Body found at Petaluma recycling center ID'd

Saturday, January 12, 2013

Sonoma County sheriff's detectives have identified the man whose body was discovered at a Petaluma recycling facility, but they still don't know how he died.

Luis Gomez-Diaz, 30, is originally from Mexico. However, he has lived in both Santa Rosa and Eureka.

He would sometimes stay with family members, but was a known transient.

A worker found the body at a recycling facility in Petaluma Friday afternoon.

Investigators say Gomez-Diaz did not work at Novato Disposal Services.

There are no obvious signs of trauma, but detectives are still treating the death as suspicious.
