Remains found in Mohave County ID'd as transient's

Posted: Updated:

The Mohave County Sheriff's Office has released the identity of the human remains found in Topock southeast of Colorado City on Nov. 9.

The Medical Examiner's Office said the remains were those of Jimmy James, 66, a transient. No cause of death had been determined, according to the medical examiner.

Identification was made possible by "hardware" found in a leg from an accident in San Diego in December 2010.

The remains were discovered by two children, who found the bones in the desert about a half-mile east of Needle Mountain Road.

The incident remains under investigation, according to the sheriff's office.
