York, Penn. — Detectives in Pennsylvania want dentists' help identifying human skeletal remains as part of a homicide investigation.

The remains were found on Nov. 18, 2013, near the intersection of Carlisle Road and Loucks Road in West Manchester Township and are of a male between 35 and 45 years old, said Sean Conway, detective with the West Manchester Township Police Department. Because the remains were so decomposed, investigators estimated the man's height between 5 feet 3 inches and 5 feet 10 inches, Mr. Conway said.

There was no hair on the body and no clothes, he said, and it's estimated to have been there about three years. The man had an acrylic maxillary dental appliance that replaced the majority of his upper teeth, Mr. Conway said.

If you have any information regarding this case, contact Mr. Conway at 1-717-792-9514 or sconway@westmanchestertownship.com.
