WHITE SWAN, Wash. - Investigators have identified a man they say was found dumped in the Medicine Valley area of White Swan last year.

Yakima County Coroner Jack Hawkins said Neil Richard Cloud was 20 years old when his body was discovered at Towtnuk Road on September 18 of 2017.

Hawkins said the body had been there for several months at the time of discovery and was in very advanced stages of decomposing. He said investigators were unable to identify Cloud at the time he was found.

FBI investigators were able to identify Cloud through their identification process.

An autopsy found Cloud had been stabbed and bled to death, according to the coroner's office.
