A portion of remains sent to the University of North Texas Center for Human I.D.

The Associated Press is reporting; authorities still are trying to identify human remains found in February in a desert area in Tucson.

A portion of the remains has been sent to the University of North Texas Center for Human Identification.

Pima County investigators say the male victim died from obvious signs of trauma and his body was buried two to three years ago.

The skeletal remains were found Feb. 23. They later were transported to the county Medical Examiner's office so a forensic anthropologist could examine them.

Authorities say the victim was between the ages of 35 to 55 at the time of his death. They say he was between 6-foot-3 and 6-foot-5.
