Tips may also be sent with TipSoft or by texting the word CEDAR plus the information to CRIMES (274637). Message and data rates may apply. Text STOP to opt out at any time. Text HELP for more information. Tips can also be left at WWW.CVCRIMESTOP.COM

Authorities said Washburn, who didn’t have a vehicle and walked with the assistance of a walker, was last seen leaving the Jet Lounge around 9 p.m. on May 26. At about 12:30 a.m. the following morning, a passerby found him unconscious near the former Longfellow Elementary School on Edwards Street.

Washburn never regained consciousness died June 4 at University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics.
