The NYPD has released images of tattoos on a body that was discovered last week in hopes that someone will be able to help identify the person.

On March 13th, around 11:15 a.m., police officers responded to a 911 call about a body floating in the water near 58th Street and Brooklyn Army Terminal around. After the Harbor Unit recovered the body, EMS determined the man was deceased.

The body was decomposed, according to police, and the NYC Medical Examiner's Office is working to determine the cause of death. In the meantime, photographs of the man's tattoos and some of his articles of clothing were released in an effort to identify him.

The man was described as being a black male, about 320 pounds, and around 30-40 years old. He was wearing a red Casio G-Shock watch and yellow and black Nike sneakers. His tattoos include a money bag on the left forearm, and boxing gloves and a "cheat to win" tattoo on his left arm.


Anyone with information in regard to the identity of this male is asked to call the NYPD's Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).
