Cody, WY (AP) - Investigators have identified the decapitated body found early this year in Park County as a 30-year-old man from Mexico.

The Park County Sheriff's Office on Thursday identified the victim as Juan Antonio Guerra Torres, a native of the town of Guanajuato in central Mexico.

Duck hunters found Guerra Torres's body near Powell on Jan. 9. He had been decapitated, shot several times and was missing his left arm.

The sheriff's office says Guerra Torres had ties to Park County and that his last known address was in Clark, about 10 miles from where his body was found.

Sheriff's spokesman Lance Mathess says he can't comment on how long the man had been living in the area or whether he was employed.

The investigation by several law enforcement agencies is continuing.
