The Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office is asking for the public’s help on a cold case they are working on.
On Tuesday, August 30, 2011, the body of a white male subject was located on Forest Road 618H in the Beaver Creek area off I-17 and Hwy 179. The death was ruled as natural due to heart complications. The victim is described as 6 feet tall, 252 lbs., bald with brown facial hair in the form of a goatee and a 9-inch scar on his left abdomen. He had no wallet or identification on his person. Several types of medications were found near the decedent. His clothing included a blue tie dye shirt, an extra shirt with a logo, a black and red backpack, and a hat.
Based on a business card for a cab company found in the victim’s possession, he was last known to be picked up at the Flagstaff Amtrak Station on Saturday, August 27th, 2011, at approximately 1230 PM. The victim was driven to the Beaver Creek area by the cab company. He then provided statements to the cab driver that belied the fact that he was familiar with the Flagstaff and Verde Valley areas.
