Harrison County Coroner Gary Hargrove said fingerprints have led to the identity of a man whose body was found Sunday afternoon in a metal shed off Lemoyne Boulevard.

The man’s identity is not being released because authorities are trying to find next of kin to notify them of his death. Hargrove said the man was homeless. He was identified through fingerprints because he had a record with law enforcement.

A D’Iberville man on a bike ride with his son discovered the body after noticing a strong odor. The metal shed is behind a vacant house just west of the Dollar General store.
