PITTSBURG CO., Okla. - The OSBI hopes a just released sketch in hopes of identifying human remains found in a wooded area near Quinton in Pittsburg County on December 12, 2012.
OSBI Forensic Artist Harvey Pratt did a facial reconstruction after several human bones and a skull were discovered.
The medical examiner has determined the remains are that of a white and/or Hispanic male between 40 and 60 years old.
The victim is believed to have stood between 5’3” and 5’8” tall. He was right handed and at some point in this life suffered a broken lower left rib.
Investigators believe the body was placed in that wooded area between two and five years ago. The medical examiner’s office is unable to determine the cause and manner of death at this time.
KRMG is told that the description does not fit any missing persons in the surrounding area.
Pittsburg County Sheriff’s investigators are hopeful the skull reconstruction will help someone recognize the victim.
Anyone who thinks the skull reconstruction looks similar to someone who has not been seen in several years is asked to call the Pittsburg County Sheriff’s Office at (918) 423-5858.
