Searching for his long-missing father, Michael Carroll had over the years consulted psychics and ghost hunters to help him with the search.
The 57-year-old believes that the remains he found in his basement with the help of a ground-penetrating radar, are those of his father George Carroll, an army veteran who had been missing for nearly 60 years ago.
"This is almost a perfect crime but I wasn't supposed to find him", Caroll said.
The suspect, for Caroll, may likely be the man who his mother subsequently married, Richard Darress. But he died in June.
Police have been investigating since Michael's sons found the remains, digging a six-foot hole and breaking through a cinder block wall. The skull was fractured by blunt force trauma, according to police.
