Denver Police are asking the public to help identify the burned remains found on the side of the road in the Montbello neighborhood early Sunday morning.
Earlier, police said they aren’t looking for suspects.
The body was found at around 5:30 a.m. at East Andrews Drive and Elgin Place. The person is being described by DPD as a black man. Additional details about the person’s identity and age were not released.
Frank Edmonds, who lives nearby, saw the body.
“Burnt,” Edmonds said. “It was pretty gnarly. It was bad.”
Denver Police say they’re still in the beginning stages of the investigation. They’re awaiting the results of an autopsy.
Anyone with information about the victim’s identity is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 720-913-STOP. You can remain anonymous, and could be eligible for a $2,000 reward.
