Indiana State Police have released more information regarding human skeletal remains that were discovered in a Franklin County creek Sunday.
Sunday morning at approximately 11:00 individuals walking along Big Cedar Creek near Cedar Grove discovered the remains near the edge of the creek, ISP Sgt. Noel Houze said.
Investigators were at the scene most of the day searching the area for other clues. The remains were collected by the Franklin County Coroner’s Office and will be taken to the Hamilton County, Ohio Coroner’s Office Monday for DNA and other forensic testing.
“At this point it has not been determined whether the remains are that of male or female, adult or child, how long they may have been at the location, or a cause of death,” said Houze, adding that the identification process could take several weeks.
