Sheriff's investigators planned to release a forensic sketch Wednesday of a man whose remains were found last summer behind a boarded-up Wal-Mart in Lancaster, authorities said.

The intact skeleton was found July 5 in the bushes by the loading dock at the closed store on North Valley Central Way, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department.

In the months since, investigators have been trying to identify the man. Officials plan to release the sketch in the hopes it will help lead to his identity.
