Man Found Deceased Near Alderpoint Road Still Unidentified
The deceased man discovered near the Alderpoint Road yesterday by someone walking their dogs had no identification on him, said Selena Zorrilla-Mendoza, a Community Service Officer with the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office. He had been there a relatively short time, she confirmed. The man had been dead less than 48 hours when he was found.
At this point, law enforcement and the Coroner’s Office does not know the man’s name or address.
Fingerprints have been collected but it could still be some time before the public knows the deceased man’s name.
Zorrilla-Mendoza confirmed that it could take up to 10 days for her office to have the results. If this results in someone being identified, “then we have to notify the next of kin before we will release his name,” she said.
