Additional Information :

The remains of this unidentified man were located by deer hunters in November, 1966. Although the 15th is listed as the day of discovery, this is only an estimate and should be considered as such.

The victim was found in Trout Lake, located in Michigan’s Hiawatha National Forest. Examination of the remains revealed that the victim had been shot five times.

The design of the key ring was one that was more commonly found in Canada. Canadian coins were also found in the man’s pocket.

Based on these items and the proximity of the border, police believe that he may have been from Northern Ontario.
