RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Richmond Police have developed a composite sketch in an ongoing effort to identify a man found deceased last Wednesday.

Around 9:30 a.m. Nov. 23, a man was found deceased in a wooded area near the 2000 block of Mecklenburg Street in the Whitcomb neighborhood. There was no identification on his body and no signs of foul play. The composite sketch provides the best resemblance of the man.
