    At this point, authorities don't suspect foul play, but the victim's identity and cause of death aren't known.

    Someone posted on the updated article in the comments section that the man's name is "Criss Ottis."

    Probably just an online prankster, but maybe it's a start?

    I'm not getting any hits on that name in google. Maybe it's spelled differently?

    Published: January 29, 2009

    Chesterfield County police have identified a man whose body was found last month in a marshy area off the 12000 block of Jefferson Davis Highway as Christopher Otis, 59.

    The state medical examiner's office has not ruled on a cause of death but noted yesterday that foul play is not suspected.

    Capt. Robert Skowron said Otis was homeless and apparently living in a car that was found parked at Bermuda Self Storage in the 10500 block of Jefferson Davis Highway.
