Description Released On Body Found Near Montrose Landfill

Authorities have released a description of the badly burned body that was found near the Montrose County landfill last week.

The Montrose County Coroner, Mark Young, who performed the autopsy on Friday says the man is Caucasian, five foot eight, with a full beard, and is missing a right front tooth.

Law enforcement agencies have filed a missing person's report, but haven't received any calls. Identification is proving to be difficult because authorities have nothing to compare the man's DNA to.

Young says they hope to release a composite sketch of the man by tomorrow to media and law enforcement agencies. The man's death is being called a brutal homicide.
