A heavy fishing net tends to come as a welcome sign to trawlers – but today the crew has pulled in something terrifying. The body of a man has been found limp in the nets, and authorities have no way to identify him. However, everything changes when they realize he’s wearing a 25-year-old Rolex. The timepiece becomes the first clue in a case with more tangles than the net that caught the man’s body in the first place.
Finding a body without any form of identification gave the police officers little to work with. Cops had initially assumed that the man must have committed suicide and perhaps hadn’t wanted anyone to know who he was. Nevertheless, the investigators didn’t give up on their John Doe, and the man remained unidentifiable for six weeks.
