Public Help Sought in ID'ing Human Remains

By The Associated Press

EFFINGHAM, Ill. (AP) - Illinois State Police are still trying to identify the remains of a man found in southeastern Illinois, and authorities hope an FBI approximation of what the man's face looked like will help generate some leads.  

Investigators believe the remains discovered by a pedestrian in March 2012 near Newton in Jasper County were those of a white, Asian, American Indian or Hispanic man about 35 to 50 years old. Authorities believe he was 5-foot-3 to 5-foot-8.  

State police have released pictures of what the FBI approximates he may have looked like.  Investigators ask that anyone with information about the man call state police Sgt. Albert Gallatin in Effingham at 217-342-2292.
