Police are withholding release of the individual's name until the identification is confirmed.
Delaware State Police believe they know the identity of the person whose remains were found near the Firefly venue in Dover.
Delaware State Police spokesman Master Cpl. Gary Fournier said an undisclosed form of identification was located with the skeletal remains, which were discovered in a wooded area east of Leipsic Road near Marley Lane.
The remains were found June 15 as an individual was walking through the area. The hiker called police, who confirmed the body was human.
“Identification was found with the body, although we will not release the identity until the person is positively identified through the Division of Forensic Science,” Fournier said.
The remains were turned over to the DFS for an autopsy and cause of death determination shortly after they were found.
The individual’s family has been notified of the discovery, Fournier added.
A call to the DFS to obtain additional information has yet to be returned.
State police are continuing to investigate the circumstances of the individual’s death.
