    PA - Human Remains Found in Susquehanna River - York County - 15 Apr 2017

    Ray Gricar? Unlikely, but maybe. It would be nice for his loved ones to have an answer.

    Eta: if a body was found it's certainly not him. But remains or bones maybe.

    Thanks as always for the articles, Richrd. I looked up the clothing brands, and Edwin jeans are high-end, mostly $100 and up a pair. The Zara sweatshirts and hoodies are about $40 apiece. The logo on the boots appears to be Red Wings, but I wonder if he was really wearing them as work boots instead of merely as part of his personal style. Most jobs that require work boots would be tough on designer/fashion jeans.

    Yeah, could be just general look, but that's also a common look for guys doing casual outdoors sorts of things, like taking a walk or maybe hunting in half-decent weather.

    Could it be one of these two? http://www.wtae.com/article/men-repo...county/9224484

    or http://www.missingkids.com/poster/NCMC/1291956 (missing near harrisburg)

    The clothes tell me this is a younger person. I wish we knew the sizes.

    Person based on this clothes is under 25. I am guessing 16-21

    This map shows roughly the location. From the descriptions in the news articles, the body was found in that strip of green between the railroad track and the river, just below the PA Turnpike overpass. "Fishermen on Saturday morning found the body halfway between the river and the railroad tracks near Marsh Run Road, south of the Turnpike overpass." http://abc27.com/2017/04/17/coroner-...g-susquehanna/

    wow, that is so sad to hear. I have revisited his case few times and wondered about possible car incident, but I am still kind of taken aback by this news. It is quite chilling to actually see his UID thread (I have not seen it before) with his remains/cloth on display prior to his identification.

    Am I reading correctly that his car has been found in January parked in different city while he was located in Susquehanna River PA? Hmm. I should check maps. I really hope his mugging day prior to his disappearance did not affect him to the point of doing anything drastic, and that cause of death will be ruled rather some unfortunate accident.

    NEW CUMBERLAND, Pa. (WHTM) – Police say a body found along the Susquehanna River in York County earlier this month is that of a New York man who went missing more than four months ago.

    The body was identified as that of 30-year-old Taku Minemura, of Mineola, N.Y.
    Fishermen on April 15 found the body halfway between the river and the railroad tracks near Marsh Run Road
    York County Coroner Pam Gay said Minemura’s car was found in Summerdale on Jan. 14.
