The sheriff’s office released a rendering of a tattoo on the man’s back in an attempt to identify him. The rendering showed an eagle, an angel and music notes flowing out of a book.
Within 10 hours of publishing the rendering, the sheriff’s office said the man was identified.
“We are grateful to be able to provide closure to the family & we offer our condolences for their loss,” the sheriff’s office tweeted.
