The El Paso Police Department’s Crimes Against Persons unit released the identity of a male located and recovered from a Lower valley canal earlier in the week.
Saul Hernandez, 41, was found Aug. 6 off the 100 block of Pendale.
The preliminary investigation revealed that Hernandez was seen floating in the canal by a passerby who called police. Investigators said it appeared Hernandez had physical injuries, which appear to be suspicious.
A cause of death has not been released.
Anyone with information about this case is asked to call the El Paso Police Department at 915.832.4400 or to remain anonymous call Crime Stoppers of El Paso at 915.566.TIPS (8477).
