State Police are asking for the public’s help in identifying the deceased man whose remains washed up on Revere Beach last week.

The condition of the remains has made it difficult for police to release much information, according to a State Police release. However, the male is believed to have been between 20-40, and most likely on the younger end of this range.

The man had a key to a Kryptonite bicycle lock in his jeans. His jeans were American Eagle brand, with a 30-inch waist, and he was wearing a braided leather belt (pictured above).

The man also had on boxer shorts with an image resembling a Volkswagen Bug with a surfboard on its roof (pictured above).

A passerby spotted the man’s remains in shallow water along the beach’s shoreline at about 11:30 a.m. Wednesday, April 30, and contacted State Police.

The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner has not determined the cause or manner of his death, according to the State Police release.

“Somewhere, there may be a mother, father, son or daughter suffering the worst kind of uncertainty,” Suffolk County District Attorney Daniel Conley said in a statement. “If we can identify this man, we can at least put an end to that waiting and worrying and allow them some closure. Even if members of the public don’t have specific information, they can share these details online and, perhaps, help us reach the loved ones who need to know.”

Anyone with specific information may call the Suffolk County State Police Detective Unit at 617-727-8817. Others without information but who wish to help are asked share the following link: http://wp.me/pKHdm-1Vk.
