HEWITT, TX (KXXV) -

An assistant professor at McLennan Community College has completed a facial reconstruction for skeletal remains found in Hewitt on September 6.

On Sept. 6, Police were called out to the 100 block of Bridle Trail in Hewitt, about human remains being found. Two sets of human remains were found and they were sent to Dallas to be examined by the Institute of Forensic Sciences. Cadaver dogs also searched the area.

The initial autopsy results show that the set of remains for John Doe #1, are those of a white male, who was between 42 and 55 years old. He was between 5'2" and 5'8" tall and had a square chin and crooked nose.

The set of remains for John Doe #2, are believed to be those of a white male, between the age of 35 and 45 and between 5'9 and 6'3.

On September 23, Hewitt Detectives contacted Suzanne Baldon, an assistant professor of Criminal Justice/Forensic Science at McLennan Community College, to reconstruct the exterior features of the skull recovered in Hewitt.

Professor Baldon is an expert in facial reconstruction and gave detectives a reconstructed face of John Doe #1.

Police say this is not an exact likeness of the person, but they feel it is a very close representation. The features of the reconstructed face are very close to how they would appear in real life.

Anyone who recognizes, or might know the identity of John Doe #1 is asked to call the Hewitt Police Department at 254-666-6272.
