Delta police: Do you recognize this man?
Delta police are asking for the public’s help in identifying a man whose body was found Monday morning near the Gunnison River.
Police on Thursday released a sketch of the man, as well as photographs of multiple tattoos on his body, in the hopes that someone will recognize him.
A trucker found the body just after 7:30 a.m. near the intersection of U.S. Highway 50 and Colorado Highway 92. Authorities haven’t released the man’s cause or manner of death, but Delta Police Chief Robert Thomas said foul play isn’t suspected.
The man is described as being 35 to 45 years old, 5-foot-10, 170 to 190 pounds, with auburn-colored facial hair and short- to medium-length, semi-curly brown and gray hair. He also has a scar on his left cheek. The man has multiple tattoos, including one of praying hands in black ink on his left forearm, one of a red cross with a green four-leaf clover in the center on his left upper chest area and one of a cartoon youth holding a double-barrel shotgun with the words “LETS PLAY” above it on his upper right arm.
He was wearing an oak leaf camouflage jacket in brown tones, a gray, hooded, zip-up sweatshirt and blue denim pants.
Anyone with any information is asked to contact Delta police Detective Sgt. Brad Lamb at 970-874-7676 or the Delta County Coroner’s Office at 970-874-5918.
