The body appears to be that of a white man between the ages of 35 and 50, authorities said. He was wearing blue jeans, a canvas belt and a pair of black Nike tennis shoes. The man has a distinctive tattoo on his right shoulder. The tattoo shows the head of a Doberman Pinscher, the word “capone” and the numbers "2-14-92."
The sheriff's office is treating the case as a homicide. The body was sent to the State Medical Examiner's office in Richmond for an autopsy.
Anyone with information about the man's identity is asked to call the Mecklenburg County Sheriff’s Office at 888-624-2207 or 434-738-6171 or Mecklenburg County Crime Solvers at 877-676-8477.
