Spanning over 400 miles through four states, the Connecticut River is the longest body of water in New England. Popular for fishing, swimming, boating, it is sadly a place where people go to commit suicide and criminals dump the bodies of their victims.
On April 21st, 1969, police in Glastonbury, CT (two towns southeast of Hartford), pulled out the body of an unidentified white male possibly aged 55 to 65 years of age. He was estimated to be about five foot nine inches (175 centimeters) and 170 pounds (77 kilograms). The deceased wore blacks leather shoes, heavy socks, a belt made of leather and what may have been a red & dark striped shirt. The autopsy performed discovered that the man had a hernia operation done on his left groin.
Perhaps most telling about the man was that he had three tattoos. The first was of a naked girl on his right arm. On his left arm was a bird’s wing and the letters W-A-R-D. It is possible that there were other letters on the arm, the deceased may have had the name edward or howard but the body did suffer from severe decomposition. At the time of death, a Hartford Courant article stated that the body could have been in the water from 6 months to 2 years. It is unknown where the body came from, and that heavy flooding could have dislodged the body from a wooded area near the river further north. This case is not on NAMUS and is still listed as Unidentified in the Glastonbury Death Records.

Archived Hartford Courant Article about the case. Glastonbury Vital Statistics were never changed to indicate that this person was ever identified.
