Grant Co. authorities seek help identifying dead man

Grant County mystery man

Do you recognize this man?

Forensic artist Natalie Murray drew this sketch of a man whose skeletal remains were found by hunters Nov. 23 near O’Sullivan Dam in southeast Grant County (south of Moses Lake). Based on a forensic examination, the man is believed to be a white or Hispanic, about around 35 years old and between 5-feet-1 and 6-feet-1.

He had a single gunshot wound. Investigators believe his body had been outside for perhaps a year. His teeth were in poor condition, and silver-colored dental caps were affixed to his two front teeth. One of those teeth was broken beneath the cap.

The man was wearing multiple layered clothing when he was found, including a Phat Farm-brand long-sleeve T-shirt, Phat Farm short-sleeve T-shirt, Route 66-brand dark denim pants, a tan and orange insulated vest and black stocking cap.

Anyone with information about the man should call Detective Kim Cook with the Grant County Sheriff’s Office at 509-754-2011, ext. 471, or send information to crimetips@co.grant.wa.us. Tipsters can remain anonymous.
