Oklahoma City Police are hoping a composite rendering will help them identify a homicide victim found last year.

On November 28, 2012, a tree trimmer spotted the man's body in a ditch along E. Wilshire between Air Depot and Midwest Boulevard. In the following year, police have been unable to identify him. They've created a rendering, hoping someone will call and give investigators a name.

Police have not said how the victim died.

The victim was possibly a Hispanic male with a thin to medium build; 5 feet 5 inches to 5 feet 7 inches tall and 40 to 60 years old. He had a tattoo of "W-Oz."

The man may also have worked as a painter or manual laborer, because paint was found on his fingers and shoes.

Anyone with information about the victim's identity should call the Homicide Tip Line at (405) 297-1200.
