Las Vegas police are trying to identify a man whose body was found March 6 by workers cleaning up a vacant desert lot.
Police released a sketch of the man Thursday. They said he does not match any missing persons reports on file.
The body was found in the 700 block of North Tonopah Drive, near Martin Luther King Boulevard and Owens Avenue. A police statement said an autopsy was performed March 7, “and trauma was discovered indicative of homicide.”
Police have described the man as Hispanic, between the ages of 35 and 45, 5 feet 5 inches tall and 135 pounds. He was wearing a green sweatshirt, a black-and-white sweater, gray pants and brown leather shoes. He had a thin mustache, black and gray hair, a decayed upper front tooth and a silver wedding band on his left ring finger.
Anyone with information about the man’s identity or death may call Crime Stoppers at 385-5555 or the Las Vegas police homicide section at 828-3521.
