Other distinguishing characteristics: Known as “Joseph Zale”, to his roommates and acquaintances for 20 years, his identity remains unknown. Most of his teeth are absent. His roommates claim that he was in the Navy in WWII, that he could have been from Pennsylvania, that his last name could have been changed from “Zalenski”, and that he never used a birth date, nor signed his name to any documents. His social security number was false. He worked odd jobs and relied on gambling winnings for financial support.
"The Sutter County Sheriff’s Office is seeking the public’s help in identifying a body that was recovered from the Feather River about three weeks ago. The body was found by a boater around 4:30 p.m. directly under the 10th Street Bridge between Marysville and Yuba City.
The man’s cause of death is pending on toxicology results. There is no evidence of foul play.
The man is described as 5 foot 6, 125 pounds, with dark hair, and multiple tattoos.
Anyone with any information on the identification of this man, you are asked to call the Sutter County Sheriff’s Office (530) 822-7307." https://www.suttersheriff.org/forms/crimetip.aspx
I found these images on Google Earth. I can't find the date but it says 2018 and that certainly looks like it may be a body in the water before the 10th Street bridge in Yuba City. The boat is upriver before the railroad bridge about a mile. It appears damaged but that may be how the images captured the light reflecting off of it.
They are in the same sequence of images so I'm wondering if this was a boating accident and the boat and John Doe were not put together.
This Bing Maps image appears to show that same boat in the same area but in a slightly different position. Sunken perhaps?
15 to 45 year old White
Date found October 13, 2010
Circumstances: Unknown. Incomplete remains discovered by a civilian searching for mushrooms in a wooded area of Joint Base Lewis-McChord (exclusive federal jurisdiction).
The US Army Criminal Investigation Command is offering a $15,000 reward for information about a Jane Doe found in Training area 9 of Joint Base Lewis-McChord Washington 98433 (Pierce County).
On October 13, 2010, the skull of an adult female, approximately 25-40 years old, was
discovered in the vicinity of Spanaway McKenna Highway (WA 507) and Pacific Avenue
South (WA 7) inside of Training Area 9. After an extensive search of the area by CID and
other law enforcement agencies, only a skull and several vertebrae were recovered at the
scene. The rest of the victim’s remains have never been found.
CID wants to stress the most identifiable and notable feature that may lead to the identity of the deceased is a defect of unknown origin on the victim’s front tooth on the lower jaw (pictured above). Although important, the facial reconstruction pictured above is a recreation based on all available forensic evidence and may not be an exact likeness of the deceased. The victim’s race is still unknown at this time, and it is possible that the victim could have been of a mixed ancestry. The Office of the Armed Forces Medical Examiner estimates the victim to have died between April and June of 2010.
The testing revealed the victim may have spent her childhood/adolescence and the last ten years prior to her death in Oregon or California.
