Update: Help Sought in Identifying Male Found Deceased at 5200 Carrolton

October 21, 2015 - Houston police are asking for the public's help in identifying a male found deceased at 5200 Carrolton about 9:35 a.m. on September 19.

Preliminary autopsy results indicate no foul play is suspected in the male's death.  The Harris County Institute of Forensic Sciences has been unable to verify the male's identity.

HPD Homicide Division Sergeant R. Olive and Officer S. Sylvester reported:

The manager of a construction project in the area observed the victim's body in Brays Bayou at the above address.  Members of the HPD Dive Team recovered the male's body.  The male is believed to be white and has dark brown or black hair.  He was wearing a black short sleeve, polo style shirt with a beige colored Asian character stamp print.  The male was wearing blue jeans rolled up above each knee, with black socks and black low-top Nike tennis shoes.

Investigators hope someone in the public can help them identify the male due to his distinctive tattoos.  One spelled out HAN:LY.  A second, on the male's shoulder and arm, appears to be a traditional demon or devil dagger skull.  The third tattoo, on the shoulder, is a traditional single rose.  

Anyone with information on the identity of the male is urged to contact the HPD Homicide Division at 713-308-3600.
