BRUNSWICK — The Maine Medical Examiner’s Office says it’s going to use DNA to try to identify the body of a man found in Brunswick near railroad tracks.

Last week, investigators appealed for the public’s help in identifying the body found on Dec. 22.

Mark Belserene from the Medical Examiner’s Office said Tuesday that someone came forward with a tip, and investigators are following up on it.

The man was believed to have been between 50 and 65 years old; he was approximately 5-foot-7 and 160 pounds with salt and pepper hair. He was wearing tan pants, a brown knit hat, black boots and two orange sweatshirts under a coat. Officials say the man had a catheter, so it’s likely he was under a doctor’s care.
