KEARNEY, Neb. (AP) - Officials are still trying to identify the remains of a man found along the Platte River earlier this month, but law enforcement authorities have theorized that he was traveling laborer or transient.

The Kearney Hub reports (https://bit.ly/28SU3CU ) that the body found June 10 was clothed a camouflage jacket and pants and hiking boots. He also had several tattoos, including a black and red scorpion on the inside of a forearm and a dark-colored shark surrounded by light blue water on another forearm.

Authorities have not ruled out foul play. An autopsy and DNA analysis were ordered.

Canoeists paddling on the Platte River discovered the body in a channel in some brush.
