SUMMIT COUNTY, Colorado — More than 20 human bones discovered last week on the south side of Officer's Gulch have been identified as belonging to Anthony Kleczka of Aurora.
Kleczka was reported missing in October 2001, when he was 21 years old.
The remains — which included a jaw bone and weathered backpack with photo identification — were found near the Ten Mile Creek recpath at an elevation of about 10,300 feet, half a mile west of eastbound Interstate 70, according to a press release from Summit County Coroner Joanne Richardson.
Cause of death is listed as undetermined.
Summit County Sheriff's Office public information officer Paulette Horr said Kleczka “probably slid down about 75 feet” while hiking up a rock face.
According to Richardson's office, it is unusual to find ID near human remains bones, and it served as a fortunate starting point.
“More often than not, when human bones are found, it is virtually impossible to identify them,” according to the press release.
A pair of weathered khaki pants containing ID matching that found in the backpack further contributed to circumstantial evidence.
Dental records confirmed identification of Kleczka's body Tuesday afternoon.
Two hikers discovered the remains the afternoon of June 18 and contacted authorities, who discovered more bones up a steep incline, “which were consistent with predatory activity,” according to the press release.

How very fortunate for the investigators that photo I.D. was found near the body!
Sad to hear that he died alone, and that no one found his remains for such a long time.
