    patstar Found 1991, Unidentified Male

    GREENVILLE State Police investigators say they need the public's help as they try to solve a 27-year-old mystery: Who was the well-dressed man whose body was revealed after a swamp was drained off Woods Road?

    The man, believed to be in his mid-60s, was wearing blue trousers, blue socks, a yellow long-sleeved fitted shirt, a knitted sweater and size-10 wingtip shoes when he was found on Sept. 14, 1991.

    The discovery was made a few months after a nearby landowner got permission from the state to remove a local beaver dam on land near Interstate 84 in Orange County. Once the dam was taken out, the 3 to 4 feet of standing water drained off, exposing the remains.

    State Police have not been able to identify the man, and have not said how he died. They believe he died sometime between 1975 and 1986.

    A number of personal belongings were found with the body including a pair of horn-rimmed bifocal glasses bought from D.J. Riehle Opticians, an Orange County business whose name was found imprinted on the glasses. State troopers said no purchase records exist from the 1970s but investigators say the glasses suggest the man was from somewhere in the Hudson Valley.

    A Timex watch, a black plastic wallet, a green canvas bag and keys were also found with the body. The swamp water left the information in the wallet and the memo book illegible, troopers said.

    The man, who stood 5-foot-6, also had 75 cents on him the latest coin dated 1972.

    The body was found in an area near Woods Road, 200 yards south of Tap Stone Lane. The second street used to be known as Eaton Lane.

    State Police say that anyone with information that could help identify the man can call Investigator Stephen Malone at 845-344-5353.
