The State Department of Justice has completed a clay "facial reconstruction" of a possible homicide victim, discovered in Butte County 18 years ago.
His remains were found in an irrigation district on March 12,1998 at the intersection of Richvale Highway and McRae Road.
Thursday, Butte County Sheriff's officials released images of what the man would have looked like.
He is believed to be Hispanic, Asian or Native American, between 28 and 42 years old and 5'6" to 5'8" tall.
The man was wearing a white, 1984 "L.A. Olympic Games" t shirt, a fleece sweater and blue tennis shoes.
It's believed he may have been dead for one to two years before the remains were discovered and investigators say there was blunt force trauma to the right side of the victim's skull.
Anyone who has information that might help identify the person or if you are missing a family member that may match this information, you are asked to contact the Butte County Sheriff's Office Tip Line at (530) 538-7671.
