SALEM, N.H. (AP) — The New Hampshire Attorney General’s Office hopes photographs of the reconstructed face of a 1969 slaying victim will help identify the man.

The body of a white man between 28 and 40 years old was dumped off Interstate 93 in Salem and found by a road crew on Aug. 7, 1969, in a small water pit. He had been shot four times.

The attorney general’s office and Salem Police Department reopened the investigation in December 2012. The body was exhumed from an unmarked grave in Pine Grove Cemetery last year and some of the bones sent to the FBI Nuclear DNA Unit for examination.

The skull was sent to forensic artist Harvey Pratt of the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation who reconstructed it.

Photos are available on the attorney general’s website:
