STATELINE NEWS -- The man known as John Clinton Doe had a real name -- but no one knows what it is. That’s the question that keeps Rock County Deputy Coroner analyst Jack Friess up at night.

In 1995, a hunter discovered a body near Turtle Creek in the town of Bradford. Because of the proximity to Clinton, the Rock County coroner’s office dubbed the unidentified man as John Clinton Doe, or JCD for short. According to forensic evidence, the body likely went undiscovered for about a year and largely was decomposed at the time of its discovery.
