On April 3, 1989, a body washed up on the shore of Lake Erie in Lorain, a city in northeast Ohio. For almost 30 years, the identity of the body remained a mystery. But, thanks to technological strides in forensics, the FBI was able to determine recently that the body was that of 36-year-old Terrence Patrick Brennan, who is believed to have been from a Metro Detroit suburb.

Lorain police and the Lorain coroner have been unable to find any of Brennan's kin, and are asking the public to help. Anyone with information regarding the identity of family members of Brennan are asked to contact Det. John Dougherty of the Lorain Police Detective Bureau at 440-204-2105.
