On August 23, 2006, the partially
skeletonized remains of an adult male were recovered from the
Passaic River in the Memorial Park section of Fair Lawn.
An anthropological examination of
the remains determined that the body was of
a white male (possibly a racial
mixture). He is estimated to be over
45 years old, between 5’ 04” and 5’ 07”tall,
and wore upper and lower dentures (that
had been repaired at one time). The only
clothing recovered was a black sock and a size 11 EEE “Propet
shoe.” The attached pictures are of a forensic facial reconstruction
created by Forensic Anthropologist Donna Fontana from the New Jersey
State Police. This reconstruction was created using the recovered
skull and dentures.
Anyone with information concerning the identity of the
individual is urged to Contact Detective Sergeant Michael Uttel of
the Fair Lawn Police Department at 201-794-5410 ext 249.
