MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Minneapolis Police have released the picture of a tattoo in hopes it’ll lead to the identity of a badly-burned body found next to a dumpster fire last week.

On Aug. 7 at 11:29 p.m., dispatch received a call of a fire in a dumpster on 39th Street East between Snelling and Minnehaha avenues. Police were called shortly after when a body was found next to the dumpster.

Now, police are asking the public’s help in identifying the victim. The body is that of a 5-foot-2-inch male victim, weighing 152 pounds with black hair. The victim is believed to be Hispanic or Latino.

The victim also has a tattoo very similar to the one pictured below. It’s on the victim’s upper right arm, extending from the top of the shoulder to just above the elbow.
