Plymouth Township Police along with Crime Stoppers are seeking public assistance to identify human remains found on Haggerty Road south of Schoolcraft-fifteen years ago. Crime Stoppers has posted a $2,500 reward.
Police believe body parts wrapped in carpet and left by the side of the road not far from the CSX Railroad tracks were found May 10, 1997 and are those of a white male who served in the military. The deceased was wearing blue shorts and white tube socks with the logo, “USA-80” according to police records.
Forensic evidence shows the man stood between 5’6” and 5’9” tall and would be 50-70 years old today. Plymouth Township Police Chief Tom Tiderington said they have requested that the Michigan State Police crime lab prepare clay renderings of the skull to aid in the identification process.
Tiderington said this is one of the few unsolved cases in the department’s detective bureau.
“Every few years we open this up with hopes of solving the case,” Tiderington said.
“The deceased have a family some place and somebody knows something.”
