    yes good call coffeeandacig! it looks similar the pinky ring Carmelo Diaz is wearing on his right hand.. but with all that jewelry he is not wearing a watch..so vintage Japanese 50s 60s could be something to look for.

    If I'm right about the pinky ring...Carmelo Diaz (posted above by madamx- post #17) seems to be sporting quite a handful of rings. http://nypdnews.com/2017/04/missing-person-bronx-37/

    I'm finding VELLACCIO watches on eBay. Located a couple women's watches with the identical face. The description indicated it is " modern 2000 - present." Looking further.

    So many people this could be. I hope his family recognizes the jewelry. The ring seems very old and custom made.

    I used to manage a building on this block - this street is known for drug problems - cannot count the amount of incidents we had that attracted Yonkers police and even FBI attention. I would bet good money that this UID will not be anyone listed in any MP database, will be a male in his 50s - 60s, Hispanic, involved in the drug world.

    Women's watch and the ring with tape could indicate a women. We used to tape up our boyfriend's class ring like that so we could wear it. I think it's a young women.

    The watch is Vellaccio but looks more like a man's watch than a woman's to me. The ring with the tape might just be from him losing weight and trying to keep the ring tight on his finger.

    Yonkers police ID skeletal remains discovered over the summer

    Yonkers police identified the remains as middle-aged Westchester man Michael Newman, also known as Michael Nuwnen, but nothing else is known at this point.

    Police are still investigating the circumstances around his death and how his remains ended up in a rolled up carpet outside of 165 Bruce Ave.

    Detectives are asking anyone with information to call (914) 377-7724 and reference case #2017-062205. All calls are confidential. The public can also send an anonymous tips via text message by texting the key word YPD plus the tip to 847411.

    Newman's remains were discovered on June 5. In the middle of June, police released pictures of jewelry that were found with the remains.
