Skeletal remains discovered by children playing near Crystal Lakes Golf Course were determined to be those of a middle-aged white male through a preliminary autopsy conducted in Newberry on Tuesday morning, according to Tonyia McGirt, public information officer for Sumter Police Department.
Officers were notified of the remains, which were found off Gaines Road, about 6:30 p.m.
Though the autopsy was unable to render an identification or cause of death, McGirt said a pathologist with Newberry Pathology Associates determined the man may have been between 55 and 60 years old at the time of his death.
She said Sumter police and Sumter County Coroner's Office are actively working to locate dental records of unresolved missing persons in the region to compare with the remains.
