QUINTON — The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation is still working to identify the person whose remains were found last December in Pittsburg County.

OSBI is sending out a reconstruction of the man's face in hopes of finding clues to his identity.

Last December, remains were discovered in a wooded area near Quinton. Authorities believe the body was placed there between two and five years ago.

The medical examiner's office was unable to determine the cause or manner of death.

OSBI says investigators believe the remains belong to a white or Hispanic male between the ages of 40 and 60. The man was between 5 foot 3 inches tall and 5 foot 8 inches tall. Authorities say the description does not fit any missing persons in the area.
