    From the above link,

    "PINELLAS COUNTY, Fla. (WFLA) – Skeletal remains were found Tuesday morning at the War Veterans Memorial Park in unincorporated St. Petersburg.

    Deputies arrived at the park, located at 9600 Bay Pine Blvd., around 10:49 a.m."

    The article also says "the skeletal remains are human..." and that at this time identity and gender is unknown.

    You are correct they are not sure yet the gender. The list I made where from Pinellas Sheriff's missing persons website who went missing from St. Pete. There's a link also for those missing through SPPD and there are males also.

    That is interesting. It sounds like it would be possible that they're native remains.

    I'm surprised that LE did not mention this possibility. It's one of those wait and see I guess. If there are levis or other clothes that they found then it's probably not.

    Yeah, there could be any number of clues to indicate that it's a relatively recent death. Clothing, a watch, fillings in the teeth, more than bones remaining, wrapped in plastic...who knows.

    It's so hard to wait.

    Bumping. This case is now on Namus and a whole bunch of information has been added:

    https://identifyus.org/en/cases/15482

    - he was white and between 65 and 80 years old
    - estimated height is 68 inches and weight about 100 pounds
    - hair color was grey
    - postmortem interval is about 5 weeks
    - he had fractured A LOT of bones in the past and received surgery several times.
    - two surgical plates were still in place in his lower right arm, it's estimated they were manufactured in the early or mid 1980s.
    - he probably walked with a limp
    - if the reconstrucions are correct, he had a strong underbite
    - they found a pair of grey boxer shorts size L and a black and gold Miykon watch near the remains

    Reconstructions:

    I checked Charleyproject and Doenetwork for the time frame but couldn't find anyone who matches the description.

    Re: the underbite/slightly distorted face: the medical details describe significant damage to the left side of his head and face, so that might not reflect how he looked earlier in life.

    PS The damage to his left side appears to be consistent with being thrown from a horse. He's a small man; I wonder if he was a jockey, trainer, rodeo rider?

    The previous fractured bones and damage to his body could have been a result of a severe car accident. I wonder if the orthopedic plates can be tracked.

    Sleuthster if your family goes to that park, how big is it that remains could have turned to skeleton before being found?
