Investigators are hoping that the tattoos on a man will help them identify his body after it was found in a garbage bag in a ditch in Gratiot County.

Two men were hunting over the weekend along Warner Road near Olive Road in Seville Township when they came across a garbage bag. They opened the bag and inside, a man's dead body. I don't even know how I would handle a situation like that, it would be freaky as hell especially with it being so close to home which it was in thier case.

According to WNEM, the man's believed to be in his 60s or 70s with an eagle tattoo on his right shoulder and on his left shoulder he had a tattoo of a skull wearing a cowboy hat and a handkerchief. The skull is bordered by the written states of Texas, Florida, and Michigan. He was about 5'9" and 185 pounds with medium length brown/gray hair. He also had the middle and ring fingers on his left hand taped together. Below are the tattoos investigators are hoping will be the clues needed to identify the man.
