Human Remains Found in Lincoln Identified

Posted: Updated:

LINCOLN, Del.- Delaware State Police have identified human remains found last month in a stream bed in Lincoln.

Troopers said Monday that the remains are those of 32-year-old Edwin Montecinos of Milford. 

Police said three teenage boys were walking along the railroad track north of Lincoln at around 1 p.m. Tuesday, June 18, when they found what appeared to be human bones. The teens then notified a parent who in turn notified state police. The decomposed human remains were located west of the railroad tracks in a wooded area at the north end of Front Street in Lincoln.

The cause and manner of death have not yet been determined. It was not known how long Montecinos had been dead.

Anyone with information about Montecinos is urged to call Detective John King at (302) 856-5850, ext. 208. Tips can also be called in to Delaware Crime Stoppers at 1-800-TIP-3333.
