Jackson County John Doe was a man whose partial remains were found in 1978. His cause of death was impossible to determine but foul play is suspected.

Case

On August 15, 1978, a group of loggers called the police to report a human skull that they had discovered in a remote wooded area while at work. An additional search by authorities resulted in the discovery of a vertebrata. The skull was about 10 feet away from garbage bags that appeared to have been converted into a makeshift carrying device with twist ties, masking tape, and chains.

Clothing and accessories

  • Near the remains, a silver "Medi-Stud" earring was located.
    • This suggests the male possibly had at least one of his ears pierced, if this belonged to him.
