Authorities say they've been unable to identify a man whose body washed up on Revere Beach last week and are seeking the public's help.

The man's body was in very bad shape, the Suffolk County District Attorney's office reports, adding that forensic anthropologists consulted by State Police believe he was between 20 and 40 - and likely closer to 20 than 40. The DA's office adds:

Recovered from the man’s jeans was the key to a Kryptonite bicycle lock. The key was not registered. The jeans themselves were American Eagle brand blue jeans with a 30” waist, suggesting a slim build, cinched with a black, braided leather belt.

He was also wearing boxer shorts bearing an image resembling a Volkswagen Bug with a surfboard on its rooftop.

Anybody with information can contact State Police detectives at 617-727-8817.
