Decade-old mysterious death case still unsolved

Posted: Updated:
KINGSPORT, TN (WJHL) -

Kingsport Police hope new clues will help them solve a decade-old mystery.

August 11, 2003, someone found a man's body was found floating in the Holston River in Kingsport.

The man had no identification, and no one ever came forward to report a person missing.

This week, Kingsport Police released an artist's rendering of what investigators think the man looked like when he died.

"We're not really investigating it as a crime, but ten years have passed and we still don't know exactly who this person is," said Ptl. Thomas M. Patton, Kingsport Police.

Patton said the man had no upper teeth.   He was carrying a BB&T bank envelope.

If you have information about the man, call Kingsport Police at 423-246-9111.
