Providence police have identified the man whose skeletal remains were found at a construction site last year.
He said Seals graduated high school in West Virginia, served in the Air Force and lived in Providence from 1976 to at least 1982. He was about 45 years old.
A construction crew renovating a building on Prairie Avenue in south Providence last July found a human skeleton buried under a concrete basement floor at the bottom of what used to be an elevator shaft.
Workers also found a 1980s identification card from Rhode Island Hospital, a jacket with a fur collar, cigarettes and a bullet.
