SAUGET, Ill. (AP) Authorities in Sauget say they’ve located skeletal
remains with five Russian rubles in the pocket of the person’s sweatpants.

The Belleville News-Democrat reports (http://bit.ly/11VcYz4) Wednesday
that a hunter contacted police Monday when he found a skull. Sauget Police
Detective Sgt. Vito Parisi says there is a hole in the back of the skull. He
says he suspects foul play in the death. A lower jaw bone was found nearby.

Police returned to the site Tuesday and found the rest of the remains,
including blue sweatpants on the lower body with the coins in the pocket. Parisi
says the body was near a waste water treatment facility. He says he thinks it
had been there at least two years.
