Remains of homeowner's father found in basement

Human bones discovered in the basement of a NY home have been identified as those of a man who had been missing for almost five decades, authorities said Wednesday.

The medical examiner's office has confirmed the remains are those of George Carroll, who went missing in 1961.

"Previously, we said the skull was fractured due to blunt force trauma, however, that was not concluded as the cause at this point", a Suffolk County police spokesperson told ABC News via email on Thursday.

The police would only say they are investigating the case as a homicide. Carroll said there were always family rumors that his father might be buried there.

Finally, less than two months ago, Michael and his two grown sons excavated the basement believing remains would be found.

The death is being probed as homicide, yet Mr Carroll says the discovery of his father has brought sufficient closure.

Despite the find, Mr Carroll told the New York Post he's not looking for justice over what has become a murder investigation.

He said the story never sat well with him, but he hired researchers, psychics, even paranormal investigators to come to the house.

His mother, Dorothy Carroll, was left to raise him and his siblings in their Lake Grove home.

Carroll also said that his former stepfather, Richard Darress, his mother's second husband who moved in not long after George Carroll died, might have known something about the disappearance. "I feel great about that", Carroll told WCBS 880's Sophia Hall.

Suspicious from his mother's hesitance to speak of his father's disappearance, Mr Carroll made a decision to investigate himself after a psychic told him to check the family home for his father. He said the family plans to inter his father's remains in Calverton National Cemetery.

"I was told by the psychic it was blunt force trauma". "I'm gonna try to make it something good", he said.
