Who is found in Drum in Ravine? – NBC10 Philadelphia

Investigators in a New Jersey community need help identifying a man found in a 55-gallon steel drum dumped in a ravine on private property more than 20 years ago.

The two-decade-old cold case has produced a sketch of the man who was recovered at a Marlboro residence in April 2002, Monmouth County prosecutors said.

A family living on the property discovered the steel barrel on April 19 and notified local police a short time later. At the end of the month, officers opened the sealed drum to discover the man’s body inside.

Monmouth officials said the body was severely decomposed and no wallet or identifying information was found on his person.

The man’s death was ruled a homicide after an official autopsy revealed he died from multiple injuries, including a stab wound to his heart.

Prosecutors listed the following items found on the man’s body:

  • A short-sleeved red, white, blue and yellow striped shirt golf shirt with an inner label reading Chaps Ralph Lauren and a size XL. The words Chaps and Ralph Lauren are printed randomly across the entire shirt.;
  • Carhart Utility or Carpenter Style Jeans the size is 34 × 32;
  • A pair of ankle high chukka style black Timberland boots size 9 ½ wide;
  • Hanes jockey shorts, size 38; and
  • A Belt with 3-pin belt buckle.

A sketch of the man was made based on forensic evidence. Anyone with information can contact the Monmouth County Crime Stoppers confidential phone line at (800) 671-4400.
