NATCHEZ, Miss. (AP) _ The skeleton of a would-be burglar was found lodged in the chimney of a gift shop, solving the case of a man who disappeared in 1985.

The fully clothed remains of Calvin Wilson were found on Friday by masons renovating the antebellum building in the city's historic district.

Adams County Sheriff Tommy Ferrell said Wilson, 27 at the time, became trapped while attempting to enter the Riverboat Gift Shop through the chimney. Ferrell said it was likely that Wilson fell headfirst inside the chimney, was injured and could not call for help.

Ferrell said there was identification with the remains.
