The skeletal remains found by a hunter in a wooded area of central Maine have been tentatively identified based on a Virginia driver’s license found at the scene. State Police identified the man Monday as Paul Tolbert, 33, of Radford, Va., after his parents were contacted. DNA will be used to confirm the identification. The remains were found Saturday. Police said that there was no sign of foul play and that Tolbert had not been reported missing. He was in Maine attending a drug rehabilitation program in Winthrop. The remains appear to have been at the scene for more than a year.
