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.
Anyone with information is asked to call Sgt. Charles Green at 612-673-3217.
