The Tacoma Police Department and the Pierce County Medical Examiner’s Office are asking for help in identifying a person that was found deceased. A rendering of how the deceased would appear has been provided by the Pierce County Medical Examiner.
The deceased is believed to have had a strong brow ridge and a right nostril that was slightly lower than the left. Additionally, the deceased was missing upper and lower teeth.
The deceased was located on the hillside beside Pacific Avenue and State Route 705 in February. His identity is unknown. The subject is between 30 and 50 years of age. He is about 5’ 5” and had a stocky build. The deceased was possibly a transient and could have recently relocated to Tacoma from another area. He would have last been seen sometime in the late Summer to early Fall of 2017.
Anyone with information on the identity of the deceased or his whereabouts from that timeframe is asked to call their local law enforcement agency with the information.
