On Sunday, April 28, 1991 at around 6 pm, two people walking on a hillside near Albert Street in Allentown made a grisly discovery. Scattered on ground, about 300 yards north of the Hamilton Street Bridge, were the skeletal remains of this unknown man. The location is near Canal Park, on the eastern side of the Lehigh River, on the outskirts of what was once the city dump.
In July 1991, the man's teeth, which had been scattered about the hillside where he was found, were used in the creation of a 3-D reconstruction in the hopes that someone would recognize his unique smile. Sadly, no one came forward to identify him and he remains unnamed.
