San Antonio, Florida – On January 24, 1989 a man's body was discovered in a Pasco County orange grove. Even though no one has ever come looking for him, it still weighs on the minds of detectives.

In hopes of generating new leads, facial reconstruction was conducted on the remains and detectives came up with a series of elaborate pictures. It’s what they think the John Doe may have looked like.

Deputies also released pictures of the t-shirt he was wearing at the time. It has a distinctive design on the back with a picture of a Native American person.

The body was discovered about two miles east of County Road 579 in San Antonio, Florida. It was about 100 feet into a wooded area next to an orange grove.

The victim is a white male about 30 – 42 years old, 5’6 to 5’7 feet tall. He had an average build and is probably right handed. He had a tattoo of a rose and spider web on his left forearm.

Anyone with information should contact the Pasco County Sheriff’s Office.
