  • Case History

    The skeletal remains of the victim were discovered off Lower Bayside Drive on a wooded hillside going down to the beach. Local residents were helping to clear a parcel of land along Sandy Hook Bay for a bicycle trail. One of the residents found what he thought was a plastic ball, which was in fact a human skull. Further search of the area by investigators recovered more than 85% of the skeletal remains. A botanist estimated that the body had been in that same location for approximately fifteen years based upon the scene and clothing.
