Downtown Phoenix John Doe 2004



In the early morning hours of October 19, 2004, the body of an adult Caucasian male was found in downtown Phoenix, Arizona, in the area of Central Avenue and West Monroe Street. The man’s injuries suggested that he had fallen from a tall building.  

The individual was estimated to be 40-60 years old, approximately 5’7” and 145 pounds.  He had blue eyes, gray hair and was missing many of his teeth.  A surgical implant in his right ankle indicated a previous surgery, and he may have walked with a limp.  

He was wearing green Levi’s jeans, size 32X34, and a black belt.
