The body found in the Elbe

On July 6, 2016, a man's decomposing body was discovered in a metal tool box in the Elbe river near the German town of Vockerode. One year later, the body of the man remains unidentified. He had a ring with the name Michaela engraved on it, and that same name was tattooed on his forearm as well. After some sleuthing, it turns out that the tattoo is based on the Back to Black font made by Misti Hammers in 2016. Misti had originally placed it on the Dafont site, but it eventually made it to several minor download sites as well. Still, the likelihood is great that the victim at some point downloaded it from Dafont, due to the sheer volume of that site's downloads. Police are now trying to get all German IP addresses associated with the downloads of Back to Black in the hope of identifying the victim. Back to Black, according to Misti, was published on May 8, 2017, which places the murder between May 8 and July 6, 2016.
