If anyone recognizes the face of the victim, please call the police.
The victim's body was found frozen in the Italian Alps. A broken off arrow head was found in his body. He may have died from bleeding out, or a subsequent fall after being shot.
There are indications that the victim was in a fight with at least one other individual, wounding him before dying.
Genetic analysis of the victim's mitochondrial DNA indicates that he belongs to a unique European subclade with very limited distribution among modern Europeans mtDNA samples.
Based on the estimated year of death and murder weapon used (arrow), we have attempted to identify the identity of the victim.
Our primary clue is from Genesis 4:23-24
כג וַיֹּאמֶר לֶמֶךְ לְנָשָׁיו, עָדָה וְצִלָּה שְׁמַעַן קוֹלִי--נְשֵׁי לֶמֶךְ, הַאְזֵנָּה אִמְרָתִי: כִּי אִישׁ הָרַגְתִּי לְפִצְעִי, וְיֶלֶד לְחַבֻּרָתִי.23: Lamech said to his wives, "Adah and Zillah, listen to me; wives of Lamech, hear my words. I have killed a man for wounding me, a young man for injuring me.
כד כִּי שִׁבְעָתַיִם, יֻקַּם-קָיִן; וְלֶמֶךְ, שִׁבְעִים וְשִׁבְעָה
24: If Cain is avenged seven times, then Lamech seventy-seven times"
In the Torah, Lemach describes being in a fight with a man who he subsequently killed. The Midrash expands the story and explicitly states that Lemach actually killed Cain with an arrow.
Is our murder victim John "Otzi the Iceman" Doe none other than the first murderer, Cain?
