Necklace Found With Human Remains
Detectives hope that releasing the images will help lead to a possible identification of the dead person.
The pictures released Friday show a necklace with dark, plastic beads with a crucifix and a Christian religious medallion.
Skeletal remains were discovered in a wooded area between Livingston Road and Wal-Mart, 5420 Juliet Blvd., around 5 p.m. Wednesday.
Articles of clothing, including a shirt and a pair of pants, were also found with the remains.
The skeletal remains will be taken to the Collier County Medical Examiner's Office on Friday, where they will be analyzed. A forensic anthropologist will help determine factors such as the person's sex, age and race.
DNA from the skeletal remains will also be sent to a missing person database.
An investigation continues.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Collier County Sheriff's Office at 252-9300, or if you wish to remain anonymous call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-780- TIPS (8477).
