BETHLEHEM, N.Y. - Deputy Chief Timothy Beebe of the
Bethlehem Police Department tells NEWS10 his detectives are close to identifying the
person whose mummified remains were discovered in Selkirk on Sunday
Beebe tells NEWS10 that his department has
received numerous calls since her story aired last
night. He says he believes his detectives
know who the man was.
They are right now trying to make
contact with the man's family.
Beebe would only say that the man
had ties to the Selkirk and Bethlehem area.
The mummified remains were found
along Route 9W in a wooded area of Selkirk by passers-by.
Police said the body had been at the
spot for about six months and without any signs of trauma or foul play, it is
believed the man died of natural causes.
Bethlehem Police released a photo of
two homemade tattoos on the man's left arm. One which read "George Loves Linda"
encircled in a heart. The other was the letters TLA, perhaps meaning true love
