Detectives Seek Your Help Identifying Skeletal Remains

EPHRATA, Wash. - Grant County Major Crimes Detectives hope citizens can help them identify a man whose skeletal remains were found Nov. 23 near O'Sullivan Dam in southeast Grant County.

The remains were sent to the King County Medical Examiner's Office in Seattle. Based on their exam, descriptive information on the victim was developed along with a rendering by forensic artist Natalie Murry of what the victim may have looked like.

Please keep in mind the man's actual hair length and color, facial hair or skin complexion may have been different since it was not possible to determine those features. The forensic drawing is based in an assessment of the skull and what they man may have looked like.

Based on the forensic examination, the victim is believed to be a white or Hispanic male, around 35-years-old, who stood between 5-foot-1 and 6-foot-1 inches tall. The victim had a single gunshot wound, and the circumstances about that injury are unknown.

The body had been outside for perhaps a year. The victim's teeth were in poor condition, and silver-colored dental caps were affixed to his two front teeth. One of those teeth was broken beneath the cap.

The victim was wearing multiple layered clothing including:

*    "Phat Farm" long sleeve t-shirt
*    "Phat Farm" short sleeve t-shirt
*    "Route 66" dark denim pants, waist size 28
*    Insulated vest, tan and orange colored
*    Size 8½ black shoes with Velcro closures
*    Black stocking cap

Anyone with possible information about this man should call Detective Kim Cook at 509-754-2011 ext. 471, or send information to crimetips@co.grant.wa.us. Tipsters can remain anonymous.
