"Roberto" is the possible name of a male whose remains were found in Blissfield Township, Michigan in 1997.

He is currently undergoing testing by the DNA Doe Project.

Case

A farmer found the decedent's naked and insect-infested body in a field off of Corey Highway. The decedent's head and hands were missing and have never been recovered. It is believed he had been in the area for over a week, or possibly 2-3 months before he was found.

Information from a source was developed during the initial investigation that indicated the decedent's possible name being Roberto. The source claimed that Roberto had a wife and two children who would have been in elementary school when he died. He reportedly lived in a white house between McAllen and Weslaco, Texas, where he raised chickens, but he may have been initially from Mexico. Allegedly, he was supposed to be traveling to Chicago and back.

On November 8, 2016, a composite sketch of what Roberto may have looked like was created with the witness and a Michigan State Police sketch artist's help. Around that same time, the Ottawa River in Toledo, Ohio, was searched, but the search results, which have been described as "credible," have not been revealed. It is believed his death was drug-related.
