Burned human remains found in a barrel behind Bridgewater state hospital last week have been identified.

Fingerprints were used to identify the remains as those of 24–year old Dennis Jackson of Haverhill, MA.

Partial human remains were also found last week in Boston's Hyde Park neighborhood.

Police are hopeful that a surveillance system in the area could help them identify the victim in that case.
