How did I not know about this? Did we have a thread on this yet? I don't remember seeing it. News from last month.

Anyone know where they found him? This is in my neck of the woods and I didn't hear anything about it or where exactly it was.

"The remains of a 68-year-old Cherry Hill man who had been missing since June were found by a hunter earlier this month in the Waterford section of Wharton State Forest, police said."

@mazzgolf, sadly I was the one to find the remains. He was in maple island section at the far end from power lines. There’s a path that dead ends when the two swamps meet. He was laying there. 

Sad for the guy ... hate to think someone just died alone like that out in the woods.

And that couldn't have been a fun day for you.. so sorry for you to, as well.

So you were the lucky one. I hunt Wharton all the time and would hate finding a body. How long did it take for law enforcement show? What kind of questions did they ask?

Deffintely wasn’t planned in my day. I carried a whole bucket of corn as a I had a extra camera I wanted to put up by where I was already hunting. Walked down the trail and about 100 yards from a pin I dropped to where I wanted to get to, I found hin. It was basically the full Skelton. If it was a body and not just bones I think it would have shook me up a bit. At first I thought it possibly was a deer as I was waking up to it, it was about 5 yards off the trail. I realized it wasn’t a deer. But with it being just bones, I didn’t call 911 and I called the non-emergency line. Try describing where you are over the phone to them.. didn’t work. So I had to drive out to the power lines, meet the cops and fire department. They  used the brush truck and followed me to get to the spot. Got to the trail, give them some chigger spray, then walked down to show them where it was. It was probaley 600 yards from where you would park if you wanted to walk down it. Not a lot of people in that area tho. Showed them and then walked back to my truck. State park police showed up and I just gave them a report of how I came across it. Once that was done, I was good to go.
