UPDATE: Brookhaven police think they might have ID of injured man

UPDATE:Brookhaven Police believe they have solved the mystery of the identity of a critically injured man shortly after putting out the man’s picture and description in local media.

A man believes he recognized a picture of the man he saw on Mundo Hispanico’s web page is his brother, Maj. Brandon Gurley announced Thursday.

“We just received a call from this victim’s brother,” Gurley said in an email. Detectives are following up with him now, but they are confident that this caller’s brother is our ‘John Doe.’”

ORIGINAL REPORT: Brookhaven police need help in identifying a Hispanic man who was found critically injured Saturday night.

He was found at Regency Woods Apartments on Buford Highway. He is described as about 5-feet 5-inches tall, 160 pounds, short black hair. He does not have any identifying tattoos or marks.

The man was found at the bottom of a stairwell outside the apartment buildings and transported to Grady Memorial Hospital where he remains unconscious in critical condition, said Maj. Brandon Gurley of Brookhaven Police.

Detectives have gone door-to-door speaking with residents in the apartment complex but have not found anyone who recognizes the man, Gurley said. Anyone with information on the identity of this person is asked to contact the Brookhaven Police Department at 404-637-0600.

In Fulton County, officials are still trying to identify a man whose body was found in September. The Fulton County Medical Examiner seeks help identifying the man found on September 21 in a railroad yard near 1809 Perry Boulevard in Atlanta.
