Investigators say his name is Charles Greenberg.

PHOENIX (3TV/CBS5) -- After releasing a sketch to the public, Phoenix police have identified a man found shot to death earlier this month near South Mountain. Investigators say his name is Charles Greenberg. They didn't release any more information about him.

A cyclist discovered his body on Feb. 9, 2020 at 7:30 a.m. in the area of South Mountain Park (near Central Avenue and Dobbins Road.) Greenberg had been shot, and was pronounced dead at the scene. Police say he was the victim of a "brutal murder."

Police released some sketches Friday of his face and some of his identifying tattoos in hopes someone will recognize him and that identification came later in the day.
