Next of kin sought in unidentified human remains case

In an attempt to locate next of kin, investigators are releasing a composite sketch of a man who was found deceased in 2023 and remains unidentified.

In December 2023, the man was found deceased in the doorway of an abandoned building in the 1300 block of Centre Street S. Following an autopsy by the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner, the death was deemed non-criminal. Despite numerous attempts to identify the man by the medical examiner’s office and police, his identity remains unknown and his next of kin remain outstanding.

By releasing this sketch, we hope someone will be able to provide us his name, so we can bring answers to his family who are out there not knowing what happened to him.

He is described as being in his 30s or 40s, approximately 5’7” tall, 120 pounds, with a slim build, brown eyes and black hair. He was found wearing high-top black Vans with white lines on them, black Puma sweatpants, a Barrel N’ Brew white shirt, a Tri-Mountain blue fleece jacket, a Tommy Hilfiger brown puffy jacket and an Athletic Works blue and black jacket.

The sketches contain images of the man’s tattoos and a likeness of his face. His tattoos are described as: “1965,” a crown, “CJW” and “BEAVER” on the left hand above the thumb and index finger; a moth on his right hand; and a rose in a cornucopia on his right inside forearm.
