PITTSBURGH (AP) — The Allegheny County Medical Examiner’s Office said that bones found in a Pittsburgh park are from a man who appears to have died about two years ago. Medical Examiner Karl Williams said in a statement Wednesday that there was no obvious evidence of trauma on the essentially complete skeleton, which was in a makeshift shelter.

Authorities believe the man was about 60 years of age when he died and about 5ᄑ feet tall.

Remains of shorts with Carnegie Mellon lettering and a blue North Carolina 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.
