Partial skeletal remains of the victim were located on September 1, 1980 after flood waters receded on the Ohio River near Carrollton. On November 11, 1980, additional remains were found on the riverbank behind Kentucky Utilities Plant in Ghent. It is believed that both sets of remains may belong to the same individual.

In May 2017, a potential link between the remains and missing Constable George Hawkins was discovered. Hawkins disappeared in 1961 and is believed to have been killed by mobsters and bore a resemblance to the reconstruction of this victim.

Hawkins was later excluded from the case.

I just can't believe no one knows this man. Or if there was mob activity, No one was talking. Apparently no missing matching persons report and it was over 40 yrs ago.
