BOULDER COUNTY, Colo. — Twenty-six years after a man’s death in Boulder County, investigators are still trying to uncover who he was and how he died.

On Nov. 11, 1993, human skeletal remains were found near Gregory Canyon in Boulder County. Investigators have not been able to identify the person since then.

An examination of the remains indicated that the person was a Caucasian male between the ages of 25 and 45 years old. He was between 5 feet, 3 inches and 5 feet, 8 inches tall and, at the time of his death, was wearing Levi blue jeans, a white shirt and white tennis shoes. He had shoulder-length dark blonde to light brown hair.

His teeth were in poor condition and he may have anemic.

Based on chemical isotope testing, he may have been born in the southeastern United States and likely lived in southern Florida or central Texas. He did not appear to be a Colorado native.

Beth Buchholtz, a community services officer with the Longmont Police Department, completed a facial reconstruction of the man with and without a beard. The University of Florida also completed a facial approximation.

Anyone who may have information on this cold case, the deceased man or his identity is asked to contact Laurissa Lampi with the Boulder County Coroner’s Office at 303-441-3535 or
