MUNCIE, Ind. — Central Indiana police hope two rings found with human remains discovered last fall along railroad tracks can help them identify that person.

The mostly skeletal remains found in November in rural Delaware County are believed to be those of a white male between about age 30 and 50. They were found with extra-large blue basketball shorts, white men’s underwear and two distinctive rings.

The Star Press reports ( ) one ring is a rusty, rough band with a star-shaped flower. The other is a smooth, twisting metal band inscribed with a Bible verse from Philippians 4:6.

That inscription reads, “Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your request to God.”

Case details are posted online on a national database for unidentified persons.
