  • Police now having another attempt at solving the case
  • 5ft 1in man lay buried at the side of one of Long Island's busiest roads
  • Case nicknamed the 'Members Only murder' because of the type of jacket worn by the victim

It was the car accident that uncovered a murder.
As a young mother’s vehicle skidded to a halt on a Long Island, New York highway, remarkably she and her three-year-old son had escaped without a scratch despite careering off the road.
However, she was about to make an important, yet shocking discovery.

Although the car had come to rest on top of some brambles that ran alongside the Northern State Parkwam, it was what the woman stepped onto that set the mystery in motion: a human skull.

Recognize him? Investigators initially thought the man, who was wearing this shirt when found, was a boy because of his small stature. Dental examination revealed he could have been as old as 55

Hidden from view: The skeleton was discovered here, at the side of the Northern Parkway, hidden from view





Concealed: The body was found in woods that run along the center of the highway and that few, if any people, ever walk along


Within hours of the gruesome discovery in March 2004, investigators from the New York State Police began to recover the rest of a fully clothed male skeleton – the body of which had been partially stuffed into a plastic bag.
The police were stumped. They had no idea who the man was or how he died – and more importantly, who dumped his body.

Luckily, there were some clues that cops were able to seize upon and they earnestly begin to generate a profile of the victim.
One of their best clues to his identity was an item of clothing, an iconic artefact from the era of Pac-Man and MTV – his 1980s Members Only jacket.

Evidence: It's known as the 'Members Only case', named because the man, his entire, fully clothed skeleton had been stuffed into a plastic bag and when eventually unearthed, was wearing a Members Only jacket

If he had a Afro Comb with him, maybe they should have a hair do with an Afro?

At the very least he probably had a curly perm. A lot of people in the Disco Era with curly perms used picks instead of combs. I wonder who he is!!!

Amazing, I don't believe in coincidences. Hope this crime is solved so this man can rest in peace.

I hope so. It would be terrible to not only be murdered, but to have nobody notice you were gone.
