20 years ago a child’s body was found in DeKalb County. New images could help identify him

In 1999, the body of an African American child was found in a small church cemetery in DeKalb County. The child has remained unidentified for 20 years.

Today, the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children released a new reconstruction image of what the little boy may have looked like in life.

Investigators determined that the young boy was of African American descent, between the ages of 4 and 8 years old, and likely died about 3 to 6 months prior to discovery. He was estimated to be between 3’10” and 4’2” and about 45-60 pounds.

He was found wearing an XL blue plaid and navy hooded sweatshirt, red denim jeans, and Timberland boots.

The results of advanced forensic analysis of his bones and teeth suggest that the child was likely born and raised in the Southeast United States, most likely Georgia or Florida.
