A Washoe County cold case has been solved, with the Washoe County Regional Medical Examiner’s Office and Federal Bureau of Investigation’s recent collaboration with the NamUs system positively identifying a man who died in 2008.

The man has been identified by fingerprint comparison as Terry Frankson, who was 56 years old at the time of his death. His family has been notified and claimed his remains.

Frankson’s body was found along the banks of the Truckee River just east of Sparks in January 2008. An autopsy was performed on Frankson at the time, and it was determined his cause of death was drowning, but his identity was not determined.
