EBR Coroner’s Office needs help identifying deceased man

The East Baton Rouge Parish Coroner’s Office and the LSU Faces Laboratory are requesting the public’s help in identifying a dead person.

Authorities found the body in a building on the 1500 block of 79th avenue in Baton Rouge on January 19, 2021.

The leads to identify the body were ruled out so the LSU Faces Lab created a digital image of what the person might have looked like.

Officials say the image is not an exact photographic likeness. The public should consider whether the person looks familiar based on the shape of the face or the position of the facial features.

Officials say the person is believed to be a black man in his 30s or 40s. He was wearing a Southern Jaguars t-shirt underneath a plaid long-sleeved shirt and a gray hoodie with dark-colored pants. He wore a small metal hoop earring in his left ear and a blue rubber wristband with no words, a yellow rubber wristband with the words “dream big I am a leader,” and a black watch on his right wrist. A black baseball cap with a red “Camp Ozark” patch was found nearby.

Anyone who believes they know who the person might be should call the East Baton Rouge Parish Coroner’s Office at 225-389-3047, and use the reference “John Doe 1/19/2021.”
