COLUMBUS (WCMH) — Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost and the Franklin County Coroner Dr. Anahi Ortiz are asking for help identifying a man found dead on W. Broad Street in April. 

According to a release, on April 28, 2019, a man was found dead in a parking lot of 3800 West Broad Street.  

The man is believed to be 40 to 70 years old and is 5 feet, 10 inches tall with green eyes, brown and gray hair, and a beard. He has a lion tattoo on his left arm and was wearing hospital scrub pants, socks and shoes. Foul play is not suspected.   

“This man is someone’s son, friend and neighbor and we are counting on the public to help us identify him so he can be laid to rest with the respect and honor he deserves,” Yost said. 

“Through collaboration with experts from the Ohio Attorney General’s office, the post-mortem photo has been released in an attempt to provide a name to this man,” Dr. Ortiz said. “My hope is that by releasing this photo, we can provide closure to the family and friends of this man. As coroner, I take seriously our duty to serve the community of Franklin County and speak for those who cannot.” 

post-mortem image, which is based on a photograph taken after the man’s death, was completed by a forensic artist from Attorney General Yost’s Bureau of Criminal Investigation.  

Anyone with information can call BCI’s Criminal Intelligence Unit at 740-845-2406 or the Franklin County Coroner’s Office at 614-525-5290.
