GLEN BURNIE, Md. — Anne Arundel County Police say thanks to a DNA phenotyping company, they are now able to identify the remains of what was once a 'John Doe' in a Glen Burnie cold case.

On April 23, 1985, the decomposed remains of a human body were found during the excavation of a construction site at the old Marley Station Mall. The body was found inside a metal trash container.

Police are expected to make an announcement about the findings Wednesday morning.
