Human Remains Found At NJ Chemical Plant In 2013 Identified

MORRISTOWN, N.J. (CBSNewYork/AP) — Authorities have identified human remains that were found at a chemical plant in northern New Jersey.

The bones were discovered at the Hercules Chemical Company in Roxbury in November 2013.

The Morris County Prosecutor’s Office says forensic scientists and a forensic odontologist have identified the person as 29-year-old Ronald Blanco of Wharton.

The prosecutor’s office says there is no indication of trauma or suspicious activity that would suggest Blanco died as the result of a crime.
