Slow Harold

“Slow Harold” is the possible nickname of a man whose partial skeletal remains were found in a transient camp in Spokane, Washington on the 14th of July 1981.

It appeared that he had died from a blow to the head, and after he had been murdered there was an attempt made to decapitate his body but the act had not been completed.

“Slow Harold” is described as being a white male between the ages of 40-60, 5″8′ and weighing approximately 150lbs. He had light brown and some grey hair that was cut short.

“Slow Harold” was reportedly wearing a coat when he was found but it is not described in any autopsy report. There were 2 items of clothing that had dry cleaning labels inside of them with the name “Troy Linen Company” and the number “N-1805-71-1”. A clothing label had the name or workplace name “KLENE” written on it in permanent marker.

“Slow Harold” was also carrying a small coin purse with him at the time of his death.

Unfortunately, there are no reconstructions of “Slow Harold”. The image shown below and at the top of this article is of the coin purse he had with him. On the NamUs website, there are a few images of clothing labels and tags from the 2 items of clothing he was wearing at the time.

If you have any information that could be used to identify “Slow Harold”, please contact the Spokane County Medical Examiner’s Office at 509-477-2296.
