Investigators in Washington state are asking for help identifying the body of a man they think may be from Oklahoma.
The body was found March 6, 1998, in Tumwater, Wash., Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation officials said Friday. Washington state medical examiners determined the man died of blunt force trauma. The man had told several people he had ties to Oklahoma, OSBI officials said.
He is described as white, in his late teens or early 20s, between 5 feet 8 inches and 5 feet 10 inches tall, weighing about 165 pounds.
He had short, light brown or red hair. He was found wearing two dark blue sweatshirts over a white Sherwin Williams T-shirt, white Dickies painter-style pants and new camel-colored work boots.
Anyone with information about the man should contact detective Ron Knapp of the Thurston County, Wash., sheriff’s office at (360) 786-5278, or the OSBI hotline at (800) 522-8017.
