The body of a man found behind Kmart Tuesday was identified as 55-year-old Raymond Switzer, according to Dena Erwin, Placer County Sheriff’s spokeswoman. Switzer was listed as a transient. On Tuesday, Coroner Investigator Kevin Jackson said the man was a “well known” panhandler in the Auburn area. Initial investigation indicated that Switzer died of natural causes. An Auburn woman first found Switzer’s body at about 3 p.m. while she driving behind the Kmart located in a shopping center off Bell Road and Highway 49. The woman alerted two Kmart employees who then called 911. ~ Jenifer Gee
