OSBI Forensic Artist Puts Face on Unidentified Remains Found in Pittsburg County

OSBI Forensic Artist Harvey Pratt just completed a facial reconstruction from remains found in Pittsburg County last year. December 13, 2012, several human bones and a skull were discovered in a wooded area near Quinton on Wagnon Ranch. Sheriff’s deputies and medical examiner’s office personnel recovered the remains. Since then, the medical examiner has determined the remains are that of a white and/or Hispanic male between 40 and 60 years old. The victim is believed to have stood between 5’3” and 5’8” tall. He was right handed and at some point in this life suffered a broken lower left rib. Investigators believe the body was placed in that wooded area between two and five years ago. The medical examiner’s office is unable to determine the cause and manner of death at this time.

This description does not fit any missing persons in the surrounding area. Pittsburg County Sheriff’s investigators are hopeful the skull reconstruction will help someone recognize the victim. This reconstruction is only meant to resemble the victim – not mimic his appearance. Therefore, if anyone believes the skull reconstruction looks similar to someone who has not been seen in several years, please call the Pittsburg County Sheriff’s Office at (918) 423-5858.
