Lee County Sheriff Gary Parsons said the hunter led officers to the remains which were wrapped in a blanket.According to Parsons, the identification of the individual is unknown.

    Results of autopsy performed on skeletal remains prompt murder investigation in Lee County
    By Wes Bunch
    Published December 5th, 2011 9:13 pm

    JONESVILLE — Authorities in Lee County are investigating the circumstances surrounding skeletal remains discovered last month as a homicide after autopsy results from the state forensic lab confirmed their prior suspicions.

    The unidentified body was discovered by a hunter Nov. 26 in a wooded area off State Route 612 in Stickleyville. The remains were found wrapped in a blanket approximately 400 yards behind the Heavenly Hills Trailer Park.

    Lee County Sheriff Gary Parsons said the forensic examination carried out in Roanoke revealed the person’s gender and likely cause of death, but few other details.

    “They’ve determined that it is a male, and that it appears to be blunt force trauma to the head as the cause of death, as best they can determine with what they have,” Parsons said. “Right now that’s all we know.”

    Parsons said the forensic report reinforced law enforcement’s view that the unidentified person died as a result of foul play.

    Although authorities are still working to positively identify the victim, Parsons said investigators do have some leads.

    “There is some suspicion it might be a Hispanic migrant worker who lived in the trailer park for a while with some other migrant workers,” Parsons said.

    Parsons said that dynamic makes things more difficult for investigators trying to track down witnesses and possible suspects.

    “All we’ve done so far is interview acquaintances of this young man,” Parsons said. “We know that two of the people who lived in the trailer park have been deported, so we’re having some problems. Not having an ID is going to be a problem, and locating the acquaintances that lived with him in the trailer park is going to be a problem.”

    Investigators did remove several pieces of evidence from the trailer in order to have them analyzed for possible clues, Parsons said.

    Parsons said officers are also trying to locate the possible victim’s relatives, who are also believed to be migrant workers.

    “We’re in the process of trying to track down family members,” Parsons said. “Many of these folks aren’t documented, but we have some indication that the person who is the suspected victim may have a child. If we can find that child, we’re going to try and get a DNA sample.”

    The only problem with this possible match is that OM's phone was turned on and off in MD which is literally on the other side of VA from where this body was found. FFX is up near DC and Lee Co is down at the TN/VA border. It's possible but...

    A year tomorrow. RIP.

    Medical Examiner Trying to ID Four Bodies


    Posted: Jan 16, 2013 6:21 PM EST
    By David Tate

    Roanoke Co., VA. - Right now authorities are working at least 140 cases across Virginia where bodies found cannot be identified.

    Wednesday, authorities put faces on four of these cases and then took their work to the media for help.
    In the spotlight are four men: A Hispanic male found in Lee County in 2011, another Hispanic man found in southern Carroll County just last year, a third Hispanic male found in Blairs in 2005, and a fourth man believed to have been missing since the flood of 1985.

    All of the first three are suspected of being migrant workers, which has made identifying them nearly impossible.

    It's not Oscar Velasco Montano -- his remains were ID'ed today.


    Remains are missing Va. man's

    Friday - 2/8/2013, 10:00am ET

    Oscar Velasco Montano, 29, of Springfield, was last seen July 9, 2011. (Frederick News-Post)

    Skeletal remains found last summer beside New Design Road are those of a Virginia man who disappeared 19 months ago under suspicious circumstances.

    Oscar Velasco Montano, 29, of Springfield, was last seen July 9, 2011, by a co- worker at his construction job at Tysons Corner Center, a shopping mall in McLean. His family reported him missing two days later.

    Fairfax County Police are investigating the case as a homicide, according to Capt. Tim Clarke, of the Frederick County Sheriff's Office.

    The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in Baltimore has ruled Montano's death a homicide, spokesman Bruce Goldfarb said. Goldfarb said he could not reveal the cause of death.

    A tree-trimming crew found the bones Aug. 8 in the woods 10 to 15 yards in the 4100 block of New Design Road. The spot is across the road from a farmer's field and just a few hundred yards from a small row of houses.

    The remains were charred, and deputies found evidence of a fire nearby, according to the sheriff's office. Investigators believe animals scattered the bones around the immediate area.

    Fairfax County Police contacted the sheriff's office after information about the discovery was released to law enforcement agencies across the region, Clarke said.

    "They called us and said they were working on a missing persons case they believed was a homicide," Clarke said.

    Montano was identified through DNA testing, Clarke said.

    A wooden cross bearing Montano's name and several bouquets of flowers had been set near the spot where the bones were found. Sheriff's deputies removed the cross Thursday.

    Fairfax County Police planned to take action in the case Thursday evening and thought premature public identification would undermine their efforts, Clarke said.

    According to a Facebook page set up by Montano's family and friends called "Help Find Oscar L. Velasco Montano," Montano, a native of Bolivia, told his supervisor he was going out with friends after work on the day he disappeared.

    Montano's sister found his minivan at the mall July 10, 2011, but it was gone when she went back the next day, according to the page.

    The page made no specific mention of where Montano's remains were found; one post by a commenter indicated that his body was found in a field. A Dec. 27 post in Spanish stated that the family had been told of his death but made no mention of the circumstances.

    Officer Don Gotthardt, Fairfax County Police spokesman, said police would not comment on Montano's disappearance and death until the planned action in the case was completed.

    No and yes DylansMom34. Oscar was found/identified in Maryland, but he is not this particular UID. Different UID case. (not listed on WebSleuths) We can rule out Oscar Montano for this thread.
