ROSEMOUNT - The man found dead in a railroad out building in late September has yet to be identified and authorities continue to seek help in identifying him.

The man was believed to be living in the shed, near the Rosemount American Legion in downtown Rosemount, and may have frequented local business, according to information this week from the Hennepin County Medical Examiner. Newspapers found in the shed suggest he was alive about October 2013.

While the man’s cause of death has not been determined, foul play is not suspected.

The Hennepin County Medical Examiner’s office says the man was white with long brown and gray hair; between 30 and 50 years old and between 5-foot-3 and 5-foot-11.

Forensic analysis indicated the man suffered a broken nose and had moderate osteoarthritis. The man was wearing a Wilson’s brand, Open Road Leather jacket, Wrangler boot cut jeans (size 42 x 30), a XXL Chaps button down shirt and dark leather belt. He had eyeglasses and a leather knife sheath with the initials DHT carved in it. He also wore a small hoop earring in his left ear.
