Coroner still trying to identify man 7 years after his death

Man died at Miravilla Care Center in Beaumont

BEAUMONT, Calif. - The Riverside County Coroner's Bureau is looking for some help from the public to identify a man who died in a nursing home seven years ago. He was initially dropped off in an unresponsive state at Martin Luther King Hospital in Los Angeles County in 2006 by an unknown man. 

As strange as it may seem that this man still hasn't been identified after all these years, KESQ and CBS Local 2 learned there are dozens of people who haven't been identified in Riverside County, reaching all the way back to the 1960s. 

The man was then transferred to a nursing home called Huntington Healthcare Center in Los Angeles, and in October 2006 he was transferred to Miravilla Care Center in Beaumont. Authorities said the man died four years later in 2010. 

Leading up to the man's death he never regained consciousness and authorities were never able to identify him, according to the sheriff's department. 

Authorities said the man appears to be Hispanic with black hair and brown eyes and he was believed to be in his late 30's, 5'4" and weighed 141 pounds. All efforts to identify the man have been unsuccessful through the years. 

The sheriff's department released a composite sketch to KESQ News Channel 3 and CBS Local 2 to reach out to the community in hopes of someone being able to identify the man. If you have information regarding the man's identity, please contact the Riverside County Sheriff Coroner's Bureau at 951-443-2300 or 760- 863-8311.
