Police: Human remains found in Delmar

Autopsy reportedly set for Monday

DELMAR — Human remains were discovered in a wooded area, town police announced Sunday.

The Bethlehem Police Department received a call at 4:20 p.m. Saturday with a report of human remains in a wooded area behind 55 Delaware Ave. in the hamlet in the town of Bethlehem. The remains were found by a hunter, according to Daily Gazette news-gathering partner CBS6 Albany.

The remains have advanced decomposition, according to police, so it’s too early to identity ethnicity, age or gender. It is also too early, police say, to determine how long the remains have been there or the cause of death.

An autopsy will be performed Monday at Albany Medical Center, according to CBS6. There will be additional searches Monday in the area, according to CBS6.

Hoffman Car Wash and Jiffy Lube are located at 55 Delaware Ave.

New York State Police, the Albany County District Attorney’s Office and state forest rangers are assisting with the investigation.
