MANY, LA (KSLA) - An image sent to the the KSLA newsroom could solve the mystery found at the bottom of a well in Sabine Parish back in 1986. A man's skeletal remains were found there. Retired investigator, Ted De Lacerda has made it his mission to find out the man's identity. De Lacerda has worked on the case since 2006, that's when the man's remains were turned over to him from the Bossier City Coroner's Office. "Most of what I've had to work from are what we call newspaper articles, and that's where I've started from, and it's really all I have," says De Lacerda But now he has a little more, actually, a lot more. He has a face. The man's skull was used by a specialist at LSU in Baton Rouge to reconstruct what his face might look like, and this is it. If the image in this photo looks familiar to you, you could help solve a decades old cold case, and possibly even bring a murderer to justice. Call Ted De Lacerda at 318-256-6246.
