OCALA, Fla. (AP) - Authorities say a man found a skeleton inside a tent by the railroad tracks in Ocala.

Lt. Scott Fosler told the Ocala Star-Banner (http://bit.ly/12mscjd ) the remains found Sunday had likely been in the tent for between six months and a year.

Fosler says a skull could be seen inside the tent, partially covered by a blanket. He says other bones were scattered around the camp site. Fosler says there are no indications of foul play. But the Ocala Police Department is investigation.
