Investigators in Monmouth County are still working to determine the gender and identity of the person whose skeletal remains were found Tuesday in a wooded area of Howell Township. But one clue could lead to a Brick connection.
Investigators released new information during the day Wednesday, detailing several items found near the remains which were discovered along Ramtown-Greenville Road. One of the items was a wristband that memorialized the life of a Brick Memorial High School student who passed away.
The wristband honored Kyle Guidice, who died in 2008. A copy of Guidice’s obituary, provided by the Monmouth County Prosecutor’s Office, said the 16-year-old boy died Nov. 15 at Ocean Medical Center and was a member of St. Dominic Catholic Church in town. A copy of the memorial bracelet is included with this story.
Detectives also found a Hybrid brand zip-up hooded sweatshirt, a digital watch, pants size 32/32 with a black belt, and Nike sneakers, size 8. The deceased also had a dental bridge in their upper four teeth.
Anyone with information regarding the person’s identity can contact Monmouth County Prosecutor’s Office Detective Andrea Tozzi at 800-533-7443 or Howell Township Police Department Detective Corporal Nancy Carroll at 732-938-4111.
