State Police continue to investigate more than two-decade-old death

BREWSTER – State Police are continuing to investigate the case of an unidentified man, whose body was found in a wooded area near the Garden Street School in the Village of Brewster on October 9, 1995.  He had no forms of identification on him.

The man’s death was ruled a suicide due to self-inflicted wounds found on his wrists.

Police believe the man was between 40 and 50 years old, five-feet, nine-inches tall, 165 pounds, with brown eyes, well groomed, clean shaven, short black hair with some gray, a receding hairline, a mole on the right side of his face near his nose, medium brown skinned complexion and perfect teeth with no sign of any dental work.

The man could be of either African American or Hispanic ethnicity.

Police said the man was well dressed wearing brown leather Dockers brand penny loafers, dress socks, tan colored Hager casual khaki knit pans, size 33-inch length, two plaid button-down shirts – a long sleeve green, black and yellow plain Kenneth Gordon brand shirt on the outside and a short sleeve plaid Gentleman’s Row brand shirt, blue, green and red. He was also wearing a gold chained crucifix around his neck.

The man was last seen making a purchase of two expensive blankets at a curtain shop in New Rochelle on October 7, 1995. It is believed he traveled to Brewster from the lower Westchester County area via Metro-North Railroad.

Anyone with information about this case is asked to call the State Police Bureau of Criminal Investigation in Brewster at 845-677-7300 or 845-279-8656.
