    NJ - Buena Vista Twp, Skeletal Remains, 'NYC lifeguard' windbreaker, Sep'15

    http://pix11.com/2015/09/18/human-sk...-jersey-woods/

    BUENA VISTA TOWNSHIP, N.J. — State Police are trying to identify skeletal human remains that were found in a wooded section of Atlantic County.

    A hunter made the discovery off Route 40 and Main Avenue in Buena Vista Township on Thursday.

    Troopers also found a red windbreaker with “N.Y.C. Lifeguard Dept. of Parks” written on the back. There also was a black baseball cap with “Puerto Rico” written in blue and red on the brim and in a circular pattern with the Puerto Rico flag on a seal on the front.

    State Police are hoping anyone who recognizes the items will contact them.

    NJ - Buena Vista, UP#14279, 18-99, NYC Lifeguard Coat+PuertoRico baseball cap, Sep'15

    This person's remains were just found this past week. There isn't much in regards to stats, but s/he had a few distinctive items that caught my interest.

    IMO it doesn't look like the remains were there very long. The items pictured are relatively clean and the coat is still a bright orange (no sign of fading or discoloration). I wish we knew what model phone he/she had so we could narrow down the timeline more.

    Here's info on NYC department of parks lifeguards. Theres only 1400 of them. Maybe that'll make it easier to narrow down who this is..

    I don't think this person is going to remain unidentified for long.

    Buena Vista is between Atlantic City and Philadelphia. The body's location is roughly here: https://goo.gl/maps/NDBBGzimsaC2
    Opinions expressed are strictly my own (who else would they belong to???)

    I agree with you carbuff.

    This article has a picture of the cap: http://www.pressofatlanticcity.com/n...ea23c3794.html

    There's also an associated video about an arrest, but I think it's about a different case, maybe?

    I wonder if that means they've been IDed. Hopefully!
