Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner and Cleveland Division of Police Ask for Public’s Help in Identifying Child’s Remains Found on Longmead Avenue
CLEVELAND – Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner Dr. Thomas P. Gilson and the Cleveland Division of Police are asking for help from the public and media in identifying a juvenile male found in the rear yard at 12902 Longmead Avenue on September 20, 2017.
“Our residents and local media have been critical resources in solving an unidentified cold case already this year, and I have confidence they will help us identify this young child,” said Dr. Gilson.
The Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner’s Office has exhausted all efforts to identify the decedent, and have been unsuccessful thus far. The Cuyahoga County Regional Forensic Science Laboratory developed a DNA profile of the decedent, which determined the decedent’s sex is male, and this can be used for comparison with potential matches.  Additional details include:
  • Sex: Male
  • Race: Undetermined at this point
  • Estimated Age: Approximately 4 years old

Anyone with information is asked to contact investigators at 216-623-5464 or anonymously via Crimestoppers at 216-25-CRIME
