Cuyahoga County John Doe was a male located in 1969 in Cleveland, Ohio. His dismembered remains were discovered inside a barrel behind a residence.

Project Porchlight, a local Akron group specializing in cold cases, began assisting with the case in March 2021.


The man's remains had been dismembered and placed inside a barrel filled with a chemical that was likely intended to deteriorate the body at a faster pace. He had been struck on the head and shot nine times.
