Police say there are no signs of foul play after human remains were found in Delmar on Sunday.

The remains have been identified as an adult woman from the Capital Region. However, police are withholding her name, pending notification of family.

The remains were found Sunday afternoon in a wooded area behind 55 Delaware Avenue -- the Hoffman's Car Wash.

At the time of the discovery, investigators had said they were so decomposed, they couldn’t identify ethnicity, age, or gender. They also didn’t know how long the body had been there.

Police also say the cause of death is "undetermined." The body was too decomposed to tell whether, for example, the woman died of a heart attack or the elements.
