LEHIGH TOWNSHIP -- Two years after a skull was found in the woods in the Poconos, investigators have identified the man whose remains were found.

The Wayne County coroner said the skull belongs to George Rymko. The man from Connecticut was last seen in Scranton in 2011.

A hunter found Rymko's skull in a wooded area off Route 507 near Gouldsboro in 2015.

The coroner said he cannot determine how Rymko died.

    Yes he was discharged the day before from hospitol He had left a voicemail on his mothers phone saying Code Red and she said it sounded like he was running. That was last contact. He went to the hospitol for mental health help. They should have never discharged him. Its possible some foul play happened. IF Anyone knows anything about foul play there is a Reward.

    At least WNEP gets the news out about this. Every other “news” organization buried this?

    The Poconos are a dumping ground with inadequate police coverage. Without articles like this, we never will get the coverage.
