    Placing a photo of the victim along with this piece of news could quickly help to identify the victim.
    It is about accomplishment afterall.

    WE DO NOT WANT TO SEE THE PHOTO OF A DEAD BODY on TELEVISION ……. except in the movies.
    His people will find him if they really care.

    The photo would not be a very accurate likeness of this person because he has already started decomposing. At early stage the body would start bloating and the skin tone becomes darker as there is no blood flow. His facial features would also be affected by the fact that he’s been floating in water for an unknown length of time. As with “live skin” that has been submerged in water it starts “pruning” “dead skin” on the other hand starts to dissolve so to speak because the oil glands on the skin that normally offer “waterproofing” are no longer functioning.
