The Santa Clara County Medical-Examiner Coroner’s Office has put the word out that it’s looking to the public for help in identifying an unidentified man found in Milpitas.

Above we have included a sketch of the individual, drawn by a Forensic Artist.

This case goes back to last autumn: On 9/29/18, on a pathway along Piedmont Road’s 1200 block, the man was found on the ground and unresponsive. He had been a familiar face in the area, among Milpitas’ homeless population. The Coroner’s office does not suspect foul play, and has deemed the man’s death to be a natural one.

His hair was straight, gray, and of medium length, with a matching mustache and beard. His eyes were hazel or light brown. He stood 71 inches and weighed 115 pounds. He appeared to be between 55 and 70 years of age, and of Hispanic or Middle Eastern origin.

If you have any info on who he was, the Investigations Office at the Coroner’s Office will want to know: 408-793-1900 Ex. 3.
