For 37 years, authorities in Hermantown have wondered about the identity of a man whose skeleton was discovered by two girls in the woods behind their house. They still don't know who he was but now have an idea what he looked like.
Forensic scientists using DNA from the bones together with computer enhancements have constructed a clay bust depicting the man. Police tell the Duluth News Tribune they hope someone will recognize the man and help them put a name to the face.
Police announced last year that they were reopening the cold case because improvements in the use of DNA testing might produce a breakthrough.
