On November 17, 1984 the skull and other skeletal remains, along with some soft tissue, were found in a wooded area in Giddings, Lee County, Texas. A forensic anthropologist estimated the white male, who was between 29 and 38 years old and stood Height 5′ 8 to 6′ 1, had been deceased for at least six months prior to being discovered. The man had an unusual facial feature: a unique frontal bone which made a sharp dip at his nose bridge which more than likely resulted in a rightward deviating nose. In 2008, a police artist created a sketch from the skull of what the deceased may have looked like when alive.
