Au­thor­i­ties work to ID hu­man re­mains

The Standard Journal - - POLICE & FIRE -

AT­LANTA — Au­thor­i­ties are work­ing to iden­tify hu­man re­mains found in Ge­or­gia.

Spald­ing County Sher­iff Dar­rell Dix said in a state­ment Fri­day that a per­son rid­ing a four-wheel all-ter­rain ve­hi­cle found a hu­man skull near a creek on Sun­day, but thun­der­storms in the area pre­vented of­fi­cials from in­ves­ti­gat­ing the scene.

The At­lanta Jour­nal-Con­sti­tu­tion re­ports deputies and the Ge­or­gia Bureau of In­ves­ti­ga­tion searched the area and found additional re­mains, cloth­ing and a shoe. Dix says no form of iden­ti­fi­ca­tion was found and there are cur­rently no in­di­ca­tors about what caused the death.

The re­mains have been taken to the Bureau of In­ves­ti­ga­tion Crime Lab for fur­ther ex­am­i­na­tion. Dix says in­ves­ti­ga­tors are also gath­er­ing in­for­ma­tion on miss­ing per­sons cases.
