On September 13, 2009 the body of a deceased white male was found in a wooded location in the town of Windham, Maine. It is believed that the individual committed suicide by hanging and had been dead for a period of two weeks.
He was believed to have weighed around 200 pounds and stood at six feet tall. His age could have been between 18 to 30 years of age. He had strawberry blond/red hair that was short and straight as well as a scruffy goatee type beard. Eye color could not be determined due to decomposition of the body. It is likely that the victim was from out of state but might be from New England.
Items found on the victim include:
Silver framed, bottom rimless glasses.
A Navy Blue Boston Red Sox baseball Hat with Red letter “B” .
Black Dewalt Size 13 Work Boots.
A Woven leather belt used as ligature that had a brass colored buckle.

DNA testing confirmed his identity.
