Cops Use Dummy To Seek Public's Help In Identifying Guy Who Died 31 Years Ago

More than 30 years after a man died in Oklahoma City, investigators are seeking the public’s help in identifying the decedent--whose death was not ruled a homicide--via the creation of a life-like dummy.

Oklahoma City cops and the state’s Medical Examiner’s Office this month released photos of a reconstruction created by a forensic artist with the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation. As seen above (click to enlarge), the dummy is wearing an OSBI t-shirt.

It is unclear what prompted law enforcement to create a “reconstruction of what this man may have looked like” when he died in February 1981.
