Shoshone County John Doe was a male who was found deceased on a walking trail in Jacobs Gulch in Wallace, Idaho in 2002.


He had died of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound to the right side of his head. The gun was a 9mm Smith & Wesson Model 915 semiautomatic. It was traced back to a man in Houston, Texas who had sold the gun in 1996 but no leads could be generated as he had destroyed his records.

Some agencies list his date of recovery as June 12, 2002.
