WEST TRENTON, N.J. (CBSNewYork) – New Jersey State Police are trying to identify the body of a man whose remains were found nearly a year ago.

The man’s body was discovered in a wooded area back on July 20, 2011 in Hamilton off South Broad Street near the Interstate 295 overpass, an area frequented by transients and the homeless, according to investigators.

He was wearing navy, white and red plaid pajama pants and a white t-shirt as well as a blue, medical-type shoe often worn by those diagnosed with diabetes, police said.
