    Thanks, Chico~

    There have been a number of missing from that area that I can recall. It will be interesting to follow this and see the outcome of the discovery.

    Posted: 6:25 am EDT July 1, 2009

    LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. -- Gwinnett County police say they are trying to identify the skeletal remains of a man found in woods near Georgia 316.

    Police spokesman Cpl. David Schiralli said Tuesday the cause of death also isn't known.

    Schiralli said employees of a tree service were working in some woods near the Barrow County line when they found the scattered bones on Monday.

    The remains have been sent to the state Crime Lab for identification and cause of death.

    Gwinnett County police, state trying to identify skeleton

    ~snip~

    The remains have been sent to the state Crime Lab at the Georgia Bureau of Investigation for identification and cause of death.

    Gwinnett police said in a news release dental records indicated, however, that the remains are not of Justin Gaines, who disappeared November 2007.

    I'm sorry to hear that it wasn't Justin Gaines, but I wonder who it is?

    According to http://s10.invisionfree.com/usedtobe...howtopic=46434 and another forum I can't link to, this decedent was identified.

    He was Scott Spalding, 38, missing since 2000, whose death was ruled a suicide.
