DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – Efforts to identify skeletal remains in Dayton are going nationwide.

The Montgomery County Coroner’s Office is working to identify the bones discovered in the 3300 block of Home Avenue on July 16.

Investigators hoped that a distinctive jacket found at the scene might help someone identify the man.

They have now sent the information to a national crime identification database in hopes to make a breakthrough.

The remains are those of a man believed to be 5’11” between 35 and 65 years old.

The hooded jacket has a decorative beaded pattern on it.
