Officers try to identify man found naked with gunshot wound, bite marks

COLLEGE PARK, Ga. — Police need your help identifying a man found dead by a worker at a construction site.

Investigators released a sketch of the man and are hoping someone will recognize him.

Officers told Channel 2′s Tyisha Fernandes they found the dumped body in an industrial area of College Park.

Investigators believe someone killed the man, shot him in the head and left him at the site on Naturally Fresh Boulevard.

He had a gunshot wound, bite marks on his body and bruised knuckles, which leads investigators to believe he fought his attacker.

Fernandes spoke with some of the construction workers at the site who saw police collecting evidence early last Friday morning.

“Looks very young. I really pray if anyone knows what happened, they would come forward,” one of the workers said, asking not to be identified. “It’s crazy and they had to dump him because we left out of here at 7 that night and all this was empty at that time, so it had to happen after 7 p.m.”


Police aren’t sure when the victim was killed, but they said he had no identification because he didn’t have any clothes on when construction workers found him.

“It’s very dark area out here. No lights, no cameras, so it’s real sad. Very sad,” the construction worker said. “I just can’t imagine as a parent anything like that. Someone being dumped and discarded like trash on the side of the street. Just sad.”

If you think you recognize the victim, police ask that you call Crime Stoppers at 404-577-8477. You can remain anonymous and get a reward for information that leads to an arrest.
