“Randy”

“Randy” is the name given to the skeletal remains of a man found in an orange grove off Curley Road in San Antonio, Florida, in January 1989. He is thought to have been discovered 6 months after he had died, and he died from a gunshot wound in a suspected homicide.

“Randy” is believed to be between 30 and 50 years old at the time of his death, and he stood between 5″6′ and 5″7′. He was a white male and had reddish/brown hair. His eye colour could not be determined due to the state of his remains, and neither could his weight.

His teeth were not in good condition, as he had upper and lower partial denture plates which had been made out of chrome cobalt and acrylic. The dentures appeared to be relatively new as there were hardly any stains or wear on them. Tooth #15 was tilted mesially, tooth #17 was chipped and tooth #20 was rotated distally. He also had generalised periodontal disease.

“Randy” also had a couple of distinctive tattoos.

The first was a green flaming dragon winding around a confederate flag and a nude woman who was wearing red high heels on his left forearm.

The second was the letters “HFD” below a swastika and a Norse cross with Harley Davidson wings in front of a confederate flag on his left upper arm.

At the time of his death, “Randy” was wearing brown cowboy boots, Navy blue work pants size 32 and inseam 28 which had two spots of red paint on them and there was a tag on the waistband with the name “Randy” written on it, a Sunbelt Sportswear black sleeveless shirt with “Black Hills of South Dakota” written on the front and a Native American in front of several teepees and a shield was on the back, a grey sock with yellow and blue stripes and a white sock with red stripes.

He also had the following items with him at the time of his death: a pink gas lighter, a green gas lighter, a few pellets of birdshot, a quarter dated 1980, an empty can of Budweiser and thick-lensed glasses from the Givenchy brand.

It has been over 33 years since “Randy” was found, will we ever know his true identity?
