YORK, Pa. (AP) — The York coroner says human remains found last week near a shopping mall are those of a white man in his 30s or 40s and were likely at the location for three to 10 years.

The York Dispatch reported ( ) that Coroner Barry Bloss said Monday the human skeleton may have been at the site near West Manchester Mall for even more than a decade.

Bloss isn't sure what caused the death.

Police tell the newspaper some of the evidence recovered from the scene makes them consider the death to be suspicious.

Tree-trimmers discovered the body last week in a brushy area near the mall, just northwest of York. Authorities haven't been able to match the remains with any missing local people.
