Tampa Bay Cold Case Project | CASE 9

Bus Shelter

    On October 5, 1999, the St. Petersburg Police Department found the body of a deceased man at 1800 66th Street North in a bus shelter.  The man was most likely between 30-50 years old, around 5’9” tall, and weighed about 173 pounds.   His hair was slightly curly and dark blonde in color and has mild bilateral frontal balding. He also had a dark blonde and gray mustache and full beard on his face.  He had blue eyes and a semi-circular scar was found on his lower abdomen.  

    An artist’s rendering was made of the man’s face with the hope that someone would recognize this man.  In addition, when the man was found, he was wearing a white t-shirt, black mesh shorts with red interior lining, black “Air Nike” tennis shoes, and eyeglasses with the left ear piece missing.   He had most of his teeth, with some dental work, and a crown on his bottom right front tooth.

    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.
