Rock Co John Doe 1981

Rock County John Doe 1981

On March 13, 1981, while clearing out a concrete culvert at I-90 and Rocky City Road 23 in Beaver Creek Township, Minnesota, a department of transportation worker found human skeletal remains. The ditch and culvert were last cleaned on October 21, 1980, and no remains were noted at that time. The skeleton was clothed in green work pants, boxer shorts, green socks, and light tan engineer-type boots. Forensic investigators determined the remains were that of a White/Caucasian male, 30-50 years old, and approximately 5’7” tall. It is estimated the man died some months before being found, probably in late 1980.
