KENOSHA — Kenosha police have released new information after skeletal remains were discovered in April in a wooded area to the west of 122nd Avenue — in the hopes that someone can help identify the remains.

The remains were discovered on April 5th, and Kenosha police say they were sent to a forensic anthropologist for examination. The anthropologist determined the remains are those of an African-American man between the ages of 30 and 60, standing 5’4″ to 6′ tall.

It is believed the victim suffered from Sickle cell anemia.
