Anchorage police ID remains found washed up on mudflats

Anchorage police have released the identity of the man whose body was found in the mudflats near Kincaid Park.

Police in a Tuesday release identified the remains as 32-year-old Joseph Daniel Belmont of Anchorage.

He had been reported missing by family members on April 13. The cause of death hasn’t been determined pending both a full autopsy and toxicology reports, which would take up to two months to complete.
