After a day of searching a wooded and remote hillside, the Sheriff’s
office has forwarded the recovered remains to the Coroner’s office.
Several search teams and three cadaver dogs completed their searching
late last night. All remains turned over to the Coroner will be
examined and evaluated for further identification. The forensic
analysis will take a reasonable amount of time.
At this point, we know that the remains are of a modern adult human.
There is no speculation on the identity of the remains from the
Sheriff’s office. The investigation is continuing, but we are evaluating
what additional steps to take next.
