Coroner: Human remains went undiscovered for 3-10 years

YORK, Pa. (WHTM) -

Preliminary forensic tests show that human remains found last week in York County could have been there for a decade.

West Manchester Township police are calling the death suspicious.

They say that the bones most likely belonged to a man between the ages of 30 and 60, and he stood between 5'5" and 6' tall.

The remains were discovered by tree trimmers in a private wooded area at the intersection of Loucks and Haviland Road.

Coroner Barry Bloss hopes that someone will come forward with information that will help put this case and these bones to rest.

"You always put all the effort you can into everything you have because someone lost a loved one. Under what circumstances, we don't know," Bloss said.

He adds that the only defining characteristic to the skeleton is that the man was wearing some kind of dental appliance, possibly a partial denture.

Anyone with any information should contact West Manchester Township Police.
