The FBI and Navajo Nation Division of Public Safety are asking for the public’s help identifying a man whose body was found under a bridge in Mentmore, New Mexico.

The man is described as a Native American male in his mid-40s, approximately 5'10” to 6'1” tall, weighing 240 pounds, with a scar on his left cheek and another on his left arm from his elbow to his wrist.

He had neck-length black hair, a moustache, and whispy hair on his chin. He had a small circular tattoo on his abdomen.
