Human remains found — This is how cops think the person looked
PERTH AMBOY — Just over seven months after human remains were found in Perth Amboy, New Jersey State Police said they have a better idea of what the person looked like before death.
Police said an image basked on the remains, which were found on Aug. 12 of last year, was constructed by the New Jersey State Police Forensic Photography and Composite Artist Unit as well as State Police forensic anthropologist Donna Fontana.
According to Middlesex County Prosecutor Andrew C. Carey, the remains were found in a wooded area near the intersection of Herbert Street and Riverview Drive. Carey said a forensic examination showed the man was between the ages of 25 and 35 and was likely between 5 feet, 2 inches and 5 feet, 5 inches.
Carey didn't say how long authorities believe the man was dead, or whether they have an idea how he died.
Authorities are asking anyone with information to contact the New Jersey State Police Missing Persons Unit at 609-882-2000 ext. 2554. Information can also be emailed to LPP5978@gw.njsp.org, or called into the Middlesex County Prosecutor's Office Major Crimes Unit at 732-745-3300.
