NILES, Ohio (WKBN) — The Trumbull County Coroner’s Office confirmed the body found in Mosquito Creek Sunday afternoon is an unidentified male.
The pathologist identified the body as a male and stated while the race cannot conclusively be determined, he could have been Caucasian or bi-racial. They estimate his age as upper teens or 20s.
Police provided a rendering of a tattoo that was partially intact on the male’s upper right arm that could help identify him, pictured below.
The doctor also reported the presence of a metallic implant in the male’s right hand, apparently from some surgery undergone by the subject during his life.
The coroner’s office states there are no leads on the male’s identity at this time.
The body was found in the area where Mosquito Creek intersects with the Mahoning River. Det. Capt. John Marshall said the body was badly decomposed.
