Authorities getting closer to ID on skull remains



Published: Thu, February 28, 2013 @ 3:27 p.m.

YOUNGSTOWN — Investigators are closer to determining the identity of a skull found by a dog on the East Side earlier this month, but more work must be done before there is a definitive identification made.

Dr. Joseph Ohr, Mahoning County deputy coroner, said investigators now know the skull is that of a man of mixed heritage between 25 and 50 years old. That information has been used to shorten a list of hundreds of missing persons in northeast Ohio and Western Pennsylvania.

Dr, Ohr said the next step in the identification process will be to go to the families of those on the shortened list and check dental records. The teeth remaining in the skull were well cared for with metal caps that indicate recent dental work.
