SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - Santa Fe County authorities are trying to identify a man whose nude dead body was found in the Santa Fe River’s bed.

Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Deborah Martinez says a passer-by discovered the body Tuesday morning near State Route 599 and the El Camino Real Park trailhead..

Cause of death isn’t immediately known but Martinez says it had numerous bruises, possibly as a result of rocks and debris during flows from overnight storm runoff.

Martinez says investigators haven’t found the man’s clothes or ID and that they have no reports of a missing person matching his description.

The man is described as being in his 40s or 50s, 5-foot-8 or 5-foot-9 and weighing about 175 pounds. He had black hair and mustache.
