Wisconsin authorities are working to identify a body that was discovered in an abandoned building last week.
According to WTMJ, the skeletal remains were found on August 10 in a building in Milwaukee that was described as a multi-use building with a church on the first floor and additional rooms upstairs. The medical examiner’s office said most of the body was mummified except for the head, feet, and one hand.
Investigators said a YouTuber searching the long-abandoned building located the body, KNOE reported.
An autopsy turned up no sign of drug use or observable signs of any injuries. Officials identified the decedent as a man based on the clothes he was wearing. WTMJ reported that he was found wearing five rings, two jackets, athletic pants, long underwear, and a red allergy bracelet which typically comes from hospitals. The man is believed to be Black.
According to the news outlet, the unidentified man has a tattoo on his left arm that reads “King” and a tattoo on his right arm that includes the letters “S-A-V-A.” The man reportedly has additional tattoos which are indiscernible.
Anyone with information regarding the man’s identity is asked to call the Milwaukee Police Department at 414-935-7360 or the Milwaukee County Medical Examiner’s Office at 414-223-1200.
