Police identify remains found on Riverwood Avenue

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. – Human remains found on Riverwood Avenue last month have been identified as Timothy Reece, 50.

Bowling Green police opened the death investigation Nov. 19 after someone found human remains in a wooded area in the 200 block of Riverwood Avenue.

The remains were found in a wood line behind a Kroger on the U.S. 31-W Bypass, Bowling Green Police Department spokesman Officer Ronnie Ward said. Crime scene processors collected evidence at the scene.

Reece’s body was taken for an autopsy and through medical records, authorities were able to positively identify the body, Ward said on Twitter today.

A medical examiner determined that Reece died of natural causes, according to Ward’s tweet.
