Police release the name of the 22-year-old found dead in Minot.

Police say it was the body of 22-year-old Cristian Fuentes formerly from Texas found on a construction site this morning.

With these new developments police also revealed he was a student at Minot State University.

Police are investigating the circumstances surrounding a dead body found in the work zone of the Broadway Bridge project this morning.
A call first came in about 7:30 reporting a man injured near one of the cranes at the work site.
When police arrived, it was determined the man was dead, although Community Ambulance crews did transport the person to Trinity Hospital where the death was confirmed.
