Sheriff's office releases facial reconstructions hoping to identify man

ORANGEBURG COUNTY, SC (WCSC) - Investigators with the Orangeburg County Sheriff's Office have released digital facial reconstructions of a man whose remains were found last year in a wooded area.

On Jan. 28, 2012, a hunter discovered the human remains in the woods in the area off of Five Chop Road.

"Since we first reported this case last year, we have updated the age of the male to be 15-21 years old and he had a pierced right earlobe," Sheriff Leroy Ravenell said."He was wearing camel Timberland boots size 9 ½, a John Blaze jacket sized 3xl that had lettering around the hood 'Cash Rules Everything Around Me' and red and blue Bugle Boy basketball shorts size 2xl."

Ravenell said he's hopeful that someone will recognize the victim which will allow authorities to notify his family.

"We are grateful for the assistance of the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division for providing us with a composite of what the young man looks like," Ravenell said.

Anyone with information is asked to call investigators at (803) 534-3550 or Crime Stoppers at 1-888-CRIME-SC.
