was wearing a Wilson Leather Open Road motorcycle jacket and metal framed Boardroom Classics eyeglasses.
He carried a knife sheath with a hand carved eagle with swords and a confederate flag. The knife also had a series of initials on it, including RMK, LLW, DIS, DCS, ME, MJC, PSM, DHT, LLC and JLB.
If you recognize the person depicted in these images, or the description of the property, Hennepin County asks you contact the Medical Examiner at 612-215-6300.
