Skeletal remains found behind Easton’s home, identified as missing since 2021, prosecutor says

Authorities identified the human remains found behind an Easton home earlier this month as a man who had been missing for nearly three years.

According to Bristol County District Attorney Thomas Quinn III, the bones were identified as belonging to then 25-year-old Mathew Yeomans of 113 Summer Street.

Yeomans was reported missing by his grandfather on September 19, 2021. Police say Yeomans was struggling with mental health issues at the time.

His wallet, identification cards and cell phone were found in his home at the time of his disappearance and he was never located.

On May 1, 2024, a homeowner found what appeared to be a human skull a few doors down from Yeomans’ home. State Police, Easton Police and the Bristol County DA’s Office all responded to the area and found more skeletal remains.

The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner used dental records with the bones found and positively identified them as belonging to Yeomans. No immediate cause or manner of death was known.
