The Anaheim Police Department is reaching out to the public for help in identifying a body found shortly after midnight Saturday on the 57 freeway between Orangewood and Katella avenues.

Cops also want to know if the person jumped or was pushed out of a vehicle.

Calls rolled into the Anaheim agency as well as the California Highway Patrol about a dead body on the northbound Orange Freeway, according to Anaheim Police Sgt. Bob Dunn, the department spokesman.

Officers arrived to find the body near the Katella off-ramp from the northbound 57.

Homicide detectives are now investigating what's been deemed a suspicious death. Anyone with information that can help them is asked to contact Orange County Crimestoppers at 855.TIP.OCCS, occrimestoppers.org or text OCCS+your tip to 274637.

I think we would have a better chance of identifying a car wash token dropped off the Newport beach pier at the ocean floor than identifying this "body," with zero description from the author of this story.  Matt Coker, do you know how to ask questions for a substantive article? 

I really dont feel like the police are really "reaching out" to us, when they dont give any information whatsoever, there are over 7+ million people in the metropolitan area, we need a bit more info like height, weight, gender, appearance, to be able to help them further.

well, if the person jumped out of their car then there would be a empty car. If they jumped with someone in the car there would be a witness. If they were pushed out I am sure the person or persons doing the pushing would not stick around SO no car. Perhaps I am missing something here do to the lack of info.

When the police reach out to the public to identify an unknown person, it usually involves either a picture or a sketch of some sort along with a description of tattoos/piercings, their height, and what they were last wearing. These Anaheim cops really need to get their act together, should I just walk a few blocks to the police station and tell them how to do their job ?

The article doesn't even say if it was male or female either.
