Unidentified Wiki

Dakota County John Doe was a male who was found deceased in Rosemount, Minnesota in 2014.


The decedent had been living in a decommissioned railroad switching shed located behind American Legion, which only appeared to include few personal items and a makeshift bed. It is suspected that the time of death was between October and December 2013 due to the newspapers found inside the shed.

While alive, he may have been a frequent visitor to a nearby Kwik Trip convenience store on 14810 Robert Trail South.
