Details emerge on human bones found in W. Pa. park

PITTSBURGH (AP) — The Allegheny County Medical Examiner’s Office says that bones found in a Pittsburgh park are from a man who appears to have died about two years ago.

Medical Examiner Karl Williams says in a statement Wednesday that there was no obvious evidence of trauma on the essentially complete skeleton, which was in a make-shift shelter.

Authorities believe the man was about 60 years of age when he died and about five-and-a-half feet tall. Remains of shorts with Carnegie Mellon lettering and a blue Tar Heels t-shirt were also found, and anyone with information about the case is urged to call the medical examiner.

The remains were found Sunday in a wooded area of Frank Curto Park, which is located about a mile from downtown.
