Skeletal Remains Tentatively Identified

New York man's remains discovered by Goldfield resident

On Sunday August 01, 1999, Goldfield resident Doug Churchill discovered the skeletal remains of a white male adult along the old stagecoach road leading out of Goldfield to Las Vegas.

Churchill had been riding his all-terrain vehicle when he noticed a sheet blowing in the wind and discovered the remains.

The Esmeralda County Sheriff's Department, along with assistance from the Nevada Division of Investigation, recovered the remains on Tuesday.

Sheriff Elgen said the victim has tentatively been identified as a 50 year old white male from West Hempstead, New York. The release of the victim's name is being withheld until the family has been notified.

For more information, contact Sheriff Elgen at (775) 485-6373 or NDI Investigator Martin Roberto at (775) 687-3779 ext. 299.
