Michael Perdue was a young man found deceased in Covington, Virginia in 1986.


The skull was located by fishermen and more portions of the partial skeleton were recovered over the next few days. His mandible was not found, alongside many other bones. It was initially believed that he died years before.

The male had no determinable distinctive features and was found alongside brown cloth that may have been the fragments of a glove or a sock.


Perdue was identified in October 2016. He initially disappeared on May 2, 1986 after fleeing from a "firebomb incident." It is thought he drowned while trying to cross a river.
