Solano County sheriff’s detectives hope that the tattoo of a smoking dog will be the clue that identifies a body found outside Vacaville last week.
The tough-looking dog puffing on either a cigar or a pipe was visible on the back of the homicide victim found around 3 a.m. July 9 in the 6700 block of Pleasants Valley Road. The body also had other indistinguishable tattoos.
Firefighters were initially called to the area to extinguish a storage shed fire. The body of the partially burned white or Hispanic man was found in the area, according to a sheriff’s press release.
Anyone who can identify the dead man is asked to call the investigations bureau at (707) 784-7050.
