Butte-Silver Bow County Coroner Lee Lebreche says 53-year-old James Henry Frison was the transient man found dead last week behind a Little Caesars in Butte.
Lebreche says the man was from Eureka, California, and had been in Butte for a few days.
A cause of death is still unknown at this time.
The coroner says it might be three to four weeks before autopsy results come back.
Lebreche is also asking the public to help locate information about the man's family, they have not been notified.
Anyone with information should call the coroner's office at 490-8023.
