Authorities still trying to ID man who died after being found by train tracks in Casa Grande


FLORENCE, Arizona — Authorities are still trying to identify a man who died after being found by train tracks in Casa Grande.

The Maricopa County Medical Examiner's Office and Pinal County Sheriff's Office say the unidentified man is believed to have been an unauthorized passenger who fell or was otherwise attempting to jump off of a train.

Employees from Union Pacific Railroad reported finding him lying on the ground beside their train tracks near Jimmie Kerr Boulevard and Casa Verde Lane on Feb. 16.

He was transported to a Phoenix hospital where he died five days later.

Authorities believe the man may have boarded or attempted to board the train while in the Tucson/Marana or Picacho areas.
