KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) _ Authorities in Kansas City, Kan., are working to identify human remains found this week in a vacant lot.
Police said the remains of a decomposed body were found Tuesday in northeast Kansas City, Kan.
Police spokesman Tom Tomasic said in a release Wednesday that the victim was likely a white man older than 40, with possible facial hair, dentures and a surgical plate in his right ankle. The victim also may have served in the military and has likely been missing for several months.
Tomasic says police are encouraging people with possible information about the victim to call police.
