The Allegheny County Medical Examiner's Office is asking for the public's help in identifying a man whose body was found Monday night in Dravoburg.

In a statement issued Wednesday, an investigator for that office said the victim is a white male, approximately 40 to 65 years old, 5-foot-9 and weighs 145 pounds.

The medical examiner's investigator said the victim has salt and pepper-colored hair and was wearing an orange shirt with blue jeans and dark tennis shoes.

His body was found on a hillside behind Jordan Banana Co. by a construction worker involved in the county's ongoing rehabilitation of the W.D. Mansfield Memorial Bridge.

McKeesport police Capt. Tim Hanna said the worker saw what he thought was a body on the ground from the bridge above. Hanna said the worker confirmed it was a body and called police.

Authorities said the man appeared to have sustained trauma injuries consistent with a fall. Hanna said it appeared the man had been dead for several days.

A spokesperson from the medical examiner's office said a number of methods could be used to identify the man, including fingerprints, dental records, DNA information, and information from area police departments.

Allegheny County police also are investigating the incident.

The medical examiner's office is asking anyone with information about the man to call 412-350-4800.
