They are expected to release the victim’s name and what they call “quite an amazing story” about the life of the victim and the trail that led to his identification.

Those that have worked with the remains are invited to come and tell their story as to how they were able to obtain a positive ID.The case stared in 1979 with the discovery of a headless torso of a man. A young girl found more partially mummified remains, some wrapped in burlap, in 1991. The DNA Doe Project and an ISU Anthropologist have been working on the case as well.
