Who Is This Dead Man? LBPD Reconstructs Face Of Beating/Arson Victim. Asks Public's Help to Identify Him

Victim sketch 1(May 9, 2002) -- LBPD now calls him "John Doe #213." They discovered his body, burned beyond recognition, inside the burned ruins of an abandoned home at 329 E. Louise. They believe he suffered blunt force trauma to his head before the building was set on fire on September 29, 2001.

But police don't know who he is...and didn't know what he looked like until now.

Victim sketch 2With the victim's body badly charred and his identity unknown, LBPD sought assistance from a forensic artist who used the victim's skull to reconstruct what he may have looked like before his death.

Victim sketch 3Police now ask the public's help in identifying him. He may be of mixed race heritage, roughly 23-35 years old, 4'11" to 5'3" tall, 100 pounds. He is described as wearing an earring in his left ear with both a red ad green stone in the fitting.

Anyone with information regarding this case is asked to call Homicide Detectives Steven Smith, Hector Nieves or Scott Lasch at (562) 570-7244,
