Indiana State Police are seeking the public’s help in identifying a man found dead on Tuesday in Ripley County.

Shortly after 10 a.m. on Tuesday, April 27, troopers from the Indiana State Police-Versailles Post responded to a rural area west of Osgood, Indiana, after a man was found dead. At this point, the man has not been identified and the cause of death is not currently known.

The man appeared to be a white male in his 30s or early 40s, approximately 5 feet, 7 inches tall, 160 pounds, with brown hair, brown eyes and a beard. He had distinctive tattoos on his upper right arm so ISP has released a photo to assist in identification.

An autopsy was to be conducted Wednesday to determine a cause of death and to obtain more information to assist in identifying the man.

Anyone who believes they may know the identity of the man is asked to call Detective Tracy Rohlfing at the Indiana State Police-Versailles Post at 812-689-5000.
