Police release sketch of unidentified body

- Police have released a new sketch of the remains of a body found in Buford in 2015.

Officials say the skeleton was found in a wooded area between Satellite Boulevard and Buford Highway in June 2015 and had probably been in the woods for several years. There were no signs of trauma or foul play at the scene and the Medical Examiner was not able to determine a cause of death.

On Wednesday the GBI's Forensic Artist Kelly Lawson released a new reconstructed image, hoping that it'll help identify the man.

The unnamed victim is estimated to be between 25 and 40 years old. His height may be between 5-feet-3-inches and 5-feet-7-inches tall. He had at least one root canal in his lower jaw.

The man's hair color, skin tone, and length of hair is unknown, police said.

If you have any information that can help in this case, please contact Gwinnett County detectives at (770) 513-5300.
