The Spokane County Medical Examiner’s Office is asking for the public’s help in identifying a body found late last week in the Spokane River.

The man was found across from Peaceful Valley on Saturday near 2209 W. Falls Ave.

The man was bald, 147 pounds and had a gray mustache and beard and a tattoo on his left shoulder that appears to say “Judy,” according to a medical examiner’s news release.

He was wearing an extra large yellow polo shirt and a T-shirt with a black logo that of a shaving brush and shaving cream mug that said “NEXT PLEASE.” He also was wearing size 36 X 34 Wrangler blue jeans, and an orange cloth belt. Under the jeans he was wearing blue swimming trunks or sports shorts. He had size-10, black, hiking-style shoes with silver and gray trim and wore a black knee brace on his right leg.

Anyone with information on the man’s identity is asked to call the Medical Examiner’s Office at (509) 477-2296.
