Public’s help needed to identify man found in Fargo pond

Fargo, North Dakota – The Fargo Police Department is currently seeking the public’s assistance in the identification of a man discovered in a retention pond on Monday.

Captain Bill Ahlfeldt has provided a description of the man, stating that he was of African descent, approximately six feet in height, weighing around 230 pounds, and estimated to be between 30 to 40 years of age.

Captain Ahlfeldt has stated, “If anybody knows of an individual matching that description who might be missing that hasn’t been reported, we’d love to hear from those people to get a report of who this person might be.” He added, “Autopsies have been completed and we’re taking every step that we can to identify who this individual is. That will take some time. We’d love to speed this investigation up and hopefully bring some closure to a family that might be missing someone.”

While the cause of death does not seem suspicious at this point, Captain Ahlfeldt stated that the duration for which the man’s body had been in the pond remains unknown, although it appears to have been more than a day.

The man was located in the vicinity of the 100 block of 36th Street S, an area located south of Main Avenue and east of I-29.
