On May 9, 1976, the beaten, badly burned, and partly decomposed body of a young white male was found in a field near Shepherdsville, Kentucky. He was wearing a blue fishnet body shirt, white cotton western-style shirt with snap buttons, and light-blue cotton denim jeans. His belt, socks, and shoes were missing, and he did not possess any identification or jewelry. The victim had poor, if any, dental care. His upper left molar had rotted off at the gum line, and a lower bicuspid tooth was crooked and had grown inward toward his tongue. Evidence recovered from the victim’s body suggests that he was involved in homosexual activity prior to his death.
