Authorities say they have been unable to identify the body of a man found last week in an abandoned mobile home on the city's outskirts.

Police said the body was that of a black man between the ages of 30 and 40, about 6'4" tall and weighing close to 300 pounds.

Detectives said they are treating his death as an intentional killing.

Lieutenant John Griffith said the man was shot multiple times.
