    AZ - Colorado City, Male Skel UP13327, 60-70, near Honeymoon Trail, Nov'14

    A group of Boy Scouts from Cedar City made an eerie discovery Saturday when they stumbled upon human remains while on a 20-mile hike on the Arizona Strip, just southeast of St. George...

    The group found several bones, including a skull, ribs, vertebrae, femur, an arm bone and tailbone, spread out within a 10-yard radius, along with pants, a shirt and a blanket, Togisala said.

    Though Togisala said he is not a human remains expert, he said his best estimate of how long the remains had been there is around five-six months and he said they could still smell the stench of the body.

    Doesn't the shoe in the picture belong to the photographer?

    According to the images page at link, this photo was taken the day he went missing. He was wearing everything in the photo except the jeans...he had on jean shorts.

    Every time I see St. George, I wonder if it's Steve Koecher, but it sounds like this person hasn't been deceased nearly long enough to be SK.

    The article (http://www.stgeorgeutah.com/news/arc.../#.VOlPk_lh7xt) has several good pictures of the skull. Wish I was good with that kind of thing the way Carl is, but based on what he has said in other posts, it's probably the skull of a caucasian (narrow nose, "aviator glasses" eye openings). Or maybe not.

    That's what I'm seeing. Clearly male. Probably Caucasian, though I wouldn't rule-out Hispanic or NtvAm. The photos of the skull are taken from a strange angle, but from what I can see, it does look like Caucasian male.

    Guessing this is the same guy... if so, a lot more information about his clothing and belongings is included.

    https://identifyus.org/en/cases/13327

    Also, it looks like Mohave County has jurisdiction. Can someone correct the title?

    It says a Safeway club card was found with the body, could that be traced to find out his identity? Aren't most club cards attached to a phone number?

    This may be where the hoodie sweatshirt came from: http://www.marincatholic.org/Page/Student-Life/Arts

    It's a school in the bay area (near San Francisco).

    Huh. That blanket is an unusual one to be with an adult male. Precious Moments is more the kind of thing that appeals to the same demographic that used to be into Beanie Babies.

    Bumping. I wonder if this is Charles Samek:

    http://charleyproject.org/case/charles-daniel-earl-samek

    What makes me think it could be him:

    - the age is right, UID is believed to be between 60 and 70, Samek was 65
    - the estimated time of death was within 6 months (it says in the article above that you could still smell the stench of the body). Samek was last seen in August, the body was found in November, so three months
    - UID had long grey and dishwater blonde hair; Samek's hair was long and the color looks grey-blond-brown-ish in the pics
    - Samek was missing three teeth in his upper jaw. In the pic of the skull you can see that there's teeth missing in the upper jaw (could of course have happened after death)
    - UID wore blue jeans size 36x32 so he was heavy but not very tall. Samek was 5'4 and weighted 200lbs and was last seen wearing blue jeans
    - Samek was mentally ill so maybe the baby blanket was a safety blanket kinda thing?
    - He was last seen in Farmington, NM and wanted to travel to Moab/Utah and possibly after that to Arizona. The body was found near St. George in southern Utah on the border to Arizona

    The only ruleout is Wesley Nebeker https://identifyus.org/en/cases/13327

    Charles Samek looks like a very good potential.
