On 07/25/2023, at 8:54 P.M., Mendocino County Sheriff’s Office (MCSO) Deputies and the California Highway Patrol (CHP) were dispatched to the area of North State Street at the North Highway 101 on-ramp in Ukiah, CA for a Coroner’s Investigation.

An unidentified adult male subject (Decedent) was located in a field, approximately one hundred (100) yards east of the North State Street on-ramp to North Highway 101. The decedent’s body was decomposing and the decedent was pronounced deceased at 9:10 P.M. MCSO Deputies continued their investigation and it was determined the decedent was living a transient-type lifestyle based on items found in the area of the decedent.

Due to the decomposition of the decedent’s body, MCSO Deputies could not positively identify the decedent and the investigation is on-going to determine the decedent’s cause of death, identity, and notification to the decedent’s Next-of-Kin.

This case is still under investigation by the MCSO and further information will be released as it becomes available.

    I’m so sorry Sir that you died alone in a field. I pray that there were Holy Angel’s there to collect your soul.

    Condolences to the family and friends.
