HUBBARD, Ohio (WKBN) – Hubbard Police are still working to identify the man found dead behind old railroad cars in the city Tuesday morning.

Police say an employee of one of the businesses in the area found the man on the other side of the fence behind a diner in the 800 block of N. Main Street.

Investigators say it appeared he had been there overnight. They say he had been hanging out for a few days in the area where he was found.

Employees reported seeing him around 4 p.m. the previous afternoon.

The man is described by police as having brown hair and in his 40s. He did not have any identification on him.

“He did have a Greyhound bus ticket on him where he traveled from Stockton, California to Youngstown. He left on the 24th of March,” said Det. Sgt. Michael Banic.

Anyone who may know the victim is asked to call the Hubbard Police Department.
