Deputies have few clues to identify body found in trash bag
A pair of hunters in Michigan found a body stuffed in a trash bag and dumped in a ditch on Sunday and investigators have few clues to identify the victim.
The hunters called police as soon as they saw the remains when cutting open the bag they found near Warner and Olive roads in Gratiot County, officials said.
An autopsy revealed that the man was about 60 to 70 years old, about 5-foot-9 and weighed 185 pounds. He also had two identifiable tattoos: an eagle on his right shoulder and a skull wearing a cowboy hat and a handkerchief on his left shoulder. The skull tattoo is also bordered by the words Texas, Florida and Michigan, according to the Gratiot County Sheriff’s Office.
Deputies said the man appeared to have a recent injury to one or more fingers on his left hand, as his middle and ring fingers were found taped together.
Anyone with information about the man’s identity is asked to call investigators at (989) 875-5214.
