The skeletal remains of a man found in a wooded area of Ocala in late March were identified as belonging to Norberto Munoz, 51. There were no signs of trauma or foul play discovered, according to the Ocala Police Department.

A couple stumbled across the remains on March 31 near Northwest Gainesville Road in a wooded area approximately 50 to 70 yards from the roadway, according to reports.

Police believe Munoz was homeless. They have not been able to locate any family and are asking the public for help. Anyone with information about Munoz is asked to call Detective Trevor Barth at 352-369-7000.
