On April 18, 1973, the body of an unidentified male was discovered in a shallow stream 180 feet from 1550 Road in Garnett, Kansas. Based on the condition of the remains, the decedent had likely been deceased 2-4 weeks prior to recovery. The unidentified male had brown and wavy hair approximately 5 inches in length, and a slender build. He was found wearing blue jeans with a stop sign patch symbol on the back left pocket and a black leather belt with large buffalo nickel buckle, waist-length brown corduroy jacket with a zipper closure-size Small (“STURDY WEAR” brand), a green long sleeved button-up shirt-size Small (“J.C. PENNEY” Brand), black leather gloves, a navy blue stocking cap, blue socks, and brown hiking boots (“VOMPER” brand). He was also found wearing two gold rings with crosses, a third ring bearing the numbers “78”, and a silver chain with a large silver cross approximately 2 inches in length. The featured reconstruction is an artist’s rendering of what the John Doe may have looked like. Anyone who may have information should contact the Anderson County Coroner, reference case number 17-73, or the Anderson County Sheriff’s Office, reference case number 09-22941.
