Sevier County John Doe was a man whose skeleton was found in a wooded area of Tennessee by a random bystander. It appears that he had been dead for a very long time before his remains were recovered. The path where the remains were found had been closed off for several years.

Sevier County John Doe was positively identified as Dennis Allan Hunter in May 2020 by DNA testing.
