Police Working to Identify Remains Found in Exeter

Sep 10, 2013

State police are working to identify human remains found in Exeter. The remains were found about two miles from where a man disappeared four months ago.

The investigation began Friday when a hunter found the human remains in a heavily wooded area near Purgatory road in Exeter.  State police say there are no overt signs of foul play but they’re treating the case as a homicide so that all potential evidence is preserved.

The remains have not yet been identified.  They were found two to three miles from where a Pennsylvania man vanished last spring.   Mamadou Fal-Camara of Newportville, Pennsylvania was last seen at the Phoenix House on Main Street in Exeter May 3rd and has not been seen since. Police say there is no conclusive evidence linking the missing man to the found remains at this time.
