UPDATE: Body found in Loma canal identified

Janitzio De Filipe Diaz-Panigua
Mesa County Sheriff’s Office |

On Thursday, May 21, the primary investigator working to identify the man in the photo believes he found the man’s family. And, has been able to obtain a name and date of birth for the man. That information has been provided to the Mesa County Coroner who will work to make positive identification and official notification to the man’s next of kin.

A poster asking the public for help in identifying his was circulated on social media, and eventually reached people in and outside of the Country, who recognized him. Without the proactive responses from our social media followers, the appropriate closer to this case would not have happened so quickly.
