It was a grisly find - and surely one that no one wants to stumble upon - when a concerned citizen in Saratoga Springs alerted police last week about the possible discovery of "human remains".
According to the Saratoga Springs police, on Saturday, December 30th, 2023, at approximately 10:52 am, they received a call "from a citizen regarding possible human remains found in the area of South Broadway and Adelphi Street."
Police ID Body
A police investigation determined that the "possible human remains" turned out to be the body of a 79-year-old man named Paul Jamison, who according to the report, was last known to live in Glens Falls.
Police were able to preliminarily ID Jamison's body from the personal belongings he had with him at the time.
Jamison's body, according to police, was found near the intersection of South Broadway and Adelphi Street in Saratoga in a relatively high-traffic area near Mavis and Midas Tires, Concord Pools, and a Subway, all within earshot of the grisly find.
After an investigation of the scene, a tentative identification of the victim is Paul Jamison, a 79-year-old male with a last known address of Glens Falls. The identification was made through the discovery of personal property at the scene. - Saratoga Springs Police
