Collin County authorities are asking for help to identify a body found in Big Lake Park in Plano earlier this year.

Police discovered the remains in a creek after receiving a call to investigate a campsite on March 4.

The 5'-8' tall man has blue eyes and short, brown curly hair with some gray coloring. He is believed to be between 35 and 50 years old and weighs approximately 195 pounds. His upper teeth are decayed and partially missing, but his lower teeth are complete.

He was found wearing a long-sleeved, red, white and blue plaid flannel shirt, long black pants with a black belt and gray-and-white socks. A pair of brown, laceless boots with white soles was found near his body. The man was also wearing a turquoise-colored Swatch brand wristwatch.

Collin County spokesman Tim Wyatt said the cause of death was hypertensive and arteriosclerotic cardiovascular disease high blood pressure and heart disease in combination with probable hypothermia and Diphenhydramine toxicity. Diphenhyrdramine is more commonly known as Benadryl.

The manner of death remains undetermined, Wyatt said, but foul play is not suspected and the investigation is ongoing.

If you have any information that could help identify this man, contact the Collin County Medical Examiner's Office at 972-424-1460, extension 3775 or 972-548-3775.
