Florencio Moran Camano, 39, will be buried in Mexico, officials said Saturday. He was officially identified earlier this week after investigators found his brother.

Moran remained unidentified for weeks following the Oct. 5 bloodbath because he had no identification on him when he was found sprawled out on the sidewalk on E. Broadway near Catherine St.

His attacker, identified by cops as Randy Santos, so mangled his face and head that a visual identification was difficult, said authorities.

Earlier this month, detectives finally figured out Moran’s name, and reached out to his family, who made the final identification.

Moran was sleeping on the street with two other homeless men when Santos, who was himself homeless, bludgeoned them with a metal pipe during the unprovoked early morning attack, officials said.

Also found dead at the scene were Anthony Manson, 49, and Nazario A. Vazquez Villegas, 55, cops said.

A few minutes earlier, Chuen Kwok, 83, was found beaten to death nearby, in front of a building on Bowery near Doyers St., cops said. A fifth homeless man, 49, survived the attack.

When police arrested Santos near the intersection of Mulberry and Canal streets — about a half-mile from the crime scenes — he carried a pipe covered in blood and hair, said authorities.

Their brutal slayings brought attention to the problems of homelessness and mental illness in the city.

Santos was indicted for an eerily similar attack a few days earlier, on Sept. 27, near Chelsea Piers. According to the Manhattan district attorney’s office, Santos attacked a man sleeping on a bench near the Hudson River outside the complex by hitting him on the head and trying to toss him over a railing and into the water.
