The St. Tammany Parish Coroner’s Office and the DNA Doe Project announced that they have positively identified the victim of a 2016 homicide investigation.
Officials identified the man as Kleanthis Konstantinidis.
In July of 2016, St. Tammany Sheriff’s Office discovered the dead body on Highway 90 near the Rigolets. The body was badly decomposed and the person appeared to have been deceased for several days. The victim’s arms were dismembered, and one leg above the knee was also dismembered, according to the Sheriff’s Office.
The coroner determined that the body was that of a male, approximately 5-feet-10, with a scar on his chest from prior open heart surgery.
In April 2019, the Biloxi Police Department found a human foot in a bucket during an investigation in Mississippi that had the same DNA as the body found in St. Tammany Parish in 2016.
