    I'd like to know how this guy found these bones. Herndon is a pretty populated area and I'm sure the Difficult Run trail has been frequented by people for as long as those bones have been there. How are they just now being found? Or was dude digging around in underbrush, 50 feet off the path? So many questions..

    Metal detecting? Botanist? Plenty of innocent reasons for not being on trail.

    Oh don't get me wrong, I'm not blaming the guy who discovered the remains. It's just beyond me how a dead body could sit alongside a popular trail, rotting away, and no one notices it.

    The remains have been identified as Joseph John Swain, 50, of no fixed address. Police say there is no clear sign of death. The death is defined as undetermined due to the nature of the bones, police said.
