A tattoo is all investigators have to identify a man found shot to death in Grant County last week, and they’re asking for the public’s help identifying it

A citizen spotted the body Jan. 19 face down in the dirt off a gravel farm road about 8 miles southeast of Mattawa, a tiny town in the southern part of the county, according to the Grant County Sheriff’s Office.

The victim is an Hispanic man, 5 foot 3, 152 pounds with brown eyes and black hair about a half inch long, the sheriff’s office said. He had wounds to his head, face and body from a sharp object, the sheriff’s office said.

He has a sparse mustache and appears to be in his late 30s to early 40s. Along with the tattoo of two woven chains with a decorative cross on his right bicep, the victim has a mole on the right front of his neck, according to the sheriff’s office.
