Police Investigate Body Found in North Reno

Posted: Updated:

Police say they're investigating a body found Wednesday morning in north Reno.

The body was found across the street from the Bonzana Casino on north Virginia Street.

Police are calling this is a suspicious death.

They received a phone call right around 8am Wednesday and found the body next to a storage facility.

"He's in an isolated dirt area. There's nobody around and he has been bleeding and has injuries that are obviously of some concern that we need to sort out. As to how he may have sustained his injuries or if he's a victim of foul play," says Reno Lt. Mohammad Rafaqat.

Police say the next step in this investigation is finding out who the man is.

After talking with people in the area, police know where the man was right up until about 9pm Tuesday.

That means there's an 11-hour gap from the time he was last seen until police found his body this morning.

"If anybody in the area saw anything, heard anything, saw a disturbance, saw anything suspicious, pick up the phone and give us a call."

If you have any information on this case, call Secret Witness at 322-4900 or text your tip to 847411. Your call will remain anonymous.
