The authorities are searching for the identity of a man that was found a swampy area in Town of Greenville, New York.
On September 14, 1991, a landowner was removing a local beaver dam near Interstate 84 in Orange County off Woods Road and Eaton Lane (Tap Stone Lane). Once the dam was removed, the water drained off and skeletal remains were found. Forensic evidence leads State Police to believe the man died sometime between 1975 and 1986.
The remains are believed to be that of a man in his mid-60s, about five feet, six inches tall. He was wearing a pair of blue nylon trousers, blue knit socks, a yellow long-sleeve fitted shirt, a knit sweater and size 10 wing-tip shoes. Also found were a pair of horn-rimmed bifocal “Leonardo Style” glasses bought from D.J. Riehle Opticians, a Timex watch, a black plastic wallet, a green canvas bag, a black plastic memo book, keys and approximately 75 cents in change with the latest coin dated 1972. Information in the wallet and memo book was unreadable because it was in the water. The man may have been a resident of Hudson Valley.
Anyone with information about the man’s identity is asked to call the State Police BCI at 845-344-5353.
