    VA - James City Co., Asian/HispMale UP9385, 25-60, along York River, Nov'76


    Virginia officials are asking the public to help them identify skeletal remains.

    Chief Medical Examiner William Gormley on Tuesday unveiled facial models of eight people who were found dead in central Virginia and have never been identified.

    Gormley says three of the sets of remains were found at separate locations and times in Stafford County. Two of the individuals were discovered in Caroline County and one was found in Henrico County. The remaining two were located in James City County and York County.

    The facial approximations are of five men and three women. Their remains were discovered between 1972 and 2014.

    Gormley is encouraging anyone who may be able to identify the individuals to contact his office.

    With Asian, Hispanic, and Native American heritage California seems like a likely origin possibility, based purely on past demographics and population numbers. Most Asian immigrants arrived in the US after 1965, when immigration laws were opened back up. Before this, Asian Americans were much less of the total population and there were more ethnic enclaves.
