New York State Police troopers are asking the public's help as they continue a years-long investigation of the discovery of human skeletal remains that were found alongside the Northern State Parkway on Long Island.

New York State Police troopers investigating a crash at approximately 11:30 a.m. on March 26, 2004, in Plainview discovered the remains in a wooded area on the center median of the parkway.

The remains were unearthed during the accident investigation shortly east of Sunnyside Boulevard.

According to police, the unidentified remains are believed to be that of a man who was between the ages of 35 and 45 at the time of his death. It is believed that he had been dead for 10 to 20 years when the remains were discovered.

At the time of his death, the man was wearing a red, “Members Only” style jacket that was found to be manufactured in 1982 and tan bell-bottom pants. The man was believed to be between 5 feet and 5-foot-4.

The investigation into the remains is ongoing. Anyone with information has been asked to contact New York State Police Troop L’s Major Crimes Unit on Long Island by calling (631) 756-3300.
