Delaware authorities hope sculpture will crack decades-old cold case murder

Authorities say they hope an exhibit at a Delaware museum will crack a cold case involving an unidentified man found murdered nearly two decades ago.

The exhibit on display at the Delaware State Police Museum and Educational Center along DuPont Highway in Dover shows a sculpture of a man's face -- created by a forensic artist using unidentified remains found near an interstate in 1993, DelawareOnline reported.

Police are hoping someone will see the face and recognize the man, described as 20 to 35 years old and of Asian, American Indian or Eskimo ethnicity with long black hair, according to the website.

The victim was found Sept. 13, 1993, off Marsh Road near I-95 in Brandywine Hundred.

“Maybe someday, someone will walk in here and go, ‘I know who that is,’ or ‘That’s my uncle,’” curator John R. Alstadt Jr. told the website.
