A forensic artist took time to provide the sheriff and medical examiner with an approximate sketch of what I looked like. It depicts a very good looking guy. Ha! That’s me. Where does my story begin? Well, it truly begins many years ago. However, you’ll only learn about a very brief moment in time for me. You’ll learn about the day my body was found.
You’ve guessed by now that I’m dead, right? Hope so, otherwise you’re really slow on picking up the gist of things.
On Sunday, March 25, 1979, my body was found mummified in a wooded area of the 1200 block of East Hallandale Beach Blvd., in Hallandale, Florida. Florida is where they found me. I was mummified. Now, think on that for a minute! Mummified . . . how often do you hear that term in reference to a dead person that hasn’t been dead for a thousand years or more? Not that often, right? So why was I mummified?
You don’t really expect an answer to that last question, do you? Maybe one day you’ll get an answer, but for now, we have to focus on who the heck I am. Me, remember that dead guy who was mummified? I’m the only thing you need to focus on right now. Who am I?
They can tell you that I’m a Caucasian male, thirty to forty five years old, who stood around 5' 9" and had long (4 to 5 inches) brown hair with a touch of gray. I wore . . . well the day they found me, I was wearing a yellow sport shirt, olive green pants, a brown leather belt with a blue/red faced Indian Horseman buckle. Now if those were my clothes, that belt buckle might be the closest thing you have to trying to figure out who I am.
One brief moment in time is all that you’ll learn about me today. From there you have to try and figure out who I am. If you can track that buckle back to me or to a family missing a loved one -- you might just be able to identify me. So while the mummified information is interesting, focus on what might get you back to my identity. Focus on figuring out who I am.
