CNY Cold Case Files: The Case Of The Unidentified Skeleton
Did you know that New York State Police are still investigating a murder case from 1991?
The case involves a skeleton that was found in Niagara County in 1991 by two teenagers who were picking berries in Lewiston, NY.
The remains found were tied up with cord, and gagged with a washcloth, but nobody knew who the victim was.
After investigation, police assume the man was a 5' 7" - 5' 10" African American between 30 -45 years old. He also had broken ribs, and healed fractures on his face that are believed to be from boxing.
He was found wearing a white v-neck t-shirt and light-colored underwear.
The way the man died also remains a mystery State Troopers are trying to solve.
If you or anyone you know has information relating to this case, contact Senior Investigator John Dipasquale of the New York State Police Bureau of Criminal Investigation in Lockport at (716) 434-5589.
