Dover Police have released photos of a Texas artist's reconstruction of the face of a man discovered dead in November 2012.

Dover Police have received information in the way of a forensic reconstruction of the face of a man who was discovered dead in November 2012.

The man, who appeared to have been deceased for up to three months, was found in the woods near Sam’s Club at West Rustic Lane and Crawford Carroll Drive, said police spokesman Cpl. Mark Hoffman.

The reconstruction includes depictions of the tattoos discovered on the man’s back, Hoffman said.

With little information to work on in the past 18 months, detectives turned to a forensic artist from Texas to reconstruct the man’s features based on a cast of his skull; the reconstruction indicates the man had reddish-brown hair that had been recently cut, as well as whiskers on the sides of his face.

Anyone who may recognize the man is asked to call the Dover Police Criminal Investigation Unit at 736-7111, or Hal Brown, deputy director of the office of the chief medical examiner at (302) 577-3420.
