Baron Co John Doe 2017

On Sunday, December 3, 2017 deputies of the Barron County Sheriff’s Department were called to investigate a fragment of a human skull found on the driveway of a rural residence in Dallas, Baron County, Wisconsin.  According to the resident, his dog apparently had dug up the fragment and brought it home. During a subsequent search of the woods near the house more skeletal remains were located. Following tests conducted by a Texas lab, it was determined the remains were that of a white or possibly Asian male between 35 and 55 years old and standing between 5’8 and 5’11. The deceased had suffered a gunshot wound to the head and the case is considered a homicide.
