TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - The medical examiner's office has provided a description for the bones found at the former Deanza Drive Inn Theatre, according to Sgt. Chris Widmer with the Tucson Police Department.

A forensic examination determined the manner of death as a homicide, and that the bones are from a white male, between 45 and 60 years old with red hair and possibly a red beard.

The Office of the Medical Examiner believes the bones were at this location, 1401 S. Alvernon Way, for several years.

Officers originally responded to the theatre on May 17 when they received a report that construction workers had found bones.

TPD has this investigation open as a homicide.

Anyone with information about this man is asked to call 9-1-1 or 88-CRIME.
