Authorities Ask For Help Identifying Male Found Dead In Suitcase

DENVER (CBS4) – Authorities in Denver are asking for the public’s help in identifying the person whose body was found in a park on Friday.

A group of teenagers made the grisly discovery on the 1700 block of West Atlantic Place, near Ruby Hill Park. The body was stuffed into a suitcase that was covered with mud and placed in a kiddie pool in the middle of a field.

An autopsy shows the victim is a white or Hispanic male. Denver police released the following details about him:

– Between approximately 15 and 30 years of age
– Slight build
– Brown hair
– Dark, probably brown eyes
– Sparse moustache and goatee
– Natural teeth with no obvious fillings or crowns
– No scars or tattoos
– No obvious body piercings

So far the coroner has not stated how the victim died. They said anyone with information about the case is asked to call the Denver Office of the Medical Examiner at (303) 436-7712 or the Denver Police Department (720) 913-6776.

    A drawing or facial reconstruction would be a great tool….otherwise he’s is just one in 50 million… or this is the newest FAIL for smuggling

    1. Really dude? says:

      They can’t even determine the age to within 15 years, I doubt they have a facial reconstruction or “drawing” at this point. As for the smuggling comment, show a little respect for the dead. Sounds like they’ve been through enough without someone heaping ignorant comments on how they met their end.

    We are the next Phoenix.. wake up Colorado.
    hit and runs..,mutilation murders, Ritter and Hick`s policies are turning this once great state into the third world.

  3. Francis Hernandez says:

    That is a mystery.. Hispanic male ..no tattoos..
    Not even a “Virgen de Guadalupe”?

    Four out of five comments here are thoroughly offensive to humanity. You all have no idea what his life was like up to this point and more importantly, this was someone’s son. You don’t garner any sympathy for your politics when you use a dead young man to push your agenda. Sick.

      And how does that matter? Your ignorance and willful disregard is stunning.
