FRESNO, Calif. — Officials are trying to find the relatives of a man who recently passed away at a Fresno hospital

The Fresno County Sheriff-Coroner's Office released an image of 67-year-old Pedro Villalta Lopez. However, few details are actually known about him. Officials have only said that he previously lived in Stockton, Calexico and Mexico.
