EXETER, R.I. (AP)— Rhode Island State Police are investigating the discovery of human remains in a heavily wooded area of Exeter and whether the remains are those of a missing Pennsylvania man.
Maj. Todd Catlow says the skeletal remains were found Friday.
He says there are no signs of foul play, although police are treating it as a homicide investigation.
Catlow says because of the location, police are looking at whether it is 42-year-old Mamadou Fal-Camara, of Newportville, Pa., and more recently of Brockton, Mass.
Fal-Camara was reported missing in May from a drug and alcohol rehab facility about two to three miles from where the remains were found.
Catlow says police did two searches over the summer with dogs, but the remains were found outside the search area.
