LAS CRUCES (KRQE) – It appears a partially burned body found last month on the NMSU campus is that of a homeless man.
OMI has tentatively identified him as 55-year-old Richard Livasy.
His body was found Jan. 27 burning in a drainage culvert underneath I-25 on the edge of campus.
Investigators are still trying to determine a cause of death.
Police say Livasy was originally from Michigan but has been in the Las Cruces area since the 1990s.
