A man found dead on a light rail train in St. Paul has been identified, Metro Transit police announced Monday.
The agency and the Ramsey County Medical Examiner’s Office put out a call for help on Thursday, saying they’d been working to identify him and notify his family, but had been unable to do so.
On Monday, Metro Transit police said the man has been identified as 33-year-old Shirwa M. Mohamud. Mohamud had no known address and the medical examiner’s office has now been in contact with his family, who live locally.
“Thank you to those of you who provided information and brought attention to this case,” Metro Transit police wrote on social media. A person who saw Thursday’s social media post contacted the medical examiner’s office.
Mohamud was found on a Green Line train car as it pulled into the Capitol/Rice Street Station on Saturday, Jan. 13.
His death is not being investigated as suspicious and is pending toxicology results.
