Do you recognize this tattoo?


Investigators need the public's help to identify a man's body found inside a storage shed in Vacaville.

The body was partially burned in an early morning fire on July 9 at a storage shed in the 6700 block of Pleasants Valley Road, the Solano County Sheriff's Office said.

The body is that of a white or Hispanic man with several tattoos. The condition of the body made it hard for investigators to recognize several of the tattoos but one of them is of a large dog smoking either a cigar or a pipe on the man's back, the sheriff's office said. There is also some writing between the man's shoulders at the base of his neck.

Detectives have classified the man's death as a homicide.
