Vockerode John Doe was a man discovered in the Elbe River in a crate on the 5th of July 2016. 

Discovery

On the 5th of July, 2016, a man was kayaking in the Elbe River in Germany where he noticed a suspicious looking crate in the water. He contacted authorities, who discovered Vockerode John Doe. 

The crate was a toolbox produced in Germany, particularly during the 1990s. It had two stickers; a logo for the manufacturer of the crate (BERTA) and a logo for a German radio called "DF". Written on the side of the crate was the name "Albert Gluck".

The crate had been determined to have been thrown off of a bridge by two or more people above the Elbe River, near the A9 Highway. It was most likely thrown off of the side of the bridge headed towards Munich, Germany
