AKRON, Ohio - Forensic investigators used cutting-edge technology to create a facial reconstruction for a man whose skull was found last year outside an abandoned house in Akron.

The reconstruction, created using a 3D printer and clay, is a first for an investigation in Northeast Ohio. The Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation created reconstructions three other times over the past seven months for cases across the state.

The skull in Akron was found Jan. 8, 2016 outside an abandoned house on Marcy Street near Cole Avenue. Investigators later linked it to more skeletal remains found inside the house, which was destroyed by a Nov. 24, 2012 house fire.

Forensic evidence suggests the man died before the fire, but his remains were not found during searches of the house that happened after the blaze, officials said.

Investigators have exhausted all leads in their attempt to identify the man, and his DNA did not match anyone on file in state or federal databases. The facial reconstruction is the best chance investigators have for identifying him, officials said during a Friday news conference at the Akron Police Department.

"[The reconstruction] is the face of a loved one; this is someone's brother or father," Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine said. "Somebody out there knows who this person is."

Only after the last tree has been
cut down;
Only after the last fish has been
Only after the last river has been
Only then will you realize
that money cannot be eaten.
