Quay County John Doe is a man found in rural Quay County, New Mexico on August 2, 1995.


The victim was found by a Oklahoma family who were picking wildflowers in the area after walking north of a frontage road, into a field. They found him located in an embankment partially clothed and along with a blanket. One or both of his hands were not recovered.


  • Uncemented 'Miller-Galante' prosthesis with black poly 8.5 insert and two anterior screws in one of the tibias, size regular and was made by the pharmaceutical company Zimmer. Examined by a local orthopedic physician, the physician determined the implants were implanted between 1982 and 1990. They were likely implanted in the mid-1980s, specifically 1984-1986 and not likely from Mexico.
