The Orange County Sheriff's Department on Thursday released this photo from a pair of men's jeans.
No, our fearless deputies have not gone all America's Top Model on us.
Lei jeans and black Vans sneakers (size 9) were on the body of a male found in the water channel near Magnolia Street and Orangewood Avenue in Garden Grove on Monday. The sheriff's Coroner Division and the Garden Grove Police Department are trying to figure out who he is.
They hope the clothing will jog someone's memory. The fellow stood 5-foot-4, and the Lei jeans he wore had a patterned pocket. Investigators believe he had been dead for some time.
Other than that, there is limited information about him and no facial photo or sketch is available, according to sheriff's spokesman Lt. Jeff Hallock.
Anyone with information regarding the identity of the male is asked to call Garden Grove Police Detective Maciel at 714.741.5824 or the Coroner Division at 714.647.4134 (Coroner Case No. 14-04689-BB).
