Unidentified White Male
Missouri River near mile marker 662.62
Rural Route B
Fremont County, IA
Case Number: 66-00724
May 26, 1966
On May 26, 1966, the body of a white male subject was found in the Missouri River near mile marker 662.62. The subject’s body was in somewhat advanced stages of decomposition and identification has not yet been made.
When the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation (DCI) established a Cold Case Unit in 2009, this case was one of about 150 unsolved crimes listed on the Cold Case Unit’s new website as those the DCI hoped to solve using latest advancements in DNA technology.
Although federal grant funding for the DCI Cold Case Unit was exhausted in December 2011, the DCI continues to assign agents to investigate cold cases as new leads develop or as technological advances allow for additional forensic testing of original evidence.
The DCI remains committed to the resolution of Iowa’s cold cases and will continue to work diligently with local law enforcement partners to bring the perpetrators of these crimes to justice for the victims and their families.
