Investigation Continues into Human Remains Found Monday

 

Huntsville, Alabama (May 8, 2008) Investigators with the Huntsville Police Departmentís Major Crimes Unit said it could take several weeks to determine the identity and cause of death surrounding the human remains of a skeleton found off Old Highway 20 near I-565 Mile Marker 5. The discovery was made Monday, May 6th, by a survey crew that called Police to the scene.

 

Spokesman Wendell Johnson said we have no further information to release until the Alabama Department of Forensic Science complete its examination to determine if the remains are a man or woman. Johnson said we are asking the public to please allow this investigation to continue without speculation from national and local news media.
