CA Painter find human remains under Pittsburgh bridge.
PITTSBURGH CA—Police say a construction worker discovered a skull and other human remains under a Pittsburgh railroad trestle.
The remains were discovered Monday under a railroad bridge on the city's North Side.
Painter Bernard Merritt says he didn't know what he'd found at first, but once he saw the skull he told his boss and police were called.
Investigators from the medical examiner's office retrieved the remains. Officials say they haven't yet determined whether the skeleton is male or female.
Edited Should be CA not PA

Is this Pittsburgh PA or Pittsburgh California (city inland from SF)? All the other articles are about California.Opinions expressed are strictly my own (who else would they belong to???)

Okay, it is Pittsburgh, PA.
I found this local article with a bit more information: http://www.wpxi.com/news/25093257/detail.html
This article gives the trestle address as Anderson Street near Stockton Avenue: http://kdka.com/local/North.side.skull.2.1922997.htmlOpinions expressed are strictly my own (who else would they belong to???)

This is my neck of the woods... Where they are describing is where a lot of homeless people seek shelter. Very sad. I hope they are able to identify the remains.

I hope this presumably homeless UID receives proper media attention so he/she can be identified. Sadly, we had a possibly homeless UID found in nearby North Fayette Township last December and there never was much about him in the news beyond the reports of the initial discovery. He was found with an entire duffel bag of clothes, too, and there's been no description of those or any vital statistics.

I'll email Allegheny Co. ME to ask about the North Fayette Twp. UID.
News article: The remains under the bridge were those of a woman, 5'2"-5'5", 25-35, possible previously broken nose.

After talking to the ME, I learned that the North Fayette Twp. man was identified. May he rest in peace.
I called in this possible match. Her height (5'2") and age (25) match the UID's range, and she was last seen at her home 9 minutes away from where the UID was found. She disappeared in 2006 and there's no information on whether the remains are four years old. There's also no information on whether she had a previously broken nose. She also had a gap between her front teeth that isn't mentioned in the UID's description. She was not yet on the ME's list of rule-outs by dentals so the ME will look into this.

I just PMed you, Chaddylex. In short, I was a bit nervous during the conversation with the man from the ME office and when he gave me the two female ruleouts' names, I wasn't expecting them and didn't have a pencil nearby. When I hung up I completely blanked on the names, though neither sounded familiar from the list of PA missing.
He only had two rule-out names, so don't hesitate to call in any other good potential matches. Contact numbers are in this article: http://www.thepittsburghchannel.com/...94/detail.html<-- Watched one too many Hanna-Barbera "teenage detective" cartoons as a kid.

It would be nice if they had a picture of the Pittsburgh Steeler shirt that the UID was wearing. We might be able to figure out what year or where the shirt was sold at... Here is the namus description of the Clothes:
Pittsburgh Steelers T-shirt (size not discernable), "Winnie the Pooh" Brand, jean overalls (appears to be oversized and heavily deteriorated), light-colored, underwire bra (size not discernable), underwear, dark-colored socks
Also she had an orange rubber bracelet for HIV/AID awareness, those types of bracelets just came around over the past few years, I am thinking the UID has only been there for a few years at the most. The bracelet was from Adagio Health, I did a google search and it is located in Erie, PA, which is North of Pittsburgh... Erie to Pittsburgh is about 2hours in travel. (thinking maybe she was from the Erie area)
