The Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office is seeking the public’s help in determining the identity of a man whose skeletal remains were found on March 8, 2015, in a remote part of Yavapai County near Juniper Woods Ranch between Ash Fork and Drake.

The remains have been determined to be a man likely of Latino or mixed ancestry. However, Asian or derived-Asian ancestries cannot be excluded definitively.

The man’s estimated age is 21 to 46 years with greatest likelihood 25 to 35 years, and a height between 5 feet 5 inches tall and five feet nine inches tall. The man had dental restorations including multiple enamel pearls. It is believed he had been deceased for up to one year at the time the remains were found.

A facial reconstruction was completed to help determine his identity.

The Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office is seeking information regarding the identity of this person. Please contact Detective John McDormett at 928-777-7334 or leave information anonymously by calling Yavapai Silent Witness at 1-800-932-3232.
