NEW PORT RICHEY, Fla. (AP) - The Pasco County Sheriff's Office has released new images of a man who was murdered in the 1980s in hopes of generating a break in a cold case.
On Monday, officials outlined the scenario: the remains of a man's body were found in 1989 near an orange grove off Prospect Road in Dade City. The body was mostly decomposed and authorities suspected it had been exposed to the elements between six months and two years before it was found.
Detectives were never able to identify the man but said he had been shot twice.
Erin Kimmerle, a forensic anthropologist from the University of South Florida, studied the remains and created a digital facial image of what the man might have looked like before he died.
