SAGINAW, MI — Three years after human bones were found in rural Saginaw County, new DNA analysis is shedding light on their origin.

The clothed skeleton in question was found in a wooded area of Chapin Township in September 2018. Investigators first sent the bones to a Michigan State University laboratory in hopes of identifying them. Staff there determined the skeleton was that of a man between the ages of 25 and 55 who ranged from 5 feet, 2 inches to 5 feet, 10 inches tall.
