Have You Seen This Man? FeaturedWritten by Jacque Harms
Computer generated photographs may help the Lincoln County Sheriff's Department identify the body found near North Platte last spring.
The badly decomposed body was discovered April 20th near the South Platte River.
These pictures put a face on the body found on private property, half mile west of U.S. Highway 83.
Officials sent the skull to project EDAN in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
They created composite sketches and clay reconstructions.
These pictures are the results of their work.
Officials believe the man was likely between the ages of 43 to 55 years old, and between 5'4" to 5'6" tall.
The man likely had open heart surgery and extensive dental work.
Forensic Odontologists discovered very expensive dental work with a gold filling, porcelain fillings, root canals and a "Flipper", a fake tooth attached to an upper retainer.
Bones were sent to the University of North Texas Center for Human Identification.
They hoped to obtain a DNA profile.
The Lincoln County Sheriff's Office hopes the photographs may help identify the man.
