MOSES LAKE -- Grant County sheriff's officials are hoping the public can help them identify skeletal remains found last month near the O'Sullivan Dam in southeast Grant County.
The remains belong to a man, believed to be white or Hispanic and about 35 years old, said Detective Kim Cook.
The skeletal remains were found Nov. 23, but investigators believe the body had been outside for about a year. The unknown man had been shot, but circumstances about the injury are unknown.
Investigators sent the remains to the King County Medical Examiner's Office in Seattle and officials there provided descriptive information about the victim. Forensic artist Natalie Murry also made a drawing of what the man may have looked liked.
Cook also noted that the victim's teeth were in poor condition and had silver-colored caps on his two front teeth.
The victim was wearing Phat Farm long-sleeve and short-sleeve T-shirts, size 28 Route 66 dark denim jeans, an insulated tan and orange vest, size 8.5 black shoes with Velcro closures and a black stocking cap.
Anyone who thinks they know who the man is can call Detective Cook at 509-754-2011, ext. 471 or email email@example.com.
