    On July 16, 1992, a man was found on the sidewalk unresponsive and bleeding near 1901 Central Ave., St. Petersburg, Florida.  He never regained consciousness and died two months later.  The man’s identity remains unknown. 

    The white man was approximately 40-60 years old, around 6 feet tall, and weighs about 146 pounds.  His hair was gray and about 4 inches at its maximum length.  He had brown eyes, as well as bushy eyebrows with a mole near the right temple at the end of his eyebrow.  When the man was found, he was wearing a red checkered shirt, blue pants, and wore eyeglasses.  He had also lost all of his teeth during life and was therefore completely edentulous.   An artist’s rendering was made of the man’s face with the hope that someone will recognize him.

    If you have any information regarding the identity of this individual based on the above description and/or the facial reconstruction, please contact the St. Petersburg Police Department.  Contact Investigator Brenda Stevenson in the Homicide Division at 727-893-7164.
