On April 3, 2004, an anonymous caller from a payphone in central Tucson, Arizona reported a dead body in a dumpster at 1935 East Missouri Street on the south side of town.
When police responded to the area, they found the body of an adult Hispanic man, between 35-45 years old and approximately 5’4” tall and 115 pounds. He had a black mustache, medium length black hair and brown eyes. Investigators determined the man had died within a few days of being found.
Additional distinctive features included a removable denture and an amateur looking tattoo on his left forearm that authorities speculate depicted an assault rifle with shoulder strap. He wore “Bosse” jeans, size 30, with two pairs of socks, one off-white pair and one black pair. The man was found wearing only one shoe on his right foot, a black “HGH” brand sneaker.
