    WI - Vinland, WhtMale Skeletal UP13898, 40-65, near railroad tracks, May'15

    TOWN OF VINLAND – The Winnebago County Sheriff Dept. is looking for information about human remains found last week in the town of Vinland.

    The remains were found near the railroad tracks, south of County GG, just east of Interstate 41.

    The initial examination determined that the remains appear to be those of a white male with an unknown age. The investigation was also able to determine that the remains had been at this location anytime from January of 2013 to December of 2014.

    Further forensic testing is being conducted to determine the identification of the deceased and the cause of death.

    Anyone with information about this incident please should contact the Winnebago County Sheriff’s Office 920-236-7300.

    Officials waited to release information to the public until they contacted local families who are missing loved ones, Mack said.

    "We're showing them photos of the clothes that were at the scene, property that was at the scene, and seeing if any of them could identify if any of that belonged to their loved ones. To be blunt, the answer was no from all of them," Mack said. "There are some dental records we can utilize, but as of right now we really have no idea who this is."

    Neenah is in Winnebago County. I would assume he has been ruled out since the press release is post checking with families of their local missing persons.

    A ruleout based on the family not recognizing the clothes and other belongings that might have been there is not really definitive though. Anyone could have some stuff that the family hasn't seen or doesn't remember, and anything he wasn't wearing could be even just randomly and coincidentally there and not associated with the deceased while he was alive.
