Police are investigating two suspicious deaths, one the skeletal remains of a woman and the other a man found dead behind a business – both in Gwinnett County.
So far, police have not been able to identify the man and the woman found more than a week apart. And they have not been able to determine the cause of their deaths.
But they are hoping someone will recognize the pictures released Wednesday of the man’s tattoos.
They have also released a picture of the woman’s T-shirt, which appears to be from a 2008 memorial function for the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.
The man was found dead on Monday behind a business at 25 Technology Pkwy. in Peachtree Corners, according to Gwinnett County police.
They received a call shortly before 2:30 a.m. about a suspicious person sleeping or possibly dead.
“When officers arrived on scene they discovered a male deceased with several head injuries from an unknown origin,” Cpl. Smith said.
The large frame white male is between 5 feet, 10 inches and 6 feet, 2 inches tall and weighs about 200 lbs, he said.
An autopsy proved inconclusive on what caused the man’s death, and they have reached nowhere in trying to identify the man, Cpl. Smith said.
“In light of this, detectives have decided to release images of the tattoos,” Cpl. Smith said. “The tribal tattoo was on the deceased’s upper arm. We are not disclosing the location of the Mickey Mouse tattoo at this time.”
The skeletal remains of the woman were found on Aug. 5, about 1 p.m. near 1414 Azalea Drive in Lawrenceville.
The county’s medical examiner’s office was able to narrow the age range of the remains to between 19 and 22 years old, police said.
Her height is estimated to be between 5 feet, 8 inches and 6 feet tall.
The T-shirt, which appears to be from a 2008 memorial function for the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., read in part, “BELOVED COMMUNITY MARCH, MEMPHIS, TN.” and “Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.” and “In rememberance (sic) there is life/A night of storytelling/1968 – 2008/ THE MAN/ THE MISSION/ THE MOVEMENT/ I Have A Dream/ National Civil Rights Movement.”
Both deaths have been ruled suspicious.
Anyone with information on these cases is asked to contact Gwinnett County detectives at (770) 513-5300.
