Additional skeletal remains found in Old Forge

Authorities found more skeletal remains in Old Forge.

Lackawanna County Coroner Timothy Rowland said on Thursday that state Pennsylvania State Police, Old Forge Police Department and investigators from the coroner's office and the county's detective unit conducted an additional survey of a wooded area above Pagnotti Park.

Rowland said other searches will be scheduled in coming weeks in a homicide investigation to find more remains of the late Robert Baron Sr.

Baron was reported missing on Jan. 26, 2017 after he failed to show up at his family's business, Ghigiarelli's Restaurant in Old Forge.

Barons’ remains were found in the area of Pagnotti Park in March, and a suspect was later taken into custody.
