Human remains found in woods in Exeter


EXETER (AP) — Rhode Island State Police are investigating the discovery of human remains in a heavily wooded area of Exeter and whether the remains are those of a missing Pennsylvania man.

Maj. Todd Catlow said the skeletal remains were found Friday.

He said there are no signs of foul play, although police are treating it as a homicide investigation.

Catlow said because of the location, police are looking at whether it is 42-year-old Mamadou Fal-Camara, of Newportville, Pa., and more recently of Brockton, Mass.

Fal-Camara was reported missing in May from a drug and alcohol rehab facility about two to three miles from where the remains were found.

Catlow said police did two searches over the summer with dogs, but the remains were found outside the search area.
