The FBI and Navajo Nation Division of Public Safety are asking for the public's help after the body of a Native American man was found in an arroyo in Shiprock, New Mexico.

He possibly was last seen alive on or about April 15, 2018.

An autopsy determined Whitehorse died from blunt force trauma to his head.

Authorities want to talk to anybody who might have information about the events leading up to Whitehorse's death.
