PEACHTREE CORNERS -- In a further attempt at identification, police have released more details about tattoos on the body of a dead man found Monday in Peachtree Corners.
Gwinnett County police investigators have not yet identified the body discovered early Monday behind an office building on Technology Parkway. The male victim -- described as between 5-foot-10 and 6-foot-2 and approximately 200 pounds -- had several head injuries "from an unknown origin," officials said.
Police spokesman Cpl. Jake Smith said Wednesday that an autopsy was "inconclusive regarding the cause of death." Officials do believe that the death is suspicious.
"Samples have been sent in for a toxicology test," Smith said. "Those results will not be available for several weeks."
On Wednesday, police also released specifics about a pair of tattoos found on the body. One is a tribal tattoo on the upper arm.
The second features a cartoon depiction of Mickey Mouse with outspread arms. Its specific location was not released, but officials previously said the tattoo was in "a unique location."
Anyone with information on the deceased is asked to call detectives at 770-513-5300.
